Hi my name is Diane I just had my surgery done on May 30th and I was absolutely terrified town have it done and it was just as bad as I thought it was going to be especially since they didn't give me nearly enough meds the only thing they did say we was the magic mouthwash and I learned about that by reading your text and I just wanted to say thank you to the community now for something a little bit more personal one thing that I've been wondering about I'm not in a relationship right now and I'm a little freaked out that no one will want to be in a relationship with live with me when they find out I have dentures and I was wondering whether they can tell you have Dentures when you kiss somebody I know that's a very personal question but it is a valid one that I'd like to have answered because it has been a worry and a fear of mine the fear of them falling out or moving in the process anyway if anybody's brave enough to tell me the truth I I would really appreciate knowing the truth

So you have dentures, big deal! If that is that big of a deal to someone, they weren't worth having anyway.

Completely understandable.  I think most guys won't care.  Honestly.  No one will know but him, you'll have a perfect smile, and there are some (a-hem) sexual benefits as well.  Think about how you'd feel if the guy had fake teeth, or a prosthetic limb...

That being said, you might come across some people who are going to have issues with it.  If they do, they do.  You'll have to be okay with it and move on.  Besides, if they can't deal with that, they wouldn't be long-term potential anyway.  

I have asked on other anonymous sites if guys would date someone with false teeth.  I am married, but I was having emotional issues.  My husband acted like it was no big deal.  That he was just happy I was healthy, but for some reason I wasn't buying it.  Well it was an overwhelming 'yes, who cares about fake teeth' answer with the very few who didn't like it.

You'll be ok.  And kissing isn't even different.  Take care of you, first.  <3

I guess that's really the problem it's me I'm the one with the problem I just never thought I'd be a person who had to have dentures and I guess it bothers me and because it bothers me I'm expecting it to bother other people men especially because men want their women perfect

Girl I know what u mean. I was super worried about my husband liking me the same. And when it came right down to it he was fine with it. It was me that it was bothering. But now I am so proud of my smile.

Diane, I believe in you.  I would not worry about dentures.  As the others said, would you judge others?   I don't believe so.   You got this and your picture is pretty.

I remember my first couple weeks after. I was so happy about my new smile but I was still so self conscience about wearing denture. I would ask everyone in my family can u tell can u tell? I was so worried every1 would automatically know. But as time has went on I realized unless u already knew me b4 or I told u no1 can tell. Dentures r a big change but after more than 3 months I've gotten over most of the worry about ppl knowing. I'm REALLY happy with my teeth now when b4 i would never smile fully from embarrassment of my teeth. And on a more important note my health is for the better and I FEEL healthier and more confident. Give it time Diane and u will too.
