Hey guys and gals. I haven’t been on much lately. Pretty busy. But the great news is, I have nothing new to say. My reline on 8/2 has been great. I stopped using fixodent powder and went to super poligrip with no zinc. No more roof of the mouth issues. Can’t complain. Hope you all are doing well too!

Hi Charlie, I haven't been on too much either. Glad things are well with you. I just went to the dentist today for a measurement to get my wax try-in in September. Final stage is getting close.
Hope everyone is good out there in denture world...!!

Not really. I still have some marks on my cheeks, but I really think it’s just from them rubbing my teeth. No sensitivity at all. No more bumps on my palate either. I do have a question though. When this reline becomes loose, what’s your opinion on a snug up using DenSureFit? Looks pretty easy to do. Just to get me by through November.

And as for now a little powder is all I need for 16 hours. I guess my shrinking has slowed down a little as I get closer to the 4 month mark.

You paid for those Relines so use them up if you need to MR! :) Yes I know what it is but I don't really know people that do diy relines. How many relines do you have left?

Once you hit 4 mth book one and then book one for your 5th mth and you're good to go.

I have only had 2 relines (the first they did messed up and they had to redo). I was told unlimited soft relines until I get my perms. But it’s like pulling teeth (lol) to get them to actually do one.

Hey hey Charlie Brown!! Looking good my dude!! I haven’t been on much lately either. Hit the 2 month mark on the 17th but otherwise nothing new to report. Still waiting for my first reline (scheduled for 9/17) but that fun little combo adhesive trick you taught me has been working great so I know I can make it till then. No issues with food or anything but I do have a couple of sores that I’m getting taken care of tomorrow, nothing major. Not denture related but I took a new job and I start Monday! Super excited for it! Glad to hear you’re doing well!! Keep on smiling my friend!!

I'm doing amazingly well. The surgery was 5 hrs conscious sedation. I'm doing overdentures with implants 2 hr after a pain killer induced nap I awoke with no pain and have not needed anything I was fortunate my gut was right when it came to the dentist am learning to talk again but I tell my customers every time I whistle the price goes down
