I had several extractions and when I went home I followed instructions on the printed material that I was given. I still ended up having problems, severe pain, and infections.
My next visit, I was told I did everything wrong. Not according to the instructions they gave me! I chose the better quality set of dentures, thinking they would look nicer, last longer, and above that, clean better. I went back several times to adjust the fit.
Since I had a little suction (in the back part) of the top denture, I was told it was a good fit. As soon as I start talking, the front drops. "Suck it back up," they said. Ok.
It stays till I start talking again. I gave up. I don't talk much now, and haven't for over a year. I can say a few words, or short sentences and get by.
Can I tell a funny story about the grandkids? No....not without my top teeth falling. So I simply don't talk much. I cannot use the stick'm stuff.
Apparently I am allergic to something in those adhesives.
Now to address that better quality product: There are tiny pit holes, and smearing of the flesh colored plastic onto the teeth. I love pepper on my food, but no longer eat use it because it seems to find those little pits and won't come out easily.
Eating: Sadly, I am starving my body of good eating habits.
I can no longer eat raw veggies, or anything else that needs to be chewed a lot. My diet consists of soft baby-type food. I miss salad. I miss fresh veggies and nuts and .....!
My bottom dentures "float." That is what they are suppose to do, right? Mine seem to grind roughly across my gums. Painful! I live with horrible pain in my mouth every single day of my life.
My last check-in, they said they fit good. Use stick'm. I will, if I can find one that does not feel like acid poured into my mouth. I did not like being talked down to.
It was like they knew what they were going to say to me before I said anything. I will not go back there.
