fix a dent should work. If not, a surgical implant to hold down the
infection with anti biotics will take a few days to get into your system ,take some pain killers as well,but pain should ease then.
if its a top partial ,you wont need any fixodent ,as the suction from the roof of the mouth holds the denture there.but if your not confident enough and want to use it ,try it
an implant ,is very expensive ,also not everyone can have implants,you cant while there is any infection there anyway.also your jaw bone will have to be tested to whether your mouth is going to accept the implants
also implants only last aobut 10 years then they have to be replaced
if you go for implants ,look into it thoroughly and ask a lot of questions,before starting treatment,let them re assure you ,that you are suitable for implants otherwise if the implants reject you,i doubt if you get your money back
