If u can take a few days off from work and keep rinsing.  It takes a long time to heal and when u stitches come out u feel better.

Try to keep them in as much as possible especially the first few weeks. I know it's hell - it was for me & yes you will feel a little better once stitches come out. Eating for me was next to impossible other than very soft foods. I had no problem with speech but only had upper done. Good luck it does get better but slowly.

Hi Shae. I just had all uppers pulled and immediate put in 2 weeks ago. Keep rinsing with salt water and take denture out at night. I had stitches removed this past Wednesday and a soft re line done and i feel so so much better. Hang in there it gets better every day
