Flipper: Your dentist can make an appliance which will temporarily replace the front teeth without resting on the graft area. Ask him/her about a "Flipper".

Not Necessarily: Each patient is slightly different. Obviously bone grafting can help preserve the ridge... a good ridge will help support a denture.
