I am wondering if i could get a brief synopsis here of the steps done to put in dental implants using an existing denture.

Retrofit synopsis: Current denture examined carefully for ideal functioning before implants. The bone quality and health history of the patient is examined and then implants are placed. The upper jaw requires more time than the lower for the implants to be stable. 5-6 months for the upper, 3-4 for the lower as a guideline. Parts are ordered to connect the denture to the implants. More detail needs to be provided. ...Read more

I had full top extraction 4 wks ago and was fitted with a temp denture. swelling is going down, and it is poor fitting. What can i do? Glue dont help.

Poor Fit: When a temporary denture is made, it is made by a lab that is "guessing" how you will heal following the extractions. I recommend that you have the DDS reline your denture with a material that will provide a fit according to your healing. I usually provide this a week or two following the extractions. ...Read more

Since i only have six upper teeth, would it be a good idea to pull the remaining uppers and go with full denture?

I just had a reline done on my denture i hate it can it be removed?

Reline: What is it you hate about your reline? Was the denture placed immediately after extractions? Is it a new denture replacing an old one? Is it an old denture being relined in lieu of fabricating a new denture? Is it a hard acrylic reline or a soft reline? To answer your question, yes it can be removed, but to be able to achieve comfort my questions need to be answered as well. ...Read more

Heat cure acrylic resin upper denture problem. Do I have to go back to the original dentist?

Heat cure acrylic resin upper denture problem.  Do I have to go back to the original dentist?

Not Necessarily: If you have a denture problem, it's generally best to see the original dentist again. Not only is he/she most familiar with your specific case, but he/she probably won't charge as much to perform follow-up work on something he/she fabricated. A new dentist is okay too, but it may cost more. If your original dentist can't help you, then you'll have to find someone else, obviously. Either way is ok. ...Read more
