I had all my teeth pulled in Dec. 2006. I have a bleeding disorder which caused my bleeding gums. I was told that implants were required. .!!! So i have eight implants. Four top and four bottom. I was given temporary dentures until the implants healed. Time passes and i heal and dentist changes his mind, to use these original dentures, to cut costs.
I am not happy, these dentures don't fit. They don't line up. I really look
stupid and have this big upper lip from these dentures. I was told 'hey, dentures are never like real teeth'. I was told, 'get use to it'. I was told
'thats the best i can fit them'. My bottom teeth fit - in front of my upper teeth, which tells me that the bite is way....off. Plus I feel like BIG MOUTH
-------all teeth and no room to put food when i eat.
Yep, another opinion needed and i also got a metal allergy test done.
I have eight implants that will never be used. I have a investigator with the department of health, regarding my case. Don't let your problems get to this point. To remove implants costs the same as to put them in. Implants are not required on the top. (suction works there). Implants are over-rated.
It's all about the money. Implants are BIG money. Implants fail often.
Causes are many, like the medicines you are on, health conditions ect.
I found a denturist with 30 years experience. Making dentures is an art. Few can do this work. My new dentures fit like a glove. Look like my teeth. I can sleep with them. I can talk and eat with them. They work better and feel better than my real teeth and finally I am out of pain. I went thro' ten months of hell........ so beware of dentists. ! ! ! !
Get metal testing before you let them put anything in your mouth.
Get a second opinion, ALWAYS.
Get an estimate of costs on letterhead paper and in writing as to what comes 'Free' with the job.
Caution: Most dentists do not want to give you a esitimate, unless they are doing the work. If this is the case, RUN.
