Hello all , after months of research and interviewing surgeons it's go time ! For years I have put off having my Periodontal disease treated. My teeth hurt , bleed and are loose and still my fear kept me from going to the dentist. Fast forward 4 years and here we are ! Because I waited so long I am now losing all of my upper teeth and will be getting implants. Thankfully the bottom teeth can be saved and I will have gum surgery on 4/20. That surgery does not seem quite as scary as it will take place in a surgical center and I will be out for the procedure. I have spent months working through my dental fear and have come a long way to get to this point. This forum has helped a lot ! I am wondering if anyone has had full upper extractions and what this healing process will be like ? I go in on Tuesday for impressions which has me rattled . I don't know what to expect which usually contributes to the anxiety. They have told me I have a few loose teeth that may actually come out with the impression which has me freaking out as well. Anyone have this experience ? Thank you for the help !
