I am moderately youngish looking 70 year old practicing attorney and I have just had a full denture
installed. The dentist
was very very competent but seemed resistant to providing useful info regarding thin dentures
I suspect because maybe a little stuck in her ways.
JA: Have you seen a dentist about this yet?
Customer: The acrylic denture provided looks good and feels good but speech issues small but noticeable that I have not been able to overcome in the last 36 hours.
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.
Customer: Since the same day extraction there remains some swelling but the speech issues ARE caused by the thickness up front
. My dentist does do implants and we both believe they would allow for more comfortable and familiar speech habits on my part.
JA: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?
Customer: They are, however, cost prohibitive. What are my alternatives in thin denture category and how much do they cost? To answer your question two day since the extraction of the four upper teeth and replacement of the same day denture.
