User Level:
Patient
Posted by: docbrown2015  (4 years ago)
I'm 30 and male and my top teeth rotted and went bad due to a severe over bite and grinding my teeth when chewing and gastric Ulcer problems in my late teens. and I visited my Dentist and he told me the best way to go is a top Denture to make my bite even and I hated the idea because i'm 30 and i'm not 80 and I can't afford Implants so I chose to get a top Denture, so the Dentist pulled the rest of my top teeth and the roots and nerves and now I am top toothless still trying to heal, can't chew any food and i'm really miserable I can't even look in the mirror without getting scared.. so the Denture was made and I tried putting it in and it really hurts my gums and it doesn't go flush on my gums and it doesn't stay in, it wants to fall down, everyone told me that I would get a suction where it would stay in and they all lied to me, also the Denture looks so fake with big horse teeth, bigger than my whole mouth. I can't even talk with it in. I don't know what to do? I am seriously considering killing myself over this because a life with old man Denture mouth without enjoying food again and every time I talk they fly out my mouth.. I would rather die.. I don't know what to do, someone please help me.

Well, please don't deny the world a valuable life by killing yourself!

I don't know how you had your denture fabricated, but it probably wasn't the right way.

1. The opposing lower arch has to be intact to provide stable chewing.
2. The back teeth should have been extracted first, and the bone allowed to heal at least three months.
3. Then an immediate denture impression could have been taken.
4. The denture would be fabricated, and only your front teeth would be extracted at your final appointment.

Or better yet, all your upper teeth should have been extracted, at least 3 months allowed for healing, then dentures made.

A good denture takes at least 5 appointments to construct. They are not cheap, either.

The mistake the majority of denture patients make is to go to a cheap film-flam denture clinic, which takes all sorts of shortcuts. If money is the issue, you might try going to a dental school. You will save money, but it takes a long time to get the work done.
