Well y’all it finally happened! Yesterday I received my very first reline! When I got to the dentist they had initially planned to do a hard reline but after some discussion between the dentist, tech and myself, we ultimately decided on the soft reline.... but the tech forgot to switch the tubes of material so I ended up with a hard liner anyway!!! Honestly, I wasn’t too worried about it, the hard reline is doing the job, my chompers are in TIGHT! Even have a bit of suction in the lower which is great. But they ended up giving me a super discount, which was unexpected.... however, even the discounted price was more than I anticipated. They explained that because my insurance wouldn’t cover the temporaries and I paid out of pocket for them, the insurance company won’t cover the relines because, as far as they’re concerned, my dentures don’t exist. The out of pocket price should have been $450 a piece! But they only charged me $150 a piece. While I wasn’t anticipating paying $300 I sure did appreciate not having to pay $900.

Yesterday was also exactly 3 months since e-day and I can’t believe I made it this long without a reline. I thought I was managing just fine, but oh my word are they a thousand times more comfortable now. Went out to eat with some girlfriends tonight so I decided to put in a little (and I mean tiny) bit of powder adhesive just to be safe, and I think that may have been a mistake. It really wasn’t necessary, they don’t move around on me, not even the lowers. Now with adhesive in they are so snug I’m not sure they’re ever coming out lol

Other than that, I don’t really have anything new to report. Still just counting down the days until I can start designing my perms. I hope all is well with all of you fine dentures wearing folks out there!
