9 days following 28 extractions and double tori removal. I am very comfortable in my temporaries now. The bottoms don’t fit as well as they should do to the tori removal but I’ll be going in for a soft liner soon. I switched to powder and LOVE IT! I am stumbling a little with words ending in ‘s’ but aside from that I sound normal again. This picture was 3 days post op!

I've gotten to the point in rather a short time where I am so thankful and blessed to have dentures. I work with a lady right now, who had to get extractions whose going without any dentures whatsoever. The fact remains that some just don't even have the funds to purchase dentures so we are blessed to have what we have. Positivity is sought after, negativity can get the hell out of this forum!

I had a horrible first 6 months I actually felt like I was gonna lose it and spoke of suicide for the first time in my life, and I have been thru some serious shit, this group saved me, and thank goodness I have the sense not to pay attention to the 1 or 2 bad apples that seem to be here because they think misery loves company. This journey is very hard under normal circumstances, never mind some tradgedy that brought you to this point in life, then to have someone judge or doubt or nay say you is just SAD and un called for and that person should be removed from the group, We need to help each other and give advice or lend an ear and build each other up even if we never meet anyone here in person that doesnt mean we shouldnt respect each other and treat each other the way we want to be treated. If anyone needs to vent look me up if anyone needs help with some denture products to hold you over for a bit hit me up I have plenty to share. On that note, GOODNITE PEEPS SWEET DREAMS REST WELL GOOD LUCK ON YOUR DENTURE JOURNEY TOMORROW, IM GOING TO TRY CHICKEN PARM FROM OLIVE GARDEN WITH SALAD AND BREADSTICKS FOR THE FIRST TIME. FOR MOTHERS DAY, WISH ME LOTS OF LUCK THANKS FOR LISTENING <3

Mind above, I am with you all the way, sorry your wife got sick my love passed so young from cancer he left me broken and sad but life does go on, I hate negative people some people get out of bed that way, even if someone was an addict and that was the reason WHO CARES they are human too we are all in the same boat, smile and do your best, thats all you can do, I feel like negsative people just like to stir the pot then sit back and watch it unfold , so I do my best not to get sucked in and to keep negative away from me and my home. For me surviving for me everyday is a physical and mental struggle so I dont have what it takes to fight off negative I just ignore, ( plus it makes the negative get madder and its funny lol )

Looks great. The bottom ones kinda suck. I’m 10 days out myself. And I personally like the powder too. Especially with I have stitches.

Yes Ma'am anything new you want to try, save your receipt and if you dont like it put it back in the box take it back and tell them it didnt work for you, I asked the sales clerk , being on a fixed income I cant afford to buy things that dont work or arent useful to me, Never before when I worked and had a steady income would I return anything, I would give it away or toss it, I dont have that luxury anymore every penny really matters for my household now

I love the powder for my uppers, but I find it alone doesnt hold my bottoms I need an adhesive and the powder for the bottom, contact fixodent they sent me a coupon for the value of a full size bottle of powder, so it was FREE

You are so generous! That is such a kind offer. Also, brilliant use of Tupperware! I have been wasting so much powder. I also love to save money where I can do I will be implementing the Tupperware “catch” in the morning

Mind above, you can horseshoe your denture yourself, sorry I missed your comment last nite, do you have a dremel tool, the key is to get a towel, a water bottle your toothbrush, your denture, your dremel, start off very slowly in the middle of the denture and take a tiny bit at a time, while rinsing and dusting it off and trying it back in your mouth as you go, a little bit off feels huge, so you may not need as much off as I did. You can use the picture of my denture for a reference. I did have to use the dremel to make the edge of the denture where the u shape is now thinner , again doing a little at a time. If you need more pictures to use for a reference I would be happy to send some to your phone if that makes it easier for you, I would have no issue actually doing it for you, but if by some odd chance it broke I would feel HORRIBLE and I wouldnt be able to replace it so taking on that responsibility is not really something I wanna do sorry but I know you understand what I mean. If you really want me to though I will be extra extra careful and NO CHARGE LOL

Hi Patricia thanks and I understand- However I have an extra top that I purchased off of ebay for a little nothing so its not my main denture, because I knew i wanted to try the horse shoe but I didn't want to get it done to my main temporary tops especially if it made matters worse so if they broke it wouldn't be a problem since I purchased it from ebay HAHA. I don't have or know where to get a dremel but if you will do it please email me where to mail it..... You can literally buy almost anything on ebay HAHA LOL

Do it dont wait for your permanents you will be so happy, go slow take a little at a time grab a towel your tooth brush a water bottle and your dremel or electric nail tool I used both, and file a little bit brush off the dust rinse it try it in see how it feels take off more repeat until you get the result that feels good but take a little ,you can take more off in a day or two after you wear them, I also keep a do it yourself soft liner in my upper because I dont like the feel of the hard plastic, but I only used about half of the mixture because I didnt want it to be to thick

I’m finally eating!! I’ve lost 17 lbs. I feel like I’m dying lol. As soon as my bottom partial is fixed, and my stitches are out (I had some wisdom teeth and molars that really really wanted to stay in), I can use some adhesive. I can’t use anything on the gum line just yet. So I’m using powder on the upper only. And only on the pallet. Hold decent enough, but will be soooo much better after a reline. My swelling has went down a lot in 10 days.

Check out my denture, I couldnt do it the conventional way no matter how hard I tried, some of the palate had to go, and I read a post on this forum about someone removing it so I did ruined my first upper, but I learned and now Im thrilled

This is the perfect amount off, I now have 2 sets and a third coming in a few months and Im doing the same to the third set. Im having the second and third set made the same exact tooth color size shape,evergthing so if an uppe or lower breaks I have a spare of either to put together, then I have the other set as my spare and to rotate.
