The tooth extraction day is finally here!!!! Tomorrow morning I will travel an hour or so and have all my teeth removed. I am excited and nervous all in the same. It will be nice to not have to drain daily pus pockets in my mouth!!!! And to not feel sick…man. At the same time ahhhh the pain…but it will be worth it. I might even have normal sugars after this…wow that in itself would be amazing!!!! I hope I loose some weight as well!!!!!!!!! I know my heart will thank me as well!!!!

Sorry to hear you had a bad experience with the dentist. I knowhow it can be as Ihave very soft teeth that will not hold a filling for 8-12months. I too have found myself being on antibioticasvery often. The thing I have found that works is to go with a list of Questions and make sure that each step is explained to my best understanding, including all of the options. Some times i schedule another appoint on an other day, that way I understandwhat works best for me. Hope that all the others needed apointments work out for you. Remember they are working for you (even if there demant such hiah prices) may the rest of you days be filled with joy.

Well THANKS everyone but today was a HORRIBLE DEPRESSING mading day for me. I did not get to have my teeth out…the doc was well an A**hole!!! I got there early did my impressions. They gave me 3 scripts to fill…an antibotic a pain med and valium. I was to take the 2 valium 1 hr before surgery so took them right away. I got back to the clinic and sat for maybe 5 to 10 minutes then they called me back to start. Mind you the valium needs an hour to work. They started the laughing gas usually I fall asleep within 10 mins but it wasnt enough for me. They then came to numb my mouth for shots…I had headphones on to drowned out the noise. Still the laughing gas and valium are NOT working. Now I have had the valium maybe 20-25 mins. The doc comes in and JAMS the novicaine needle into my gums several times hard and fast. I am CRYING hard bawling and saying OW OWIE he keeps going then gets to my top by now I am sobbing! He says I need to do these…then says I cant work with you you need to go back to Sioux Falls and be put under to have this done…thing is they were not even busy today…its a walk in business but need an appt for teeth removal. Now Im crying pissed off hurting bad…but had to go back to get my dentures…I did get dentures today but not my teeth done. So now I have to try to come up with another 2000 to 3000 by May 10th to have this done…WILL THIS EVER END FOR ME WHY CANT I CATCH A BREAK!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO DEPRESSED!!!!! I have now been up for 39 dang hours…why why why SIGH

Hi there-I know a mother and daughter that both had to have all their teeth extrated also. They both did great and were up and around the next day! They took pain meds for about 3 days but did good! They are both with full dentures now and look beautiful! I pray you will have as easy of a time as them! God Bless You.

Thinking of you and hoping you won't have too much pain, they can hopefully give you good meds. and hope you recover soon.
