Sinve July I have been losing my teeth. At this point I don't have any front teeth or teeth on the upper left side. My dentist suggest I pull them all out because they are in such rough shape. I am petrified. That will be 16 teeth in one extraction
I have been awake for all my extractions, but for the remaining teeth my dentist suggested an oral surgeon and laughing gas. I am terrified of the gas. My husband loved it and thinks I am nuts for staying awake for all my extractions. But I am afraid of needles in my arms.
I am also terrified of the recovery. For all my other extractions, my recoveries have not been easy. Actually I had 2 molars pulled last week and I am still in pain. My teeth lock into the jawbone, so it takes work to get them out. My jaw feels like a mac truck hit it. 16 teeth recovery sounds horrible. I know they give you pain killers, but oxycodine makes me itch and I am allergic Tylenol with codeine. What else could they give. 16 teeth, I can't get over it. I am going to be in so much pain
