Hello, On the 18th June 07 i had 14 teeth removed and the dentures in place at the same time (Under Sedation) They have left 3 teeth in at the bottom for a more secure fit as the bottom dentures is suppose to be harder to get use to?
I wasnt in much pain on the first day even after local had worn off i had loaded my system with painkillers, but i then got a dry socket which was very painful, no sleep couldnt eat, to many painkillers, manage to get back to the dentist and was prescribed antibiotics which did ease the pain.
Also the bottom denture didnt fit correctly it was sitting tilted and needed to be re shaped around my bottom tooth on the left side,
I got to see my dentist this wed 27th june, and she has made them fit much much better, the problem ive got now is i need them to be glued in (Fixedent) or i cant keep them in and eating is a nightmare
Please can anyone give me tips on how to get use to eating, i lived on milkshakes and weetabix for the first 8 days.
Since the dentures have been fitted correctly i have started to try more soild foods but i dont like it, it feels very strange like im going to pull the teeth out, it is still quite tender in my mouth, got big big ulcers, they are going but its slow, food just doesnt feel right in my mouth
