Re: just got all teeth out on top

Mary Anne,

Yes, my speech has been affected. Mostly just a strong lisp with the S'es. Also, the bottom teeth tend to come loose and flop around if I talk a great deal. Fortunately, I am a stay-at-home mom. If I had a job where I had to answer the phone, it would be difficult.

Also, I cannot yet chew food.

Are you getting both upper & lower dentures? It's the lower ones that are keeping me from chewing. The top ones are pretty trouble-free. I also have a hard time keeping the bottom ones in. I hope it will be better after I get new liners next week.
