Before; I'd either purchase at a Walmart or drug store or obtain free samples from your Dentist of FIXODENT. It may come in handy for after the extractions to hold Immediate in for 8 to 12 weeks, until the Immediate is relined to fit better.

Also, I'd ascertain that you have Advil or Tylenol, and likely a prescription strength pain medication from your Dentist, again to be used after the extractions if needed.

After; Be prepared for some less than perfect situations. All I mean by that is 'adaption' . Adaption to a new set of teeth that will likely feel somewhat different, for a couple weeks anyway. And not fully functional until after the reline about 3 months out post-extraction time. Swish gingerly with warm water several times a day. Some prefer mouthwash, if so use non-alcoholic preferentially.

Other than the above, I think you'll LIKELY be in shape!

All the best to you...

Dr. Rampton

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
