Dentures in immediately after teeth pulled vs wait for gums to heal???

All of the dentists I've spoken to want to put the dental plates in as soon as the teeth are pulled, but is it better to wait?? Have to have this done in the immediate future and very scared. Also am very skinny, really concerned about more weight loss due to not being able to eat!

Had teeth pulled and full top and bottom immediate dentures yesterday.

Swelling is starting to go down and teeth are moving. I am almost 24 hours out so I will be removing them to rinse for the first time. Can I use a little adhesive to keep them still?

Hi! I’m about to get dentures. I’m worried about what I can eat while on pain killers that first day. I get really nauseous if I don’t have something in my stomach, and I don’t think a smoothie is going to be keep me from keeping the pain killer down. Does anyone have any suggestions?

So emotional 😭

Maybe it's the holidays, but probably not since I had my upper teeth removed a week ago tomorrow. I cry everytime I see myself in a mirror and whenever my husband of 25yrs looks in my direction. I have an immediate denture here, but they didn't put it in after the extractions. I put it in the next

Are Dentures Suposed to Be As Sharp as your Natural Teeth were?

I'm only a month into my full set...so I try to remind myself I still dont have full "biting" ability. But, I feel like my dentures are soo dull, that they dont tear my food well at all. I'm simply relying on the strength of my sore jaw to 'pummel" my food. This is stuff that we would never think ab

Gross alert!!! Do your dentures get mold between liner and denture?

I clean my dentures with Efferdent soak, and I brush them with or without toothpaste when I brush the nubs still left in my mouth. But I have seen black areas that look like something is growing between the denture and the liner.  Nothing I try seems to get rid of it.  The only thing I ha
