Got somethin' interesting, disgusting, baffling, or just showing the daily grind? Here's the place.

Wanted to stop showing in the 'worst denture repair' when it really wasn't, but just the normal headache level.

Looks good, if it were me I would send a note to the dentist that a reline might help keep it from breaking again quickly. When I do that I usually get it back for a reline in a couple of weeks.

Some offices are open to suggestions, and I do make them. Some are getting aware enough I no longer need to say anything, they've been taught.

The second one had a Dentarum stainless metal mesh added, not the wire cloth, the good stuff. It's now a backup RPD.

Here's one for ya, I had to send it back to ask for a reline impression and open the bite, since she wanted the holes fixed haha
We got one in today with holes just like those. Dr says to fill the holes and wipe out as much of the opposing denture as needed. No reline, no new denture, will just keep wiping out the lower teeth as they wear holes in the upper. GRRR!!!!

My fav is the ones when the pt has no lower posts and that want the 'dent' filled in palatal to the max anterirors *and* want me to 'do something' to make it stop loosing suction.

What, like make a lower RPD? No! Do something to this one. uhhhh.
