Sure would just had my uppers done January 8th and trying to adjust to the thought of food not tasting worth a darn not to mention the plastic that now takes the place of the roof of my mouth. What breakthrough are you talking of? Tell us more :)

Hi   Barbara Cornelius

First go back to your dentist and tell him you are  miserable and want a refund
That should get his attention
Tell  him both the tops and bottoms are unwearable
 He  should offer to  make some adjustments and new dentures for you
If he can not make the necessary adjustment then send him a "Demand"
letter asking for a refund
Look up Demand letter to a dentist on the internet and copy it and send it Certified with a Return  Receipt from the post office

You then should   consider a clip on over denture
That's a denture secured by 2 or 3 or 4 implants
There is no pallet  so you taste your food and the denture fits and
done properly will not move around
It is secured by 2 or 3 implants  so it does not  shift

If you have a Dental College  clinic near you that might be the most inexpensive way  to  go
See if you can get a refund from your dentist on your current denture since it is so uncomfortable
Read the internet about over dentures
so become an informed consumer
Keep us informed
Good luck
Barbara

There are free dental clinics in your town
You can go to one of them and see what they suggest

   Can your original dentist  help you or give you  refund because these are not working for you???

sure will , since day one of dentures there has always been the same design, a full palate full coverage of the mouth. I find that after 29 years in the denture making business that this doesn't work with everyone and honestly most dentures are made poorly, to thick to big to long the occlusion is off acrylic is weak I could go on and on however I will stop.. the only way until now a denture made where you could actually feel the roof of your mouth is to spend mega bucks on implants, where a portion of the roof could be removed, implants is not for everyone and they also present their own problems. sometimes they come out, always maintance replacing parts, food getting underneath etc. etc.. NOW there are 20 people wearing a denture that gives them all the mouth freedom that I enjoy and I wear no denture, that is the breakthrough, no more bulky acrylic no gaging no implants as of yet no glue is needed horse shoe design. at a fraction of the cost of implants current price at the dentist is 1200.00. only one dentist is doing this now I hand picked him. I am in the lab and with gods help he let me design the steps needed for this great invention

You can get an upper with no pallet using   4 implants

You can do that at  the least cost at a dental college clinic or going to Mexico or Costa Rica

Implants are like having your own teeth

You know an over Denture with 3 or 4 

implants is much  less  expensive  then a permanent bridge
I am on blood thinners also and all you have to do is stop  taking them as per your Doctor's advice a few days before a procedure

Columbia dental college   posted the following information  on dentures supported by implants:


What Can You Expect From Your Implant-Supported Denture?

Your implant-supported denture will be more stable than a regular denture. You will find it easier to speak and you won't have to worry about the denture becoming loose or falling out of your mouth. You generally will be able to eat foods you could not eat before. However, you will not be able to chew hard or sticky foods because they can damage the denture.

If you have an implant-supported denture in your upper jaw, it can be made to cover less of your palate (roof of your mouth) than a regular denture. That's because the implants are holding it in place instead of the suction created between the full denture and your palate.

Try to return to yur dentist to ask for an adjustment

Does your state/town have a dental  college where you can find out what the price of an over denture or a snap on denture  costs 
That is a denture stabilized by 2 or 3 implants/

These are much less expensive in Mexico or Costa Rico

Please tell me more. I'm in the process of getting implants and a new device that does not cover the pallet. The cost is astronomical for six implants and a new full upper bridge, $35K. I can't afford it but the temporary denture that I have been wearing, before I get the implants doesn't fit very well and I'm in the process of getting a hard re-alignment at the lab. Would love to hear more about the horseshoe design you are talking about.

I'm in the UK and my immediate denture is horse shoe shaped and only covers a small area of my upper palate. I was really worried about having all my plate covered so was so relieved when I saw my new teeth. I've been wearing my dentures constantly since the day I had my extractions (17 days ago) can talk fine now and hate it when I don't have them in. Still can't chew yet but eating is getting easier every day. I love my new smile and new dentures.

Hi  Mary Zimmerman
You can have an upper  denture with no pallett if you opt for 2 or 3 implants to snap  the denture on.
Then it is like having your own teeth
It is a few thousand more but   
you can eat everything and taste everything
If you have a dental college near you they can do it  cheaper

I do not have horseshoe top denture. Don't glue the top in but things don't taste the same and I have problems getting them past the plastic. My teeth look great but I sure would like to eat the things I like with out thinking my taste buds have already gone bad.

You can have a clip   on denture if you opt for 2 or 3 implants to secure the denture.  The   denture will just clip on to the implants
You will not have  a covered pallet and will have a horse shoe denture and  will not need to use glue

Please send me info... had all my top teeth pulled and a new full plate 2 weeks ago fits great but hangs low in the back and I have a clausrrophobic reaction with tongue. My speech is off also but not due to the front of the plate but the low hanging back of the palate.

