Way back when I pregnant with my first child. I would drink a gallon of milk a day. It was like a posest and he was a very healthy baby but he wrecked havic on my teeth.After serveral years to the dentist my dentist felt I need to get dentures on my top teeth. Now fast forward 23 years. my bottom teeth are giving me havoc .. Again my dentist feels no matter how he tried h I will also need dentures on my bottom teeth. I am scared. I never thought at the age of 46 I would have a mouth of dentures. I am devastaed. So so time next month I will go to the dentist and then a oral surgery to get the procedure done. I am happy that maybe after 20 plus years I might have a nice smile. My problem is I heard horror stories of the bottom dentures. I am getting the implants so they stay in place i am scare of the cost but I do not want to be toothless my whole life. Help please tell me im not alone. please do not make frun of me. THe bottom teeth went to lack of nutrients due to my gastric bypass. I am sad and about to cry. I need support and not negative comments .THank you:eusa_pray:

I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort. Think of how wonderful it will be to smile with ease. Both my parents lost their teeth early due to medication and smoking. It was a huge deal for my dad. Eventually, he adjusted.

Of course, you're not alone. I'm wondering if you were to google dentures and teeth if you'd find a forum that may specifically address your concerns.

Take care of yourself.

Don't let anyone make you feel bad for what you're going through. Take care.

Dentures are not the end of the world.
Many are worse off than you.
think about all those who worship Glen Beck.

Take it from the word of a former dental assistant.
You are doing the right thing with having implants done for your bottom teeth.
The bottom ridge always wears down after time and then eventually they have to have the implants in order for the bottoms to stay put.
You will also be able to eat better and more things with a lower implant.
Believe me it is well worth the cost.

We also had quite a few patients in their twenties who had to have dentures, your age doesn't have anything to do with how your teeth are.
Being 46 is not so bad, please don't be devastated.
You will like your new smile and your implants. :eusa_pray:
