10 years with dentures(got them at 22) Still going strong! PICS!

Hey guys! I have been apart of this site since way back in 2011 ish when I got my uppers EXTd for an upper plate. I was around 22-23, Im 33 now!! 

 I was given a temporary denture that lasted be 4-5 years or so because I was young and didnt know of a final denture at the time. I later had to have my remaining bottom teeth EXTd and was given a lower denture when I was about 27-28. At this time, they gave me an entire new complete final set.

Funnily enough, I became a Dental Assistant at that same practice for almost 2 years! I assisted in procedures, extractions/fillings/root canals and yes, even dentures. I loved talking to patients about my experience with dentures! 

I recently got my second final set back in August, just for aesthetic purposes. I worked directly with our Prosthodontist and he crafted a fabulous new set for me. So, about 10 years with dentures, still going strong and can eat almost anything I'd like! 

I wear both my new aesthetic set and my old one. The new one is Phonares 2 and both are in the whitest shades!

How cool to be working on the other side and can help patients with their transitions to dentures, and other dental procedures.  And great that you're doing so well 10 years in.  Thanks for sharing your experience!

Thanks Abby! Ive actually quit the dental field to finish up my Bachelors in Animation and I was also invited to be a Professor of Character Design for the program, however I probably will temp or sub as a DA at some point!
