Today I ate a sandwich for the first time since getting dentures on 2/22.  It went pretty well, until the bottom started floating around.  Note to self:  make sure to reapply adhesive before eating.

I got my dentures, top only, on February 14th and I still cannot bite into a sandwich.

I didn't even try to bite it, and it was soft pimento cheese.  I cut it up in little pieces.  One of my first tries at chewing.  The oddest part of eating is the lack of feel in my "teeth".

I will also be going back to the dentist this week.  The bite on one side is off - I can feel upper and lower meet on the right side, but there seems to be a gap on the left.  I have waited to see if it resolved after swelling, etc. But, it hasn't.
