Hello, my mother's upper jaw has 4 missing teeth on the left upper jaw and 2 missing teeth on the right upper jaw. She doesn't want to go for a bridge replacement nor the fixed one as it was very much painful for her to bear. She asked me to find out if some temporary sort of replacement could be possible for her. Please suggest.

I would suggest, you should go for fixed teeth, there will not be any pain complain. Fixed te teeth are more comfortable n more efficient. If any how she wants removable then you can go for flexible partial dentures, they are more comfortable then others.
For exact treatment suggestions, we need some more investigations including clinical examination and some clinical pictures of her. Without seeing the position of remaining teeth, no dentist can suggest exact treatment plan. However you can convince her for fixed teeth if she can, that's my opinion.
If she is not willing for fixed options,then we have very good removable partial dentures like the cast partial dentures in combination with precision attachments which are very reliable and comfortable,semi flexible/flexible partial dentures which are not harsh on the tissues.

if she is not willing to go for bridge or I. plant then you are left with only one option which is removable partial denture.
but I feel you pl consult some dentists, hopefully someone will be able to gain her confidence as far as pain is concerned & then she can go for a better treatment option.
It is difficult to finalize the treatment without seeing the condition of other teeth. However if patient is not willing for bridge or implant then removable flexible valplast dentures are an option but it depends on condition of teeth present
