I had all but four teeth pulled out 3 days ago. Pain has been minimal. Speech can be difficult at times, but I think it is due to the swelling of the surrounding rissue. I will not have teeth in my mouth until mid-September. I am not working so this is not too much of an issue for me. I am so glad I had those teeth pulled. No more infection and sensitivity and fear of which one is going to snap off next. And I know the end result will be worth it. Please, if you need dentures, don't hesitate. It will be so nice to smile again! Just do it!
