Having your new Denture's fitted
It's a Big Day in your Life. Prepare positively and go for it!
So, you've found the right Dentist, you've come to a decision on treatment and the day of fitting arrives.
A Good Breakfast !!
At the Dentist, no fuss, no delay, straight in and after a caring chat, in go the injections of local anaesthetic.
I was expecting a short delay between having the teeth out and the dentures going in, but no, in they went straight away.
This part is a little hard; you have a numb face, probably bleeding and the most disgusting taste of the jabs going around you.
This was all done in only 55 minutes. I had a further appointment that afternoon for the Dentist to check out how I felt, where the particular sore spots were.
I returned again three days later and again the day after that.
It becomes apparent though that maybe some area's are going to hurt and it's a case of time for it all to settle.
TIPS FOR THE DAY
Try and get the appointment early morning. Waiting around all day's going to make you nervous
