Dentures in immediately after teeth pulled vs wait for gums to heal???

All of the dentists I've spoken to want to put the dental plates in as soon as the teeth are pulled, but is it better to wait?? Have to have this done in the immediate future and very scared. Also am very skinny, really concerned about more weight loss due to not being able to eat!

Had teeth pulled and full top and bottom immediate dentures yesterday.

Swelling is starting to go down and teeth are moving. I am almost 24 hours out so I will be removing them to rinse for the first time. Can I use a little adhesive to keep them still?

Intimacy and dentures

I am very self-concious and I don't want anyone including my husband to see me without my dentures. It has been very hard to manage this.

So emotional 😭

Maybe it's the holidays, but probably not since I had my upper teeth removed a week ago tomorrow. I cry everytime I see myself in a mirror and whenever my husband of 25yrs looks in my direction. I have an immediate denture here, but they didn't put it in after the extractions. I put it in the next

Are Dentures Suposed to Be As Sharp as your Natural Teeth were?

I'm only a month into my full set...so I try to remind myself I still dont have full "biting" ability. But, I feel like my dentures are soo dull, that they dont tear my food well at all.

Gross alert!!! Do your dentures get mold between liner and denture?

I clean my dentures with Efferdent soak, and I brush them with or without toothpaste when I brush the nubs still left in my mouth. But I have seen black areas that look like something is growing between the denture and the liner.  Nothing I try seems to get rid of it.  The only thing I ha

The Value of Support Groups

All: I don't post that often, but periodically I observe something that I believe I should at least weigh in on. A couple of posts noted that some dentists essentially denied the utility of these online support groups. That is simply idiotic. If my dentist had done so, I would have found a new denti
