Went to the dentist today to demand that they trim my palate. Surprise - when I brought it up, my lovely dentist said, "Of course we can do that". So, now that problem is much better and the space where there was a huge gap between my denture and the back of my bottom gum has been fixed too. But, the best part - we made an appointment for June 10th to start the process for permanents!!!! All because I said my goal was to have perms by my birthday in July. Psyched!
