Seeing my dentist soon as he is back in his office from shoulder replacement surgery. I am getting prepared he's gonna tell me that my only option is getting dentures cause a dentist on just answer website said that the few remaining teeth didn't look like they could be restored cause of them looking infected. I know I can't go by what he says but I am just preparing myself.
The thought of upper dentures sounds good but my problem is, I don't have patience and I get stressed too easily. I am so afraid that I will never get used to them. I've read how people have to learn to eat and talk again, sore gums, they gag people, and all these cons just make me so nervous thinking about it.
What I try to process is how they feel, I can't imagine feeling something thick or something like a foreign object in my mouth. And something else, while eating, the denture covers your natural gums and the roof of your mouth. What is that like when eating? How can you even feel how to eat food? Or if you get food at the roof of the plate, I try to figure out how you will be able to taste anything. Remember this is only an upper denture. I would greatly appreciate anyone who only has an upper denture and what it is really like and how quickly it takes to get adjusted and what to do to make it easier.
