Re: question about dentures?

Hi tdmap, I had this same problem yrs ago, I had 11 teeth cut out at one time. I also have a very small mouth. The dentist will make an impression with dental clay that they put in you mouth. Then from that impression they make your teeth and make any adjustments that need to be make once they put them in. When they cut my teeth out they put me to sleep to have them pulled out. It really wasn't that bad I didn't feel anything.

Hi,

Just like Rayfaye smentioned on her post, the dentist will take an impression of your mouth, both upper, and lower. Don't worry about the size of the dental teeth, they'll be fine. What my dentist requested was a picture of me when my mouth, teeth was somewhat okay. This picture was sent to whoever makes the dentures, along with the impressions. I guess, they want to see the overall look of bone structure, teeth etc. It worked for me...Also, my mouth was extremely small. The dentist had to use a child's dental tray to take the impression. Shocked cause I have full lips, I thought I had a large mouth, just the opposite...You'll be fine....Vergie

Re: question about dentures?

go to a denturist for your dentures not a regular dentist. Find a denturist in your phone book with lots of years of experience. It is important for dentures to fit. Important that you are happy with your dentures.
