I'm 56 and in a bit over 3 weeks, I'm getting all my teeth extracted and immediate dentures. I'm going to the Smile Center in Buffalo, NY. My teeth don't look too bad, though I'd like them to be whiter (that'll be for the permanent dentures for sure), but I have front cap which will never look anything other than a cap. 3 broken teeth in the back, 8 loose teeth, 3 crowns (one has a big cavity under it) and too many fillings to count. I could do all the appointments to have them fixed, but I've hit the wall when it comes to the grinding, drilling and scraping of my teeth. So, I've elected to have the teeth pulled and go to full dentures. I should be nervous, I suppose, but I'm looking forward to getting it done. Sooner it's done, the sooner the healing can begin and I can get my permanent dentures. Am I being nuts for this attitude? I'm being put out during the extractions, so that's not an issue. Just joined, but feel I'll be back a lot.
