Getting extractions in a few days!!

I'm in my early 40s and am having 12 teeth removed (I finally said it out loud) and then partials.  I had 6 root canals two weeks ago and 2 of those broke yesterday.   Feeling a bit stressed, a little down but yet still trying to remain positive.  My smile didn't start to go to H*** until my 30s.  I recently found out that I'm highly deficient in calcium and vitamin d.  I'm so nervous about this surgery but praying that I will end up wanting to smile again.   Ive been so ashamed that I refuse to discuss my dental journey with my partner or anyone for that matter.   She is in her 30s and have perfect teeth. I know it's my own insecurities but I'm glad I found a platform where others are going through or have been through the same thing.   Wish me luck!

The way I look at it is that soon enough it will just be an unpleasant experience in the rear view mirror.  It’s not nearly as bad as you are probably imagining.
