New First Time Denture Wearer
Hi all, I am a relatively new denture wearer. 8 teeth extracted with a full upper denture about 5 weeks ago. I’m really curious about the “immediate “ denture. I asked my dentist when I would get my permanent one and he said that the one I have is permanent. Should I be questioning this. Paid a lot of money and don’t quite understand how all of this works yet. I also have to use adhesive everyday. My dentist said I would have to use adhesive because of the shape of my palate and because of bone loss. I am learning to adjust. I do feel very blessed though and so thankful that I know longer have all the infection and pain I did with my teeth. I also know how blessed I am with my overall experience. Super difficult emotionally but working through that part. Had very minimal pain and was able to eat within just a few days. Still need to deal with lower teeth. Would really appreciate suggestions. I have 5 teeth that may be able to be saved then just have a partial. If not then I would have those five pulled and get a full lower.
