Re: Full complete dentures

I had my teeth extracted 2.5 months using novacaine. The extractions were not painful, nor was the healing process. However, I got my immediate dentures after the front teeth were pulled and the pain from the dentures was agonizing, to the point where I sobbed when it came time to put them in. My dentist checked things out and advised me to wait several weeks for the gums to heal - I guess this is not standard procedure as most people get immediates and wear them. Anyway, I went five weeks without teeth, got my completely remade permanent dentures and have not had many problems, beside the odd sore spot. Dentists are different and I feel that the success or failure with dentures has a lot to do with how your dentist treats the issues you have. Discuss with him/her the situations and your anxieties. Do not let them leave you in distress or pain. That is not what you're paying them for.
