Dentures Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
Trigeminal Neuralgia I am considering getting dentures.

My dentist is not recommending them because of my trigeminal neuralgia.

Do most people with TN have pain with dentures? It seems it would be less pain than having to go through dental work. ...Visitor from NJ

Answer:
I am not an expert on Trigeminal Neuralgia. I will give you my gut feel for this.

If you are uncomfortable now, I would think that something removable that could put pressure on areas that hurt when they aren't touched, you may regret it.

If your teeth are at all salvageable, I think I would stick with them and not take a chance on something that could make your condition and pain worse.

If going through dental treatment is a problem, you might consider having lots of work done at once with sedation.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
