A week ago I went to AspenDental to see about new dentures. You can read about the first visit via the blog link below.
So today, a week later I went to see what they would look like, try the wax ones, make adjustments, so that at my next visit I would get my new dentures.
I only waited around 15 minutes, which was good. I had a young lady bring the dentures, gave me a mirror, and put them in. The first thing I noticed was that the teeth were smaller than mine, and I have worn my down over the past 15 years. When I was told to bite down, the upper ones, came over the lower ones. My teeth have always been straight, and close completely when I bite.
I told the girl that the bite was wrong, so she got a technician in. I was told that is how they should be. I said that for the past 50 years, that’s how my dentures have been made, and I can’t change the way I bite.
After testing my bite several times, she had me bite down, with more of that gunk, and said that they would have to adjust them. The first lady came back, and said about making another appointed after they had been adjusted. I said, what about the size of the teeth. I need them bigger, because I grind my teeth at night. She noted it, so I hope it will be done.
She then said that the next available appointment was Thursday week. This is a place that states:
I can see at this rate it could be a month before I get them, and on the first visit they told me that it could take 10 days to 2 weeks, as everything is done there.
Not too happy, but I have to have them done correctly, as I want to get as many years of wear as I can from them.
