Please no bashing ...
I'm 32yrs old and have had a lot of dental issues for 10+ yrs.
I just got my bottom denture yesterday and they also had to cut into my gums to remove bone spurs. I took it out last nite and when I went to put it back in this morning it took me about 25 tries and literal tears =(
Does anybody else have dentures?? How long did it take to get used to them??
I just wanna eat normally again and would like to remove and insert bottom denture pain free =\

Omg I got featured!!!! Maybe this way I will get more advise!! Thank you CafeMom!!!!

It will take several weeks. Your gums are swollen right now. If you can't eat, then go buy some ensure, at least you'll get some nutrition.

Also rinse your mouth with salt water several times a day. It will take a little time to get used to them. I have top only.

I heard top dentures are wayyyy easier to get used to .... I'm gonna end up with atleast a partial on top but don't have the money yet =\ atleast this way I only gotta get used to 1 instead of both at the same time.
I'm so embarrassed havin dentures =\
Which is why I posted annonamously

My mom said to leave it out till swelling goes down ..... I feel like that's a bad idea
The worse part is that I have a 12wk old daughter that I'm breastfeeding so I gotta eat regardless of how it feels

My dentist told me to leave them while the swelling goes down. Don't take them out unless the dr tells you to. I know how you feel, I'm young to.Thank goodness my dentures don't bother my husband. I've also heard that top ones are easier. Try to eat soft food like eggs, yogurt, soup etc. I remember I couldn't even bite scrambled eggs at first lol. Hang in there, it will get easier in a few weeks. Do get yourself some nutrition drinks especially since you're breastfeeding.

I've just gotten so used to not having teeth when I "bite down" ..... Feels like they are sooooo close to my top teeth =\
Ignore the white spots that's from my flash but do u think they look "real"

You aren't suppose to take them out for the first 24 hours because then the gums swell too much and then like what happened to you, you have a hard time getting them back in. I am 32 and have had full dentures for 5 years.
