Eat something soft, soup, pasta, most people lose weight at first.....nice. but i personally have gained most of it back after one year. Good luck. Keep getting adjustments till it doesn't hurt.

That's great advice, Jeanne. Jade, it is very important to keep your dentures clean. At the end of the day when you remove your dentures, you should use a soft or ultra-soft bristled toothbrush to gently massage your gum tissues and to remove any film or debris.

To refresh your mouth, you may want to rinse with an alcohol-free mouthwash. A specially designed brush should be used to clean your dentures before you place them in a container overnight. Remember to add a small amount of liquid (water, mouthwash or denture cleanser) to the container to keep the dentures moist. I hope this helps and we wish you the best of luck! ~Rosie

Wow. Most people lose weight at first? And I wasn't even told that. My dentist is incredibly negligent. Who doesn't tell someone who's anorexic and already 30 pounds underweight that they are going to lose weight? I've lost another 10 pounds. 
What specially designed brush should be used, Josie?

Just a soft denture brush. They can be found in most department stores.

Of Course your dentures will be easier. I had got them 6 months back and now I feel a bit more comfortable and I think it will be easier afterwards. My dentist Dr. Phelan in Oakville asked me to eat soft and non sticky foods like scrambled eggs, yogurt, soup, and also can eat soft fruits in the first few weeks. When your jaw and tongue adjust to having dentures in place, you can add a wider selection of foods to your diet like cooked meat, cooked veggies, etc. You are not supposed to eat hard foods they may damage your dentures. Also ask your dentist what foods you should and shouldn’t take. Get well soon!!

You can get same day dentures. From my experience you are going the best way. I had my first set at 22, now at 49 just got my first set of high quality dentures. My dentist has said numerous times that he has much more success with patients that wait. While it's no fun,either way when you wait it's not as much pain and you'll have a lot less adjustments and really enjoy your new teeth without so much pain. Make sure to have some oragel or something for the sore spots after you get your dentures, you will have them. While it is not pleasurable to wait for an adjustment,wait a week. Your gums conform to your new teeth. When it comes to adjustments less is better. You can take off easily enough, putting back is expensive and time consuming. I hope you have a great experience with your wonderful new teeth. SMILE ALL THE TIME!!

You will want to avoid anything with small seeds/pieces (strawberries, poppy seed dressing, pepper, nuts, etc.). These types of things can hurt like heck when they get under your teeth!

Just my 2 cents.

I just thought of something else - you will want to have a toothbrush with you. Excuse yourself right after eating and even if you just use water, you will want to make sure that you don't have food on your teeth. We can no longer feel when it's there

Ok, I'm done for now.

That's a great tip, Alicia. To help even further, there are special "toothbrushes" designed to help with this. You may want to pick up an Oral-B Denture Brush to make sure your dentures are always clean!

I just had all my teeth pulled and dentures put in right after surgery.  I was able to remove the top dentures but had to go back to the dentist to take out the bottom dentures.  I hope this gets easier.  I have to say that the pain depressed me.  I can only hope this is normal and down the road all of this will be behind me.

Karen, I can tell you that the pain will fade - for me it only hurt for a few days, but everyone is different.

I will say that there will be a lot of frustration coming at you....don't let it overwhelm you. I can't seem to keep my bottoms in no matter what I do. That is the most aggravating thing for me! I have tried all of the powders, pastes and gels that you can buy at the store. I did Receive some Secure products and tried the paste yesterday, so far my favorite! Today I'll be trying the pad on the bottom and paste on top. I did get 8 hours yesterday and was thrilled!

I can only speak for myself, but I feel like I went into this blindly. I think I had it in my head that I would go have what was left of my teeth pulled, have temporary dentures for a couple of months, get my permanent dentures and be eating steak within another couple of months.

It has now been 3 months and I can't even get lower temporary teeth to stay in.

