First let me say that I'm almost teary eyed that I finally found people that understand what this entails. Next let me make perfectly clear - I HATE THEM! It's been about 3 months since the "procedure" and I've accepted this is now my life but doesn't make me like it any better. I had 10 teeth pulled on the upper on the Monday and was without till the Friday. Went through the pain and sores and everything ya'all did too - I had "final" fitting about a week ago. My dentist has been wonderful and I've met him at the office so many times at 7am for adjustments but nothing seems to make them feel better or fit better. I've lost 30 lbs and 2 clothes sizes in this time frame ( silver lining?) but it has not been worth it. I'm so sick of soft food I could scream - I still gag with all the glue goop - I'm tryng to sleep with them but gums really hurt in the mornings and the bottom few teeth gouge the top gums if I sleep without them.
I'm going to read every posting on here - maybe someone has "something" that will work. I actually found the web site looking for sample stuff, thinking maybe it is the glue that is the problem. It holds pretty good in the am but by mid afternoon they have dropped down.
I could go on and on - but you all have been through this so you know what I'm going through. Any and all advise would be very greatly appreciated
