Reline

So I’ve some adjustments to my denture (full upper) and now they won’t stay in even with adhesive...I have been advised to only use it on the roof as my sockets are still healing. The denture tech is useless and didn’t do a temp reline at my app even though I told him there is no contact between my gum and the denture at the front, and they are now closed over Christmas. Is there some sort of cushion thing I can cut and stick in the front to make it sit flush against my gum? I’m thinking of just cutting some gauze and shoving it in there if I can’t find anything else lol

Hey, look, 12 views and none of them responded.

If you did the adjustments yourself, no dentist in their right mind will mess with it and will always be "upset" (act all passive-aggressive with you forever more.  If they did the adjustments then they screwed them up (as is typical because they don't think that temporaries matter much because they are only temporary.  However, those three days to three months are a hell of a lot of time to us!!) and they need to fix them and fix them when you tell them to fix them.  Next time, don't leave the office until they fix them; get loud, cry, suggest calling the newspaper or local tv channel (that's what I did).

The first thing to do is to shout this, literally outloud, and never forget it "I WILL NOT ALLOW DENTISTS, PERIDONTISTS, DENTURE TECHS AND DENTAL OFFICE EMPLOYEES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ME AND I WILL SPEAK UP AND MAKE SURE MY VOICE IS HEARD OR THEY WILL GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK!!!"  If they didn't listen to you, if you made yourself clear, with your temporaries, what do you think will happen with your permanents?  

I haven't used it myself, but people swear by the Sea Bond Adhesive Wafers. 

If that doesn't work, G.E. silicone caulk will stick and fill in the gap.

Sea Bond is like a "cushion". You can cut them to add where you want. Hope it helps.

I’m in Australia and so far haven’t seen seabond here. As for being temporaries, I’m not sure how it works anywhere else but I got immediates and these are my permanent dentures. When I went in for the adjustments he told me that I will likely need a new set made and unless he’s gonna do it for free then F&@k that! I paid $2000 just for this set😱 

I’m so disappointed with it, I honestly feel they gave me the wrong teeth with how off the bite/fit is! I can’t smile big as all you can see is gum and it’s horrible. I’ve always had a bit of an overbite but these have made it way worse...it’s not the same thickness all way round the denture either, it’s almost see through in some places on the roof and the above the front teeth😔
