Well, yesterday was the biggest day in my life. I had my last 12 teeth pulled and was given my brand new dentures (full upper and lower). I absolutely love my new smile! From reading all the other posts from newbies on here, it sounds like I'm dealing slowly with the same issues as everyone else. You know---my tongue feels like someone else moved in without his knowledge, my gums are still sore, I had to go back today for some minor adjustment, all the different problems. BUT, I love my new smile!
I can't wait until the healing is done in a few weeks so I can try some sort of adhesive to "grip" my dentures and stop some of the rocking I get. It's also hard for me to tell how much of the sore mouth is from fit or from extractions. I think I have an awesome dentist and he is really helpfull and concerned about what I need done. Time will tell, but I think I'll love this change in my life.
Did I tell you.....I LOVE MY NEW SMILE!!!!
