Got New Teeth What Denture Products Are Safe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Celiac did a number on my teeth, like many of us have happen and I had to have most of my upper teeth pulled a couple weeks ago and now have a temporary partial plate that of course since I am still healing is getting looser and looser. I still have almost 2 months to go before my dentist will make the final plate and need something to keep these temps from slipping that is safe to use. Anyone have any for sure gluten free adhesives that they use and can reccommend? It is so nice not to be in pain constantly anymore but when I smile my teeth slip which is almost as embarrassing as the mess that was in there before the work was done. :o

I googled :D Biotene is your pick!

http://www.oralcancerfoundation.org/produc...ts_products.htm

gluten and lactose free!

Read some terrible things about Poligrip- stay away from that stuff, for sure!

Thanks so much. The product is even good for folks with dry mouth which is great news as that is one thing that didn't resolve gluten-free. My docs always blamed the dry mouth on all the meds I was on but I have suspected for a long time that it was likely Sjogerns but don't want to bother having them test for it at this point. My dentist said that the dry mouth also contributed to the destruction of my teeth so it was nice to see some other products there specifically for it.

I have SO many teeth problems (many are missing from literally just crumbling out) and many have decay and cavities. I fear dentures. I have a horrible dentist phobia (well I have severe anxiety disorder, so I think it's really the problem). I'm on 31 :( (and no I've never been a drug user as two dentist assumed in my past :( ) I'm glad you were brave enough to fix your teeth problems! :)

I have had a dental phobia for years. What finally got me able to even call another one was a bit of therapy and an antianxiety med. It isnt easy but bad teeth can lead to bad issues elsewhere. Since I had one front tooth that was abcessed and I know that can spread to the brain I decided I just had to go. You might want to check into sedation dentistry if it is available in your area. Basically you go to sleep and you wake up and work is done.

I have to giggle at this subject - only how you talk about it...........lol

I've had dentures since I was 25 - same reason as you.

The best thing I EVER did for myself.

It took 2 visits.......upper first then the lowers

My gums healed and about a month or so later, I got my new smile.

Keep your lips stretched........or you'll walk around with all teeth and no lip as it will relax from not being stretched over teeth.

Use an emery board to smooth out an uncomfortable spot......tight - lump - pressure.......etc.

Do not assume you can eat a steak! lol

You need to learn how to chew with a mouth full of plastic.....and you will bite your cheek and tongue because your new teeth will not feel.

I highly recommend Fixodent! I am not fond of the type with scope in it - but do prefer the plain.

Less is more......More is a mess.

Your bond will be the best bond you've ever had - the other ones don't work nearly as well.

You'll try to yank your teeth out and they won't come out.........until the seal is worn out.

I even wrote the company and they wanted to my doctor to inquire....don't understand that one, but hey, I don't get a reaction.......and I only use the plain.

I also had to have my upper teeth pulled, the lower one's are holding steady for some reason and I still have them. I had to be put out when I had mine pulled also. One for the fear of the dentist the other because my head shake's and they can not work on me when I cant hold still. But I do not use any thing to hold my teeth in. But the thing that drives me nuts the most about them is getting food under them. But I eat almost every thing I want even corn on the cob. Also I use Equate denture cleaner on them. But I dont use it every day, but I do put them in mouth wash and water every night.
