How do I reach corporate office for Affordable Dentures?

My dentures must have been made by a child in kindergarten. The wax try in were much better than the finished product and even they were too long in my mouth.

Getting denture adhesive off my gums and the roof of my mouth

I just got my dentures 2 weeks ago. My dentist said I could use the adhesive today. I used it, waited for 45 minutes to eat and it didn't hold at all. So needless to say, I took them out and YUCK! I was gagging and thought I was going to vomit. I was sending myself into a full blown panic attack
