having spent more than a year with my teeth being loose and feeling at times self-conscious and embarrassed… I felt I had to put my hand in front of my mouth before I smiled. Having my teeth removed and replaced with dentures, in the long run, for me and for my condition, was great. I can eat, I can talk, I can whistle. There’s nothing I cannot do with my dentures. So, looking back and with hindsight, and having worn dentures now for almost 4 years, I’m happy.
