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 more

What about smoking after a full all teeth extraction and dentures ? I know its a horrible question but I wonder how that changes things or what happen

What about smoking after a full all teeth extraction and dentures ? I know its a horrible question but I wonder how that changes things or what happen

As I'm Sure: Your dentist told you, smoking can cause bleeding so no smoking at all for the first day. Then try to keep it to a minimum. Avoid "sucking" on the cigarette, as you might dislodge the clot and cause more bleeding. There are few things you can do which would be as good for your future health as quitting. ...Read more
