june 17, 2010 i have full upper (immediate denture, pulled 6 front upper teeth and partial lower dentures( back molars has been gone like 5 yrs ago and decided to have the lower partial together with the immediate upper denture). i hated my lower that i didn't wear them while my front upper gums were swollen. second month, i tried to wear my lower and everytime i bite down, i feel pain in my lower gums. i went back to my dentist and she put a white cream on my lower dentures and asked me to wear them and bit down really hard. then she took it out and check the spot that doesnt have the white cream anymore. she said this means that that part has to be grinded. and so she did. now i can wear my lower denture with fixodent and can talk without pain in my gums. im still in the process of learning how to talk with it and to be honest, i take the lower denture out when i eat. my next goal is to try to eat with my lower denture. ill post it here when im succesful. what bothers me now is on my second month, i feel like gagging (did you experience that?). but im trying to tell myself that it's all in the mind. i'll see my dentist on september 18 (my third month) for reline. i hope the reline will fix the gagging. ill post here to any updates on my situation.
