Scheduled 26 Extractions and Immediate Dentures, July 10th. What to expect??
I'm 43 yrs old and just scheduled my appointment for 26 extractions for July 10th. I will be getting immediate upper and lower dentures. I haven't smiled in almost ten years because of my teeth being so horrible. So I am excited knowing I will be able to actually look happy when I am happy but also scared of the process. I have chosen IV sedation due to a month ago having 2 infected molars and a wisdom tooth pulled and hearing the cracking almost sent me into a panic attack. I'm not too worried about the extractions, more about what comes after. I go for impressions tomorrow. How bad is that? I'm told the taste is the worst. My concern is that 8 days after the surgery is my son's wedding and 2 days after that we are supposed to leave on vacation to Colorado which can't be rescheduled. I don't expect any complications from the extractions. I healed pretty quickly from the last ones and others I've had in the past. I had to choose this appointment or it would have to wait until August, at which point school will have begun and I will be back at work and unable to take time off. I have read material and watched countless youtube videos and know everyone's experience is different and I won't know until it happens to me how things will go. The dentures are my main worry. I know adjustments have to be made, sore spots develop, and so on. Am I crazy to think I can manage a 9 day vacation 10 days out from extractions and immediate dentures? Any tips, advice, suggestions will be much appreciated.
