Hi Debbie, I also have a partial denture caused by fainting and breaking four teeth in the process.
I hate it!!!! I was told tooth implants are not always successful for people with Arthritis conditions. So I choose not to go down that path. It is far to costly if the implant doesn't take. Speak to your Dentist they will be honest with you (or should be).
I hope you get some answers soon. Take care.

Thanks for your reply,i am only on my 5th day with partial,it is 1 front tooth and 3 on side,it is a flexi denture which is supposed to be more comfortable then the metal clip ones,which I had on side teeth,before I had to have front tooth out and was made a flexi one,i take it out at night and dread having to put it in when I get up,i was in tears this morning,been back to dentist twice to get it shaved where it was rubbing,now it just feels like a vice in my mouth,dentist says I will get used to it,but now I am so depressed,then looking at implant option such a long and expensive option,then not knowing if it will take,sorry to go on so much,just wanted to have a little rant,
