I Am 18 And Happy With My Full DenturesI am 18 and have been concidering dentures for years and years. I have a friend and she has never got teeth because of genetics. We have been friends since early childhood and she got her first set at 7 when she started school. Since then I have been sure I would have dentures as early as possible, but no dentist would pull my teeth.
About a year ago I found a very nice older and retired dentist and I talked with him and got a lot of information. He told me stories about young people having teeth pulled and that he had nothing against pulling mine as far as I was 18 or more.
I have been saving money in many years for this and mom and dad was glad I did save money, but did not know my plans. So about 4 months ago I became 18 and had already made al necessary impressons and measurements. He was very accurate and did many masurements and recommended the teeth compared to my headshape aand colour and ended quite white. So 2 days after my 18th birthday I had all my teeth pulled and got dentures.
The first week was not very comfortable at all as he told me, but all became better day by day. Now I am soo happy for having achieved my goal..
Mom and dad went bananas. They have very nice teeth and could not understand , which I found natural, but I tried to tell them this was what I wanted.
Now 4 months post extraction the gums feel so nice and