I think the steak is going to have to wait! :(

Thank you AliciaP thank you for your message.  I do hope you find something that will help your bottoms to stay in better.  Gosh,  I will try and do some research for you.  My dad and sister had a full set of dentures and they managed quite well with them so I thought that I would be the same. Little did I know what I would be facing.  Today I still have some pain.  I too wonder if I will ever eat steak again.  Take care and know that I am thinking of you.

You will have to accept your "new normal" as they say. Alicia is accurate, you will have to work at finding what works for you. The bottom is the problem, unless you get implants. Implants give the dentures something to hold onto, but they are very expensive, take a long time to complete and I for one am not able to get them. Recently I have heard of several that have had them removed for various reasons.
If you are able to afford them, look into them, otherwise accept some changes. Steak is something I will never eat again unless it is chopped very fine. I do have a Ninja Chopper $19.95 at Wal-Mart. You will find out what you can eat. Eating out I am very cautious, don't want any embarrassing moments. BUT it Will Get Better.

Thank you Karen!

I know what you mean about family members not having any problems! My dad was in the Navy when he had his teeth pulled and he got his only dentures 1-2 months later. He has never had any problems with them, doesn't use any adhesive, and eats everything including corn on the cob. The surprising part to this? That was about 55 years ago. The ONLY thing that he has had to do was get one tooth replaced because it broke. Oh what I wouldn't give to have teeth like that!

I wonder if the younger you are the easier it is to adapt. I an 72 years old, have had my dentures for almost a year and am still trying to get used to them. I can eat certain foods that have a snap to them -- crackers, chips, tacos (no lettuce), thin cookies. I have trouble with pasta unless I cut it in tiny pieces, forget pizza (I think that is a thing of the part). I don't expect to ever eat a steak or pork chops again unless cooked in the crock pot. When I go out to dinner I order nice soup, crackers ndx a soft dessert. I'm tired of letting these dentures control my IFR so I have a list of foods I can eat and stick to that. The upside I have lost about 20 lbs that was much needed.

How frustrating! Have you had any adjustments during the last year? Often times all that is needed is an adjustment by your dentist. Glad to hear you have a sense of humor about the weight loss. :) ~Rosie

Thanks for the reply Rosie. I have had many adjustments and a soft reline. I have an appointment in January. Who knows, maybe a miracle will happen. The dentist suggests I need a lower partial in order for my dentures to fit correct. After all my uppers are pulled she tells me this. My faith in her is not really great. I agree with another person on this site who said we go into this procedure blindly. I just can't understand how many people got their dentures 40 or 50 years ago and have no trouble with them--dont have to put adhesive on and can eat corn and steak.. Maybe when they were false teeth instead of dentures, they worked better. I think George Washington's worked better than some of them do now, and they were made of wood. Still losing weight as long as I stay away from ice cream.

I think younger people have more bone to support denture than us older folks.

Can a person file the denture themselve  This is the most painful thing my body has ever been thru. Any suggestions appreciated.

I don't recommend you file it yourself. If you do something wrong and they notice they may hold you responsible. You should be able to go for as many adjustments you need at no extra cost.

The dentist I had was rude and bruised my face. A night mare for sure. I pray this pain goes away in 3 weeks or so. Any help please share.

Packs of ice. Gargle with salt water a lot. Get adjustments on your denture while you are going through the healing process.

Arnica montana for the bruising. Willow herb might help with the pain and inflammation. There are various extracts available.
I'm sorry your dentist was a brute, Marcella. 
The warm salt water rinses help a lot.

Arnica is one of the greatest things on earth.

A lady I worked with several years ago told me about it, but I was skeptical and didn't try it until a couple years later and now I'm never without it. It gets rid of pain and bruises on no time at all!

What is Arnica and how is it used?

I like arnica too. I heard about it several yrs ago and use it when I need. Basically it's a small pellet you take. It's from a tree root. No bad side effects that I've ever heard. Or sold as a cream now.
