Dentist said no Benzodent, adhesives, or mouth wash...really??
It's been 7 days since I had 20 extractions and dentures put in immediately after. The pain has gotten better, especially after she did a few adjustments, but the Benzodent has still been a lifesaver. However, she told me yesterday not to use it for at least a week or two..that she's worried the gunk will get in the extraction holes (I don't have any stitches). She also said no adhesives until the gums heal. The bottoms are pretty loose and I really have trouble eating. And she said no mouthwash! What should I do about my stank breath, lol? Are all these instructions normal? I've read a lot of boards and I know I've seen people using all three at this point...but maybe I'm wrong and just impatient!
