Our expert says:
Thank you for your kind query regarding your extremely challenging situation. The first step would be a diagnosis of why your “skin is peeling off in your mouth”. The best person to help us here could possibly be a periodontist, as these clinicians also specialize in Oral Medicine conditions. Please contact the South African Dental Association for contact details for a periodontist for you. Once the cause has been established, I suggest that you talk with your Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgeon, as well as a prosthodontist to plan the way forward. Hopefully implants can be used to replace your missing teeth and as such restore your lost function, given your inability to adjust to dentures.
