Compare valplast flexible vs. Metal single tooth denture for chewing & hot/cold drinks? Do they have different affects?

Hands down!: Replacing a single tooth with a flexible removable is silly, unless you really can't afford anything else and it is a front tooth that shows, or used for a short temporary replacement.

Can I have braces if I have 3 false teeth?

It depends : ..On exactly what you mean by false. If you have dental implants, they cannot be moved orthodontically. If you have a removable partial, your teeth can be moved but the partial won't fit properly. If you have a fixed bridge, it may be possible to section the bridge to move individual abutment teeth but you will need a new one afterwards.
