I am being told that I need to have my front teeth pulled and that I can only have a removable partial.
Implants are not recommended because these are front teeth. One of my front teeth is broken off and the other is loose. I am missing one on the side of the right front tooth.
I really don't want to lose my teeth and go to a removable partial. My alternative is to have the broken tooth posted and a crown attached, and have a partial for the missing tooth and leave the loose one there until it falls out. ... Visitor from MN
Without seeing an xray or picture it is difficult to say, however, I find it hard to believe you can not have an implant.
If you have bone loss then you would need grafting first but you can still have an implant.
If you have generalized severe gum disease and the only treatment is extractions, then
they would probably remove teeth, make a temporary partial or denture, graft and then place implants.
