Hi everyone, i do so hope to get some advice.
I'm 57 yrs old and have had dentures since I was 18. Full upper and partial on the bottom. I've had 2 different sets of dentures made thoughout my life with absolutely no problems. (Different dentists each time.)
Last year I had a new set of dentures made. It had been over 20 yrs since I've gotten new set of dentures.
The dentist could not get my bottom partial to fit. I had several return visits and spent a great deal of time in the dentist office throughout 2011. I even got a free re-make (new impressions etc.) but those didn't work either.
Finally I requested my money be returned to me so I could see a different dentist, and I got my money back.
This January I had a new set of dentures made by a different dentist. The upper denture is wonderful but the partial does not fit. I have had 13 return visits for adjustments. I still have sore spots on my gums and will need to return again.
( I have 2 of my own teeth on the bottom to which the partial clasps)
I'm disgusted and discourgaged and I don't know what to do. I welcome any advice y'all could give me. I'm desperate for some relief. This ordeal is like a nightmare.
