Having such a hard time with this. It's painful, but I know it just happened. Emotionally, I'm just not doing real well. I feel like I'll never eat or speak normally again. Just a shock. The story is that my front teeth (I've always had great teeth and took very good care of them) suddanly started to seperate. I decided finally that I was in a financial position that I would want to get braces to fix it. Well I go in and have my xrays and it turns out that even though I still have all of my teeth, I have major bone loss due to infections below the gums and they all have to come out. I had never even noticed how loose my teeth were until it was pointed out. So today was the day. I have an amazing Dr. The teeth look great. But I'm just having a hard time coping. Did anyone else go through this?
