I have decided to have my teeth pulled with just novacaine and would like to know how bad it will be from those of you have had it done that way. I chickened out on anesthesia and immediates due to having a bad reaction to anesthesia before. This will mean 2 E-Days instead of one, though. My dentist wants to pull all my teeth but the front top 6 and the bottom top 4. She wants to do this on Friday! Jan. 6 E-Day will be for the rest of my teeth and then I will go a month with no teeth while I heal.
My questions are 1: How awful is it to have your teeth pulled when you are awake while they do it? 2: With only 6 teeth on top and 4 on bottom, will it be really noticeable that I've had teeth pulled? 3: How bad is it to go a month with no teeth or dentures?! I will have to stock up on food (pudding/applesauce?) so I won't have to leave my apartment (I live alone. My sister would help, but she lives 80 miles away). 4: How hard is the ajustment from no teeth at all to dentures? I will be starting Spring semester right after I get my dentures. Really don't want anyone to know. Thanks for your advice!
