| | Considering dentures..After extraction pain...
Hello all. I recently had two of my teeth break in half. Luckily these are back molars. I am going Wednesday to have them removed. I have already had 3 or 4 teeth surgically removed, not including my wisdom teeth. It seems as if my teeth are rotting out of my head. I am 28 years old. I have always had dental problems.
I have been thinking about what I'll do when my front teeth start breaking. I dont have health insurance or dental insurance of any kind, so I'm having to pay $880 Wednesday to have two teeth pulled. Why so much you ask? I have to go to an oral surgeon because I don't react to novacaine. The last three times I've had to have dental work, the first two, it did absolutely nothing, no numbness at all, and the third and last that I had it, my vocal chords went numb. So needless to say I had to pay more for an oral surgeon.
I dont have a problem with getting my teeth removed and fitted for dentures, but I do have alot of questions. First I figure if I had the other 18 teeth pulled, what kind of pain and swelling will I experiece? I have no tolerance for pain and am a big baby when it comes to my teeth. I've had traumatic experiences as a kid when it comes to the dentist, and I think most of that is having dental work done with no reaction to the novacaine.
Has anyone had 18 or so teeth pulled all at one time? When would I feel up to going back to work? I will not go to work without any teeth, so I would really need my dentures before I went back to work. Any suggestions, or advice would be greatly appreciated.
I also want to ask about non adhesive dentures. Is there such a thing? My dad was telling me about dentures that just snap onto your gums or something.
