Dentures and the roof of my mouth

I know your fear. I am facing having 10 upper teeth pulled and an immediate upper denture. I have had the impressions made and was supposed to have went last sat for the e day, but I freaked out and cancelled it. My MAIN worry is the feeling of something covering the rood of my mouth. We who have had bad teeth know what extractions are and feel like. How having a painful ass abcess is. What happened was I had a small hole in my front tooth, and he fixed it...yeah...well now I have an abcess in the front tooth behind my nose. I have loose teeth...a partial is not an option...so he said a denture is the best option. When the technician came to do the impression , she was like "im so sorry about the new" like I was dying! Why didn't she say WOW you are getting a new smile or something positive...so I was scared to death....I was sick emotionally the entire weekend...so I call them to put a hold on everything.....I have seen a lot of positives on youtube...but how do you get used to the thing on the roof of the mouth??? Is that difficult?? eventually do you not notice it?? HELP

Consider the alternative, my friend.  You need to think of what the positives are.  I wasn't totally pleased with the feel of my dentures at first, but I had worn braces as a pre-teen and had a "retainer" which covered the roof of my mouth when the braces came off.  If you want to have a nice smile sometime in the near future, you have to go through what it takes to get there.  Keep the faith and don't give up.
