Confused Dentures and RSD/Fibromyalgia

Due to having RSD and Fibromyalgia and taking opiate and other pain medications for 22 years, my beautiful teeth crumbled, rotted and broke off. I spent a lot of $ trying to save them but had to have a full mouth extraction October 30, 2018 to get rid of the infection in my mouth.
I've healed fairly well though I have had many bone spurs clipped.
The dentist that did the extractions took impressions and had a set of dentures made before the extractions. I was in too much pain to wear them for months. Now trying them in my mouth I realize they're too big for my mouth and gums, they still hurt and don't look right. I have another bone spur popping out too.
I'm concerned about and won't have any implants done because of my RSD and Fibromyalgia.

A dentist in New York (I live in the SW United States and can't afford to travel to New York), who works with rsd patients suggested I get a full mouth CT scan to see what's happening with my bone structure then have my dentures redone according to where my mouth is now. The trick is finding a good dentist who is willing to learn about rsd and Fibromyalgia and knows how to help craft good looking dentures that fit. Believe me, I've searched for years in my area for a dentist like this. It seems to be more about the money for most dental offices even to the point of putting in toxic mercury fillings, root canals, cheap material crowns and now, implants which all negatively affect our health.

If you live in the Mesa/Phoenix Arizona area and know of a good caring dentist please let me know.
If you have had dentures made please tell me how you adapted to them.

Hi SWKat,

I would suggest that you look at the IAOMT.org website for a dentist near you. The dentists that belong to that organization are generally well informed about the connection between oral health and the whole body.

You would need to have a new set of dentures made as there has been a lot of changes in the structure of your mouth and jaw since you had your teeth removed.

Hope this information is helpful to you.

My dentist, in SC, is the president of the dental association in our state. He is not only well informed, but is on top of so many things that perhaps others may not need to be on top of, due to them not having the position my dentist has. I have seen several dentists in my lifetime, and my current dentist is heads above the rest. Perhaps find out who holds this title in your state. I know it's an unusual way to go about something, but my dentist is highly informed, due to his office, as well as his profession, and it makes a huge difference. FWIW, I also have CRPS, widespread, and he works carefully....actually, he sometimes holds his breath when working on me, because he knows.....and it is rough to go to the dentist with CRPS.....every tooth screams bloody murder the second he touches them.....so we both work together to do what needs to be done, but he is careful not to be invasive with me.
Oh, and like you, I am getting fitted for partials, all four quadrants, because my RSD has ravaged my teeth, too.....like yours.
