I've heard of dentures of course....and implants...but never "implanted dentures"....please enlighten me.....I'm very interested.  I didn't have my teeth pulled for rads, but I did get them out years ago...

I'll bet they look totally WONDERFUL, Matt!!  Gawd, it's nice to hear from you!

Hello Matt !

I had 24 extracted 1 hr. prior to my neck dissection.  Insurance deductible was met, but in less than a month it would have bite me in the rear end.  Yeah kinda a sucker for punishment but I figured I was gonna be in pain anyway.  I've had both plates now for 9 months.....and yeah there very nice.  I still have issues with lymphedema and numbness in cheeks, jaw and neck.  So more than not my new teeth don't work real well.  Go slow with them, I've been told our gums will toughen up eventually.  (sore spots ect.)  Boy that ENT I have loves it when I can pop 'em out so he can feel everywhere for issues on my jaw and under it.  About as fun as having the tube down the nose.  Wishing you much success with the new choppers Matt !   Katie

Matt,

 

Nice to hear from you, I am glad you are well.

 

I never had any teeth issues, but my teeth don’t come together quite the same any more.

 

Good luck with the teeth and keep getting better.

 

Best,

 

Matt

Hi. I completed treated for stage III SCC of left tonsil in September. I am currently using a temporary denture and I am about 4 weeks away from getting my permanent implanted dentures.   So, I am sorry I cannot offer any advice. I know that with the temporary dentures I cannot eat because it blocks what little saliva I have and they move around too much.  So, I am looking forward to the implanted dentures.  I wish you luck because at least for me, losing my teeth has to be the hardest part of this long journey.  I am glad I have the temps because I am back to work and at least I can go out in public. Let me know how you do with your new teeth. Good luck!

Lori

I have temporary dentures and start the hyper baric chamber next week before I have 4 more teeth pulled and implants to attach a denture to. That was all supposed to happen last November but the jourey just keeps going on and on and on. I hope your teeth work well for you.
