New denture comfort food!

I'm on day no. 2 of my dentures, and discovered a great food that seems to work very well with the tentativeness of eating with these things: ravioli!Not only are they tasty, but they almost seem tailor-made for this ecxact situation! Try it! Just make sure they cool down a good bit, they'll go down like magic, without challenging your new dentures with all kinds of unpredictable shapes!

general anesthesia. But stupid me forgot to make sure I was hydrated the day before. They had a really hard time finding a vein. My arms were black and blue for a week.

I just had exactly the same problem.  Took forever to find a vein and my arms look like somebody beat me up!  If I need anesthesia again I'll try staying more hydrated, although I always drink a lot of water...  Never had a problem so didn't know if that would help.  Thanks for the hint.

Jayelle ~ I just got off the phone with the lady at Dental Options. I asked her if Louisiana had a similar program and she gave me a phone number for you: 504-940-5200. The program here in Ohio is for people without dental insurance. It isn't free, it is discounted according to your income. I hope you check it out ~ who knows, they might be able to help you.

I did it without being knocked out because it is so expensive for general anesthesia. I think, if I could have ~ I might have done it, not sure. How many teeth did you say you need extracted?? I only had 13 left.

I went to Aspen Dental for the x-rays but the dentist was so rude and demeaned me so badly I didn't go back. However saying that, it was actually a Godsend even though at the time the feeling of worthlessness was pretty great, I found out that every other Thursday in Omaha they have dentists from Creighton do as much work as they can on you in 2 1/2 hours for $20. That includes extracting, fillings, root canals, etc. It is the Senior students (ready to graduate) that do this. Fabulous opportunity for them and me. I was treated very kindly and with respect.

Mickey it makes me sad to think any professional would treat you so poorly, obviously they have more business than they can handle. I am happy for you to find such a great deal on dental care. Good luck with all your future care.

I'm being told all of them @ $250 per tooth, I have a consult for a 2nd opinion next week, but I will look into this as well. I'm glad to see some of Yall were allowed to stay conscious, he told me that wasn't an option. Thanks :)

there are different prices for extractions from your molars to front teeth to Dracula ones and if their still there wisdom teeth I think its between wisdom and molar are the most expensive

Not sure where I read the recommendation but for a treat someone suggested WalMart Pound cake, easy to eat.

I tried their pound cake and it wasn't bad and fairly easy to eat.

Sound good ~ last night I got a Marie Callender's frozen banana cream pie ~ kinda pricey, but worthit. I picked a few of the sliced almonds off of the top and the rest required no chewing at all ~ you don't have to eat the crust ~ I tried a little bit and it was ok

My husband just had 2 wisdom teeth extracted and we discovered cheesecake and quiche. Now why couldn't I figure those two YUMMY dishes out when I was fresh from my extractions? =P

I have heard of quiche but I don't know what it is or how to make it. Sorry ~ do you buy it already made ~ frozen or something??

I've made it once. It's a pain to make, but I'm not a very enthusiatic cook. It can usually be found frozen or in the fresh prepared section of the supermarket.

You can usually buy quiche already made. It's just a matter of finding somewhere that has it. I've been eating a lot of pasta and Greek spinach pie, which is available where I shop. I made a pot of meatballs and when cut up small they go down easy. I think I'm going to put together some baked ravioli today, which will get me through a lot of the week. And the supermarket I go to carries some Panera soups in their fresh prepared food department, so I splurged on some of that. I am losing some weight, which I guess is good, but my jeans are falling off which is not as good.

Let the jeans fall off! This was the best time for me to loose weight with very little effort. I went from a size 18 to a 12 in 5 months! I joined a health club where I could paddle in the pool and then whirlpool to regain my strength and I am happy to buy new jeans! Plus it gave me something else to focus on besides my oral surgery & dentures. People aren't sure what has changed but they do see I look great! Go the distance!
