Lizzy, you look great! You really look amazing with your New mouthpiece. What are you using to keep them in and how do you feel speaking as well as eating?

Well I've had them since December 22, 2015. I only tried using adhesive once which wAs on New Year's Eve and when I got home and took the dentures out my gums bled. Guess my gums aren't totally healed. So the bottoms don't move at all. It's the top denture that I am adjusting to. I kinda have to suck up the top palate so they can create suction which helps keep them in place. Plus I have a soft relign which creates more suction for the top. I do have a small lisp when I say certain words like safe, soft. Words with an S basically. Lol. But I'm wondering if I should try the adhesive again because I can't eat anything but applesauce and pudding.

Lizzy, one more question? How long did it take for the extractions? Also, I would think you my need to stay on the applesauce and maybe some blended soups for a few more weeks.

So my first 3 appointments were like this: one was for impressions. Second was for the bite block and choosing color of teeth. The third was trying on the top denture since I had no teeth up there except root tips. Then the fourth appointment was extractions and immediate dentures. It took about an hour to remove 26 teeth/root tips. All she did was numb me up pretty good. She did 3 sets of injections. And if I felt any pain she would inject me again. Almost didn't happen due to my blood pressure being too high.

I went to aspen dental. They r really great here in Texas. I've read some horrible reviews but they were so nice and caring here. I paid 4,256.56. Got the comfylites which is the best you can get. I read the other types they had and these were the best. What costed so much was extractions which was 100-200 a tooth!!!!! Insurance helped me so much. My husbands insurance paid a lot because my initial cost was close to 8,000

I was ashamed at first but now I embrace it. I was looking horrible for over 7 years and now it feels good having teeth. I'm not ashamed of my before pics. That's my past. This after pic is my future.

Hey Lizzy,

I remember when I had my extractions 10 months ago. Had 17 extractions. Most of the extractions were post cores, crowns etc.
I do remember having blood in my adhesive and for up to 3 weeks. Also, my extraction sights stayed open for 2 months. Its better not to wear adhesive, because it pulls the blood clots and thin layered skin that is growing back over the holes. Also, the adhesive will get stuck inside the extraction sight. You will have to clean them out. If the adhesive stays in the extraction sight, it will cause a infection or skin will grow over it. Not good.
Try swishing with salt water, not alcohol based mouth wash. The mouth is one of the fastest healing parts on the body.

If you have any other questions, just ask. Aquagirl2479@gmail.com

:) Jenn Ps, try the little strips for a substitute for adhesive. I will post later with the name. You can cut them to make them fit better.
