Three weeks in, I feel that I look like the makeup artist from the planet of the apes got a hold of me. I can eat, but it hurts like heck. Really no more than just before I had this done. It's funny, I take these things out and push against my gums with my fingers and absolutely no pain. But put in my teeth and try to eat a twinkie and it even hurts. ( maybe a bit of a stretch, but you all know what I mean) For the uppers I am using the sea bond adhesive strips ( sorry fixodent) seem to be giving a bit more cushion than just food seal alone. But, creating alot more sores on the front of my upper gumline. Adjustments at the dentist are a pain in the ***. It seems that every time they fix one problem the fix creates two more problems. just me or are there others out there with this problem. I don't actually know anyone with dentures. everyone in my family has perfect teeth. My wife has perfect teeth. Heck, my dog even has perfect teeth. I got a steak the other night an eight ounce fillet mignon. took two bites. Hurt quite a bit, but would have been worth the pain if it would have tasted the way that I thought it should, but of course it didn't. If this is what I have got to look forward to.... sigh, I'm tired of hearing myself complain. I even complain in my dreams for christ sakes. Ah, well can't do anything about it now. Get busy living or get busy dying, I say.
