The clinic i went to didn't give me any information about caring for the softliner in my immediate denture. Do i leave it in water overnight or not. Conflicting info. Dont keep your dentures in overnight, dont let your dentures dry out,,dont soak the softliner in water. ..what is accurate information? Thx
Hey Leslie, The 1st day you get the soft liner you should keep the denture in your mouth over night. The liner is still soft so you want to give it a chance to harden a bit. After the 1st night it's always important to take your dentures out over night and yes have them soak in water. This allows you to maintain the gums you have left for as long as you can. It lets your gums breathe...almost like taking your socks off. Sorry for the example. Just in case you don't know you also shouldn't clean your dentures with toothpaste. It has an abrasive in it that can ruin them through time. Liquid hand soap or dish soap works great and just a good rinse. One more tip...through some time your soft liner may feel hard, you can run your denture under luke warm water before placing in your mouth to help soften it a bit. I hope I answered everything on your post and this helps. :)
I actually removed the first liner myself 2 days after I got it. It peeled right out. It was so awful !!! So thick it and low, it was the first time i gagged with the denture. There wasn't room for my tongue! The teeth were cutting into my bottom lip. I have buffed and adjusted it a bit myself and it made it much more comfortable. I went to school for cosmetology and have done nails for years working with acrylics. I buff it to a beautiful shine and im good to go. Its amazing just how little needs taken off to relieve pressure. I did a far better job adjusting it than that assistant who did the awful liner. She left spots sharp and rough. She has no business working with dentures. I wore it all day yesterday no problems. Thanks for the info. Definitely in water at night!
U know Leslie I get my nails done a lot and I also have filed on my top denture. I filed on the palate and it made a huge difference. I made it a little thinner and I have great suction without the adhesives. I wear secure adhesive so I can eat and what not. But yea I don't recommended anyone start filing away unless u know what ur doing. These are my temps so I don't wanna ruin them because I won't get my permanents for another 3 months or so
Hi Gina2, I got your second email and clicked on the view reply and it's not bringing me there so maybe that is on one of the accounts that Tanya, one of the moderators said she disabled for me. When I went to my profile it tells me profile information and then that's it all I can do was show what my profile says but I can go to the bottom and then it's just blank so I don't know if is different if you're on a computer versus the phone I have only been using my phone for this stuff. But I want to say thank you for trying to help me I do appreciate it .
Sorry. Answering from my cell right now and not the greatest. I'll try and get back to you later from my computer. Gagging usually occurs from the PPS (Post Palatal Seal) it's the back of your denture closest to your throat from left to right of your gums. Have you had any adjustments done there?btw you shouldn't be having that issue at this point. I'll do my best to guide you with suggestions.
I have gone in numerous times I always complain he says it's bc I need 2 get use 2 them even if u look at them one side of denture is longer then other and they really don't stay in he said it's bc it's not my final pair I have 2 go back in in may and pay more money 4 a final lining and I can't use the fixodent bc of the gagging
I'm sorry to hear that Carol. Things are different from the states and canada I noticed from this forum. We typically don't offer 2 sets so maybe they're just telling you that's what you have to deal with for now. Typically, you should never need to use adhesive on an upper so let's say your permanent one. You should be able to go for adjustments. And the adjustments will help in the mean time while you wait for your permanent. Hopefully you've had a soft liner at this point to hepf with the fit " TEMPORARILY" until you get your permanent. Hope this helps. If not don't hesitate to ask....:)
So this is what they gave me after. Appointment was at 1145 they changed it to 130 due to being behind schedule. Get there at 130 and they say leave them here come back at 430. Ugh. I love this place but the receptionist is just rude and no sympathy. I told her I've been without bottom denture for almost a week and u keep doing this to me. It's not my fault ur behind schedule and I can't keep coming in when u like.
Teeth are crooked and some are long and some r short. Didn't fit right so they kept doing adjustments and I said maybe another reline would help because they feel very ugly and she's like ur gonna feel like that and I'm like I had no problems before. Bite was off and they feel ok but they don't fit snug like they used to.
Josie, I was wondering how I know if my dentures were really made right? On my uppers the palate comes down way towards the teeth. Not much back of the teeth are showing. So due to this I feel I will never be able to talk right. It's been 2 1/2 weeks since I had 21 teeth extracted and got my immediates. I've been in twice plus the day after check up for adjustments. I've told them the problem I have with that. I just feel they aren't made right and they aren't going to tell me if they are. I still can't eat. Got to use a straw. Tried to eat some applesauce with a spoon but they both like come loose and I can't do it. I'm getting so frustrated. I need to get a job but can't go for interviews when I can't talk. I'm getting really depressed. I just feel something isn't right with them. Also besides sore spots ive also have been having pain in my gums. It almost feels like a tooth ache. When I yawn or move my mouth a certain way I have pain. Also it hurts at times in the back roof of my mouth like the palate is digging in. I have an appointment tomorrow. I guess I got to be firmer and that with them. I just wish I knew for sure if they are suppose to be like this as they tell me. Just wish I had something to compare too. I am suppose to have comfilytes immediate dentures and then in 6 months get the permanent comfilytes. I wonder if I really got comfilytes or did I get cheap immediate. If they are made wrong do they make you another set of you just got to deal with these until I get my permanent ones in October. I'm hungry! I want to be able to eat and TALK! At this point I feel I will never eat or talk normal again. So depressed. I just want to cry. I'm regretting what I've dond
Hi Marcia, sorry for the late response. It's been crazy at the office. It's hard to tell when you're not here in person and can't see the denture. When you get immediates usually the don't seem to be your denture as your gums will be receding quite a bit for the 1st 6 mths. I've heard that before that they don't leave much in the back area of the teeth. Usually that makes it difficult to chew. If you're having that problem ask them to adjust and trim some of the pink acrylic so it can improve your chewing. It's common when any one gets immediates to go for adjustments often. Don't give up. You're normal and not crazy. Your gums will be shrinking really fast and then slower at the final stage. If you can buy some adhesive that will help keep the dentures in place. I'm not sure about the products for dentures in the USA. I work in a Clinic in ON, Canada so for the comfilytes maybe someone on this forum can help you. If the palate is digging in it may be too deep. Ask them to adjust you PPS (Post Palatal Seal). Once you've healed in 6 mths things will get better. Hang in there! How did your appt go? Hope this helps.
Hey guys. How have u all been. It's been a while since I've posted. Having a problem. I'm 5 months in and my lower left side hurts so bad. Like if I have a toothache. Went to the dentist and took X-rays and nothing is there. She did some adjustments and all seemed fine but it has come back. Like I can't eat and when I press on it, it hurts. Feels like a real bad toothache. I don't know what else to do. I'm going June 6 to get my peanents but I want to get this fixed.
