When do I start using Fixodent?
Hi Im 43 and had extractions done in steps. I've always had bad teeth since I was a kid, my Mother would always tell me I had my father's side teeth. I always wore a partial but about 1 year ago my gums kept on getting infections so my dentist suggested I get a full denture and extract the rest of my teeth. About 3 months ago I had 4 teeth extracted in the back they the Dr wanted that to heal before he started making impressions. Two days ago I had my remaining front 4 upper teeth removed and denture put right in. Not going to lie as soon as I got home the throbbing started and had to start with the pain meds the Dr prescribed to me. The first day,I left them in since the Dr told me not to take out until appointment the next day by him. When I went he didn't take them out and said to keep them in until after you eat dinner then keep out overnight. They don't come out the same way as a partial , so yes Im guilty I U- Tube it and then I was able to remove them.I put them back in without any paste since I wasnt sure if I should use that stuff yet. My question today is since I read a few responses,when should I start wearing the fixodent and I shouldn't put near extraction site until healed right?
