Im having trouble getting used to my dentures not so much my top but my bottoms are bothering me really bad . and the dentist said yesterday it would be my worse day besides the day getting pulled but today felt the same as yesterday everytime i wake up and put them back in .. Why is that? I know my gums are swallon but isnt it suppose to get better each day.? Im only 24 going through this someone please help me? I feel alone.
I'm a 30 year old guy due to health problems I had to have all my teeth extracted at once I had dentures put in the same day. This was 5 1/2 months ago. For the first 3 months I drank stuff like ensure and muscle milk for the protein that helps your mouth heal a lot quicker. The first week I stayed on a liquid diet mashed potatoes, apple sauce ect. At first It was painful yes but it's worth it in the long run an I have learned how to deal with them better later on. Remember those should be temporary and the new ones in 6 to 8 months will feel worlds apart in comfort. But for now i would wait a week for the major swelling to go down and ask for tissue conditioner as its softer material then a reline and they are able to do it multiple times with out adding a bunch of bulk to the dentures. And fyi the bottoms will not fit well until you get your permanent teeth. I hope that help and I'm sure you are still a pretty woman.
Thank you alvin that helps alot.. I am drink ensure good to know it helps your mouth heal more... I finally put them in today around like 1pm and just took them out now ..apperciate everything u told me.. And im suppose to get a soft liner put in wednesday so hopefully i can hold it out until then ... Thank you very much
I have only two of my own teeth left and before I received uppers and lowers, I ate soft ,mushie and fattening foods(donuts,cakes,mash this ,mash that,etc. When I got the teeth not only was I tickle but had to remind myself that I could now chew carrots,peanuts,celery,baked chicken,etc. So don't worry about how you look,realize that the teeth keeps your face from sagging and that you are able to eat nutritionally.
