I feel the same. I'm just now getting the courage to go to church. I have been alone for a while now. My son's miss me they say that we don't care about your teeth mom.

How are you coping now is it better, god bless
@melissa_tolson , are you feeling better . I have had so many negative emotions. I'm in my six week with new dentures I hated them at first but getting better but my front still stick out. I haven't gotten the permanent ones yet.
Perms are like rocks in your mouth. I miss my immediate ones. They had soft lining so it didn’t irritate my gums. I have wait til next Monday to readjust my dentures because of my sinus surgery last month. I had a huge fungus ball in my right sinus. It was causing so many issues. So I haven’t wore them for 3 weeks :(. I’m hoping I can eat my solids after next week. Sugary stuff and mashed potatoes don’t help.
Yep and I have to get mine readjusted since i had surgery on my sinuses. They had to cut in my gums to remove a fugus ball (another one was also growing) in my right sinus. So my dentures don't fit as well on my uppers. I had this fungus ball in me for years and didn't know. Now I gotta see what it will cost me to readjust it. May not cost me anything since they didn't give a specific time frame for altering my perms. Dentures are better than having no teeth though.
Just wondering, I have the immediate type - only upper, but the front teeth were made so short and my pulled teeth so different... can you change the shape or size of teeth after they are made?
@luva from my experience. The teeth will mold itself after a while. Looks fine on outside, but under, depending on how you eat will shape under teeth.
Yes I am wearing full denture on bottom partial on top. The bottom are difficult, I use SECURE it works,

Had my teeth pulled a few days ago. Getting very depressed. Can’t eat or drink with my immediate dentures. Have gone 2x now for adjustments and still can’t eat and have hard time talking.
@Redangus I'm 2 days away from 2 months of having my extractions and immediate dentures. Not a big fan of the whole situation at all. Today I was able to fully have the top plate in with out pain. All said and done I totally do not regret having the teeth removed. I no longer have the pain and abscess's going on. Yes the top still feel like a mouth full, but I do feel better with the look. Still adjusting and healing. Hope by may or June of 2022 to have the regular dentures and loose the immediate ones.
I still have depressing days, but it seems to be less and less each week. Eating is still a issue, but on the lighter side I have lost 24 lbs. It will get better with time.
@Redangus I had an adjustment the other day and it hasn't done any good at all. I don't even want to put the dentures in at all. Thankfully I work from home and my very understanding boss and co-workers are doing what phone work I have for me because my words come out in a slush without my dentures in, and it isn't any better with them in.
I know this thread is 4 years old. But I got mine out 2 months ago. The depression is so bad for me. My face doesn’t look like my face anymore. I look like a different person. It’s very hard to adjust. I can’t afford dentures or implants. I don’t even like my best friends seeing me. I feel like I made a huge mistake
@KydaW I feel 100% the same. I'm almost 2 months out from a full extraction. The pain is awful and I'm starting to regret this. I hate the way I look and talk. I can't eat in front of anyone because I have to take them out. I don't recognize myself. I feel like a goblin.

I just got my remaining 17 teeth removed last Friday and got immediate dentures. But OMG, I wasn't prepared for the mental and emotional anguish I'm feeling now. The immediate dentures are horrendously uncomfortable and won't stay in place so I just quit wearing them while my gums heal. Thankfully I don't look too strange when I leave the house since I can throw on a mask, but still...and I'm sick of talking weird, sick of soft foods, and am seriously regretting this whole thing.
I hope it gets better. It HAS to get better....
How can we improve?
