Years of sensitive teeth, a childhood of nightmare dentistry, leading to gum disease and 6 teeth lost. Went through the extraction ( boy has that improved) and immediate partial. After reading here, and asking a few questions, I opted for the flexible partials despite the cost. They are fabulous. In and out in seconds, light and comfortable. I can wear them all day, speak and eat normally with minimal movement. Now, despite the buttock clenching fear, I'm seeing the hygienist regularly.

I echo the Congrats! I was thinking about getting those too.... Great to hear that they are comfortable, and that extraction methods have improved since I was a kid....
