24yrs old getting full extraction and immediate dentures what should I expect?
I am 24 year old female who only just had my FIRST cavity at 20. Somehow my teeth have begun to crack ane break off and fallbout. Kinda like those nightmares you have when you start spitting out your teeth or the fall out in fhw sink? My worst nightmare has become my reality. I have went to several dentist and denture places. One place told me they'd have to pull ALL OF THEM snd then they would put the top and bottome dentures in immediately after the surgery costing about 7 grand with 5 year warranty with adjustment. The other place (aspen) told me they could do two implant on each side top and bottom and then have a partial or denture to fit into or arohnd it. But with them i would have to do all this extra stuff whoch isn't nessicary and ridiculous and would cost over 20 grand (including insurance) I'm just so scared and I feel like it's nit fair. I'm 24 yeats old and should be having the peak of my life living it up going out and doing stuff with friends and now I have isolated myslef and just go to work and go straight home I don't talk and definitely never smile when i talk i have yo be conscious on how I am talking and if they can see them. I am scared to have all my teeth removed. I feel like I don't have all the facts or know my options. I just don't want to be in pain anymore, I want to smile and talk again and feel like a human being and be able to go out with my family and not have to miss holidays because I'm too self conscious. Can someone ANYONE PLEASE help me please! Any advice, direction or stories would help me more than you know. I have no one to talk to that understands. I just need some direction on what I should do. Are there other options other than just taking them all out and getting dentures? What is it like afyer surgeey? Does it hurt to wear them? Can people tell I have them? What dentist should i be talking to?
