Red face need advice

Hi guys i have so many ??s i hope someone can help.I too have a phobia about going to the dentist which is why i am asking these ??s today first i was in an accident(nothing serious but chipped 2 front teeth that was 3 years ago now there pretty much rotted down i went to the dentists to get consultations most said i would need about 10 teeth pulled and bridge work that would only leave me about 7 teeth and a bill for over 5,000 i have no dental insurance which is why im still walking around like this i think i got use to it.My ??s are i am only 28 should i just have all my teeth pulled and wear dentures and will that hurt and are dentures uncomfortable would i need to see a dentist or oral surgeon and how long will the whole process take(from teeth pulled to getting the dentures)I worried im to young for them i have the money now and im ready to do something now .

How about getting porcelain veneers since its only 2 chipped teeth? I'm not sure if you want to wear dentures at 27?

Just a thought

Is your dentist recommending a complete claearance of all your upper teeth and then an immediate denture or do you have other options such as a partial plate or bridge ?

If you scroll down you will find a very informative thread re: immediate dentures. It will answer all your questions about dentures and more!! It has a huge amount of wonderful information.

I have some bad teeth in back and had some pulled over the years which they say alot will have to come out in next 5 years or so anyway that will only leave me with about 7 teeth thats why he says just pull all and dentures will be cheaper also.
