I did update my previous post but not sure if it's been missed....
On 29th Sep i had my front top front teeth removed, a week earlier than planned as i had bumped my front tooth and it had become very loose and was causing me so much trouble, so i opted to have the teeth removed earlier.
I was petrified, but so glad that the hard part is now over and done with. I have to wait 10 days for healing and swelling to go down, then return to dentist for impressions.
My next app for imppressions is on 8th Oct
I was so shocked at the state of the root area of the extracted teeth, they were covered in gunk... not a nice sight at all. The smell was just as bad
I find it very hard to talk to my dentist, he seems to be rather abrupt so i choose not to speak to him much.
I have been left with no front teeth at all, my top lip sinks inside my mouth, leaving me looking like an old lady... i was thinking of buying some disposable face masks to wear as i am so embarrased about having no teeth at all. I did ask about have temp teeth but he refused saying i needed to let my gums heel.
I'm healing really well, and in no pain at all, infact i was shocked at how pain free it was and has been after wards... The worse part was the injections.
I have been house bound since having my teeth out, it's becoming very hard as i have 2 young children who are getting very bored, i have a big fear of someone seeing me like this... i look so awful.
I do feel much better after having the teeth removed, but i have to wait a long time with no teeth, any advice would be appreciated..
Thanks, Lou x
