I am 35. I always had bad teeth. Went to a dentist and he recommended pulling 15 teeth leaving only 5 on the bottom. Getting a full top denture and a partial bottom. I went in on Oct.27 and had this done. Went in last Friday and had them rebased. I am really having serious problems. Beyond the fact that they hurt and are soreand just still trying to get used to them.
To me and my family they don't look right.The gum area sticks out past the teeth and when they are in it looks like I'm wearing a mouth guard with teeth on the bottom. Before when I smiled all you would see is teeth now all you see is gum and barely the top of the teeth on the front and both sides. I try to eat soup and soft stuff and can't chew,the bites don't match up even if I try to use the adhesive. I feel like a freak. I spent all my money trying to get this done, close to $8000, now I will have no money for Christmas for my kids. I am crying every day and wish I had not taken everyones word that this was the thing to do, that life for me was going to be so much better.
I am really struggling and need help... Please is anyone had this problem or is going thru this too?
