    I’ve recently had my two bottom front teeth extracted and am about to get a second impression for the permanent partial dentures.

    Only the bottom teeth had an impression. I thought the upper teeth would be required to have an impression too.

    My biggest concern, however, is that I wanted chrome cobalt dentures. Now the dentist is telling me that because my teeth aren’t aligned in a straight row, the chrome cobalt denture can’t be fitted around the teeth exactly. Is this true?

    I’ll lose space behind my teeth which will inevitably affect my speech. Would I be better off considering acrylic dentures?

    Hello Fiona!

    If you like to take my advise, I think you should consider second impression from another dentist. But if you have unaligned teeth you should consider using acrylic dentures.
