Re: What to expect when I get my dentures?
I think you'll do very well. Your gums will shrink the most the first year, so make sure you get your relines. It will take a little getting use to, talking and eating. Most people do fine with the tops, and some people have a harder time with the lowers. I got a upper and lower partial around 10 years ago and looking back it was not bad.
At your age, I would start putting money away for implants maybe at a later date for the lowers. I wish I would of done that. If I had to do it all over again, I would of got all my lowers pulled and had a few implants put in, but back then implants were around as much, and didn't have the internet to find stuff out.
Don't worry about people knowing your wearing dentures, because they look so perfect, now days its hard to tell, with all the cosmetic dentristy going on , seems everyone has perfect teeth if you know what I mean. Good luck, keep us posted.
