    Kathy,

    Yes, I do sleep with them. When I had surgery in February of this year, I begged the anaesthetist, that I could keep my dentures in, he said only if they are in tightly, they were, so I did not have to take them out for the surgery.
    At night I brush my teeth and leave the dentures in, in the morning I take them out to brush them inside and out, takes about two minutes and I put them back in.
    Good luck and don't be embarresed.

    Debbie

My teeth also crumble, i can't eat anything without some pain, and my dentist is talking me about doing some things, but they are all so expensive. And like pandagirl said, it is so important that we keep away any infections. So, lady, go get yourself some pearly whites, and come around and brag to us about the "new you".
    Thanx! Phyliss! I actually have a new cut, so maybe new teeth will make me even hotter! just playing! hugs my friend hope ur well! Kathy

I have to get 4 rootcanals, so they can put brackets on them for the dentures. 5,000! I have to do it a tiny piece at a time. I have rootcanal today. uck... ok. Sorry about my rant! Hugs kathy
    I am not as young as you but I am looking into partials because I am losing my teeth for the same reasons you are. I understand the embaressment you feel. My Mother who is in her 70's is always asking me if I am losing my teeth and it embarasses me. So I get how you feel.
