Details
sounds like you have a lawsuit of malpractice on your hands there. they should be removing the bone spurs, and roots, as well as wisdom teeth for no charge, as that is what you paid for.. all your teeth extracted and new dentures. as being in the dental profession myself. i know that root tips, and bone spurs will eventually become infected and if not taken care of promptly, can cause death. your teeth are not just part of your mouth, they are directly attached to your sinuses ears as well as brain. if the infection is not taken care of right away, via antibodies, before the root tips or bone spurs are removed when infected, it can lead to some major problems with your body, as the infection will spread fast. my advise is to seek a malpractice atty, and get the matter resolved asap. you will thank me in the long run.. wishing you nothing but the best, and good luck \ R

"Bone spurs will become infected?" Since when? Uncomfortable under dentures, but not infected.Don't know many dentists that would routinely extract every deep bony impaction before fabricating dentures. Depends on the surgical risk.You sure you are a dentist, dude?

been a pvt dental lab and inhouse lab tech for almost 40 yrs now. and yes it is uncomfortable and can get infected..

what are you some newbie to the business that you don't know much yet. worked in many inhouse labs and seen alot of problems over the years,, both in house and when i am running own lab, as i go to the dental office to make sure everything is ok. also i learned the hard way. from the ground up..

never went to a tech school where you learn by the book. and yes have a current CDT to show that i know what im doing and have had one for 30+ years, so when you get a little experience than you let me know.. nothing worse than an amateur fresh out of school or still working model bench thinking they know it all. so go back to studying and work with a few dr's and then you will know what im talking about...

as i have seen it all.

and i do both c&b as well as full and partial dentures, from start to finish.. you must work for a denture mill or you would know these things..

Ha Ha! As a prosthodontist, I've made patient dentures (sometimes doing the lab work myself) for 40 years and you think I am a "newbie."Got all the respect in the world for you lab techs, but you have never taken a knife to tissue like I have.Preparing a ridge for full dentures (as opposed to overdentures, which are superior) is no walk in the park.

However, it is sometimes not prudent to remove ALL deeply impacted wisdom teeth, nor palatally impacted canines for that matter.Aspen never thinks of any of this, however. Their goal is to yank the teeth out and get the dentures in as quickly and as cheaply as possible.

UPPER/LOWER PREMIUM PACKAGE

When I went to the Mesquite location on 7/13/18 I was told I need have pain medicine after 17 extractions that would be done the following Monday. I assumed they read my paperwork with the list of my non narcotic medicine I take regularly. NOPE! THEY DID NOT! I left with dentures in my mouth. Not even offered guaze. Bleeding everywhere. MY husband tells me they don't want to give me anything for pain!! No one discussed anything with me!! My husband sat me in our vehicle,ran back in there and was able to get me a little bit of Tylenol 3. If someone would have talked to me or read about my medical history, they would have realized that's like giving me a TIC-TAC. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL AND SADISTIC! I'm still bleeding and in pain. Telling everyone I know not to go here!

An experienced retired dentist friend of mine decided he wanted to get out of the house and work a couple of days a week, so decided to try working at Affordable Dentures.That didn't last long. He was shocked that the dental ASSISTANTS tried to tell him which teeth to extract on patients!

Assistants with no dental school at all were treatment planning patients for extractions and dentures!

Can you believe that?Don't even think of going to shyster outfits like this. Your health is too important.

that is just how they are, a denture mill. as their budget denture they advertise cost less than 2$ to make per arch in teeth and other supplies.

it's all about production and money. they have such a turn over rate of employee's, it is just unreal. would not recommend this place to anyone. just like i would never recommend going to stanton or one hour lens's.

i may pay more, but i go to a real dentist, and a real optometrist, but well worth it in the long run..

feel sorry for people who have to rely on these places for their teeth, as once they have you in the door it is nothing but upsell.. they have there monthly quota they have to meet, or go without.

So you had "four bad teeth" and their solution was extract them all? Incredible.

It is a rare patient that I cannot save 1 tooth in each quadrant. Extracting all teeth is virtually always a bad idea.No decent dentist wants to work in these high-volume denture clinics. It is the most demeaning job in existance for a licensed dentist. An alcoholic is the best they could do.Sorry pal, it is a lot of work to make a good denture.

ONE well made denture in my office in Dallas costs nearly $2000. Cheap= ***

I was rushed verbally let it be known my dentures did not suit me but still pushed out the door! They do not work with you to give you what you are paying for cash! All teeth are made very small and you still don't look like you have any teeth at all!! As far as eating goes I lost weight because I can still only eat mushy food! The staff is rude, and you better pack a lunch because you will be there all day long and possibly has to come back the next day!

