The Joy of replacing real Teeth with Dentures

The Joy of replacing real teeth with these - Partial Dentures

While the joy of replacing real teeth with dentures might not be the most interesting topic on the face of the planet to read about here, it’s a reality that’s crept up on me and now has to be dealt with, so you might as well share part of the joy of that adventure with me.

Well, to tell you the truth the word joy might not be the best one to use to describe the actual experience of it, but since that’s what the title says we might as well run with it.

When the odd seriously bad toothache snuck up and bit me in the mouth over the years my usual response was to plunk myself into a dentist’s chair to get the offender yanked from my mouth as quickly as possible.

That technique worked well over the years, until I realized one day that I didn’t have too many of the serious chewers left anymore to help me properly process the foods I was used to eating.

Hence the recent visits back to that dentist’s chair for a proper assessment of the situation, and the verdict that some partial dentures would definitely be in order if I hoped to enjoy the rest of my life with food still left as a factor in the future equations of enjoying it.

Next comes the visit to the dental surgeon who’s going to yank the last useless ones from their clamp on my jawbone, allowing them to make the proper impressions to fill up all those empty spaces.

To tell you the truth I’m kind of looking forward to it, just so I’ll have the joy of knowing what a complete mouth full of teeth feels like again. And having said that, there you go – I knew if I worked at it long enough I’d be able to figure out a way to associate the word joy with this experience!

So when it comes time for you to experience the joy of replacing real teeth with dentures take heart – there is an upside of joy to the experience after all.


  1. Having just gone through the procedure myself, I am left with a complete set. My uppers hug my mouth like a wayward child found, but the bottoms are definately needing some adjustment, which means some pain and discomfort. Good luck with yours.

    • Thanks for the good wishes on my upcoming dentures…I’m looking forward to finally having a good chew when it’s all said and done (I hope :-)…best wishes with your adjustments there too.
