I am nearly 80 yrs old. I have had chrome dentures for two months, and have had a lot of problems with them. The latest is that the clasps have caused my own teeth to loosen and I have had infection and an extraction as a result. My other teeth are wearing thin due to the movement of the clasps when eating. What happens when all the 'anchor' teeth are worn out and the dentures have nothing to clasp on to?

Hello, I have a few questions. I've been having bridges for many years (I am 37 and I got my first bridge when I was 16) and unfortunately they always become loose on one side, therefore either new bridge needs to be made or my remaining teeth underneath start decaying. The dentist suggested chrome-cobalt partial dentures. As seen on the picture it will be for my upper jaw covering approx. 8 teeth. Is that a good suggestion fo...

Dear Sirs, Historically, I've always had a metal denture. I've just been to my dentist regarding a new denture and he tells me that metal dentures are no longer available on the NHS. I find this difficult to believe especially as the NHS website says that dentures are made of acrylic, metal or a combination of the two. Can you please help? Yours faithfully, Peter Jackson.

I had all but 3 top teeth removed in 2013 and had a temporary denture in place for 18 months. The denture was made by a CDT who worked alongside my dental clinic. He since then has no affiliation with the clinic.When I required a permanent denture I went to the CDT direct (without seeing my dentist) who took impressions and said that one of the remaining teeth was in such a bad condition that he thought it may fall out or requ...

I have had most of my top teeth removed and replaced with a transitional denture. Since having the initial work done I have lost more teeth and have only 2 upper teeth remaining (top left rear, which has filling) and 1 tooth on the left side, 3rd one in from the centre teeth). My NHS acrylic dentures have split twice and I have had to have 3 teeth repaired, so am not very happy. On a visit to a CDT for repair work he suggested...

I have a full top set of dentures. I need a new set because they're worn down, don't fit now because my gums have shrunk, and have been mended many times. I went to see a dentist yesterday, 1st Dec. and she said she would get a new set fitted for me by Christmas. I took my old teeth with me and she asked me to put them in, then wiggled them and she could see they didn't fit. I then had my impressions done, well one. I had the ...

I am a 51 year old woman who unfortunately lost all my upper teeth, and all but 6 of my lower ones, by the age of 46. This was partly caused by poor dental work when I was young, and compounded by my being seriously ill.  I suffered with cancer when I was 43.  The chemo caused me to be very sick and I developed infections under the teeth I had left at that time. I am still relatively young. I would love to have natur...
