Told my granny that and she is determinded that the ones from the NHS are cheaper quality and thicker. Is this right??? :thinking: :?

yes on thw whole - The NHS labs will make them from the cheapest material which is reinforced acrylic , which is strong , but ultimatly dense - but this can vary from lab to lab - if she can afford them , and to eliminate a not so great pair of dentures , private is the best if she can afford it - is it a full denture or does she have some teeth ?
#10
It might be best if she can ask her friends who have had dentures made that are similar to what she needs where they have had it done and by which dentist and then seek out the dentures from that practice and dentist .

aye she is old and got plenty money....... yeah she needs the lot, she looks like a wee ducky when her falsers r out hahaha :lol: :w00t:

if i have the money i would go private - dentures are a means of improving your sense of self and helps with eating , so she'll want the best she can afford - I strongly recommend asking others who have full/full dentures and asking where they have had it done and how much , then ring the practice for an initial consultation - go with your gran as she might not be able to take in all the info and it always help to have someone there !

She could try using denture fixative , has she tried that ?
Also at the dentist they can reline the loose dentures as so to improve the fit so it's more close fitting - again cheaper than a new full set .
Your nan will probally be used to these set of dentures , so a new pair might be diffucult for her to adjust to , so try as much as possible to adjust the dentures that she has as it would be cheaper and more comfy for her than having a brand new set .
If the dentures are really slack / damaged / really worn then it would be best to go a new set - but again it might be best to 'copy' the existing denture shape and form ( they can do this in the labs) and just to adjust the inside of the denture to make them more close fitting - this would produce a denture that would be better fitting and one she could adjust to much quicker as it's a similar feel to her existing pair plus there would be less visits to the dentist if you copy them .
