Hi everyone. Last thursday I went to the dentist after 9 years and I was confronted with some tough decesions after my visit. I can either fix all of my top teeth for a large amount of money or get dentures on top. All but my six canines on bottom are going to be pulled also. I go for my bottom impressions on friday. I was pretty upset on thursday, really only about getting the top done because I feel sort of like a failure in taking care of my teeth, but if you can't afford to go what is one supposed to do? Anyways I almost immediatley new it was what I wanted to do. I wouldn't be in anymore pain or embaressment, and I would have a perfect smile. I also wouldn't feel sick anymore I was told I had a few abses teeth as well. None of my friends as least that I know of have never really had to deal with anything like this. I guess I am just embarassed right now, but once its over and I am a few weeks into it I will be feeling pretty good. Thanks everyone for posting your stories it has really given me hope and a sense of relief that I made the right choice.
