Where Can I Go to Have All My Teeth Extracted?

Where can I go to get all my teeth out? I have 5/6 missing. My front teeth are damaged. I have been told that I have to have another tooth out at the front. My dentist will not take them all out. I am very nervous at the dentist, so much so I just break down. I am 54 years old. I lost my other teeth after I had a baby at 42. I was told I had some sort of disease in my gums. I am 100 percent sure I would like the remaining teeth out.

This is a problem that is actually not that unusual.
Without seeing your teeth I cant give you a definite answer.
The difficulty is if the remaining teeth are good. Unless they are bad then it will be difficult. if not impossible, to find someone to take them all out.
I assume you have a denture to replace any missing front teeth. A compromise may be to seek a second opinion and possibly have any dodgy ones out which may give trouble in the future.
Full sets of false teeth bring their own problems, and if you have a lot of teeth out at once then you also lose some of the bone in your jaw as well. Hope this helps a bit.
