My dentist wants to extract ALL my 32 teeth using only novocaine, and then wait 6 months BEFORE getting dentures. Is this SOP?

Do directly to a GOOD dentist.

Are ALL of your teeth bad?

They can replace JUST the bad ones today with individual tooth implants today without having to resort to just dentures

THIS sounds like the bulldozer of dentistry to me

Yes, she can...but it's EXPENSIVE!!!

"A single tooth dental implant can range in price from $1,000 to $5,000. The fee for replacing an entire set of teeth with reconstructive dental implants can be anywhere from $24,000 to $100,000."

At the very least, get a second opinion.Pulling teeth is midevil and not an sop in modern dentistry.O.P., this isn't about money right now. A good dentist will work with you. You can also dig up money or credit some where. Do some on line research and hit several dentists.Some dentists will do dental for free or what the patient can afford. As you know,you can't go back once the teeth are extracted.

Re: My dentist wants to extract ALL my 32 teeth using only novocaine, and then wait 6 months BEFORE getting dentures. Is this SOP?
Yep, all extractions need to be completely healed before proceeding with any reconstruction work. You're going to be swimming in antibiotics for a while with that many open wounds in your mouth. As a youth, I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled with only novacaine and not something I'd recommend. If your teeth are that bad, then they might come out very easy but if you've got curved roots that require the tooth to be broken for extraction, then you're in for a long day in the chair.

Agree with the 2nd opinion. Good luck OP.

Assuming all your teeth need extraction, he should make an immediate denture that you can wear immediately after extraction. It will have to be felines to fit better after about 6 months of healing.

I am NOT a dentist but sounds like the dentist is just wanting to do the extraction of ALL teeth to rid the ORegan state for any future bills

op im going for full upper/lower implants - i had all 32s extracted last sept & nov..

i had one molar done last summer pulled with novacaine - one.
jesus criminy.....they drilled holes on the lateral sides, ice picked it and yanked. the dentist knew better and kept his crotch arched away from my reach.

jadio & jay had theirs done too


i forget which but one of them had to do it by novacaine

dude - dont do it.

get knocked out. i was knocked out for the multi pulls.

and you can get immed dentures theyre called soft plates.

go to a dental college - i went to philly - penn dental. they accept insurance and have programs if youre of low income.

dental schools are cheaper bc they only charge for materials.

you get immed dentures too - alot of pvt practices dont do soft plates anymore. dunno why.

I was in dentistry for 30 years, worked for oral surgeons, general dentistry. I would do an immediate denture, that's where they full all the teeth and put in your denture. It's much easier to get use to the plastic in your mouth. You will have to get use to not tasting your food, when you cover the roof of your mouth with that denture it takes away taste buds. People, brush your teeth everyday with Thieves oil toothpaste, floss everyday. Get your teeth cleaned at least 1 a year. I'm 58 and have all my teeth.

This is unusual. Dentists usually balk at pulling all of your teeth especially if only 2 need work.
When one gets dentures, the dentist puts in a temporary immediately. After 6-8 weeks of healing, they put in the permanents.
I'd go to another dentist.
