Many patients have lost some or all of their natural teeth due to tooth decay,gum [periodontal] disease or trauma. A complete denture is a prosthesis designed to replace all of a patient’s missing teeth. Dentures are supported by the remaining jaw bone and gum tissues.maxillofacialprosth_smallFor some patients,this becomes difficult to tolerate,and in those cases we will employ dental implants to assist in the support,stability and retention of the complete denture.

Many patients have lost some but not all of their natural teeth. A partial denture is a custom prosthesis to replace those missing teeth,utilizing the remaining natural teeth for support and stability.American_Dental_AssociationRemovable partial dentures can be fabricated out of acrylic resin or acrylic resin supported by a custom cast metal framework.

Isn't there something called a "partial"?

It's something like wearing dentures, only it's for one tooth. Of course wearing a denture has all it's own shortcomings, like they have to be taken out and replaced daily along with the cleaning and messy adhesives. And they aren't always comfortable. That's why people get an implant or bridge. But the partial may be the cheapest option.

Veneers versus dentures

If you have teeth that can be saved, then hold on to them and get veneers. For the teeth you are missing you can get partial dentures (cheaper) OR get permanent implants (more expensive).
If you don't have insurance this will be expensive no matter what. Get your yellow pages out, find dentists, and start calling (explain your situation and what you think you need). Many dentist (the legitimate kind) will actually give you a free consultation and their ideas on what can be done.
For a cleaning and some ideas as to where to go, try UCSF - I believe they take people like you for clinical care and assessment

I finally made an appt with the periodontist

Just a reminder. I had an abscess, went to my dentist and he gave me antibiotics and referred me. His plan was to remove 4 back teeth, next time do the other back teeth and last do the front teeth on the lower. He gave me the referral re my top teeth.
The periodontist was very straightforward and had a sense of humor too! He said that he was surprised I didn't have more problems with my teeth than I do. I asked him "If my teeth are so bad why haven't they fallen out". He said because I have a hard head LOL
Anyway he would like to save some teeth so I can have partial dentures, especially for the lower teeth
