I have a pallet on the top and some good teeth on bottom but I hate my pallet when I first had it fitted it felt ok but know it falls out and it’s embarrassing when your eating out and your teeth come loose. So I’ve got to find a way of getting implants or some better fixture, I’m tending to be more conscious when out with friends and always watching what I can eat safely
Any advice would be appreciated.