You sound like you're selling snake oil lol For future reference whoever this is isn't the only person who does this. You can work with any denturist/ dentist who has an actual lab and they can make a palletless denture that can be used without dentures. Most will require you to come in for fittings since it needs to be very accurate so that you can still get the suction without your entire roof covered. Russell Klein also makes a horshshoe upper that I've heard great things about. Tons of videos from happy customers around the world if you go search for them

Of course you can do with out  implants but implants are going to be more comfortable and eating will be better and you will not need a pallett and your jaw bone will do better

Excuse me, stop "asking" your doctors and dentists, they work for you, they are paid by you, they don't get your money if they refuse to do what you want done. I don't understand unless you are very young. Usually a younger woman hasn't learned to stand up for herself. Just tell them what you want.

Hi  Tiffanie Davenport
So what you are saying is that the right denturist can make any one's upper denture
comfortable???
People  do  seem to have less trouble with their upper dentures.  I think we have to have more people weigh in on uppers with and without a covered pallet.

Every persons dentures should be comfortable. Doesn't matter if its with or without a pallet. If it's not you need to go where they were made for you to have them do adjustments

I'm sorry to disappoint but the only "Complete" Upper Denture you can have without a palate is an Implant Retained Denture with a minimum of 3 implants. Partial Dentures can be designed with some of the palate exposed but for a Full Denture to have suction the palate needs to be covered. Folks, please don't believe everything you read and go and try it and ruin your denture.

That's not entirely true. Dependent on where you are suction dentures can alleviate the need for a full pallet. A valve is placed directly in the denture so that it expresses the air once it's put onto the gums and the wearer swallows to rid it of any additional air that may not have gone away when initially putting them in your mouth. This gives an airtight fit and has also been proven to slow down or even eliminate the shrinking of the gums. While doing so it also allows the muscles in your mouth and tongue to adapt to the proper way of working to keep the dentures where they need to be. There have been cases where after three months patients have been able to completely remove the pallet and still get the suction needed to keep them in without jepordizing the function and support of the denture. Also I think people misunderstand what an actual horseshoed denture entails. Its not the same ushape you would get if you were attaching it to implants. It just covers a great deal less of the pallet and once done the denture can be altered so that we dam is placed closer to the teeth still allowing you to keep suction. Not everyone can have this done though. There is also a material similar to a reline that's placed on the denture with hundreds of microscopic suction cups that allow you to retain the denture as well. Again this is not guaranteed to work for everyone. I will say however that the way Dan is going about this leads me to believe it's more of a money grab than it is an actual proceedure. A professional wouldn't conduct himself in this manner and wouldn't refuse to say what it is he can do in an open forum. He seems to be trying to keep a great deal of secrecy which I'm assuming is because he doesn't want there to be record of what he's actually doing when shit hits the fan and people realize they're being swindled

Hi Kalinna,
I agree with you after doing a google search on 'Daniel Prewitt' I found a reference to at least 3 or 4 different people with this name but different dates of birth and states of residence but who all had charges of fraud against them.  As a retired doctor, I've seen many of these scams come and go and I do think highly of those who expose them.  I think Dan needs to either 'put up or shut up' as the old saying goes. I don't see any degree's behind his name so what is his knowledge base, where is his information from? Personally, I wouldn't bother contacting him.

I am grateful I found this forum as I have been going through three kinds of hades with my new dentures.  My dentist says I have the smallest dental bone ridge he has seen in over 30 years of practice.  My new upper is almost flat but I can keep it in with adhesive, getting it out is like pulling teeth but it looks so good (way better than my other dentures ever did) so I can live with that.  My lower has at least some ridge but so far NOTHING will hold it in.  I have consulted with the dentist who also does dental implants but has told me there is simply not enough bone there to support implants due to the way I lost the teeth on my lower left jaw, my ex-husband punched me in the face causing the loss of all the teeth on that side as well as a hairline mandibular fracture.  So I don't know what to do at this point.  I was thinking maybe it is time to consult a prosthodontist since they are more trained in the fitting of dentures than cosmetic dentists.  I think I am more afraid of another big disappointment like the last one.  I may be jumping the gun, I've only had them for 2 weeks, however, I had hoped for at least SOME improvement in the way the lower fits, if anything it's worse than the first time I wore it.

Thanks for the ear and, please, just ignore this 'Dan' as I have more than a little suspicion he is not who or what he claims he is.  See your dentist or a good prosthodontist for treatment by a professional for the best results.  It is not a good idea from the MEDICAL standpoint to make corrections to your own denture like cutting out the upper plate and then holding the whole mess in with adhesives.  I've heard of this and seen it a couple of times in my elderly patients who have developed severe cases of TMJ from malalignment. 

