Getting New Dentures?

I was wondering; when you're getting your mouth prepared for dentures, what do they do? I'm starting with the top, first. So, when all these are removed. Won't the bottom, irritate the top?

This is a question that you should ask at your dentist's office as they should have brochures containing instructions on prep procedures.
If you have already seen your dentist and have an appointment to have your upper teeth removed then your dentist will have already ordered a 'temporary/immediate mold" that will be made from your mouth before teeth are extracted.
You will need to wear this mold until your regular dentures are made which could be weeks/months but your dentist should give you an approximate date. This set will help protect your gums and also help you adjust to wearing and caring for dentures.

Immediate/temporary dentures will not fit as well as your regular dentures but will still be helpful during this healing process.

Call your dentist and ask about any medications you currently take and if you should stop taking any of these before the procedure and ask about OTC meds like vitamins and calcium as some want these stopped 2-3 days before the appointment.

Mos dentists will request you have someone with you that can drive you home after the procedure is completed.
Fasting is usually required so check on this also.
No smoking on day of procedure - none.
Take any antibiotics the dentist gives you - just the way they state to take them.

Get to know your dentist's helpers so you will feel comfortable asking them questions as this is a long process and you will have questions.

I agee with all the above. When you have your top teeth extracted, you will have already had impressions, fitted and had your top denture all made; so that when your teeth are extracted, your dentist will put your new denture imediately in. During which time your mouth will be healing. You will be returning to your dentist a few times for adjustments! Your dentist should be telling you all this step by step! Best of luck!

Your mouth gets measured first. From what I understand, there is an adjustment period of about a month.

Your dentist is the best person to answer your questions.

Normally after they extract the teeth on the top they should give you temporary dentures to use. There will always be an adjustment period no matter what. I would read this article so that you can understand what to expect when you get your new dentures. www.mydenturecare.com/.../

If you have a appointment, they will explain the procedure and any questions you have. Every office goes about things slightly different. Do contact your office to be prepared!

There are a lot of videos that show the prep (I personally cannot bear to watch them as dental things and I are not on the best of terms), but I have watched videos of other procedures I have had and found them quite helpful.

If this one is not helpful, there are dozens of them on YouTube and some dental sites.

Everyone's experiences are different so what happens to one person may not happen to another or vice versa. I would hate to say something that happened to someone I know or even my own experiences if your situation is totally different than mine.

Two things I am comfortable telling you are to tell your dental provider all medications, including over the counter meds/vitamins/supplements and even topical things you use BEFORE they start anything.

If you vape or smoke or use any tobacco or tobacco like products DON'T during this process.

I would ask your dental provider or his/her assistant to answer questions based on your history and the meds you take and your personal situation. They are there for you!!

Wishing you an easy transition into this process!! Prayers and blessings!!
