Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

That is not true. A complete denture can be made even with a shallow palate. If your general dentist has said no, please take a second opinion from a Prosthodontist.

Hope this answers your question. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.

Good Luck !

Regards,
Dr. Behere
