Kyle, It's been suggested here to have a consult with an oral surgeon about this, but truly, in my office, we prefer that the patient see the ortho, have him take impressions for study models, xrays, etc and then send the patient to us, with the models, xrays, and any other info the ortho might want...

Will they give you some kind of prescription for pain? I like darvocet- I can still work when I'm taking it too, it doesn't make me dizzy or sleepy or anything. I hope you feel better! And really, truly, honestly, hydration makes a huge difference! I can tell if I've had enough to drink or not depen...

My husband hasn't exactly been supportive, but he hasn't - suprisingly - been as vocal about it as it sounds like yours has been. My husband usually is the one who wants to voice the pessimistic point of view, so I absolutely feel your pain. However, I have had ortho work done twice in the past, so ...

The only thing I haven't attempted to eat are those little square caramels. I've had popcorn, potato chips, steak, croutons, gummy bears, etc.

On a semi related note, do they call potato chips beef crips in the UK because they taste like beef? I hope that's not a silly question lol!

Hi Lola! I would assume the palate with teeth on it you're referring to is what we call a flipper- kinda like a retainer with teeth on it. If he is wearing one now, then after the implants are placed the dentist he is seeing should be able to either adjust the one he is currently wearing so he can c...
