Today was my appointment. I got there at 1030 and was driving home at 1115. He pulled every upper tooth I had and placed immediate upper denture. Very weird feeling. Zero pain but I need to eat. I tried some yogurt which was not fun. Then I had some broccoli cheddar soup with big chunks of veggies in it. Any idea when I can have some real food? I know everyone is different but it would be nice to have a goal. So far so good just feels like a giant chunk of plastic in there. P.s. they look awesome

I ate spaghetti bolagnese day 4 with mash potato. I was still sore so couldnt chew so had small amounts and just swallowed. I was just too hungry to eat just yoghurt or icecream

I can't swallow right with mine (uppers and lowers) in so I haven't tried to eat with them.  It's been a month since extractions.  I eat mushy stuff with them out and that works for me.  Big chunks of veggies right away seems impossible.  If you can swallow OK, pudding, yogurt, applesauce, mashed potatoes etc. is probably the best way to go for now.  Ensure drink is good for taking way hunger and giving you nutrients also.

Your dentures look GREAT!  You do need to clean your gums periodically, so you don't get infection.  Don't be scared - you're doing wonderfully.  :-D

Brandon they really do look great. Be watching out for days 3 to 5 those seem like the worst for almost every1. But because that's when swelling is usually at it's worst. I know I looked like a Dr Seuss character days 3 to 5. Lol. But after that other easier and easier. I'm about almost 8 months from getting all top teeth pulled and immediate denture. I get my perm Dec 18. I'm too excited. Lol. This site is AMAZING! Dontknow what I would have done if I hadn't found it. Everyone is so nice and if u have any questions sum 1 here will know the answer. Good luck hope u heal great and keep posting
