I do this because I know it is very difficult for some, and I had a lot of questions when I had mine... Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.

I have a partial now, temporarily, while working on grafting and implant.

Surprisingly, boyfriend does not care, but we’ve been together for 4 years; he might have cared 4 years ago.

That might impact your love life, but it won’t kill it altogether.

Think of it this way: it will remove the shallow types.

There are many days I will look at my teeth in the mirror and forget myself. As far as the people close to you...think of it as a good thing; anybody worth knowing will understand and accept the changes as part of living a healthy life, anybody who would put you down for it didn't belong in your life anyway. By far the toughest thing to cope with was the process of pulling them out.

Make sure she understands that when they are done right NOBODY will know they aren't real.

If your teeth were so bad as to warrant their removal at 21, your life can only go uphill from here.

Your health will improve, because mouth is the gateway to the rest of the body, including heart.

I chain-smoked (no one knew smoking causes gum disease), and flossing was just too much to ask for a 20-something-year-old who was rebelling against parental strictures.

I had what the dentist called “gingivitis,” which got progressively worse. It wasn’t until I was 40 that my smile improved – but that’s because I spent more money than I could afford getting all my teeth capped.

Your body won’t have to battle so much infection anymore. They look very natural, no one needs to know they are not real.