Be Well,
Margie Sacc

Hi Marge
Where do you live (in what state)
I am sorry you are not more comfortable  If it was me I would consult with a top implantologist/peridontist  and get his opinion about securing your lower  denture with implants  
Especially for your bottom denture

==================================
So what you are saying
6 THOUGHTS ON “PALATELESS DENTURE: FACTORS FOR OPTIMAL OUTCOMES
September 19, 2013 at 12:36:57
Walter Mick DDS says:
  1. Yes, yes, no, & no.
  2. REPLY


  3. September 19, 2013 at 12:37:58Carlos Boudet, DDS DICOI says:It would be unrealistic to expect all those things from a palate-less denture that only rests on the gums, no matter if the material is rigid or flexible.
    For a prosthesis (denture) to be really comfortable it needs to feel solid, and a denture that rests on the gums moves because the gums are soft and allow some movement.
    The denture should allow you to bite reasonably normal foods and you cannot do this without natural teeth or implants to support the pressure. A denture can hurt the gums if you use it to bite hard foods and your diet needs to be modified accordingly.
     
    Your best chance for a successful palate-less denture is to put enough regular implants to get support, not only retention for your denture and modify it accordingly.

    October 3, 2013 at 16:59:44
  4. mark says:
  5. THe palate part of an upper denture is for strength and also allows to create a “vacuum” if you will, so that it stays in place

I'm not saying that the best way to go for a roofless upper doesn't involve implants. Just stating that it's possible to do so without them. But you would need to work with whoevers making them fit is everything, and there's more than one way to create suction.

For some of us an extra few thousand is completely out of our reach. It is sad that we can’t afford it, but as my young adult kids say, it is what it is. I am not concerned about my upper, but rather my lower. I can’t get them to fit right no matter how many adjustments I go for. I have just come to terms with it and only wear them for pictures. I guess I am just happy to have all of the rotten teeth gone

Well most every one pays at least  $100 a month for our cellphones or computers or TV
So there are places we can cut back for  year and put that money toward a lower clip on or over denture
It is a matter of what is more important to us   For me it was my teeth

Where there is a will there is a way

It is a quality of life issue to some of us

Hello! I would love info on this. I have an amazing dentist (please do not get me wrong) but it is difficult because my mouth is so small, they had to take the smallest impression plate, fill that in and let me "gum" into it just to make one that would fit my mouth. Even then these dentures cause so much pain that I do not even wish to put them in until right before I am about to eat and it hurts to take out. On top of that, I can not enjoy the food I once enjoyed because they either pop loose or I can no longer taste it. I praise my dentist because he did all my dental work out of the good in his heart but I feel I have become a burden.

I have a small mouth too,never knew till all my teeth were gone, wow.. they used a medium plate for my impressions and I think they're too big. I have I soft silicone reline now and even with the adhesive the tops don't hold. I wish I could just get the palate removed so I can taste my food and drinks again and people understand me when I talk cuz they don't anymore :(

Hi Kayla
You should not  be in pain when you wear dentures so something is wrong
You  need a second opinion
The are dentists that advertise a free consultation perhaps you should visit 2 of those dentists and see what they say about your denture/
If you are near a dental college clinic you should go there for a consultation
Speak to Josie on this site and ask her advise.
Read the internet about your  problem
Let us know about your progress
Good luck

I told my dentist, today, about the palate-less denture. She never heard of it.  She doesn't believe one would stay in. For those of you, who are just learning with new dentures, eventually, you won't notice not being able to taste your food and drink. I've been wearing an upper for over 40 years and I have no problem with tasting my food. This is my 5th or 6th upper.

Either way, she worked on my lower a lot. She even said it was way too thick. It most certainly was. She thinned it down some. I'm going to have to get used to it. At least it doesn't make my gum sore anymore. Nothing needed to be done to my upper denture.

I have eaten with them twice now. I think I can learn to live with these the way they are, but, at least, I know if I have to  have any more adjustments, I can trust her to do it right. She really cares, not like the dentist I went to before.  I was just told to come back in six months to have them relined! You see what I mean, no caring at all.

Hi  Clairetta O'Neal Anderson

Implants are  almost necessary for bottom dentures
You  only need 3  implants

You sleep with the denture in your mouth and it is much more
comfortable then an unsecured denture
You can eat everything with them
They really are more like your own teeth
They are better for your jaw bone

unfortunetley it does cost at least a few thousand
but we buy cars that cost much more then that

Barbara G,  My husband and I live on less than 1400 a month. I did find out I can go to our local dental college, but, even then, implants are way out of our budget.

My husband paid cash outright for our truck when he got his disability back pay. Of course, he didn't get all of that due to the lawyers' fees. But that's another subject.

After paying rent, utilities, food and insurance plus personals and cleaning supplies, there is nothing left at the end of the month. Not everyone can get implants, and to be honest, at  72 years old, I'm not sure I want to go in for surgery.

No. For me, it just isn't feasible.

well you are right  Living on $1,400 a month is difficult
God knows how you do it
Are there any dental societies in your state that can assist you?
If you call the dental association in your state can they suggest anything???
There might be some dentists that donate their services???
Let us not give up!!!
72 is still young
Implants are not surgery and there is almost nothing to it
Any ideas??
