Oh my God I get it. I had 3 teeth removed and 2 of them were impacted. I am so afraid of the dentist that I was referred to an oral surgeon so I could get put out in the hospital. The hospital did not call me so I had no choice but to get it done in his office. Well, I was shocked. Getting frozen is never fun but I got through it and felt nothing when the teeth were pulled. I then had an immediate flipper put in. You just might surprise yourself! Oh yes, there was very little pain after as well. Nothing a couple Advil didn't take away.

Hi Sue, the anxiety of waiting to have it done was actually worse than having the extractions and then having to adjust to eating and getting used to the dentures.  If you can keep yourself busy before the extractions are done, and have got all your pain meds and soft foods, drinks organized, then you'll be one step closer to be prepared.  Try and think positively, as to why you are getting the dentures in the first place.  No more tooth pain, expensive dental visits, no more not being able to smile, etc.  When you get your immediate dentures, yes it is a long road to recovery, but for me and some others, it was totally worth it.  Hope you are going to be one of those people too.  All the best.

Hi, I agree with this comment and advice. I just had 14 teeth extracted and am still adjusting to the immediate denture. TBH I am still feeling regret, but I really had no better option, implants are soo expensive and didn't want to put that kind of money out. We will persevere.
