Shocked and upset! At 29 I have to have teeth removed!
So, I went to the dentist today, after years of avoiding it. I thought I just had an abscess, but apparently the bottom center 2 teeth have no bone supporting them and they will have to be removed. She didn't even check the rest, because she wants to get this under control. I was shocked that, at 29, I am loosing 2 teeth. Not only that, but I have to wear a partial for 2 months until she can do a bridge. I'm so upset, and I stumbled across this forum, and I'm just really looking for anyone who has gone through this, or anyone that can give me support. I'm scared that I'm going to look horrible, and scared of them taking my teeth, then the partial doesn't fit right? Not to mention, I'm scared of what she'll find with the full xray! Agh! Help!
