Got 26 teeth extracted for immediate dentures, ask away
 

 
Quick background,I am turning 50 this summer and have had periodontal disease for the last 12 years at least.My old dentist was able to give me more time when I started going every 3 months for cleanings and water picking at home for about the last 8 years.

Eventually the past few years have been painful and there is no getting back to full teeth health or or getting any better when it comes to PD.My teeth were still decent looking but my gums were infected and not getting better.

I decided to get extractions and immediate dentures.I had 26 teeth extracted 8AM on 1/27.
Plan is for two posts on the bottom to be installed in 4 months,then permanent snap in dentures 4 months later.I may get tbe top done next year but for now ,pallette suction does the job.

I am blessed to be able to afford this through insurance, and just as blessed I can take off work for 12 days to recover.

I am currently on day five, and wanted to make a thread if any BXers are on the fence about going to partial or full dentures.I did not go with a partial as they (Aspen Dental) could not guarantee it would last more than 5 years.So figured might as well pull them all now.I love my new smile, teared up a bit when they passed me the mirror after the wotk was done.This journey is not a quick fix, it takes time.You can go the "All on 4 in one day" route, but that has its pitfalls down the road, whereas the eight months to a year side does not.I also had a bone graft in the lower front jaw.My follow up on the 4th day went well, healing very fast and well.I am scheduled for soft reline on the 13th, and I cannot wait for that day.


So while I have downtime, ask me any questions you may have as dental issues isnt something discussed often, but SO important when it comes to blood and heart health.Maybe I can help someone who is trying to decide or in fear of the procedure.I will be fully honest im my answers.

Edit: I will not entertain any trolls, you will be added to ignore.What magic concoction worked for you or someone else, great! I chose my path, dont be fu*king d*ckhead.This is for others that may be suffering and looking at this path.

No percs were prescribed, only Tylenol 3 w/ codiene and 800mg Ibuprofen. I stayed on my pain med schedule from jump, slept like a baby first night with my dentures in.I stopped taking the Ibuprofen and Ty3 after day two.

Has been great really,.no pain, some people have their worst days on day three and four.I did not, I icepacked day one, stayed on the Ibuprofen and Ty3 schedule and it was golden

The ONLY pain had during the last five days was the needles to pull the teeth..Seriously.

Yea, I noticed they aren't prescribing those high level pain meds any more. Had to get a wisdom tooth extracted and a crown for a cracked front tooth. That experience made me not care about getting a shot in the gums to deal with the major pain of constant tooth pain.

Salute to you and Godspeed on the recovery. Worst I've had was four teeth extracted in order to make room for my braces when I was a teen. sh*t felt like my entire head was swollen at times.

At least two weeks , you definitely want to keep it laid back and heart rate down while recovering.My girl understands as we discussed my limitations after surgery weeks ago.

Thank you sir!

Yep, the opiod epidemic make dentist extremely reluctant to give oxy or percs.

I expected pain after the 5 hours it took to regain feeling in tongue and jaw, but I was good.

Yes tooth pain is some of the worst.I look forward to not dealing with it anymore and living a healthier life.

Hmm that's an interesting question..have you heard about the age regenerative work they've been doing in trials? That sh*t is crazy and I wonder if it could be applied here to rejuvenate and restart tooth growth. That said, the cycle of baby to adult teeth might not be something can experience twice, but who knows.

All I have eaten if you will, is Ensure Max Protein, Jello cups, ice cream, Choibani Yogurt drinks and applesauce.

You cant really chew anything until soft reline.My dentist told me I will hate these for the first two weeks.Part of the process.

I think all metal there is a high chance a person may reject them.Your body is f*ghting with simple plastic pieces that it doesnt want, its considered foreign.

I am not a scientist so cant answer #2.

Thats not totally true.If you want to keep your teeth, you need to brush/floss AND visit the dentist twice a year for cleanings.The cleanings are the most imperative in teeth health as they will keep.your gums heallthy.Once the gums are trashed, its a wrap.

Not getting regularly scheduled cleanings and not flossing.Some folks have hereditary teeth issues.I did not, just hated the metal and scraping of dentist visits and I didnt floss properly.

So either you go and get your cleanings, (invest in a water pik for excellent flossing) or lose your teeth.Message to you younger folks.

Will your gums be able to heal now or is there a chance they might not go back to normal?

I had periodontal issues as a teen cuz my parents never taught me good oral health habits.

I was able to maintain but over the last few months i lost a lot of bone in one of my back molars and im probably going to have it removed. Hoping to salvage the rest of my teeth though.

Hope it goes well for you dude.
