I had all my teeth extracted on Thursday. I am happy to have found this group online. I e been reading a lot and most seem to have an immediate denture after the extractions. My dentist was totally against that, and felt it better to heal first. Anyone else ever heard of this? It is obviously hard to go from some teeth to no teeth at all. I've been living on ice cream, chicken broth, and had some mashed potato last night. Other than the pain and emotion of it all, I have to say the worst part for me is the feeling of these stitches in my mouth. You cant mess with them, they are the dissolving ones. It just does not feel right having strings in my mouth.
