Dentures question please



Feb 14, 2018
Hi folks,
It is looking very likely I will be having to have bottom dentures, I am currently going out of my mind with worry over this, the extractions, the embarassment, the shame, the whole situation is making me ill with worry, can anyone please give support on how to deal with this situation? can anyone tell me of their experience with bottom dentures? I am a complete wreck
