Hi all,

I have had a denture put in today straight after extraction and it feels really big. Here are a list of my problems:

Gap between the roof of my mouth and the partial denture.

Edges of the denture are half way down my teeth so every time I bite it pushes my front teeth and they are crowns so it has now made one wobbly.

I cannot chew anything as the gap between my back chewing teeth is too big so nothing is getting chewed. Dentist said I have a number 2 bite what ever that means. I do have an under bite think thats what its called.

Its quite distressing as i had a weekend sorted and now i really can't go as i cannot eat :(:cry:

Re: Partial Denture

I always tell patients that the only time they'll be really pleased to see me is right after getting an immediate denture fitted. They always need adjustment and the poor patient always has a bit of a nightmare for the first few days.


It sounds like a cliche, but give it some time, go back to your dentist asap and things will be a lot better quite quickly.
