Dental problems causing severe anxiety

I am 28 and have to remove all my teeth. I have bad dental problems. I am going to get dental implants like the stars get. I feel good knowing I won't be in pain anymore, but nervous about having to have no teeth for 6 months while they create the implants. I have to wear those teeth you wear when you are old for 6th months til I get permanent teeth. I keep thinking about waking up in the morning with no teeth in my mouth. It sounds scary. I have to do this next month. I feel anxiety thinking about this. I also know nothing about the permanent teeth. What if they fall off after a while. I can not stop thinking about this. What would you do in my situation?

I'm sorry you are scared. I would be, too.
But in the end you will have a set of permanent teeth.
As expensive as they are they should never fall out.
And will look good, right? Lol
Seriously I've only heard good things about them.
Peace today.

I imagine it will feel really odd but once you get your bionic super teeth you should be just fine. They take that stuff into account. If they just fell out no one would use them. As for no teeth, id be nervous as well. No idea what to expect. I doubt it will be bad though.

I would highly recommend, Tom, that you see a GP, general doctor p ractioner, and they can urgently refer you on to phsychartry doctor.

i would advise, that you take Pregabalin on a twice daily basis, that could well help.

I hope you;ll recover, yes, I understand, Ive been there, dental is anxiety p rovoking.
