Ive had my lower partial for 4 years.
Ive hated my partial I know I need to love my partial.
I lost my front bottom teeth to gum Disease.I had a mouthful of theeth as a child and the fangs, , the fangs are gone.
My teeth are really pretty good. I drink coffee and TEA.
My parents could never afford good Dent care [braces I needed] but we did practice good mouth hygiene as a family in the 60's. Teeth are so so important , heres a thought... if only teeth would grow back or self straighten like a lizard regrows a tail>> I believe in taking care of our theeth, your smile is very essential to the body, if you cant smile?? then what do ya really have?
My flipper was placed in with blood still on my chin,the same day of extractions, I felt nothing ,tell the dent to give you drugs~~.
I use baby teething jell now, to numb the soreness from my partial, they sell bubblegum flav, also
when you put you partial in and out, dont forget to place a towel in the sink to cushion the fall if you drop them.
Ive never slept with my partial in. I dont really want to.
I did the stupid by placing my theeth in my coat pocket when I first got them, cause my gums
just couldnt take the pain and soreness, dont do that either, dont put your theeth in your pocket or purse.
