I'm a little nervous to start this process. Im 28 years old and feel I am too young for dentures but its the dentist opinion on this one and with a wedding in 2 months I would like to smile with my family. The more I look around these boards I keep seeing people under 35 with them which is putting me at ease....KIND OF


Any advice. All would help. I am an EMT an constantly talking and might have a week max to take off. do you think that is too long or can I go back earlier


Thank you
Joe

A big question to adk ur denist is do u have enouhht jaw bone for ur plate to sit on.if not don't mess around get them screwed in right away.I am seven weeks out and finding there is nothing that will hold my plate in and I can't chew food.. I s till have sores in my mouth.I had two adjustments in the first week that was good. I just started the process to get implants so the can screw my teeth in.

yes I am able to pick my teeth color for both sets. today I'm going in for my extractions and i get my immediate denture as well. I picked on around the shade of my lowers maybe a little brighter. For my permanent set I will get my natural lowers whitened and get my upper denture nice and bright for the money I'm paying
