I went through a period of regret because it felt like it was never going to get better and I was so hungry but couldn't eat much of anything. You're relearning to chew and eat so that does take some time. But eventually you will get to the point you can chew better, talk better and the teeth will sit better in your mouth once swelling starts to subside.
At 3 months I was able to eat mostly anything I wanted. While everyone's personal situation is different it does get better.
Kimmy you are really important on this site
You are important because you are getting the snap on dentures
and you are important because you went to Mexico
W need to follow your journey
Snap on's are the real next step for denture wearers so we need to know how much you paid and where you went and how you picked this dentist out?
If you break the costs down that would be a big help. How much were the extractions and then how much are the implants and the full final snap on's???
How many implants are you getting for the snap on??
Are they full implants or are they mini implants??
Can you go to any denture lab here and have them help you for some adjustments???
Can you call the dentist in Mexico?
Have the implants been put in Yet??
Do not stop writing to us because we need all your imput
You should be fine. When are you returning???
Take Care Kimmy!
At 4 months I was eating everything I wanted even potatoe chips, burgers etc. I'm almost a year with full dentures and I get an occasional sore spot but most days I dont even feel them in my mouth or forget about them.
I've been in to see a dentist many times since December 28th, when all of my teeth were extracted and I got my temp dentures. The best thing you can ask a dentist with an in-house denture service is for a soft liner. They put some gel in your dentures to help with the fit and with the comfort of your dentures against your gums. Without soft liners, I never would have made it to today where I finally have my permanent teeth - and they look beautiful!
Hang in there, all of you. It's a journey and this group was sometimes the only way I would get up the courage in the first couple days to take my dentures out despite the excruciating pain.
So, yeah, hang in there. You can make it and it does get better!! Just for funsies, here's a pick of my brand new perm dentures!! Amazing!
