Could you start by turning off the caps lock key, it makes reading the message really awkward. Thanks :D

Partial dentures will compromise the bone grafting and lessen the amount of available bone for the implants. That seems a bit silly considering how much money you're spending on it.

Most people can manage really well with just premolars to chew with, indeed some Scandinavians think this is the optimum dental arch for patients to manage. Joan Crawford allegedly had her molars removed to accentuate her cheekbones :D
