Is this a senior moment or what. I just spent nearly two hours searching the house for my bottom denture, then low and behold it appears on the floor where it must have dropped from the shelf above. Next week I am out of action for two days as I need to have a large filling and an extraction of a tooth that can't be repaired anymore, then have to go back for my denture to be fitted back in next day.

So glad you found them katieoxo60 . Do take it easy this week, you've got so much on. Thinking of you. xx 🌼🌱
I have had this done on many occassions over the years , it does take a while for the gums to totally heal depending on how healthy your gums are . I have gum disease so it takes longer, but usually the swelling goes down in a few days , the gum healing can take upto three months. If you get pain that worsens it is usually a sign of infection which you don't want beleive me its so painful, don't scimp on keeping your mouth clean, take care and hope all heals quickly for you.
Thank you Katie, as for infection I guess I was lucky they said my lower front was so infected that it was blocking the anesthetic from numbing my gums which made them had to give me more shots, Dr. Said happy he found it while extracting my teeth instead of after putting in denture, again thank you katie, I'll keep you posted. Oh do you use adhesive. Peppyo5
No I do not use adhesive, my teeth fit snug so far, as both are partial dentures. on my bottom denture I have a wire to attach it to another tooth to keep it in place only problem with the wire is occassionally it can cause friction and mouth ulcers and it fits so well I sometimes struggle to get it out to clean. My dentist is a dental surgeon so he can deal with most problems and adjust the denture to suit the shape of your mouth. I have had dentures now for over fifty years as I broke the top front teeth in an accident at work. Take care and good luck with the healing.
