Surely I have some sort of rights to have this taken out? It's nearly been a f**king week.

Tazey, sorry but just read my post and l meant to say l had 12 top and bottom, not 6. Certainly your 6 top and bottom is a mystery. Hopefully these are only to get you used to having something in your mouth again and your finals will be at least 12 top and bottom. It took me nearly 3 years to complete mine... but are on implants that are compromised... so my heart goes out to you on your long journey. As long as your implants are sound the final restoration should be a good job eventually. I completely understand your frustration after so long but you are an incrediby strong woman to go the distance you have endured. I was broken and diminished after 3 years. Chin up and be proud of who you are and what you are capable of. xx6 bottom+6 top but still wouldn't call that "normal",I have no clue how they were put in he didn't say I'm not sure if they are my finals or what? thanks for the positive vibes I sure do need them. Still trying to get an appointment no point trekking there till we know for sure,but I do have doctors again later so not happy that I'm left hanging yet again.
I needed a rest so no at the mo the implants are covered with the caps like how it was before,at least I can eat a bit better for now but like I say still in a awkward situation.So sorry your appointment went like this, tazey. Sounds like a torture..
I wasn't sure I understood whether you are still having the front teeth in or whether anything changed, apart of you having another painful experience..
It hurt really bad for me. I have a fairly high pain tolerance as well, and the previous visit I was literally coming out of the chair. The dentist said he would use a topical the next time. He did but ended up giving me a shot also, because it was so painful.Should it really be soo painful tho? I just know as soon as he touches the top its gonna hurt. My jaw/mouth is getting a rest now which is good just wish the rest of me could,my body never gets to relax. Even if I decided to have a shot I don't trust him to do it not with how rough he is with impressions,I was literally gagging+he's just like another minute.
Thing is he did use a topical gel but I don't think it makes any difference. I just don't know what to do next? was it better after the shot?It hurt really bad for me.

Absolutely! The topical did not help at all. With the shot, all I felt was pressure which was not comfortable but did not hurt at all. The shot made all the difference. I was able to relax finally.Thing is he did use a topical gel but I don't think it makes any difference. I just don't know what to do next? was it better after the shot?
Not exactly he didn't really show the teeth after they got back from the lab.I have always had the shots. It is also easier for the dentist without their patients squirming and tensing in the chair, which makes the process quicker. Did you find out about the side/back teeth?
Yes but no one in my house drives the only person who could give me a lift should be sheilding+has already picked his "bubble",I'm not feeling well enough to get the train+taxi would be a fortune there+back. The thing with the hospital is I don't want to go back there but if I leave I have no where else to go,I'm not worried just peed off that covid has caused more problems on top of the ones that were already there. I want to just say screw it all but how can I when it's effecting my eating,it would be easier if someone just took them out (implants).If they’re offering consultations you must be allowed to go there. And a medical appointment is a valid reason for leaving the house. Can someone in your household drive you there? Is public transport running? Can you get a taxi (maybe too expensive?). And hospitals have often got the full PPE stuff so can handle the aerosols. Maybe give them a call to find out.
You sound really worried. I’d try to get to the appointments if at all possible. Good luck!
