I am currently 2 weeks give a few days post Extraction. I have had all of my upper and all lower minus 6 teeth for an anchor to partials including one wisdom tooth removed. I currently recieve medicaid as I am disabled. In Michigan Medicaide pays for extractions and Dentures but they do not covery temporary dentures so I am left with 6 bottom teeth and nothing else. I am still waking up with blood in my mouth and I have been known to be a tooth grinder. Is there anything I can do to protect the tender gums on the top of my mouth so they can heal properly? Any ideas on how to eat? Also I have about 1-2 cm of jaw bone showing that was rubbed off by the dentists surgical instruments wile removing my wisdom tooth, was told this will eventually heal.
