    Other Care

    All of my teeth (22 & 4 implants) were removed on 1/15/14. Healing seems to be progressing OK and two posts are scheduled to be installed on the bottom jaw (front) in about one month. About 1 1/2 months later impressions will be taken and about 6-8 weeks later dentures will be fitted. I MIGHT have "teeth" again around June. The whole experience is one I could have done without...vanity I guess. Oh well, the gift that keeps on giving is still giving
