DDS did relight in his office lab. Since then after wearing my teeth 3-4 hours each day burning sensation in center of upper over middle 4 teeth. If teeth are removed burning disappears if I leave them in the burning gets unbearable . The gum is sore but no ulceration noted. Could it be the product used to reline the teeth. I'm miserable. I haven't been able to bite anything in the front since I got them relined. They fit snuggly. I'd love a salad none for six monthsHELP
The way they're marketing it, Novus Liner sounds like the best thing since sliced bread!
Seems you may need special equipment to cure it after impressions are made?

I would like to go after the DDS and recoop the reline money but my husband says I've already been through too much and I should let it go.
I will write a review on his practice page when I calm down.
Once you're ready for implants: This is for an "Implant Retained Denture"= Go to the Oral Surgeon and get the implants placed. That same day I'm not sure who can do it for you but get your upper modified so that it gives some room for those implants. They may just put the implants in and temporarily stitch them up or may put what will look like the top of thumb tacks on top of them for healing time. So now adays they say it takes about 3 mths for implants to heal and bond with your bone. So that's why you need to get the upper modified so you can have your teeth while you're healing. Once you go for your check up after the implants have been placed they will tell you if it's good to go. They will place the locators or abutments (same thing but offices call them differently). Those will look like the pegs that will be sticking out of your gums. Then you can have what we call a "Repair". Get them to take impressions of your mouth. When they pour up your impressions into stone models it will be a replica of your mouth with the implants. They can use that stone model to know where to put holes and the "housings" (they look like little caps) into your denture. That's what is going to snap on to your denture. Can take about half a day to do that. Once that is done you can go back and sit in the chair and they will also put "o-rings" inside of the caps in the denture. There are different colors and they go by weight retention. Example 0lbs, 3lbs, 5lbs and there's a purple one now I think is 7 or 8lbs. Those tiny little buggers will give different retention on how much "weight" your teeth can take. Like a 0lb might be perfect for you or it can be a little weak and you feel you can take your denture out way too easy. Once they get the right one for you, you are good to go.
Keep in mind that you may notice after a few days the "o-rings" can be too weak or to strong. No one can determine that ahead of time. Those "o-rings" can wear through time- usually up to a few yrs. We have one woman that comes often because she likes to eat raw potatoes. lol. Anyways but when they are worn you can have them replaced and they're not expensive. We have them for $35 each. If you go this route and use your existing denture it will be way more affordable then starting a new one. Sorry I'm babbling again.
Talk about pain and suffering. I'm there.
