hi my name is mary as I write this I realize fear has held me back so much in my life I have always had trouble with my teeth, I was in a violent abusive relationship for 23 years of my life he paid for nothing the only time I had been to the dentist were for cleans and scales under the government which was very painful that was when I was a single mum in my Forties then ably 12 years ago my dad was dying from cancer and that time because of gums and wisdom teeth he paid about five thousand to have them removed and had partial dentures 3 teeth two bottom ones. And had problems getting the plate in and out. My other fear came from when I was young going to the dentist in the U.K. I was abused by a dentist. Well I am 64 now and have to get 20 teeth out and because married now we can afford it and will be sedated I feel so embarrassed I should of done something earlier but I am fearful of the unknown getting dentures and how it will affect my life I am praying for the better with no more pain or infection I am getting immediate dentures does that mean latter will get permanent ones I don’t know how it works will be getting surgery on the 9th August.
