... You'll do fine! Honest! I think I used to be the biggest dental phobic in the world. Getting me to do all this was very hard. Now I go with NO FEAR! ... (25 replies)
... scary. It must've been, because I was a wimpy child who had never had any sort of medical or dental procedure done, and I don't recall being traumatized by it in the least. ... (25 replies)
... Allison, Most dental practices can fit you with what is called a flipper- it is a temporary partial denture. A lot of your particular treatment may be based on the condition of your remaining teeth. If you need a lot of other work your dentist may be reluctant to fit you with a denture or dentures until the rest of your teeth that will support the denture are stable. I... (1 replies)

... Hang in there. It's so worth it. It is just an inconvenience for such a short while for a lifetime of investment. Do not put pressure with eating on the implant. You may have to remove it completely for eating. Congratulations. Anita (6 replies)
... teeth decided to be perfect, but if you only will lose 4 teeth and be able to get implants there, that is great news. and it sounds as though you finally found a dental office you feel comfortable with. I know that was a problem too. We just do not know what we are getting ourselves in for. ... (13 replies)
... I too, had to undergo extraction of a front (upper) tooth #10 - if you know where that is. Well, I have been tramautized ever since, because of the cosmetic complication to say the least. It is not visible (gap) if I speak carefully but if I laugh, forget it! AND I think a lot of things are funny so need I say more! My process takes so long and I still have to wait several...

... I had waited so long because i dont have any type of dental or health insurance and i have to pay cash for everything. The dentist i had been going totally soaked all the money out of me. ... (7 replies)
... If the situation left you no choice then you may want to go alone with the decision. In where I work (dental office), we do post build up (put a metal post in as support and build the tooth up then crown it) for cases like this but then I don't know exactly how the tooth looks like. If this is not an option, you can think about a bridge instead of a flipper. Now these days,... (5 replies)
... implant Dr. All I know about him so far is he teaches at a dental school. He said he does 800 to 900 implants a year. His office wasn't fancy like the others. No Tv on the ceiling LOL. He seemed more down to earth. ... (13 replies)

... I should also mention that I was really confused before I started all of this. I didn't know who was supposed to do what. You need a dentist to manage this care and communicate with the Oral Surgeons. The dentist is also the guy that will make your flipper (temporary retainer with a little tooth hanging on it), your temporary tooth after the implant, and then the final... (6 replies)

... Oh my, now I don't know what to say, seems that you're basically in the same boat that I'm in. I have absoluteley horrible gag reflexes, trying to get accustomed to the mouth full of plastic has been a nightmare. I have found that when chewing on food my gagging vanishes so I started keeping a pocket full of candies, seems that if I can keep my tongue busy with something I... (3 replies)
