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.

I also have gum disease which I'm trying to get under control. I've s...
