I just got all my UGLY teeth pulled out 2 days ago. I have been suffering for ever with my teeth. Not only the looks of them, but the breakage, the poison, the scent, everything about them were horrible. I went to Accure Dentures and Dentistry here in Spokane where I live (my last hope) and instead of them talking me out of them, the understood what I needed and walked me through the whole process (a good denture/dentist should do this) within less than two weeks I was in getting my teeth removed, and I had some buggers. Now, two days into it, I have my beautiful teeth in. Minimal pain and some chipmunk cheeks...but other than that, I feel so much better. I smile a lot, even tho it hurts...cause I just love them to death. It's gonna be a long road to healing, but I want anyone to know that is young and suffering, that dentures are worth looking into if you no longer wanna suffer with your looks and the pain. I am so happy I did this.

You ask if it's wrong to love your dentures that much. It reminds me of one of my former girl friends. She had her teeth out at sixteen and told me about her dentures when we first met, even before we started dating. She said she was happy with them. She thought of them as just something else she wore. She also had a beautiful smile.

Hi Shan,
I'm so happy for you! It is great that you can finally be more confident and comfortable with your smile. No more toothaches..yay. I hope you're still doing great. It takes time to heal. Let us know how it's going for you.

Hi Shan,
getting your dentures is the best thing you did for yourself. Not worth suffering the pain. I intend to have my bad teeth pulled out rather than to have them "repaired" over and over again. My girlfriend had all her top and bottom teeth removed and ever since she has stopped complaining of toothache. Her dentures look so much better than her real teeth. And most of all i see the renewed confidence in her. I'm sure you feel the same too. Cheers.

Hi Shan, I believe you are in a good place. I feel the same way. I am 41 and I just got my dentures in. I was feeling down because of the pain but reading on here helps alot. I still cover my mouth when I laugh ( being used to doing it all these years) but I love mine too. I am happy that the years of embarrassment are over. I still have to learn to eat and speak with them. I plan to lose weight with this :) my confidence is slowly but surely coming back and my self ezteem is getting there. I have a great support system and I hope everyone does.

I am so glad to hear others who have gotten theirs and are in love with them. I feel like they are a part of me, but something I can "wear" as well. I have zero regrets. It's been three months now and every day I am thankful for them...Kay, I covered my mouth for years..it is such a hard habit to break. I am anxious to get my permanent one's, cause these one's are a bit too small for the shape of my face and mouth..but when I get my permanents..I will make sure to get something that fits me.. That is so exciting. I now smile with no fear and enjoy the fact that my teeth are not noticed in a negative way. Embarrassment of how one's teeth look is no fun!

Hi
I am considering having the all on 4 dental procedure here in the UK.
Some dentists say go for the traditional way,i.e. all teeth out implants in, and you go away with a full denture which you remove each night,wait 6 months for healing then have a permanent arch fitted to the secured implants. Others say go for the all on 4 method, walk out the same day with a fixed to the implants set of teeth which are fully loaded and screwed to the implants, then come back 6 months later and have the permanent final arch fitted and screwed into place.
Has anyone had experience of either of the above methods. one school says don't go for all on 4 the other says yes. how do you decide and does anyone know a website forum where these things are discussed.

Good luck to you Cassandra!! I am happy for you :)and I so know the picture issue..took me a long time to stop covering my face when I smiled.
Peter, if I could have gotten the implants right at the same time, I would have. But it's pretty expensive, so I have to wait to get them in next year, when I get my insurance renewed. If you can, do it that way, but if you can't, you can live without the implants for a bit. I did get my teeth pulled out and got a temporary set the same day, which I still have. It will be another 3 months before I get the permanents...which I am super excited for since I get to design them at the lab when it's time :)
Also, removing your implants at night usually isn't recommended. The reason it, it blocks your esophagus and makes it hard to breath, and you will snore like crazy...also, your lower jaw will separate faster if you take them out at night. I only take mine out to soak them for 15 min in the morning and 15 min at night. That is how my dentist recommended it, and also how i prefer it. Good luck in which ever direction you go.

I have the All on 4. It failed and has fractured btw 2 of the implants. It has not yet broken. Would I do it again? Yes. But I think I'd have them add 2 more implants. I had the regular implants put it. It took about 6 mos for the bone to grow around them. First I wore a snap in denture. Then a temporary bridge was placed and then a permanent made and placed in. It never comes out. It is like having your own teeth. Well, not exactly, but A WHOLE LOT BETTER THAN A DENTURE!!!

Hi all, well I see what Shan meant when she says she loves them, it took me a minute but I love mine too. I am feeling good about them and cant wait to get them perms. I look in the mirror more, no more real covering my mouth to laugh. I am still a bit self conscious when I am talking but I am getting better. My boyfriend who is my biggest supporter, is happy I got them because he sees the changing in my esteem. I even like when theyre out. Strange but true. W
After a days work I cant wait to take them out.

i wish i could say i loved mine.. they still feel funny and look funny to me.. lol but i love the fact i dont have to cover my smile and i can enjoy some foods. they are temporaries and dont fit as right as i would like for them to, but they aren't that bad. it is taking me some time to adjust and get them adjusted to where they feel comfortable in my mouth. i cannot wait till i get my perms though, which will not be until after next year when my insurance rolls over and taxes come in. i dont love mine yet.. but i am growing to like them =)

I just got upper dentures and am very self conscious of meeting an attractive woman. I feel as though I will not be as appealing once the truth of my teeth are revealed. I know it shouldn't matter, but it does.
i love my dentures

hi fred dont burden your self with tought of dentures start dating site for people with dentures there is so many atractive women with dentures who are in similar fear. my woman want me to get rid of my rotten and filled teeth with mercury poison,and i did since then she called me beautiful mouth.there is bacteria in teeth deep down at the root of teeth which can be carried into blood stream,some are speculating that could be cause of plague inside of blood wessels,not to mention possibility of other infections.women who know what they want adore men who can completely remove their dentures.

Freddie, I was worried what people would think too, but the support I found was immeasurable. Being 36 you would think one would have nice white, clean teeth, but I was fighting a lot of things, genetics being one, so I had no choice, and i have never felt better. As far as people, if they love you for you, the dentures are part of that, and if they don't well, you know the answer to that...they aren't worth your worry.
Angel, thanks for the info, I am doing the implants next year and I wanted some facts that come along with the procedure. I haven't heard some real time testimonies yet, so that is nice to know what others have gone thru.
Kitten, I know how you feel, I love mine, but they are an adjustment. My teeth were so bad that nothing could be worse than what I used to have, so the temps are perfect, but they are a heck of a lot better than covering my mouth when I smile and never smiling with pics.
Kay, SO happy for you and happy to hear that they have helped you the way they helped me. I enjoy them emphatically.:)
Beautiful smiles to you all

Hi all, well I still love my dentures. I actually like them in and like them out :) Some days they irritate me but I get over it. I really cant wait to get my permanents though.

Like you, I am 36. I love my full set of Dentures. I love my appearance I love how I can now eat anything, Nuts, Corn on cob & Raw whole apples. Getting Dentures was the best thing I've done.
