Ten years ago, when my dad got dentures, he thought his problems were solved. For years he had struggled with pain and sensitivity in his mouth. His teeth were in terrible condition. They were broken and falling out. His gums bled when he ate or brushed. He didn’t smile anymore. Breathing outside in the winter hurt. He didn’t like speaking in front of people. And photographs? Forget about it!
He finally went and got dentures. He was so excited. His problems were going to be solved. And he was going to eat a steak. He was going to take more pictures, he was going to smile more. He was anxious get his life back.
We went to a place that did “teeth in a day.” My dad expected some recovery time. But 4 months later, things weren’t right. He couldn’t even wear his dentures. Gone were the dreams of eating steak, or smiling, or taking photos. He tried wearing them and they shifted around, caused blisters and pain in his mouth…. at one point he said that it felt like someone was punching him in the gums every time he put them in.
Can you imagine?
So many people live with that every day! Or, they do wear them and have to deal with the embarrassment of their dentures shifting or falling out in front of people. Often times, they quit wearing them altogether, which is just as bad as having bad teeth!
So, you’re wondering now, “What happened with your dad?”
My dad ended up going to another dentist (he lived in Illinois, at the time) and got his dentures relined. Additionally, he got mini-implants for his upper and lower dentures that locked them into place. I thought that was going to be a big deal, but it really wasn’t. They did that part in a day, but that’s all it took. He went home, had a little recovery, and was eating steak and ribs with me the next summer when he came back to Denver.
