No teeth on one side and implant not an option

I have a situation in which I have only 1 tooth on my upper left side (I have only a few missing teeth elsewhere). I may have to get this tooth extracted as it is giving me trouble. I am a cancer patient and have been advised not to get an implant. I am wondering what options do I have? For example, can I get a denture that can be glued on that side? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

Most likely you are looking at a removable partial denture, which can also be adjusted easily enough, so that it doesn't cause unnecessary pressure on the remaining teeth. Acrylic dentures are also easy to add on to, which might be necessary, since cancer related treatments, might lead to the loss of additional teeth.
