i am 36 years old and had dentures for a year now i hated going to the dentist i think more than anybody which is why i needed dentures i felt terrified going in and coming out. i went to aspen dental they were really nice made me feel more comfortable about the whole thing, they recomended doing the top and bottom at the same time so i had it done, i couldnt afford to be put to sleep for it so i just had novacane and had all teeth. i wanted to be put to sleep for it but it wasnt as bad as i thought it would be thankfully wont have to go through again it was only one time i had to through it so glad i got it all done at once cause it would have been hard for me to go back to do it again. i got the dentures that day, it hurt really bad but the pain killers worked fine i was a smoker at the time and couldnt smoke for three days which made it a little worse. i ate mostly soup, oatmeal, scrambled eggs for a couple weeks the gradually started eating more things. i dont regret getting it done i am so glad no more abscesses no more pain i could eat things i havent been able to eat or had a hard time eating since i was like 13. it was hard at first but it does get easier.
