Hi, I am 36 and last week, I had 3 upper front teeth removed and a acrylic partial denture fitted on the NHS. As soon as the denture was fitted, it didn't fit. I was sent away with some fixident and the dentures in a paper towel. When I smile, the top part of the plastic gum is completly visible and catches on my upper lip. The plastic gum part completely covers the inside of my left and right upper teeth and is irritating them. The front of the gum part of the partial starts halfway down of my own gum line so the partial looks really odd. It looks awful and even with fixident is loose. I have made another appointment with my dentist this week. Can I insist on have a new partial made as I can't see how even with adjustments, this denture fitting. I have one upper front tooth remaining which is a bit loose and the dentist said in a few months, I can have a bridge (privately) made to relace the denture but I am worried if this is the right thing to do as the tooth is already loose. Feel so upset. Can I insist on a new partial for now and then in a few months time when my gums have healed, would it be better to have a valplast denture or go for the bridge? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! Also, does anyone have any tips to help with my speech sounding so bad Thank you so much in advance.
