Dentures----do you ever really get used to them?

    I don't have them yet.
    But who knows---might have to someday....

    I'm curious if they're easy to get accustomed to, or if they're a total nuisance all the time.

      I have had a partial(six teeth) since 2006. I am in no way used to them. I hate them, but I had no choice. Do everything you can to heal gingivitus! It is bad for your heart!

    I didn't think anyone got 'dentures' anymore.  Most dental surgeons make a lot more doing implants, crowns and bridges...something more permanent...and more expensive too of course.

    I used to have a partial denture for many years.  It was uncomfortable much of the time.  I had a bridge put in it's place a few years ago, and I've never looked back.  It looks and feels very solid and natural.

    If you have dental insurance that will cover any of the more permanent solutions, that would be the way to go.  Just my opinion of course.
