Have you had dentures made for the bottom before? Do you have any remaining teeth? What do you use now and how do you like whatever you have?

I don't know if you are still around so I will do my best to answer your question with what info I have, If the denture is on the bottom than despite the tori a dentist should still be able to make you a denture that fits well. There are many low cost options to do this in Florida. I will provide a few for you to call.

1. Community health center of west palm beach Florida.

2823 N. Australian Avenue
West Palm Beach, FL - 33407

(###) ###-####/p>

Samaritan Gardens Christian Care Center Fees charged: No fees charged to qualified. Intake procedure: Must bring photo ID, proof of family income, and proof of address. First come/first served. Call to confirm hours of operation. Eligibility requirements: Resident of
email website

2. Atlantic Coast Dental research clinic

PO Box 19525
West Palm Beach, FL - 33416

(###) ###-####/p>

The Research Clinic facilities of the Dental Health Service Department at Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Florida, are utilized for classroom and clinical education. The goals of the Research Clinic are to provide an opportunity for continuing education of dentists, hygienists and assistants
website.

This second option would also be a great way of possibly getting some free or heavily discounted dental implants, if you really cant seem to get a denture that fits you well. Then I would suggest calling option two and volunteering to be a patient for a dentists who is an actual dentist but is learning implants to have the placed in your mouth. Then the denture can be fitted to those implants. That would be your best bet for a very low cost or free way to get some dental implants. Unfortunately the government will most likely never approve you for dental implants that can hold onto your denture even if that is the only way for you to wear one.

Just to note on the bottom you get away with only placing two implants and just having those implants help to hold the denture in place.

I hope this helps. if you have any other questions let me know.

I did spend time working at health centers in Florida in the past and I know though they will pay for a denture or help to pay for a denture, the odds of getting implants paid for is very very low.
