I am having all uppers and all but three lowers pulled on Tuesday. I am having an immediate. denture made by a prostodontist. I am terrified. I have severe gum disease that I have had treated in the past, but they are really bad now! I'm sure they are infected. Bleed whenever I brush. I can't wait to get them out, but am worried about the oral surgery and recovery. I am a professional. Admissions director at a private school. I talk a lot in my job! I am taking almost 2 weeks off. I hope that will be enough, I need helpful encouragement!
