      Thanks you! Everyone always says DONT read about it cause you will feel worse but its actually helping not hurting. Im not even as worried about the pain ill have after as i am about gagging. I have a very bad gag reflex. What your story?

      I'm actually just about to start as my first appointment for x rays is feb 21 and I was freaking out about the first one until i came on here and read the journals which helped calm me down a lot.

      The xrays were a breeze! Quick and easy i was scared for nothin on that part! I had those done last thursday. For the first time in a long time i went to the dentist for a toothache instead of hoping it goes away by itself and my right cheek was very swollen. So i sucked it up and asked about dentures. They did the x rays and examination and i was done for the day.

      Thank you and ill check out your story my biggest concern is gagging. I have a bad gag reflex. Any tips for that? Did you feel anything during the whole procedure? All i know is they will give me some pill to take a hour before. I hope i dont even remember or feel anything lol.

      Hi!

      First of all, good luck, it's a brave decision to make and it requires some acknowledgement. I've been there, I know.

      I'm on day 15 with a full upper denture. I can honestly say, best decision I've ever made. Pain, is minimal, like barely there minimal. During the procedure, besides a couple of the injections which lasted for about a second, I didn't feel anything but pressure. Can't call any of it pain (and I was terrified).

      Gagging. I do have a bit of an issue here but only in the last couple of days. I put it down to my gums shrinking and so the denture seems longer. I'm sure if I went back it could be corrected but I'm trying to hold off as there's still some healing to go. It's not all of the time either, maybe 3 times a day.

      My thread is just below "D-Day is Monday" or something like that. It's not overly huge as I'm only on day 15 and you can see just how much it was absolutely the right choice for me.

      I look forward to seeing your new smile
