you are Gorgeous .
I’ve never commented before but please don’t worry about the haters. You
are a beautiful person whose courage and humility inspires and has touched
so many ppl. I had problems with my teeth all my life and for a long time I
felt alone until I came across your videos 3 years ago. I mean I had
support from family and friends, and that meant a lot, but know one truly
understood what I was going through.Your videos gave me the support I
needed to get through my dental treatment, helped me regain my self-esteem,
and the courage to share my own story. It’s been a long journey, but today
I am confident and proud to tell my story. I even went back to school and
became a dental assistant. I wanted to find a way to turn the pain into a
gain and help others take back their oral health and their lives! From one
comeback kid to another, thank you for sharing and God bless!
What percentage of Americans would you say have dentures? Because I just
thought they kept their teeth amazing. Your teeth look lovely by the way.
Is it a painful process?
I’m sorry but I have to comment and be honest here. Some of what I say will
certainly rub some people the wrong way. I grew up with an uncle who was a
denturist. I worked for him for years and helped him in fabricating
dentures. He taught me a lot. I don’t think you are wrong in what you say,
I just think you don’t understand a lot about the long term consequences of
your decision to get dentures. i understand when people have bad teeth they
would like to get dentures and have a nice smile, what they fail to
understand is all the underlying issues that only come to light a few or
more years down the road. You’r teeth and surrounding tissue…bone
structure etc make up the shape of your face and what you look like. Having
them removed changes things long term. If you must get a denture get a top,
save your bottom teeth at all cost. Implants in your lower jaw will stop
the resorption for awhile but they will eventually have to come out.
Implants are not the “save all” they were once professed to be. They have a
limited life. eventually you are looking at resorption whether you want to
or not. When that happens you start getting that “tiny lower jaw” look. I
can spot any denture wearer 10 miles away who has a top and a bottom. In 5
years a person looks like theyve aged 10 years, in 10 years they look
almost 20 years older. SAVE YOUR BOTTOM TEETH PEOPLE. Do not listen to
people telling you full dentures are a good idea, they arent. With a well
made top denture made to match your bottom teeth color wise and shape wise
no one will even know. I’ve seen the same scenerio played out over and over
again. It happens to “everyone” who loses their bottom teeth. Implants are
bullshit and require constant maintenance and money to fix the damn things
anyway, costing as much or more than to fix your bottom teeth….keep them.
I don’t think any of these “New denture wearers” making videos on youtube
are trying to mislead anyone or giving false information. I just dont think
they understand the long term consequences. And of course they don’t, they
haven’t had their dentures long enough to fully understand yet even though
they think they do. Once your face starts sinking in, it’s hard for the
denturist to get you to look they way you should again….even with just a
top denture. You have to be diligent and really take charge with a
denturist and learn the difference between a denturist….who is also and
artist….and a denture tech….who will stick any blocky looking peg teeth
in your mouth. I’m fortunate to know the difference. I have a custom made
top plate with 6 porcelain front teeth and plastic back molars so I don’t
wear down my real bottom teeth. Its perfectly matched color wise and tooth
shape as well to my bottom teeth. Be very careful in choosing a denturist.
Don’t let a dentist do it, even if you have to go out of state find a good
I can’t thank you enough for makin all these videos.. I have been wanting
to go back and start from the beginning because I am 44 and am at the point
you were when you began. I’ve had trouble with my teeth all my life, (bad
teeth run in the family) I”ve spent thousands over the years to try and
save them. I then got sick when I was 20 and in the last 12 yrs I lost my
ability to swallow 90% of solid foods and that brought on malnutrition
which have completely rotted my teeth. I’ve lost most of them and what is
left is broken.. So my husband and I are trying to save the money, (we are
both disabled and on a fixed income) to begin dental work. I’ve been told I
am not a candidate for implants and will most likely end up with full
dentures but its going to cost almost 6 thousand dollars and we don’t even
have a savings account so for me it’s going to be quite a while before I
can begin.. So again, I can’t thank you enough for these videos…You are a
very brave young woman who strength radiates to the rest of us.. Thank you
so so much for these videos.. And by the way, you look absolutely
Ok I just was wondering if when they first put your bridge in did your gums
bleed? Mine have been when I brush..
Wow! You look positively beautiful! I just got my all on 7 implants done
… top and bottom! I hope I look as stunning as you after they finish
fitting the crowns!
Kali I am so glad to hear you are looking so great and happy with your
implant restoration. You have been blessed with competent dentists and lab
technicians. I sincerely hope you have few if any problems with them in the
Thank you for sharing your story. ❤️
OMG!! A wig is the perfect comparison!! This is exactly how I am going to
explain dentures to my patients!! This is completely how I feel.. they are
definitely a situational reality.. and should never be a first term
solution.. wonderful kalinjax!
Love your videos! How often do you have to go in for cleanings with the all
I need dentures but I don’t think I need a full set, I don’t want all of my
teeth pulled ugh I need to get to the dentist asap before they just get
Got my dentures today, both full upper and partial lower. Dentist removed
my 4 last teeth from top and placed the dentures immediately, so I didn’t
had to be without teeth. These fit very good, even though eating and
talking is bit challenging. Its bit weird to have mouth full of teeth after
having just 4 upper teeth for some time. I’m just 25 and male. I have had
celiac disease since I was child, resulting bad teeth and because I don’t
drink milk. I should have used supplements, but oh well…
For the first time in my life I can smile once my remaining teeth are
fixed. Bottom teeth can be saved and I just needed partial.
Did you have bone grafts?
I just had all my uppers done a month ago and I’m still working on learning
how to eat and not choke. In 6-8 months I go in for the bottoms. My oral
surgen and I are discussing replacing my bottoms with all on two, which is
less expensive. Thanks to your videos I think I will be following his
advice! Thanks for all you do. You were a great help through all this
❤️ How wonderful you shared all you have been thru !! I’m so happy I saw
some of your videos today , I have peridontal disease on my upper gums and
saving my teeth will probably not be an option because of money … So I’m
just starting the process of ?? Maybe all my upper teeth being pulled and
getting dentures …. Not sure yet .. But I don’t have and dental insurance
and I am on SS Disability … So very limited income … On a journey now I
never expected . But … thank u again for sharing !! You are and look
Prosthodontist! Go see one before pulling your teeth!
thank you so much, you are great!! just keep letting your beautiful light
Hello, I am a little behind here. I started watching late. I now believe I
have seen them all. I deliberately set out to find just this type of video.
I am midway in the process at the ripe old age of 62. I am also a
Psychiatric RN. I agree with your philosophy, revealing does negate power.
No one can hurt us with that again. I appreciate u putting this on YouTube.
Something I could not do and thankfully I don’t have to. For those who
believe this is the easy way, if you only knew these decisions are made
only because we have to. Thank you and good luck!
You saved me!! If it wasn’t for you I would never have had the courage to
do this. I love my new teeth!! I love you too girl!
You look Beautiful!:)
I would like to thank you for all your videos. I’m 52 and getting my top
teeth extracted on Monday and my bottoms done 2 weeks later. Watching your
videos makes me feel so much better about going through this. I held on to
my teeth as long as I could and now have to move on to dentures. My
ultimate goal is to get the all on 4 like you. I have done a lot of
research and because of the high cost of implants in the US, I will have
the all on 4 done overseas. Thank you again and don’t let the haters bother
you, you are a beautiful intelligent and caring woman and I am sure that
you are admired by many people.
I am getting a full denture on top and a partial on the bottom. Getting my
first impressions tomorrow and will have what’s left of my top teeth
removed on the 16th of January and a immediate denture. So glad I found
your channel,I will be watching all your videos.
