False Teeth Pain & Discomfort
Posted by cherokeemoon to Dental, Jun 11, 2010 9:11am
I would like to see a show on this embaressing topic. I lost all my teeth do to long term use of prednisone and am now forced to wear false teeth that hurt so bad they make me cry after only a few minutes. I know many women who suffer from Lupus, Fibromyalgia and other chronic illnesses have also lost their teeth from the meds. and dry mouth. Our bodies completely change from all these meds we take, our self esteem plumets to such a low level and when we have to deal with the loss of something as important as our teeth it hurts, physically and emotionally. Living solely on disability I don't have the luxury of cosmetic implants so what can I do? I look 30 yrs older without my teeth but the pain is unbearable to wear them HELP!!!
