Wish me luck. Today is my first day back at work. No one at the office knows what I had done. Let’s hope I don’t talk to oddly. So far, no one has noticed

So far so good. I’m so nervous they will fall out lol. But I believe they are glued in well. They feel good. I’ll be much more confident after a reline.

Try not to over think it. If they start feeling loose head to the bathroom and clean out the goop, reapply and you're good to go.

That’s right. But I’m a dummy. Didn’t bring anything with me. No biggie. I’ll pick some up at lunch. Can’t eat anything anyway ;)

Lol. I didn't say it. Don't forget to pick that up at lunch. I have to remind my hubby often to do things. You men! :)

She does. After 18 years you’d think she stop trying. She’s a strong lady

Wow that was fast to get back to work. Way to go. If someone asks what’s different about you (if they can’t quite put their finger on it), are you going to tell them?

I would say got a haircut, but I’m bald. So I don’t really know.

Thanks for your kind words, but in all actuality you are the hero! You did it, when you didn't think you could.
Keep up with us, or we would miss you.

Thanks. I am taking baby steps. Appreciate the good times. Right now, I’m enjoying the evening with my wife and son. I’ve even forgotten about dentures from time to time

Yes ma’am. Not going anywhere. I probably have at least 6 more months of griping to do

Got through the first work day. Honestly, this was one of my biggest fears. You know, will is sound funny, will anyone know?
Only one person said I sound a little different. I’ll take it.
It’s tough physically. I had many people say I looked sick. I’m short and slim, so I can tell how much weight I’ve lost. Guess everyone else can too. 160 to 143 lbs as of today. Gotta eat!! I am going to try and wear my partial and eat some chilli tonight. Wish me luck.

I actually do like them. But, you can burn out on almost everything.

Put some turmeric in your chili. It's good for you and an anti-inflammatory and yummy in chili.

Sounds awesome.

Quick question. It feels almost like a wet sand texture under my plate. I haven’t eaten anything, especially not sand. It’s still holding in place well. Not impacting speech. Just feels odd. Maybe normal, but nothing to compare to. It’s really only the back half of them. Not the same closer to my gums. Just weird.

Sorry I fell asleep. It's probably the adhesive if you've been wearing the same application for a long time. I've never really heard of that happening. Haha haven't eaten any sand. It's great that you've had a sense of humor on here. That's a good sign of healing and being positive.

Oh maybe it's because you used a powder this time? We always recommend to put 3 dabs the size of a pea with the paste kind. 1 on the left, right and center. Sometimes if you use too much it's over kill and doesn't work well.

What? Sleep?? What is this “sleep” you speak of? Who will help me along my journey?
I’m not sure what it is. Happens from time to time. Sometimes not long after applied. It may be nothing. It just feels strange. Like I expect it to lose seal and leak out, but when I tried to remove it, it was still holding pretty well.
