New Partial

I just got an upper partial yesterday. The dentist gave me what they call a temporary partial denture until everything heals (6 teeth extracted). The pain isn't bad, but I feel like I sould like Daffy Duck... :(
I really hope I can get used to this and that the final dentures are thinner. The temps have metal hooks, the perms will have smaller plastic hooks and a thin metal band behind the front natural teeth.

I'm Karen, the Fixodent Community Manager, and I'd like to welcome you to our forum! Don't be discouraged about your speech. With lots of practice, you'll be able to speak clearly again. To practice, read aloud, talk to yourself in front of a mirror, and practice counting. In time, you won'tbe conscious of the fact thatyou're wearing a partial.
Keep in touch!

Thank you.  I am a new denture wearer (partial upper), and this info will help me greatly.
