Thank you! My way of thinking mostly consists of, if you act like you are uncomfortable with it, than you will never be comfortable. Granted, I smile more & I prefer myself with my dentures in. It is now a part of you, your jewelry, better for YOU. My 5 year old daughter after I had my extraction said, "Mommy, you don't have any teeth." I explained to her everything that happened, with tears running down my face. She smiled, put her hand on my cheek and said, "Don't cry mommy, I think you're pretty without your teeth." I think that is when I stopped caring what I looked like without them in. God bless you. And I wish you the best on your journey!
