Hello all. I’m getting fitted for dentures sept 20. Then the extractions. The more I read about all the horror stories, the more terrified I get. Does anyone have some encouraging words please?
Hi Susan, I think , even after all of the hassle with getting them to fit, lol, it was totally worth it!! I love my smile now. There are a lot of helpful tips on here from bad to good. You will learn as you go. Don't be afraid to ask other denture wearers if you have any problems in the future. Its a time thing for sure. Good Luck!!
I think everyone's experiences with dentures are different. I can say i got fitted or got impressions done, then a wax bite and then had all my extractions done and i have never had to have a soft or hard reline yet. I got mine done four months ago and couldn't be happier. I wouldnt take it back for anything. I dont even have to have adhesives they fit so well. I can eat anything i want, love my smile and most of all i have no pain. I cant say your experience will be like mine but i believe if you have a quality dentist you trust everything should work out. My dentist has their lab right in the office. Its hard to be positive and try to have a optimistic outlook on it when you hear the horror stories, especially if you dont have any other options besides dentures. There was nothing more i could do for my teeth. And with no dental insurance and a mom to three kids, financially there were no other options for me. Implants cost so much! I wish you the best and lots of good luck and vibes your way. Just wear them as much as possible even when you want to cry and rip them out. I think that helped me a lot. I rarely take them out. Try to stay positive and everything will work out.
