Welcome .I will do my best to answer your question.I am not a great typist,be patient and feel free to ask if anything is unclear.If you did not have any problems with retention before these new dentures were made and now the new dentures won't stay in,the problem is with the dentures and not you.Did you have a try in stage before the dentures were actually processed?If the dentures were custom made,the way they should be made,you would have seen the dentures and tried them in when the teeth were still in wax so that you could approve the looks and size of the teeth.This would have also confirmed a proper bite .If this was not done,the dentures should either be made by someone else or they should start over going through the proper steps.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
