Hi everyone, my name is Lisa and I've been reading through your message boards and feeling a lot better about what's coming. I do have a question about how some of you went through the extraction process. I have 17 teeth left. I've had up to 3 pulled at once (local Novocain), but just three put me on my butt for a full day afterwards. I can't imagine getting all of them pulled at once, with a denture mashed up there to hold in the blood. I think I'd rather have my teeth pulled in stages. Three or four at a time at most. I mean, I'm going to Affordable Dentures and you have to pay for each extraction individually anyway, so why not stretch it out? Or is there a big advantage to having them all extracted at once?
