Hello, I had to have 9 teeth out last year, I cannot tolerate acrylic in my mouth so opted for hypoallergenic Valplast. I like it and it's quite comfortable after dentist adjusting it a lot. But it's quite a big partial, it's top and I only have 4 crowns and one real tooth left. The real tooth is right at the back and the denture has a ring around to hold it to this tooth, the problem is I have problems getting it out. I have got very anxious about this, if I do as the dentist says and 'click' it into place I really struggle to get it out, and it can really hurt pulling on that back tooth. I am now too scared to use it and feel I shouldn't be shouting 'OUCH' when taking it out. It is very secure when in, but I wondered if I had a 'clip' around it would it 1. be easier to take out, and 2. hold it in place securely. I haven't been able to eat properly for over a year through all the treatment, and now because I am too anxious and scared to wear it. I desperately want to wear my denture, but I just want to put it in and take it out easily without all the build of anxiety and being terrified. Just hoping for advice re the ring and a clasp before I go and see my dentist again. I cannot have acrylic or metal in my mouth due to allergies. Thank you so much if you can advise me.
