Yes, my gums definitely feel sensitive at the front top, just behind the 4 implants......and this is after more than 2 years.Thommy - In the beginning did your gums ever feel sensitive.
Sometimes it burns on my front tooth. Maybe it's too soon to tell.
I'm on an antibiotic this week and just wearing my temporary denture. Not up to all the trauma of getting this thing out.
Adjusted to top temporary denture much easier than this. Don't
know if i'll ever get used to it.
I have a top trimmed "U" shaped implant denture. It has been trimmed down to almost less than 1/4" of acrylic behind the 4 top implant rings.
2 years of daily, constant, almost every moment, annoying "soreness" sensation on the upper front rugae area.
Driving in the car, talking to people, eating, sitting, walking, working......constantly my attention is sucked into how uncomfortable I am with these dentures.
Dentures are horrible.
"Implant supported dentures" are less horrible, but they still are a clumsy piece of plastic.
I resent the periodontist who conned me into these when all I had asked one day was "What about some cosmetic veneers? How much are they?" His office told me that there was NO liability to wearing dentures other than it takes some time to learn how to chew.(I took a clipboard with paper to take notes...this was the ONLY liability I was told.) This periodontist also markets himself as an "implant specialist" and sold me a $22,000 package for these implants. He left a hole in my mouth where he pulled a tooth and refused to fix it. The dentures which he farmed out were nothing like what he had marketed in the beginning from his display model. I was forced to go elsewhere to buy some dentures which did not "pooch out" from under the gumline...and I got the best which cost another 5-8 grand.
There are many liabilities to wearing dentures...from food sticking to teeth ALL the time, to inhibition of taste and glands in the mouth, to speech impediments, to discomfort, to jaw bones slowly disintegrating away, to facial deformation and odd wrinkles over time, to leeching of chemicals into the body, to unhealthy accumulation of food particles under the dentures during working hours after a meal, to continuous maintenance and adjusting.
Many denture wearers can not wait to take them out at the end of the day.
