Do teeth feel "weaker" after braces are removed? If so, for how long? Braces removed from mandibular premolars to premolars. Teeth don't feel natural
Motrin + Tylenol (acetaminophen): If you want an over the counter regimen, i like 3 x Motrin 200mg (600mg total) every 8 hours combined with extra strength tylenol (acetaminophen) (500mg). Studies have shown the combination is much stronger than taking the medication individually. However please inform your dentist as there may be other drug interactions. Additionally i like to ice the areas immediately after surgery to lessen the swelling. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Immediate denture: It sounds like you were given what we call an immediate denture.

The teeth can also often be replaced in the office the same day or better yet in a laboratory where you may be without it for a short time. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hello I recently had two teeth extracted and immediate denture placed it's been over 72 hours and one if the teeth gas yellow smelly pus help please?
Infection or normal?: A follow-up appointment at this point is a good idea. Call your provider (if you haven't yet), and review with her or him what you are experiencing. It's important to heal, and things need to continually improve for this to happen. Foul odor at the surgery site is not usually part of that. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

18 teeth extracted one week ago gums are swollen sires from dentures ib prophen don't work, fever and sore throat started today. What should I do?
See you dentist: Hi Billy! Your denture should start feeling better after a week or so. It's not uncommon for a denture to be adjusted multiple times after you have had your teeth out. The bone and gum tissue will eventually heal and shrink. At this point you will need to relign the denture so it fits your mouth properly. Usually a few months after receiving the denture. Best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How good should dentures fit? My friend recently had an upper denture fitted. It's been two weeks and he still gags when wearing them plus they frequently fall down. He also still has a hole in his upper jaw from tooth extraction which allows liquid to
Well, : Well, your friend has a few problems. Firstly, he needs to go back to the dentist to take care of the oronasal communication. This cannot stay this way and may need to be surgically repaired. He may be gagging for a number of reasons: the back of the denture may be a bit too long, or he just needs a little time to get use to it. With the denture moving and falling he will have a very hard time being comfortable. With the oronasal communication, there will be no way to establish suction to hold the denture in place. That needs to be addressed first, then when that has healed, the denture can be modified to be more comfortable. Hope this info helps. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

My teeth have all fallen out but the roots are still there. Can i get the roots extracted and get dentures?
No: My collegue is correct. Alveolar bone is that part of the jawbone that surrounds and supports the teeth. When a tooth is lost, there is no need for alveolar bone and over time, it resorbs. In addition, the pressure of dentures causes even more bone loss! so it's a double whammy! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

If a tooth is extracted and not replaced, the face will slowly change in a few years. Will (partial dentures), prevent my face from changing?
Dentures some help: While i agree that dentures can help maintain muscle tone resulting in a fuller looking face, extracting teeth and subsequent loss of the tooth socket and surrounding boney contour and outer eminence can give an indented gaunt look to ones face. If finances were not a concern, virtually no one in 2014 would be getting dentures or even bridgework they would be getting dental implants! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
