Yikes


I had the worst news from my dentist. I have to get dentures! Full upper and a partial lower plate. I am devastated! And terrified! I HATE going to the dentist, which is why I am in this position in the first place. I have advanced periodontal disease, which I guess can sneak up on you unawares. Anyway, take it from me-floss!

I LOVE the look of your blog! I wanted to try to brighten you up. I'm sorry about the periodontal disease. I hope it is not painful. At least when you blog, you don't have to open your mouth. I wish you the best. Definitely keep us posted!

Not good news! I'm so afraid of having to have the same thing. I just got braces off my teeth 7 years ago!
Good luck to you!

I can so relate to what you are going through. I just recently lost three teeth on one side of my upper and am wearing a partial...and another partial on the lower. It makes me sick..I am lucky I have any...and even they may go. I never thought it would happen to me..but it has.
There is not a single thing funny about it. I am miserable when I wear them.
I check on having those implants and it costs way more than I can afford! What an awful feeling it is!

I'm sorry to hear about this! I don't go to the dentist either because I'm a flutist and it messes up my mouth for playing. Maybe I should, though. At least no one will notice when you wear them, they make them look so life like.

Good luck. Hang in there.

I'm sorry to hear this, but I also hate the dentist but have found a very good friend. The mouthpiece and the calming gas that I had when I had to have dental work..I almost always look forward to going now...

Thanks for visiting and following my blog Mini MiMi Tales. I hopped over to return the visit and follow. Sorry about the bad news at the dentist. My mom had to have dentures...I actually wrote a post on my other blog about what an impression that made on me...it inspired me to brush and floss daily. Hopefully all will go well with you! Looking forward to getting to know you through your blog! Kathy

So sorry about the news. Dentures are no fun, before or after they are put in. Have you sought a second dental opinion?

Robin said...

Oh my goodness losing my teeth is one of my worst nightmares! I'm so sorry you have to go through that :(

I will keep all of my fingers and toes crossed that it goes as painlessly as possible for you!

Hi Sweetsue,
you and I have alot in common--though I still have my teeth. Before you decide for sure go to my dentist Paul Ortiz near Lloyd Center. He is truly a genius.
I saw that you like "crime"--it is my guilty pleasure. Hang in there about your teeth. Ortiz tells me that it is best to try our level best to hang onto our root system. Get another opinion!
Love your happy blog. :)
