I think I did the proper prior research, but STILL a bit nervous!!
The 'immediate upper denture' was made by Affordable Dentures. I have to say the dentist there was a doll, was VERY reassuring & thought things would go very well!! He took impressions of BOTH upper & lower teeth/gums & I was able to pick up my new upper 'choppers' today. I'm having the extractions done TOMORROW by an oral surgeon).
I purchased the 'Premium Package' at Affordable Dentures. This INCLUDES:
1) the 'immediate denture'
2) the 'final denture'
3) all adjustments, including soft & hard relines until I receive my 'final denture'
Any opinions or advice?!
well.good luck for a start, i think the worst part be having all the teeth out at same time,upper dentures are far better to get on with ,as the sucksion fromthe roof of the mouth,holds the plate there ,might be a bit loose with the tempory one for a bit but once you got the permanant one's ,you should be ok and once you;'ve got used to them be able to eat ok and they should stay
only thing might bring the plate down ,i found is eating anything doughy,like a sandwhich ,but break all your food up rather than just biting into it
if you find ,your having problems and dont feel comfortable with the palte in case it slips a lot ,you can get fixodene and other things to keep the plate in place
i dont like using the fixodene as i find the glue really *yuk* but i suppose if you persovere with it and get used to it be ok
its how you feel ,it probably take you a day or two to get used to them and you can always buy the fixodene glue or powder or other types incase you need it
well good luck
