I'm getting a roofless denture!! Yeah!

Anyone had these? They are just like reg dentures, but w/ no roof. I have a feeling I am going to LOVE these!!
I went to one of those discount places- for the perm uppers and the partial and panoramic it was 1900. I messed up my partial, and insurance won't pay for another one, so..And the cheaper teeth, you only have 2 shades to choose from-LOL! light yellow or YUK! HA!
Not bad, that's what i would pay for them w/ insurance anyway. They have cheaper ones than that, but they break easy, they say..
So I went for it- I'll let you know how they are..

Hey Wintersun!

Ive only heard of this when they use the Ultra Suction. I would like my roof out too, But I could not suggest such a thing in my dentist office, they would give me that LOOK....the "are you out of your ever lovin mind" look...lol

Hope

When you find out let us know what they are called.

I'm getting my permanents sometime soon, probably beginning of next month, I would love to ask about this.

Hope

Re: I'm getting a roofless denture!! Yeah!

Hello, I'm new and I saw this post. I lost my upper teeth and I wear full dentures, hate them with the gagging, etc.

I wonder if one needs implants to get these roofless dentures??

Hey wintersun,
If you don't mind me asking, why are you getting a roofless denture? My sister has a torus platinus, and she was told a top denture might not fit right, due to the lump. Wonder if a roofless plate would work for her.... Thanks for any info..

That's the same thing I got, so I wonder if that's why he suggested it??

Wintersun. This sounds great. Maybe you could call your dentist and ask the name of these dentures so that we can ask our dentists about them.
When will you be getting them? Good luck.
