I'm soon to be 54 and have been losing teeth since I was 23. I've had 4 full root canals with crowns fail and have to be extracted and have only 20 teeth left. I am now on amoxicillin to clear another infection. I'm having 7 teeth pulled on the 15th ( leaving 6 up and 6 lower ) and then a month later the remaining 13 will be pulled and dentures put in. Now that the pain of infection is lessening, I scared spitless. Not of having dentures, but what to expect. Any advice would be helpful.
Getting used to dentures may be a bit challenging, at first, but having dental infections is dangerous, and it will be so great to get those sources of infection out. Your whole body will thank you for that. Wishing you the very best, Sue
