So glad I found this forum. I had 10 teeth pulled today, bone filing, stitches and my temporary upper denture put in today. I have a feeling I'm going to be here often for awhile

Hi Ruth, I am new o this site as well. How did your procedure go? Did you use sedation or did you have just local anesthesia? I am scheduled for upper dentures and extraction in July 2019. Hope you are taking something for the pain. Regards, Donna

Hi Donna, thanks for the comment. The procedure went pretty well. Especially considering alot of the horror stories I've read. I didn't need to be sedated. Lots of local anesthesia. Like I'm going to say 12 or more shots. I had 10 teeth pulled, bone surfacing and several stitches. And  then the temporary denture put in. Feels weird, but I'm not in pain. I haven't taken the pain pills as I don't care for them. Filled them just encase I need them. I'm just taking Ibuprofen so far and the antibiotics. And I got 3 steroids pills I'm suppose to take every 12 hrs. have taken one so far. But I go right back to work tomorrow, so to say I'm not concerned wouldn't be the truth. But I feel pretty good. The teeth look good. My face however looks weird, don't like looking in the mirror. Hope when the swelling goes down, I'll look more like myself. Also when I get the permanents which won't be for 6 mths

I am ecstatic to be further along than someone else for a change. Now I can start paying it forward and helping those who are newer to this. I am on Day 5. You already know about my issues. I did not like the pain pills, either. Like you, I've done the Ibu but on my schedule after the first 2 days. 

Every hour is a different scene --- how are you doing on Day 2?
