I got a new partial and top plate after having old top plate for about 3 years. The lower partial had been broken about a year.
I went back a week ago after getting a new set because the partial was hurting and rubbing sores. The top place fit good with only a few tight spots. After adjusting the partial, the assistant took the upper denture, but didn't use the powder to see where the plate was tight or rubbing, and did an adjustment to front.
Now it feels loose behind my front teeth. There doesn't seem to be any suction or air between roof of mouth and denture. My top lip no longer looks as full. What could she have done? .... Visitor from Winnsboro
It is impossible to comment on what "could have been done" without being seen and evaluated in person.
Most "accomplished" dentists do the denture and/or partial adjustments themselves.
You may want to contact your state dental board for assistance in determining if your treatment experience has been appropriate and what recourse is available to you.
