Immediate Dentures Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
Two weeks ago I had all my teeth pulled and immediate Dentures put in. The top dentures fit my mouth but the teeth are way to far forward by at least a row of teeth.

The teeth now rest on my bottom lip. You can see my holes from my pulled teeth placement in the soft lining of the denture and when you hold them up to the light you can see that the teeth in the denture are not over where my old teeth were and are at least a row forward.

The bottoms are so bad I can't wear them at all. The bottom teeth of my dentures are even worse, they are about a row and half in front of where my old teeth were in my mouth.

The bottoms are so far forward my lip will not close over them .. it just sticks out. ... Visitor from AZ

I am sorry for your problems with the new dentures. I would suggest that you have a talk with your dentist about what can be done to make them look and function better.

If this doesn't help, you might want to seek a few more opinions while you can still see the extraction sites and where your natural teeth were.

If the other dentists agree that the position of the teeth isn't correct, they may be able to help you in negotiating with your dentist.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
