Re: Due to get my perms-will they fit better?
I waited for my gums to heal post extraction two and a half months ago and have recently started the process of getting dentures made. I had impressions done last Saturday and today went for the first wax try in. If all goes well I should finally have my dentures in a week or so. My dentist wanted me to wait for six months before making the dentures. However, being toothless for that extended time did not appeal to me. The two and a half months without teeth was in itself quite a trial. My medical aid would unfortunately only cover the perms and not immediates, hence having gone the route I did. A lot of resorption has already taken place and I'm sure I will have a good fit. How did your husband manage without teeth for a whole year? Was he able to work in that time?
He had to manage, we couldn't afford to get his dentures right away. He just went in to see how much it would be, but the oral surgeon would not allow him to go home with his teeth, he had abcesses and bone cyst.
It wasn't easy on him not being able to eat but since the kids were small we ALL ate mush together. I wouldn't eat normally because I didn't want to make him feel bad, after awhile his gums toughened up and he was eating solids. As for his looks without teeth and working, he took one week off, he talked fine, and you couldn't tell he had no teeth. Men with mustaches and a beard HIDE it ... LoL When they took my upper away from me to make me a new one I wanted to GROW A MUSTACHE!!!!
