Customer Question

I have a full upper denture and a partial lower denture.My natural lower front teeth are much higher than my back teeth on my denture.As a result of this my front teeth on the upper denture are wearing away at an alarming rate - 3rd denture in 4 years as they become so worn.I feel that if my bottom teeth were much of a muchness, as my own teeth were, this would not happen but my dentist says the bite is fine.

it sounds like that dentist just wants to keep making upper dentures for you year after year.
you should get another opinion from another dentist
you most likely need to get your lower partial dentures remade as well.
are you willing to see a new dentist?
