I think you are correct. Given all the factors you mentioned, such as cost and your age, a removable partial denture is a good option worthy of consideration. Implants are a great solution. But for many, the cost is prohibitive. And implants are much more invasive. They also take a long time between the initial procedure until the final restorations are placed. I've done many implants and many removable partial dentures over thirty years of practice. I have many patients who are very happy with both solutions. I think you should ask your dentist about whether or not a removable partial denture is an option he can deliver for you. It would likely be far less expensive, much quicker and less traumatic.
