Like we keep saying.  You should not put up wth pain and you should not be uncomfortable

Your dentist is responsible   for adjusting your  dentures and you must return to him  ASAP and tell him they must be adjusted because you can not handle the pain the the discomfort  Let him know that you are a patient  that has paid for a comfortable

denture and that's what you expect from him

Un the meantime since this is a learning blog so  keep everyone informed about your progress and your dialogue with your dentist.

This is the beginning of a Journey with your dentist and with your dentures so now is the time you must establish with your dentist that you require attention.  He should now that you are a high maintenence  patient that has paid her money and wants and needs attention and service and comfort

Take care of yourself and keep us informed

I guess im not the only one Barbara. Why are they insisting that we just live in pain. I am so mad and upset the more I think about it. How dare them. If it wasnt for people like us they would be broke and have no business. I read such horrible reviews about affortable dentures that im now afraid to give them the chance at fixing them. I wish they did have a email address then I would have proof I contacted them. I called again today, they put me on hold and never come back. Im giving them i more try. I will take them to small claims court. I paid for the most expensive.

Go "To the office." They don't like complaints in front of New Patients.

That's why if folks can, pay with a Credit Card. You have some "screw you" power in reserve.

Datson said you can charge back on your credit card??
Maybe he is right?
Why don't you call your credit card company and tell them you did not get what you paid  for from   the dentist.
Tell them the dentist  will not make an adjustment and ask to have it put in dispute and give you your money back. and then the dentist will have to make a decision on how to handle this
Maybe he has a good idea
Barbara
ps  Have you mailed that very good demand letter to the dentist??

When mine hurt my gums I leave them off at night. I use a Q-tip and put Camphophenique and rub it on. Next morning I put a little more adhesive in the area that is sore. Also my denturest says rub Vicks on the gums. He said rub the Vicks on the gums and put the denture on. The denture will keep the Vicks in place so it will heal the gum. You know Vicks has camphor in it.

Norma I have never heard of putting vicks on your gums. When I was working as a nurse they always said dont get vicks in month. It just seems weird to me that your dentist would suggest that. I just got my 3rd set of dentures and they were made to big. I am experiencing alot of pain. I never had any pain with my other sets. If your experiencing pain something is wrong. We shouldnt pay for expensive teeth to be told learn to learn with it or put vicks on your gums the dentsure will hold the vicks in. No we are entitled to new dentures that dont hurt, or be refunded the money we paid.

Sharon's, look on YouTube for= DenSureFit. Or Google it. They are a new company. They have a soft realign. I bought it and it helps. There are several videos on YouTube to see and if you Google it and go to their site they have a video. Everyone says you cannot beat their customer service. My dentures aren't bothering me now. My denturest put a soft liner in my bottom partial and I'm putting adhesive on top. I put it on my finger and put it where I need it and it doesn't. Get in my mouth to spit. Anyway that's what's helping me.

Everything you are saying is Right
You have to put them  on notice
Write a simple    "Demand"Letter rhat includes things like

This is a request for refund of $6,000  *or whatever you want #")
As I have told you I am in extreme pain.  This has never happenned before
Describe the pain

"Unable to even get an answer on your phone
If I do not recieve this in 7 days (date to be put down) I will take you to
court. 
I am afraid now to continue with anything at your Place of bussiness"
ETC ETC.
Type the letter
Send it registered and  return receipt  requested.
The internet has demand letters on it that you can pull up and read
and follow also
Look thru this blog and see what some other people have done

Take the pictures of your mouth as the court loves pictures
Once you send the letter you will get action and deceide what
you want to do going forward
It is a lot of work but it is a lot of money that you need to go
in to your next step which you will plan carefully.

If you go to other dentists (2 or 3)  that give free consultations they
will look at your mouth and tell you what has to be done to correct
all your problems
Let us know your progress because we are pulling for you

Thank you Barbara you are so sweet. Just reading your posts gives me the power to not let them get away with what they have done to me. I have been so miserable. I am afraid because I dont want them to really mess them up because they are so upset with me because I stood up for what is right. I read all there reviews tonight and they are all bad. Really bad. I will never do anything like this again without reading all reviews. They only have 2 and a half stars. Well, on my mark get set go i will get something done today. I will definitely let everyone know whats going on and what ive done. I hope noone makes the mistakes that I did concerning getting new dentures. This was suppose to be a happy moment in my life.

Thank you
You are one very smart person
I know this entire thing is very hard for you but you are pushing  yourself
to stand up for yourself.  These places are counting on people to
give up.   They have such nerve.  Then when you take This next step you will
feel better
Usually after a demand letter most private offices give up and return
the money or try to negotiate a lessor pay out.  We will see what they do
after they get your demand letter
That's step 1 and the really hard step
They are counting on you to give up but they don't know how
committed you are
If you need help with the letter reach out but remember the letter does
not have to be a masterpiece.  Just say your piece and send it
certified.  They will  get the message    Once they get the letter they will call
 you and we will go from there
Good luck
Barbara

Sharona and everyone
When you ask any questions or comment this site   would you try to include the price  of  what you aid for different services
Like
Upper denture $2,000
Lower             $1,800
We should really know what dentists are charging for different work so we have some
guide lies to look at when we get dental  estimates
Thanks
Barbara
