I had moved my teeth during the initial impression?
Hello. Have had full removal of top teeth set on Tuesday last week. I had 4 posts sunk into my top jaw. The previous week I had upper and lower impressions taken for fitting of temp bridge.
My problem came Friday afternoon when the fitting of the bridge was done. The bridge was too narrow for my mouth and would NOT fit over my remaining bottom teeth. They were twisted to the one side of my nose, protruding front wards (huge overbite that I never had before) the wrong shape front teeth.
After speaking to the care team on Friday evening they arranged for the bridge to be removed on Saturday morning at the surgery. I had a phone call from the care team yesterday evening telling me that it was probably my fault that the bridge didn't fit correctly as I had moved my teeth during the initial impression. They now require me to drive to the lab - some 45 miles from my home on Monday morning to get the bridge remeasured and remade.
I have been fighting to save my teeth from gum disease for the last 27 years and thought this was going to be the answer to my prayers. At the cost of some £8,250. Is it possible that that will happen, I have had 8-10 different impressions taken over the last 20 years or so and have never had a problem like this. They are doing their utmost to put it right, but I feel as if I'm being made the scapegoat for someone else's mistake.
The teeth did not even look like mine, my husband thought they were joke ones fitted over the top - no joke.
A little advise needed here before the battle commences tomorrow. Thank you
