I have worn dentures for 45 years. I am 82 years old.

I recently had new dentures made but am experiencing problems in getting them to fit. My old dentures fit very well. The old upper denture protruding slightly over the lower. The new dentures are even.

I have pain with the new dentures. I tried the new upper denture with the old lower denture and the upper protruded over the lower. I did not have any pain with this combination. My dentist says there is no problem with the bite of the new dentures.

Is there any way dentures can be made with a slight overbite? ... Visitor from TN

Yes, you can have a new set of dentures make with a slight overbite.

Just ask your dentist to copy the design of your old teeth. It's that simple.

If your dentist can't/won't do it, find a dentist who likes making dentures and "sets his own denture teeth".
