Only 6 days in and I’m regretting my decision
I had a full mouth extraction (25 teeth) performed on September 30. Here’s the problem... my bottom denture feels waaayyyyy too big for my mouth. My children say it makes my face look weird. They puff out my cheeks and my lower lip.
The dentist said I’m not biting correctly, but honestly, if I bite down the way he wants me to, it hurts too bad.
I went back 48 hours post-op and they buffed down some spots that was causing me pain, but I just feel ridiculous now with the teeth in. I feel like the bottom teeth aren’t mine. I feel like they were made for someone else. I can’t even swallow with them in because they go so far back that my tongue is constantly pushed back. My speech is mediocre, I suppose. I still have a lisp, but the dentist said that will go away.
And don’t get me started on how they said by day two I should be eating scrambled eggs. I can’t chew with those monstrous things in my mouth.
Fortunately, I am able to get the implants in approximately 4 months, but what should I do until then? Should I just deal with the awful bottoms or keep bugging my dentist? I mean with a price tag of over $5000, you would think I would get something more suited for me. Correct?
