It has been a long haul, to say the least. When the dentist started pulling my teeth in early October or the end of sept he expected me to have the dentures no later than mid december. It's what, early march? Not his fault by any means. I tried to explain to him that due to the kidney issues I tend to heal slower than your average person, often much slower. I don't think he quite understood that. Now he does, but not when this all started. Then of course I got that horrid virus that had me down for the count for a month or more on top of it. For the past many weeks we've finally been doing the molds. The past like 5 we've been doing the wax molds. Dentist is a perfectionist, knows his stuff, and I'm certainly not going to argue as he's not charging extra for this part. Bit of a pain to go in every single week for a 10 -15 min appointment to see if they got the teeth lined up correctly, positioned correctly.........but after seeing them finally right this morning......sooooooo worth it. He popped them in to see how they looked and husband blurted out OMG there is my wife. I decided to take it as a good thing.........instead of kicking him. lol Dentist was very pleased as he Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) type checked everything yet again. When he handed me the mirror I understood husband's reaction. I was like OMG I am ME again. And even though dentist checked them out completely. He had me sit there with them in for like a half hour with this long checklist and a mirror of things I was to try and look for to make certain that I like them, they were comfy ect. I get the real deal on tues. , < this will be my huge smile lol I get to try them out for a few days then go back in to tell him what I think of them ect, see if anything needs to be fixed. This guy is so unbelievably sweet and so tell you exactly like it is and make sure you understand......it's a pleasure to go in for an appointment, even if the travel to get there and back is a pain. Once I get my new teeth on tues, I have to spent about a week learning to talk again. Guessing so I don't spit them out saying certain letters or whistle when I talk. lol And the next week learning to actually eat with them. This is normal. This depends on the person, but in other words you don't just stick them in and use them like your normal ones. Makes sense but not something I actually thought about before. I'm so excited! I told husband that I'm going to find someplace that actually will cut my hair in the style I'd like to have it in and I'm going shopping with Nichole on sat for a couple new outfits. Woot I'm going to feel like a brand new person. Yay me!
