My husband & I went to Mexico.. I already had an upper.. for many years. I had 6 lower teeth left with a bridge. The dentist was Wonderful she pulled the 6 lower teeth. The next morning I was in having the new top and bottom dentures put in. Like someone else said.. the pain is less than having tooth aches, infections, rootcanals.
I am adjusting to the bottom denture, I have been eating soft food..Chicken, noodles, eggs, even some crackers and chips. It takes a little practice, take smaller bites.. chew well, learn to use your tongue.
Your tongue an muscles in your mouth will try to push out the denture (especially the bottom one). so try to relax your jaw, practice saying the alphabet . Your tongue will shrink some.. since it had more space before you had the dentures in. It takes pactience and practice, but now I can smile again .:)
