A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes but to get into accord with them: they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world.

Sigmund Freud.

Let  me paraphrase-Freud is saying to you You don't have to white knuckle through your dental surgery. This is not the time to start toughing it out. Relax and enjoy a comfortable visit. with Sedation Accept that dentistry is not natural and you have other life issues that are more important to resolve than suffering through dental phobia. For instance getting your adult to move out of the basement or DC Swamp inventing new eco laws to trip you with.

The Life Smile Lift
The more conservative alternative to All-On-4 Dental implant bridge you have read about so much lately.

Yes it is true that when you have no remaining teeth left then all on four or five or six approach is great but when you have several teeth left taking them all out at once could be a mistake. And the reason is "bone loss." By keeping certain teeth at the time of implants the dentist is able to prevent bone loss. The result is a more esthetic result and a less difficult transition to a full implant bridge over time, and it is less up front cost to the patient

When teeth are lost as well as when there is gum disease the result is the destruction of alveolar bone; that is the bone that supports teeth; with in a few months half of the bone needed to support teeth disintegrates when a tooth is pulled.
