A person in a relationship with you that is not empathetic to your situation is not a very caring person at least that is how I WOULD take that as well, don't let one person who is not understanding what your going through ruin the possibility of a more healthy relationship down the road. Are you being overly sensitive was she just teasing you or is she really doing this in a mean form,...only you know the delivery of her barbs and if you really feel she is being derogatory maybe its time to reconsider your relationship.
Consider getting implants
The Least expensive implant system are over dentures
Price them out at a Dental college or go to Costa Rica
or Mexico where they are very inexpensive
Then again you can always get rid of your girl friend which is another alternative
Let us know what you deceide to do/
If you deciede on the implants You will enjoy this over denture so it is a Quality of life issue in addition to a comfort thing
Good post but I wold like to say I have my implants with more then 14 or 16? implants for more then 10 years. The uppers are in 12 years or longer and I never had one problem with them. No additionnal up keep or charges or linning chargers or redo charges or adhesive charges
They have been a complete joy and I have forgotten how painful it was paying for them.
I'm so sorry to hear that. She really didn't deserve you! I understand that hurts a lot but you deserve someone so much better. Please be proud of yourself and whatever you've been through that even brought you to the point to have to get dentures. She should look up to you and be proud of you. You got through something so challenging as we all here know. Now that is what a real man does! And she didn't pass the test!
Everyone wants you to feel better
This whole thing with your girlfriend might have had more to do with long time issues in your relationship rather then the teeth.
"The thing is i need to get some self esteem and this issue wouldn't have bothered me so much"
I think you figured it out with that statement by yourself.
You are unhappy with having to wear a denture at such a young age. It is sort of a mourning process?
Your girl friends torturing you abut it just high lighted all your
own feelings about it
I imagine now without her there you will begin to sort it out and figure out what you want to do next
Good luck and let us know how you are
