My NHS upper denture is rubbish would a flexible denture be better?

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
Dear justin
thank you very you very much for your reply, i guised implants would be very expensive. could i please ask one last question? as stated the N H S upper denture i had fitted 9 months ago is rubbish i can not eat or talk with them,mind you some of my friends find this very comforting. On returning to my dentist he recommends a flexible upper denture that doesn’t need any of that nasty fixing gum. he is a great guy my dentist but i don’t understand his accent he’s from the middle east, i have talked to the head receptionist she tells she has never seen this type of denture.
im 74 Justin and for £450 this sounds a great denture i would be very grateful for
your opinion . sorry for the typing this is my first month using a computer

p s the bit i did understand is the upper denture has no roof
pushes against the gums and stays put.im very grateful to you Justin for your assistance
JT
