2nd opinion: If you are not having any luck with your dentist, then see a prosthodontist. They specialize in dentures, and may be able to help you work with what you have. The tissues shrink and we add soft material to help the fit as this changes. No need to live with it like it is. ...Read more

You are obviously finding out, first hand, that traditional dentures 'suck' compared to the more modern solutions. And after you've gone through the healing process, you will find that, later, this entire ordeal was actually worth the discomfort right now. ...Read more

Is it hard to eat with false teeth?

Is it hard to eat with false teeth?

Depends what you eat: Generally speaking, it is more difficult because you only chew at about 50% chewing efficiency with complete upper and lower dentures. The main reason being that the dentures move. As a consequence, it's more difficult to eat harder, crunchier foods. Biting into sandwiches can also be challenging for some. So, if you like to eat these types of foods, like most of us do, then you may have a problem. ...Read more
