I don't know where you live, but in the UK, this type of work is best carried out by a general dental practitioner. Unless you are referred, you do not need to see a specialist for this simple treatment.

You have (possibly) 4 options 1. do nothing, leave a space, and don't replace the teeth 2. possibly a "bridge" or a "fixed partial denture" (FPD) 3. possibly a "plate" or a removable partial denture (RPD) 4. possibly an implant(s) with a crown The answer depends on a variety of factors and will need to be discussed with your dentist. Not all options work in all circumstances.

Both are able to provide partial dentures. I would go to who you are most comfortable with be it you dentist or a specialist.

A partial is an artificial body part, very much like a prosthetic leg or a glass eye. It takes time to adjust to wearing it. Sometimes fine adjustments need to be made by the dentist to get it to fit perfectly. Your dentist should make these adjustments at little or no charge, at least for the first few months after the initial placement. If you are unable to make the adjustment to wearing the partial after several months, you should discuss your options with your dentist. You may be a candidate for dental implants. They are more expensive than a partial, but they are far more easy to get used to, and they are a permanent alternative to partials.

Yes, you can get a replacement. You will need to leave your partial with your dentist and it probably won't be ready for about a week.

Any general dentist can make a partial denture for a senior. However, there is a specialist dentist called a prosthodontist who specializes in dentures and partials.Just search Google for 'prosthodontist' in your area.
