I went to the dentist for an evaluation and he said I needed to have all of my teeth extracted. I had already guessed that would be the case. When I asked how that would be accomplished, he said that he could do a few at a time or all at once, it was up to me. I decided to have them done all at once to get it over with. He said that was good because that way all of the healing would take place at the same time.
After doing some research on the internet, it seems that the normal course of action would be to extract the top back teeth first and allow them to heal for about 6 weeks, then extract the top front teeth and insert the immediate denture. I read that pulling all of the top teeth at once is "problematic", but the website gave no reason why.
Can someone, either a dentist or someone who has gone through this, give me some advice? Should I not have them all extracted at one time? Why is this considered problematic? I have an appointment on Monday, but I'd like more information before I speak to my dentist.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
