I am 28 and just had all ( I think) of my teeth removed to eventually get dentures. The surgery was morning of Oct. 8 and now Oct. 11 I am very swollen and bruised. I am managing pain pretty well and doing everything the surgeon said to do after extractions. He said it could be 4- 6 weeks before I can get the dentures. I am feeling pretty down right now. It is like shell shock. I know right now the only thing I can do is heal, but what should I do next? Should I contact my dentist and see how the healing is going to get an approx. date for fitting or what? I am just hoping right now that I don't miss too much more work since I am a teacher using my sick days to cover everything. Ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.
