Hello all. I'm new here, and new to dentures also. I received my first upper denture this past Monday, and just today, i'm being told by friends and fam that my dentures are nice but too big. My father wears them and never had to use adhesive to keep them in. My dents will not stay in my mouth without adhesive. Im being told that they should just stay up without adhesive. When I got them, the first thing the dentist did was put adhesive on them without allowing me to try them w/o adhesive. My question is...are my dents too big? can they be adusted? can they be remade smaller so there will be no overbite(cause there is one)?
Thanx for any assistance. Orthospam
Very unhappy new denture wearer.
