  • Updated 2 months ago
It's going on 5 months that I had my teeth pulled and immediate dentures. I still can't eat crap. I live on pasta, scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes. I can chew anything. I've tried but I think the teeth are crap. In about 5 weeks I go in to get my permanent ones. And they are suppose to be the top of the line. I just hope and pray that I will be able to eat again. I've lost over 30 lbs so far. It is so depressing. Went to county fairs and couldn't eat. My birthday is coming up in October. Sure would be nice to go out for a nice dinner with my man. Just really regretting all this. I wish I would of had a second opinion. I wonder if there was something that could have been done besides pulling them all. Grrr. Very frustrated and depressed.

Hello Everyone. 

I just found and joined the forum. Thank  you all  for sharing your experiences.  I'm probably going to need a bit of moral support and have a few questions in the near future.

my dentist has made 2 sets of horrible temporary dentures Ive gone 5 months with no teeth and she stitched my gums so tight my tongue is hurting really bad, her and her assistant dont listen and the assitant is mean. I cancelled my appt yesterday I told them I have a cold and today I went to another dentist for help, I read great reviews about him and the whole office, they have a lab right there so I am switching to him and praying for a great result. Ive had enough horrible treatent. I'm out $1000 so far and probably have to borrow another $1000 to get the upgraded denture I want , But I refuse to let the other dentist and her nasty assistant near me, even if it cost me money. After feeling like I was mentally going to lose it, to having a little faith that I might have tetth again someday soon, Maybe I will sleep tonite.

Hi Barbara, 

Yes, Here it is a little over a year ago that all this happened. I reached out to the credit card company; they investigated and cleared the debt to me reverting it all to the dentist. I had also filed with my insurance co. after their investigation, he was ordered to pay back all the money they had sent, PLUS all the money he had charge me for services he should have never charged me. I also filed a formal complaint with The Arizona Board of Dental Examiners, since he is not board certified I could not file with them. I still have no teeth and have just now found a DDS that I feel I can go forward with. Wish me luck.

I am so sad  that  this occurred/
At least you were made whole as far as the money went and that is only because you handled everything so quickly and so correctly.  
Of course you deserve  the  best
Good luck
Barbara

Barbara,

With your encouragement. It was you who told me not to settle for the poor treatment I received. Thank you so much for that advise. While the Credit Card has been taken care of and the Dentist was ordered to pay it all back ... I still have yet to see a penny.  Thank you again for all your input.

My extractions were done on 05/09/19 and the temporary upper and lower dentures were put in.  I had to go back first thing the next morning because the frontal gum and teeth were protruding so badly that I couldn't drink anything.  The tech was able to shave the gum area down enough to allow me to drink, I can still barely close my lips over the overbite that I now have that I never had before.  If they rest my upper and lower plates on a counter, everything aligns perfectly.  Once they are in my mouth, however, that goes to hell, I have the overbite and nothing aligns properly.  Any attempt to 'chew' anything causes extreme pain, especially from the lower plate.  I have been back for 3 adjustments already and with all of them, no sooner do I get home than I have to take it out because it won't even stay in my mouth when I'm talking.  There is a bulge on one side that constantly makes it look like I have a small wad of chewing tobacco tucked in there but they just say that my gum protrudes out further on that side.  I call BS, there is an actual 'shelf' of denture standing out off of my gum pushing my face out of shape and making my entire mouth look deformed.  Back Wednesday morning, I think they owe me a set of temporary dentures that don't give me an overbite that I never had before and don't make my face look deformed.

I had to demand (3 times) an itemized statement of what was charged to the Care Credit account before it was provided to me.  He, the office manager, didn't want to give it to me.  He also advised that if they feel that they owe someone a refund, they never reverse the credit charges, they only cut a check.  This is getting more and more fun!

Hi Beth
It sounds   like this  good news for you
You should ask you insurance company and Care credit to tell this dentist to give you an full  refund  now 
  
Care Credit should be able to reverse   the charge and your insurance   company  should be able to do something for you

I am so pleased that you refuse to be a victim
How are dare  they gang up on you /   
That man's size and demenor is intimidating

You have got to get away from These people.
Is this a chain dental  place???

They have at least 3 to 4 dentists that are each in the office 1-2 days a week, it seems in an overlapping schedule. I think there may be a few offices that are connected and they rotate around, or something like that, but I'm not sure. The office manager mentioned that they have been in business for more than 10 yrs. I'm wondering how many people they have stolen how much money from over those 10 years!

Care Credit has put the entire originally charged amount into a disputed status.  Delta Dental has a grievance filed by me to investigate them as well.  Based on some other things that were said to me, in response to my 'reminding' them that there are laws around prosthetics and some things are illegal, it is viable to say that I was threatened, intimidated and bullied.  That behavior has been reported as well.  A HUGE 'kicker' is my passing the info on to Care Credit that they are overcharging Care Credit accounts and then, 'if they feel that the person is due a refund', they only cut a check to issue the refund, they never reverse the credit account charges.  Anti-money laundering rules do not allow that to happen, goods purchased by credit card must be refunded to the credit card, no cash refunds or 3rd party transfers are allowed.
