Problems with Valplast Dentures

User Level:
Posted by: rosal_in_newyork  (8 years ago)

I recently acquired Valplast dentures for my top and bottom and they do not seem to be working for me. The texture of the dentures feel rough. My mouth feels dry and I get food residue most of the time. I cannot eat or talk well because they fit so badly. They easily slip. The clasps dig in to my gums, which I found to be very uncomfortable and painful. When I bite down, they would shift side to side and this is painful as well. When I told the dentist about this, I was so frustrated because he left me feeling that the problem is on me. What should I do? I paid so much for my dentures only to have this kind of disappointment. Can I switch to acrylic if my symptoms won't improve? Please help me!

Hello there. First of all the dentist can not blame you for experiencing discomfort with ill fitted dentures. How long have you been wearaing your valplast dentures? If you have not gotten used to them and the dentures impede your swallowing and chewing then your dentist should make adjustments or redo your impressions to get a better fit. You paid for quality and comfort so do not feel bad and make sure to let your dentist know of your expectations.
