I finally plucked up the courage to sort out my smile and this morning had my top 4 front teet removed and was fitted with an immediate partial denture. It feels strange of course but I am concerned as there seems to be a gap at the front of the partial of 1 - 1.5 mm between the partial and my gum.. is this normal??? I was given very little info after having it fitted and was more than happy to pay the bill and get out of there! What do I do about the gap, is it normal?? The partial fits and feels ok at the back of my teeth but I catch my top lip on the top of the partial and I'm anxious it will fall out! I also feel that it has changed the way my back teeth line up as it was really strange when I tried to chew on my back teeth and it's made my jaw ache!!! Any advise ?
