Dani,
Sounds like a great start to the week!!!

I am probably going to ask a stupid question, but what is bar placement? Probably when you tell me I'll be banging my head against the wall for feeling so ignorant!! :-)

Hugs,

     Hello!

  Just got back from the dentist. Apparently my hardware (implant dent pegs) will not be placed for a few months. I was given my teeth to will wear until the swelling and changes are done. Really very beautiful even thou they are temporary.  The thought of more pain in face was a little frightning. So *pew* no more major mouth stuff for a few months until swelling and jaw changes are done. But have to go in once a week for them to care for sores and sockets. And speaking of sockets, they took everything out, in one procedure, instead of two. So very cool wont ever have to experience that ever again.  The pain aspect isnt too bad, thou cerrtianly unique type of pain.

     I am having a hard time re learning to speak and eat, but making progress. I only need to use tthe note pad occasionally today.

     Looks like I am all set for my spine procedure this friday. So far so good  :-)   

    *warm huggs*

           dani

 Oh, umm PA ~ Need bars on bottom as that is a hard area to "set"? I dont ask too many questions, but apparently the lower jaw is a bit tricky when comes to implant retained "full sets". the rest of my "implant process" will happen in "stages" over the next 3 to 4 months.

   P A Lady,
 
     I think this will help. I get the impression that if it is just single tooth it can be done in one surgical. Same time as grafts. *shruggs*

Thanks, Dani!

I'll check out that link. I got the impression from my "good" dentist (should just call him my angel) that when they do the extraction they put in the bone graft, but I'm wondering if there's a little wait time for swelling to go down or other healing? I've had full mouth gum surgery and that was painful. This couldn't possibly match that for one tooth! LOL

Then he said I had to wait 6 months and if the graft took I'd get the implant (I take it that's the post/metal part) and then would have to wait another 3 months and go to a general dentist for the crown. So all in all, it'll be next spring/early summer before this is over - if all goes according to plan. Then again, why would any of us think our lives would go according to plan???? LOL

It sounds like you've made a huge step forward. If I'm reading correctly you have sort of a set of temporaries? If so, how does it feel to look in the mirror and smile?

I'm so happy for you that this is moving forward!!!!

Hugs,

PaLady

Dani,
I'm sorry that I missed your post. I haven't really sat down at the comp for the last couple of days. But I'm very glad that you got some temps to have in the meantime. I know what a relief it was the first time that I remembered that I could actually smile and didn't have to practice the Mona Lisa move.

Hope to hear that you're grinning on a regular basis...

Dani, I have been on the road and wanted to say I hope that the Friday procedure goes well and that you continue to see lessening of the pain from the oral surgery. Keep smiling as you enjoy the new look and soon it will be permanent. Blessings

Hi Dani:
 
I just wanated to add that I think you are amazing - I watched my Mother go through dental implants one tooth at a time, and she was miserable!  I can't imagine going through all that you have been through. 
 
You are such an asset to this sight as you are always there with an encouraging word when we need you, despite what you are dealing with yourself.
 
I just got my partial dentures, and I cried when I saw them for the first time, I can't even imagine what it would be like to have the implants - I wish that I could have afforded a few in the front, but I just couldn't at this time.
 
I hope that things continue to go well and that you are finished soon

     Thank you all so much! Makes my heart smile so much when I read your replies!

  I go to the dentist today to have sore and stuff looked at. When I heal is whhen the next phase beings. So lets keep our fingers crossed that I heal quickly! So far thou my mouth make "sockets" the first day, and over half of my mouth is returning to the "light pink" color. Could be good news, will find out more this afternoon.

     On a side note. I took out my "temp teeth" for first time. I wasnt prepared for that atall. I mean yes, of course it hurt.. But. How do I explain? The look, the feel the everything was almost too much. I nearly fainted and became very sick to my stomach. You know, mentally. I wasnt prepared for that atall. I got frightened and began to cry, i remember my husband rushing in and holding me til i was done crying. Then I went to sleep. I wasnt expecting that atall. Now though! It is okay. Ive taken them off and cleaned my suters without any "scary feelings". I knew it was going to be a long hard process, but my goodness this is alot harder than I imagined. 

