I’m about to have six teeth pulled from the same area. What are my options for replacing the teeth?

You have a couple of options. Which you choose is probably dependent on your budget.
The least expensive of the two is a removable partial denture. These attach to the area without any permanent fixture. There is a downside of bone loss, which is important to consider.
A better option is to get dental implants. However, this option is more expensive. This places permanent fixtures in your jaw and has a restorative tooth on the fixture.
I would look for a qualified implant dentist in your area and let him evaluate your case. He’ll be able to determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
