Will I Have to Go Without Teeth During Treatment?
15th October 2016
A. Hello. I'm sorry to hear that your fear is great and is holding you back from doing what you know you need. Yes, you could be sedated to have the teeth removed and yes you can have dentures placed immediately after the teeth are removed. You don't have to go toothless. I do this quite a bit because there are actually quite a few people like you out there. Those who have faced their fears and had this done have never looked back and look better, feel better and no longer have teeth to be afraid of. Cost-wise, it depends who is going to do this for you and what their fees are. I think you would have to be seen first for an assessment. Are you looking for NHS or private dentistry? But you need to take the next step. Contacting me is a really good start to breaking down this barrier. Yes you will feel anxious when you make an appointment, but going to see the dentist doesn't commit you to anything other than having a look and a discussion. So breathe deeply as you go in; the anxiety may be strong but it will gradually damp down. Hope this helps, Jenny
