I am 29 and need dental implants :'(
I am 29 years old and need dental implants. I knew this day was coming but still very upset about it.
***Backstory:: I made the mistake of going to a regular dentist instead of an orthodontist for braces. He kept me in them for 6 years. The damage that having them on for so long to my teeth is horrendous and I literally have NO roots left as a result***
I have already had to have 4 teeth pulled. I can't even tell you how many are broken and chipped. They are basically all just falling apart. I have decided to move forward with implants but am so nervous.
Have any of you had them placed? Did they pull all of your other teeth first? If so, how long after pulling your teeth do u have to wait to get the implants? When they place the implants are u awake or under general anesthesia? How long does the procedure take? Is it sore or painful afterward and for how long? How different do implants feel compared to your regular teeth?
