I had an extraction of my right tupper molar (next to the last tooth) 1 year ago.

I am not comfortable with getting an implant and am looking at getting a partial plate. What can you tell me about the metal materials used to make the plate? Are there concerns about toxicity from the metals?

How long can I wait to make a decision before being at risk of having my bite change?

There are lots of options for you to replace a tooth and sometimes metal toxicity is of concern with some patients.

Implants are made from a material that is biocompatable but if you are concerned about this then a removable partial is possible. I have not examined your mouth but maybe a nonremovable bridge is also possible and having it made of zirconium, which is a heavy duty glass, works very well.

Partials can be a problem, because the metal sometimes used is not of the highest qualty so it could be made with Valplast which is a special plastic material.
