I left this place crying because they tried to force bad dentures on me when I refused because they fit badly tech filed them down where they fit worse they did a hard cast that got stuck in my mouth and couldn't be pried out I almost threw up due to the pain only then did they send in doctor to deadend my mouth so he could extract them. My 9 year old daughter began crying and screaming because I started to scream and cry when tech used her fingernails to try to remove them the tech ushered her to the lobby and told her to stop crying and wait for me to get done. I was so appalled at this place that I refused to take the dentures and stopped payment with my insurance company. Please do research before you go to this place.

nothing upsets me more than a bad denture, or a bad dental experience, sounds like customer service is lacking at this place, did they offer you anything as you were leaving the clinic

Not a thing. An apology would have been a great start

I had a choice of affordable dentures or aspen dental in shreveport and visited them both. Aspen Dental was so far more advanced. And they saw me anytime I would pull up and go in. They wouldnt let me go until the dentures felt good. But a lot of my problems are my medical problems and slow healing! Aspen dental has 20% off on top of what insurance paid, plus first visit and xrays were free. They were much more pleasant to be around. Their equip was much more advanced! I would definitely refer anyonhe to them!

I'm new to this site, and dentures. 5 days in. I was lucky, Affordable Dentures in Shreveport La. has been so nice. Great customer service, as for the long term, don't know yet. I do know that I feel like I have an elephant in my mouth. Bottoms don't bother me much, the top is bugging me to no end, people say it will get better. Just wish I had a time line. Oh found something good to eat. Marie Callenders frozen key lime mini pie. Flavor, yea, and being frozen feels good. I do want to know how many people have had this bruising? Completely black and blue on both sides of my chin. Looks like a horrible fu man chu.

Hi Jacqueline, I am a little over 6 weeks in and doing well. My first three weeks the dentist wanted me to wear the dentures overnight to protect implants so I got very used to them and the elephant got a lot smaller. I did remove and clean them and put them back in for sleeping. I can now eat about anything I want, even chew gum if careful, the key for me is small bites and eat slow.

Thanks for letting me go, don't think I could stand it if there wasn't hope on the horizon.

Oh wow, I'm in La also. Saw one dentist who referred me to someone else in Baton Rouge, but I haven't been there yet. It's hard to know what to expect, I've heard both good and bad about Affordable. Sounds like a gamble.

  Dan  any  help or thoughts. I think my uppers are to heavy  the dentist said the uppers will stay in place ,no they haven't  he did two reline one was called a chair reline a month later he did a hard reline sent them out and still,  a bad fit . When I told him I was going to wait to see how they fit he refused to give them back . one thing lead to another ( for every action there is a reaction ) I paid and then stop payment on my card He also called the police .So needless to say I need to find someone to fix this badly fitting upper and lowers . I found a lab and the lab are going to try and fix them the lab also said if he can't fix them he would make another set
