If you go to www.guinnessworldrecords.com and look up human body, body parts, youngest person to wear dentures you will see this is now updated to show our son, Daniel! The previous record holder for a full set of dentures was exactly one year older than him.

Congratulations

How's he managing. Wesley finally got his bottom set, after having a top set for a couple of years, only a couple of weeks ago. He is finding it hard really doesn't like the bottom set. I think he has managed for so long without them he doesn't see the point in having something uncomfortable and strange in his mouth. Wesley will be 7yrs in january and I think he should have had them a long time ago.

Ben is struggling a bit. He doesn't always wear them as both sets is a bit of a mouthfull! His bottom set are more easier to wear than the top set and he takes them out to eat. I think it just a matter of getting used to them

Daniel is 7 too. When he first got his he used to take both sets out to eat and had to re-learn eating again with them in. He still can't eat very crunchy things and meat has to be shredded. He'll never be able to eat raw carrot sticks for example and some crisps are too spiky!

I had a new set fitted last March, and they've been the worst set so far! I've only JUST got them adjusted correctly and pain-free!!! pale

Wesley still won't wear his bottom set of teeth. I think he should have been given them with his top set. They have just adjusted his top set to allow his two adult teeth to grow through.

Daniel never had any problems with his fitting.

I'm not sure if it's just easier if they don't have any of their own teeth to start with.

But I must say his dentist and technician at the hospital in Edinburgh are fantastic. They simply couldn't imagine making dentures that didn't fit properly! We are very lucky to have them.
