    Idea

    I'm thinking of getting all my teeth removed and have full dentures top and bottom. I don't use them anymore and it would mean no toothache or brushing. What do you think? 😁x

    They can't take them all out at once so it might take a while. Stephen has no teeth at the top. Has dentures but doesn't wear them. Do you have all your teeth? I think having teeth might support your mouth more. Ellie might be able to come up with a suggestion. Can you email your dentist or doctor. 😬

      There is some logic in what you are thinking but there’s also something in the saying β€œif it ain’t broke don’t fix it β€œ

        That's just it. My teeth have moved as has my jaw so they are not aligned. I'm missing three teeth at the moment. Oh and I know it will involve more than one session. 😁x

          You would have to think about how you would deal with the blood. I understand why you're thinking like that but I'd get as much advice as possible first. πŸ€”

                Matthew there is a period of a few months before your gums settle before a fitting for a palate. You may find your jaw distorts during this period.
                I’m going to do this even if it kills me!

                  Are you going to bother with false teeth?

                        Worth asking your dentist, if you think having no teeth would make your day to day life easier.

                        You still need to clean dentures - no idea what that entails - and clean your oral cavity (for want of a better phrase 😁) to keep the lurgies from colonising.

                        Short term pain, for sure, but it might be worth it?

                        Sorry about your wonder brush xx
