    A former co-worker did. She was as miserable as you sound in the beginning, she also had a raging infection that sent her to the Hospital for a few days. She was dramatically happier once she had the permanent ones and was more used to them. When I saw her in the summer she looked great, didn't even mention them so I believe all is OK with her. She'd also managed to keep off the weight she lost after getting her original teeth pulled. (Which were a crumbly mess and beyond repair.) So sorry you're going through this. Dental troubles are dreadful.

    My sister had it done last year and it was VERY difficult at first. You have to give your gums time to heal. It does get better. It's been about a year now and she is pretty comfortable with them. Plus, her overall health is better...she had a bunch of abcesses and that was causing respiratory infections...she hasn't had one all year!

    My father had it done and he never complained about anything, but then again I don't live anywhere near him so I am not sure he would tell me if he had problems. I saw him last summer and he seemed fine so I guess it does get better.

    My mom had it done and the recovery took some time painful! Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm sure it will get better. The mouth is slow to heal and it's difficult to get used to even one small change (having one tooth extracted). Hang in there and give it more time.

    My Mom had to have most of her teeth pulled about 5 years ago. I know at first she was miserable and wondered why she had it done. It took several weeks to heal and get use to her new teeth.

    She does say that her dentures aren't like real teeth but at least she isn't in pain anymore.

    OK so I have to tell my dentist today if I want one problem tooth pulled for a later implant, or have surgery to the root and a new post and crown. I was leaning towards the former but this thread has changed my mind!!

    NL, not the same thing. I am missing two teeth near the front (agh) so I have permenant bridges covering them. Some dday I may get implants. Those take forever and they are very expensive. I'd say post and crown will serve you well and you can address getting an implant later in life.

    I am so sorry that you are having problems with no teeth. I do believe the others are right, your gums wil toughen up and life will get better. I also think that you did yourself a lot of good by removoing teeth that could most certainly have shortened your life. I hope it gets better. Please don't hold regrets. Just like a cancer patient, know that you will survive this ordeal. Hugs.

    My DH had it done a few years ago to get implants. It was terribly painful and he couldn't eat certain things for a long time. That all went away and he was just fine.

    The implants, on the other hand, were done improperly and he now has to get them all completely redone the implants were much more painful than the extractions.

    I am sorry you are in so much pain. Hang in there. It will get better.

    This is not just about the pain, but the way I look AND feel-I am VERY numb in the lower part still-they said it "will probably" get better, but then, there are the
    "rare cases" where they do cut a nerve, and it never gets better. Having survived 2 rare diseases, having my dh die from a rare disease, the odds are NOT in my favor-it feels(and looks) like the lower part of my face had a stroke, it's all droopy and numb. I am going back in AGAIN 2morrow, to see if they can help me.
    I just wish my dh was here, to tell me that I'm beautiful no matter what-he was always so good at that
