I just got my dentures this week, the acrylic kind. When I came back a day later, for initial adjustments, I noted to the dentist that one side still had a gap between the contact area of the teeth on one side, albeit small and largely imperceptable to me. He said he wanted the fit to be better, so he took out the dentures and began to grind away on the tops of several teeth that had 'high points'. He said this was normal to do after I had questioned him about this. Now, several teeth are partially flattened/distorted, and they feel unnatural to my tongue. I would think that grinding on acrylic would damage it, or make it prone to further damage.
Has anyone else had this type of experience?
