I had 24 teeth taken out a little over 2 months ago, I have partials on top and bottom. I have 2 teeth on the top and 2 on the bottom. This is awful! I hate it! Please tell me it gets better. I'm 29 and have always had extremely weak teeth, my dentist recommended dentures because I was sinking so much money into my real teeth only for them to go bad anyway. I have no doubt that he was correct in recommending this route. I can't get used to the dentures, I hate the way they feel, I hate the adhesive and trying to clean the adhesive out of my mouth at the end of the day (polygrip), I can't eat many of my favorite foods anymore due to them being tougher or getting under my dentures and making them even more uncomfortable, and the amount of food that is under them at the end of the day is disgusting. I gag every morning when putting them in and I can't stand the way I look or sound when I have them out. My wife has been very supportive about the whole thing but I just can't deal with it. I don't have any pain or soreness anymore, just extremely uncomfortable at times to the point where I just want to rip them out and throw them out the window. Please tell me it gets better, I still have my immediate dentures which werent made right in the first place, I'm hoping once I get my perminates it will get better. Thanks for any input or advice.
