I took my 81 year old father to get full dentures today. He had gauze in his mouth from old tooth extractions. When we got home he pulled out the gauze and flushed it down the toilet. Then we realized the bottom denture had come out with the gauze and was flushed too! So he had new dentures for about 30 minutes before accidentally flushing the lower ones! Thought you all would enjoy that story. But anyway, it will be about 2 to 3 weeks before they can get him a new lower denture, so he's going around with no bottom teeth. I just feel so bad for him. I got him lots of soft food, and I guess we just have to deal with it. Any suggestions or amusing stories or thoughts that might help me get him through the next few weeks with no bottom teeth?
