Question:  my dentures are made molded of acriylic with a 3/16th bite. I can't bite anything but soft food. What options do I have?

You need to see your dentist or prosthodontist to determine what is the best way of improving your bite. A prosthodontist is a dentist with three years of training beyond dental school who specializes in the care and maintenance of dentures.

Question:  I'm wanting to get dentures I have 27 teeth left that are breaking the decaying. Should I get some of them pulled at first and wait till the heal before i get the other teeth pulled? Or just get them all pulled at one time? I'm 27, a mother, full time student, and I work full time. I'm just worried how it's going to effect me daily. I really don't have time to run to the dentist so get them adjusted as the swelling goes down. Please help me I really need advice on what to do.

First of all, you should keep your own teeth if at all possible. If you do have 27 teeth that need to be pulled and cannot be saved, it is often more comfortable for you to have some but not all of the teeth pulled at one time. You may want to seek the care of a prosthodontist, a dentist with three years of training beyond dental school who specializes in the care and maintenance of dentures, as well as complex cases.

Question:  what kind a toothpaste i can use if i have bad breath

Mar 18, 2011 6:31 pm

Any of the common toothpastes can be used to clean natural teeth and they will help reduce bad breath. For dentures, a toothpaste needs to be used that is specially designed to clean dentures, which also can help reduce bad breath. However, bad breath can come from the lungs as you breathe and toothpaste doesn't always prevent bad breath from occurring.

Question:  cutting the middle out of my denture,(horseshoe) do you recommend this. its very irrating, and i am not happy with my dentures. i dont feel i can wear them this way for the rest of my life. too young!

Mar 18, 2011 6:27 pm

We assume you are talking about cutting the middle out of your upper denture. This can be done but affects the seal of your denture unless you have implants to hold your denture in place. Based on your feelings about your denture, you should see your dentist for advice.

Question:  what are upper denture without the roof called? whats the average price? didn't get a answer the first time. please reply asap. thank for your help.

Mar 18, 2011 6:26 pm

A denture that does not cover the roof of your mouth is called a "palate-less" denture. The cost varies depending upon the difficulty of the treatment and the condition of your mouth so you will need to contact your dentist or prosthodontist to determine the cost.
