Last bottom left molar (solid in place) has a 2 unit removable partial attached. Will this last tooth shift out of place if i get 2 dental implants?

Should not shift: If you continue to wear the removable partial while the implants are being integrated. Modification of the partial might have to happen. This will also prevent the top teeth from super erupting.