I have been so disappointed with my dentures that I have even took two looking at used ones on eBay After giving Affordable Dentures in Rocky Gap Virginia almost $1,500.

Sounds like a plan- buy someone else's used dentures on E-Bay. Then fill them up with epoxy resin from the hardware store and put them in your mouth.

Makes a great reline! Don't give those greedy dentist your money!

My son got an upper denture 6 months ago. Since then, he has had 3 teeth pop off. Actually, one of them popped off twice. He is going back next week to get it fixed again. He is quite upset. He works closely with the public. He takes great care not to bite down on...

Teeth popping out of dentures should be a rare event. It happens when wax is not cleaned off teeth properly when the wax denture is being converted to hardened heat-cured acrylic.

If there is any wax left, the acrylic won't bond to the denture teeth.Cheap places cannot afford to do the lab work right. You get what you pay for.

I told them my gums were staying sore. They kept telling me that it would get better. I picked up my final teeth and told them they were a little loose the girl left came back and they felt a little better, she said I would just have to get use to them. I was told that I would not have any more gum shrinkage after a year WRONG! Dr Blair pulled my teeth leaving roots as my gums have shrunk more the roots are showing like I am growing new teeth which we all know I am not. He also found a wisdom tooth which he left saying it should not be a problem since it was sideways and would never come in. My teeth are rubbing not only the wisdom tooth but the roots he left when he broke my teeth off. Wonder if I am the only person who is toothless that has a toothache? I am currently trying to heal a sore where I have to put so much goo in my mouth to hold my teeth in it has caused tearing of the skin. Called them they want another $1000 or more to split the gums and remove all the roots and the wisdom tooth and put in a bone graft to make my gums smooth so the teeth would fit like they should . Man I wish I had all the money back I paid them over $2000 so I could to somewhere else and have their mess repaired

Bone and gums shrink throughout your life. They shrink more slowly after the first year, but they still shrink.

Some patients have to have relines every couple of years.Do it right and remove all the roots and bone spurs the first time, then you won't have to return for more surgery.Few patients are happy they remove all their teeth and have dentures. Apparently you aren't one of the happy ones.

I hate the plastic clinking. I love the look of my teeth.

People tell me I have a beautiful smile. I do not think after you get your final set they should give your 30 days. I think it needs to be at least 6 months without them wanting to charge to reline them.

The dentist was unprofessional to leave the roots of my teeth. I have spoken to another dentist and they said it would be at least $1200 to remove the roots and make me another set of teeth

So your husband went to a corporate denture mill trying to save money on dentures. Now he paid for dentures so uncomfortable he cannot wear them. Guess he did not save so much money after all, did he?Just so you know, quality upper and lower dentures made with all the necessary steps will cost between $3,000 and $4000.

They are still in business because foolish people believe TV ads by health professionals.You know that it is illegal for anyone except a license dentist to take a final impression for a denture or partial, don't you?Having an outfit like Affordable Dentures try to put implants in your mouth would be as stupid as going to an African witch doctor for open heart surgery.

Take your money elsewhere!!!

Same kind of ordeal and workers in the OKC office. Get this: I began sobbing a bit after my top teeth were removed (while the dentist and asst talked about their kids' class rings rather than comfort me!) and the dentist lambasted me for sobbing, said she knew she hadn't hurt me and that crying would keep the gas from working properly! My God, talk about no compassion!! I've requested getting my dentures after only having my teeth removed at the end of February and was told they don't recommend it and I think, won't warranty the fit (or lack thereof I would say). I chose the economy plus set due to the price of 695 being affordable enough that if I wanted to upgrade a couple of years from now, I could afford to. I was charged 1095 and it didn't dawn on me until about a month later and now that I asked two weeks ago why, was told that's for the visits involved in their "necessary" 9 month long process!! Liars, scammers, no compassion. This place needs a class action lawsuit brought against it!!

All your life, dentists told you to take care of your teeth, didn't they? Because dentists know that the average denture patient is not really that happy after all their teeth are removed.But you knew better, didn't you?

You did not listen, and had all your teeth extracted, even canine roots that could be saved.

And you did it not at a competent dentist's office, but a corporate denture mill.Now you are in a pickle.Politicians are being bought off by swindlers that own these corporate dental clinics, so don't expect any help from them. You went to a corporate clinic instead of an independent dentist, and you have to live with the consequences.
