I hate this upper denture and feels awkard in my mouth. I have put my dating life on hold and afraid I may now never find a partner. I may never have the confidence I once had and I have always been a pretty confident person. All I want to do is stay in my room and cry all day.
Please tell me this will get better.
It will get better. Isolating yourself wont help your health, so you need to try getting used to the dentures while sitting on your porch, in the back yard or in the front yard. Try wearing them while your practicing you alphabet in the mirror. Try different things, so you can know your life is better with your upper dentures.
I now know I can look good on TV with my dentures. It has been so different, but a major improvement for me. It took me a bit, but I am so loving having all of my teeth looking so good now.
IT WILL AND DOES GET BETTER!!!! Please do what you can to let others seeing you with your teeth tell you HOW GREAT YOU LOOK!!! That really helped me when I was in doubt about how my upper plate made me look.
You WILL survive this, just be patient and give your gums time to heal, In no time, approx. 9 mos,., you'll be in your permanent dentures, which are much thinner and you'll be glad you did this..I know I am... Keep updating on your progress, we're here to help YOU thru this ''JOURNEY''...
I'm a single woman and fear my kissing day's are over.
I am less traumatized now. But sure do need a support group to help with this life changing event. I'm praying the day will come when these teeth don't feel so foreign and so large and I can eat again.
I feel I'm having to use too much glue and it's making me sick. I refuse dinner invitations and rarely eat in front of anyone, including my immediate family.
I hope you're doing better ladies. My anxiety and depression have come back and it's a battle for sure. I'm faking it with high hopes of making it.
I have my permanents and recently saw on a YouTube that this lady uses Secure on the top and then uses Ezo on the bottom. I tried that and will do it again when I will be gone all day. However, since getting my permanents in have been determined to not need anything. So far I've been able to eat steak and all the fixings twice now.
Just don't stop trying!
The most important thing is to get the dentist to keep correcting and adjusting or to realign the dentures until it works. they always want to take advantage of us and claim more costs or its a mental problem. Don't give up and fight to get to a place where the teeth fit and start to feel right ! I've been thru hell and back fro two years, and countless doctors and useless work . you have to make them make it right , or these doctors will work you for more money.
I don't see how I will ever eat with these things. There is no feeling or taste. I tried a few times and it is tortuous for me. I'm just eating liquid slop without the dentures in, losing weight and I'm already underweight. Sigh.