*warm huggs*

Dani,
I can only imagine how that must feel like a shock to the system - physically and psychologically! You have been through so much with this, I do hope you heal quickly (pink gums are good, at least according to my periodontist - means blood supply is getting through) so you can move forward. Please feel free to keep sharing with us all your feelings as you go through this. But we'll be celebrating with you at the end!

Hugs!

   Okay, holy cow what a visit!

   I am healing fast. They are pleased. Yes, PA, they said exact same thing you did, literally. When I asked how long before we could place my pegs.... I was given a look of confusion. and told "No you are done now." I became instantly frightened. When we went to the front, the ladies at reception seemed to think I was indeed getting peggs, but only getting peggs on the bottom? This worries me a great deal. I have already paid a grotesque amount of money. I spent months saving every penny we had and paid well in advance of any work being done. We had decided to go with a "Mimi implant system" as it was a cheaper option, but also, would help to keep my jaw "Healthy". More so than "regular dentures". So I am very confused. I see the oral surgeon on monday to have the black strings removed. I will enquire more then, but honestly I am a little freaked out because....

 1. I was sure we had gone over every detail and I was to get "mimi implant system by astra tech"

2. I couldnt pull more money if my life depended on it.

     Not that I dont think my teeth and everything are georgous (I did get to see the final ones weeks ago), it  is just that I was under the impression that a few pegs would be placed on top and on bottom to secure the teeth and promote bone / jaw stregenth. Very worried and confused, thou the recpetionist seemed just as confused. AARRGGHH! So, hopefully will get the answers I need on monday. Im pretty concerned. Okay very concerned. I know recpetion has mixed things up a few times now. I PRAY that is the case again. Be honest guys im pretty frightened, I need this done right the firstt ime. God knows I've paid dearly.

    !! touch of good news!! the pink gums were a good indicator and my permanant bottom ones go in in 3 weeks, Sept 21st.  On monday though of next week I will tlak to surgeon about whats really goin on with the top half. My reg dentist's reception just told me 6months till placement, but the oral surgeon told me a few weeks ago that it would only be 4months for the top. Because of the type "mini implant"? And then went over the pros and cons of going with the mini implant system. vs reg dentures. Goodness I am so worried.

     I can have soda pop finally... thou it tastes very differant and kinda gross. In fact I dont have a desire to drink it atall now. Who knew??  rolleyes    Also, I was told to take my temporary out before my procedure on spine tomorrow? Because I am put under anesthesia??? I dont really understand that. And Gosh, I really didnt want anyone to see me with my winston churchill face  shakehead  

   Gosh I sure do wish things would settle down already. Sorry my vent is so long and ... scattered. Didnt mean to ramble so much! My mind is fogged a bit with the medicines  smhair    

 

*warm huggs*

Dani,
Perhaps you're done with a certain part of the procedure, but maybe not done with others? I'm glad you don't have to wait long to see the oral surgeon. Be prepared to be assertive and ask all the questions you have until you feel you understand. Write them down on Sunday so you have them in hand, and tell them you've paid a lot of money and what you thought you paid it for. You deserve answers! What is with these dentists!! We have enough trouble with doctors, now we have dentists screwing with us?!

about tomorrow - it's possible because you're having anesthesia something may be placed in your mouth. Or the mouth may need to be available to place a tube down in an emergency situation. And they may not want your teeth jossled around. Try not to worry about the staff seeing you; they're medical people and are used to concentrating on many other things. Try and relax a bit if you can!

Hugs,

PaLady

Don't you just hate it when you think you understand what's happening only to be messed around by receptionists??? I really hope the oral surgeon has given you the correct info and you're well on track for the perfect mouth solution. We don't have dental cover and I dread going to the dentist because of it. My son needs braces so I will have to face it soon before he grows...such is life. But I have my fingers crossed for Monday that all will be well for you...golitho.
