So, I go up to try my relined partial. Dentist lookes it over, rinses it off, hands it to me and I pop it in. Fits nicely. Does not appear to have a lot of movement. She has me take it out, says something about, "I'll just relieve it a little on that side," and I hear the burr whirr and make contact while I'm saying, "Maybe we shouldn't...?"
Too late. The relined part had been got at, right where it wiggles. She had me put the partial back in to check the bite and adjusted that a little. And yes, the darned thing now has what feels like excessive movement again.
I lasted until noon with it, then got tired of being unable to speak clearly. (And of being irked about that -- my temper is short enough without help.)
It's way too early to give up on the appliance but I am thinking my dental problems might benefit from a fresh pair of eyes. It's been over twenty years and maybe that's too long.
