Question unclear: If you have a partial and support teeth remain, it can often be rebuilt (added to ). If not , then you nmay need a new one made. If all the teeth will be extracted, then se about an immediate complete denture. See a prosthodontist to find out your options. Good luck.

Depends: If the partial still fits have your dentist reline them so they fit better. If they don't fit after surgery you don't have a choice but to have new ones made.

Are partial dentures a good alternative to implants?

They do work: Partial dentures (fixed & removable) have been around a lot longer than implants. Even tho implants are the standard of care they do have their drawbacks. Very expensive. They are very good but for those who can't afford them partial dentures do very well in most cases. If the partial dentures are your only bet, then many do their best to get used to them and make them work.

I am taking 60 mg phenobarbital daily after my skull tumor operation in 1995. What precautions should I take for my daily routine?

Ask yourself why: Was it a skull tumor or brain tumor? Why was the drug started in the 1st place? For seizure prevention? Have you ever had a seizure? Do you still need it? If you still need a seizure med, why phenobarbital? That's a bad drug for adults: bad for your bones, not great for your liver either. Go see a neurologist and ask him/her to reassess everything.
