Finally put my dentures after a dentist visit.

I want to tell you a little about me. Back in 2011, I was 22 years old when I had all of teeth removed. It was due to starches in pasta and every day foods, but not from junk food because I didn't eat that much of it. I didn't want to brush my teeth. To this day, I regret not picking up a tooth brush and brushing my teeth. I have to live with the choice I have made now. And I owe up to it every single day. I do use my experience to teach others to take care of their teeth, so they don't end up without teeth like me. I guess I can use my experience to do positive for others, even if it something like losing teeth. I got denture work right after my gums had healed up. Yet, I refused to put them in my mouth because I was getting use to eating without them.

So years go by until I finally said I wanted to be able to eat properly. My top denture fit perfectly, but my bottom one did not fit at all. Since my sister had an appointment ,(where I go as well), I asked her to make me one. I went Thursday to see the dentist, who found out why my bottom dentures were not fitting properly and worked immediately to solve my problem. I wore them all day Thursday and Friday before I got sick. I want to tell you that I have been able to align my teeth properly. I have a lisp, but that does not stop me from talking. I want to be able to smile again with a full set of teeth and not be embarrassed to eat in public. No one has to know if I have dentist if I don't want to tell anyone. If anyone is hesitation to try them, just give it a chance. I am will do the same.
