First. A Happy New Year to all.
On to the story.
Today I began the second part of my journey wearing dentures.
As you'll recall, last year I had my upper teeth removed and a
full upper plate made. I have gotten used to that. Solid solid
food is still, to this day, not all that easy for mr s. -that's
me- to eat. I finish last -and I am not racing- most of the time.
The lower teeth came out today. As of 11 EST (-5 GMT), I am totaly
with out my natural teeth.
I needed more Novacain today then I did last year. More to the tune of
four shots to the left jaw, three to the right and one, spaced along the
front gum. It all wore off around 1300 (1 PM).
I can speak well and have the occaisional twinge from the sutures.
Meds to combat the pain and infection. NO. I don't have an infection.
The meds for that are to keep it from developing.
In four weeks I begin the final steps in all of this. I'll have a mold
made of the lower gum. Five weeks later, with a week break to allow the dental
practice a vacation -their choice, not mine, I'll have my lower deture in place.
I am hoping that solid solid foods will be easier to eat. I will trully miss
a good deal of foods if it becomes too hard to eat. Corn on the cob and apples
being two of them.
I'll keep y'all posted.
