Question:
Don't like my dentures: I need a dentist to help with TMJ and to make dentures that look close to real.

Is it possible to have dentures that don't look and feel like the ugly dentures I have now?

I am tired of the pain and I hate the way they look. ...Visitor from PA

Answer:
Your TMJ issues are best treated by a qualified dentist or oral surgeon who is heavily experienced in TMJ therapy.

If you are having a lot of pain and discomfort in your jaw joint areas, you can calm them down a bit at home. You can take 800 mgs of Motrin or Advil every 6 hours for a day or so, as these 2 over the counter medicines are to reduce inflamation.

Along with the Motrin, place hot towels on your TMJ joints 20 minutes on, then 20 minutes off for a few hours. This should ease the pain for awhile, but a TMJ evaluation by a TMJ specialist is warrented.

To answer your second question, yes there are Cosmetic Smile Makeover Dentures that look like real teeth. They are made with special "gum" acrylic that is stippled like regular gum tissue,and can be made with small realistic looking blood vesscles as well.

The front teeth are made with a special type of dental porcelain (not plastic or acrylic) that look gorgeous. Most people would not know you are wearing dentures.

Also, if your current dentures are loose, and not very retentive, a few dental titanium implants can help really keep them in and secure them.
