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.

I have uppers and lowers too. Swallowing was hard at first as i gagged so took lowers out which helped with swallowing.im 6 months out now and just had a permanent reline done and eating is so much easier except bottoms would pop up but a tiny bit of adhesive right at the backs has helped immensly.

So you weren't chewing anything?  I don't see how one can chew when there isn't anything to chew against?

You can chew without dentures in i done it for 5 months .you just need to put chunkier bits in .alot of foods were out like beans ,steak etc as they are impossible to chew with just gums. But sausages chicken ,hot chips are manageable you do need to use your tongue alot though to help move it around.

I can't bring my gums together because I have 5 implants sticking up in my lower gums.  I'm working with tongue and roof of mouth.

Hi Again Brandon. I'm glad everything went so well for you. I cannot believe you have no pain. Is that because you are taking the pain meds? And big chucks of veggies ??? I'm on day 9 and I still can't do anything more than soft foods. What's wrong with this picture haha
I think you should show us the new you.?

Feeling pretty ok today. Haven't taken them out yet. Not sure if I want to. I'm thinking the longer I leave them in the better off I will be. Bought a decent supply of protein shakes and soups. Tried eating crackers...epic fail.

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
