Hi there, if his remaining teeth are healthy...you can either opt for flexible partial dentures or removable partial dentures... But if they are not in healthy condition...u can go for extraction followed by either complete denture or implant supported complete denture. Take care..!!

Flexible partial dentures would be more comforting then then the usual rigid partial dentures. The other advantage being no metal parts, which could be discomforting at times.
