Buck Teeth Dentures: I got dentures when I was 25 years old and never had a problem with them.
Now I am 55 had a new set made because the old set was so worn down. These dentists don't know how to make them properly.
They hurt badly and keep making sores in my mouth and people say it looks like I have buck teeth. I kept going back to have them adjusted and they cannot get them adjusted right.
I already paid $5000 for them, I don't want to spend any more money. What can I do? Is there any dentist out there that knows what the heck they are doing these days?
Don't say get implants... I surely cannot afford them. ...Visitor from CA
I would suggest that you see a dentist who prides himself or herself on making high quality, beautiful and functional dentures.
Most dentists hate making dentures because they don't charge enough for them, don't take enough time or care to make them fit properly, and then have lots of adjustments.
You might look for a dentist who uses the Turbyfill method. I would see the second dentist, let him evaluate your new denture, and suggest whether to negotiate a partial refund on your present dentures.
Your old denture and photos of yourself before you had your teeth extracted can be valuable tools to make a denture that wil fit you and fnction well.
