After battling gum disease for the past few years with no success, I finally admitted defeat & agreed with my dentist that I should go for a full top denture. I’ve wsiting till the summer hols as I work in a school & thought I could have a good few weeks to try & get used to them. However, upon taking impressions today the dentist was concerned as my palate is more of a V shape than flat or rounded & said this could mean I can’t have a denture fitted! If this is the case whats my alternative? She said she’d refer me to Manchester Dental Hospital - what might they suggest? I am very concerned about this. I’m 54 & work in a primary school so need to be able to work & speak properly!
