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

Will teeth whitening work on my darkened root canal treated teeth ? ..internal tooth whitening inside out teeth whitening…

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008
Q.
I have always had a lot of problems with my teeth and in the last couple of years, I have had root canal treatment on my front teeth. The treatment has considerably darkened my teeth to the extent where I am now very conscious about smiling or showing my teeth. I am seriously thinking of having my teeth whitened but I am worried because I have heard it can sometimes do more damage and my teeth are not in very good condition as i have quite a few fillings etc. Do teeth have to be in good condition to undergo the whitening process? I am also not sure if the whitening would work because it has been caused by root canal? If you could offer any advice, I would be very grateful. L.
