Just sayin hi

Hey guys and gals. I haven’t been on much lately. Pretty busy. But the great news is, I have nothing new to say. My reline on 8/2 has been great. I stopped using fixodent powder and went to super poligrip with no zinc. No more roof of the mouth issues. Can’t complain. Hope you all are doing well too!

Hi Charlie, I haven't been on too much either. Glad things are well with you. I just went to the dentist today for a measurement to get my wax try-in in September. Final stage is getting close.
Hope everyone is good out there in denture world...!!

Not really. I still have some marks on my cheeks, but I really think it’s just from them rubbing my teeth. No sensitivity at all. No more bumps on my palate either. I do have a question though. When this reline becomes loose, what’s your opinion on a snug up using DenSureFit? Looks pretty easy to do. Just to get me by through November.

Yea that might be from the rubbing. I told you I've had white on my cheeks from chewing them when I chew food. lol. Are your relines all used up? We don't have DenSureFit here so I've never heard of anyone using it personally. I think I've read people used it here and were ok with it. It's like adhesive. To each their own on which brand/product they like. We do have seabond in the stores and some people like to use that as it's just strips.

No, I still have relines. I just hate begging them to do it. The DenSureFit is an at home silicone reline kit, so not an adhesive . Says it’s good for around three months. That would be enough to get me into my perms without begging my dentist to do another

And as for now a little powder is all I need for 16 hours. I guess my shrinking has slowed down a little as I get closer to the 4 month mark.

You paid for those Relines so use them up if you need to MR! :) Yes I know what it is but I don't really know people that do diy relines. How many relines do you have left?

Once you hit 4 mth book one and then book one for your 5th mth and you're good to go.

Hey hey Charlie Brown!! Looking good my dude!! I haven’t been on much lately either. Hit the 2 month mark on the 17th but otherwise nothing new to report. Still waiting for my first reline (scheduled for 9/17) but that fun little combo adhesive trick you taught me has been working great so I know I can make it till then. No issues with food or anything but I do have a couple of sores that I’m getting taken care of tomorrow, nothing major. Not denture related but I took a new job and I start Monday! Super excited for it! Glad to hear you’re doing well!! Keep on smiling my friend!!

Good luck with the new job! And the adhesive combo is still working for me. Almost 4 months without a reline on the bottoms and they still stay in all day.

Thank you! I’m really looking forward to the change! That adhesive trick has been a total game changer I swear! I haven’t had a single bad day (at least not because of dentures) since I started using it! Question about relines, not sure if you can answer. Will it add bulk? As in, will my teeth sit lower again once they put one in? I feel like they’re finally sitting in a way that I’m a bit more comfortable with from an aesthetics standpoint. Call me vain, but I really don’t want to look super toothy and gummy lol

Great question. And I don’t think that’s vanity at all. After you see your denture with all that reline material you will think it has to add bulk. But after you bite and hold it for 5 minutes it adds almost nothing. The places it adds material is where your gums are not anymore. If that makes sense. Then they fit like a glove.

Ah man, that is so great to hear!! I still have a few weeks to go but I was definitely worrying about it. My good sir, you have put my mind at ease! Thank you!!!!

No problem. Your gums just kinda push the stuff into all the gaps.
