  • Updated 5 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.

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.

Barb,

While I am not Beth a dentist that works directly with a lab and is known for high standards is Smiles by Jiveh in Royal Palm Beach. I've driven two hours north and south of this area and it's been a miss, he actually was one of the only dentists to work with a lab and surgeon - directly. They look natural and my lowers made by another dentist didn't fit. They looked horrible to boot, he personally fixed the semi perminent ones (I couldn't wear them for three years) and worked with me on my healing uppers. The moment the healing ones don't fit he brings me in asap and remolds it or relines it. They have the 3d scanning system since I couldn't stand impressions and it was a great fit off the bat. I really do recommend him because I've seen him on the phone with the surgeon and the lab personally when he doesn't like something or something is bothering me that shouldn't be. I don't mean to push myself or opinions in here but I've been through the ringer of dentists in South Florida. He is the only one who treated me as a person and not a defect that should be happy with the twisted metal that looks like it belonged in the movie "IT". Good luck, I am sure there are others out there but he is it for me.

To every one
Has any one seen this on U tube and what do you think of it
I think you click on it??? or just look it up on UTube

Actually  anyone considering dentures should just look up on the internet dentures vs over dentures or Dentures secured by  Implants before they make any decisions

There is a large  Dental company in New York and Westchester and counties   that charges very little for implants and is excellent
They only do dental   procedures that involve implants and they do thousands of them a year
They use dental implant specalists
I do not know their  price for an over denture (or clip on )  secured by the implants

Right now they have a sale on an implant plus cap plus abutment for only $1.300 and their usual price is $1,700  
Their name is Contemporary Dental
