I am 45 years old. Recovering from cancer and diagnosed type 1 diabetic recently but well controlled now. Overwhelmed dealing with these health problems now I need the last three teeth on lowers on both sides extracted due to decay under bridges. I am so depressed and have been crying for days. I don't think I can afford implants. I am worried that a partial will destroy my remaining teeth with the clasps. My teeth look very nice and I want to keep the rest. Would mini implants to secure the partial be a better option. What kind of partial is best on back teeth considering comfort, looks, etc. Are there any patients happy will partials? Without implants won't the partial lift since there are no teeth behind the partial to support it. Please help me with a suggestion, my dentist was not very helpful and I am searching a new dentist, but I just don't know who to pick.
