Trying to decide whether to get dentures
I have only 5 teeth in the front, the rest were pulled. I have been wearing a partial for over 10 years, and it’s problematic. I have a very hard time chewing food, lettuce is a terrible issue, the partial doesn’t really cut into food. My dentist suggested an upper denture, after having the five remaining teeth pulled. I would receive an immediate denture.
I’m in the cosmetics industry, it is very important to look presentable for my career, and I’m worried about that, but I’m also worried about pain. Is it possible that because I only have to have 5 extractions I will have an easier time?
Will having dentures be easier to deal with than this ridiculous partial that doesn’t really look or work that well for me?
Should I just screw up my courage and do it?
