Re: Full upper extraction
Good luck with the procedure. The most important thing to keep in mind is to have the right attitude. This procedure will do a lot of things for you and most of all it will change your life- for the positive. You have to consider all that is being done and don't try to place time values on it as you have never undergone this before and my experience or someone else's is not going to be the same. Also a lot depends on what sort of help and support you have at home. Taking care of little ones can be exhausting without adding surgery and a new prosthetic device or two.
Having the procedure done in the hospital under general anesthesia will allow them to take all the time they need to fully clear your jaw and gums of debris.
As far as the denture goes, most dentists suggest keeping it in for at least the first 24 hours- follow their instructions to the letter. Just try to keep it all in perspective. The process can be slow and frustrating but if you give it time, it will work out.
