Hi, I am desperate! I had to have my top teeth removed about 16 months ago due to absess’s and severe infection. Previously had very healthy teeth. I had some gold crown at the bottom which sheared off so a few bottom teeth were removed prior to the top. My dentist used a sedative on me to remove my teeth but with awful consequences, I am allergic. Was ill with low BP for 3 weeks after. He made me a new set of dentures 6 months after removal. They did not fot. He told me to glue them in! He then made me a new set last April. The bottom set did not line up so he threw them straight in the bin and just gave me the top set. They do not fit they rock and fall out if I yawn or anything. He told me to glue them in. I only have the bottom 6 teeth nearest the front of my own. My face in now older looking, I can not eat only soggy or mashed food. I have not eaten meat now for 16 months. I am very depressed with it. I am only 54 years old. That dentist has now left the practice and a young new one has taken his place. She said she would make me a new set. but then questioned when I last had a set and accused ME of binning them. I am not a wealthy person so had to have a NHS set last time. I have an awfull gag reflux so taking impressions is horredouse to me. I am on disability benefits due to medical problems, e.g. Anaphylatic, svere allergys, Asthma to name but a few. Now she says I have severe oral thrush so she can not make any dentures, and I should make an appointment some time in the future. I am really sad and do not know what I should do. What would it cost me if I tried to save up to get it sorted properly? What can I do ?
