Day 3 post extractions & immediate dentures
I had a total of 10 teeth extracted 3 days ago and have a new upper denture and a partial lower denture. I really feel like I am doing better than I originally expected. Aside from some sore spots and my speech, I feel like I have gained a ton of confidence with my new smile! I have always had horrible teeth and always said that I would have dentures by the time I was 40.... well, I am 42 and this has been a long time coming. My dentist told me to keep them in overnight the first night, but that I could take them out the next night (which would have been last night). However, I have not taken them out yet because I am terrified that I wont be able to put them back in. I had them put in on a Thursday afternoon, and it is now Saturday morning. I know that I should take them out and rinse them off, and give my mouth a rinse with salt water. Has anyone else had any trouble with getting dentures back in after taking them out for the first time?
