My Childhood Experience with Dental Prosthetics and Bridges
My quest to find the best solutions for people with missing teeth wasn’t just a professional decision…it grew from my own painful personal experiences…read on…
I was born with a congenitally missing tooth, associated with a partial cleft palate. Throughout my childhood I wore an awful removable plastic partial to replace one of my front teeth. I’ve always known the feeling of having something cumbersome and ineffective in my mouth. I was able to chew much better without it, so I removed it whenever I ate at home, but I was too embarrassed to do that in front of others. Eating with that partial in place really took all of the enjoyment out of my meals.
As a teenager, I was able to get a traditional bridge made. This was done when permanent bridges were common, and I had to have the teeth next to the missing tooth ground down to support the bridgework. However, grinding the enamel away from healthy teeth is far from the best choice in the 21st Century.
Naturally, I always had a greater sensitivity for people with missing teeth than my fellow dental students and I learned everything I could about replacing missing teeth. What I learned in dental school was just the tip of the iceberg and the foundation for a lifetime of learning and study.
As a senior in dental school, I decided it was time to replace my basic dental work with something more high-tech. I was in for the shock of my life when they removed that bulky old bridge—one of my formerly perfect teeth had been ground down to a “toothpick”. I swore then and there that I would always try to do the right thing, in my mind, when helping patients with missing teeth.
My Search for the Truth about Dental Implants
It was easy to see that dental implants were the answer to so many dental problems, but I never understood why so little time had been spent on this in dental school, because missing teeth are a huge problem for people.
I decided to seek out the “best of the best” for my own personal training. I started with Nobel BioCare, the largest manufacturer of implants in the world. I studied their systems and prosthetics under Dr. Jack Hahn, a Cincinnati dentist who had placed over 30,000 implants.
The Midwest Implant Institute in Columbus, Ohio was the clear place to get the implant training I wanted, which was under the supervision of Dr. Duke Heller, the founder. He had placed 35,000 dental implants and is an expert and icon in the implantology field. He actually invented many of the instruments and techniques that are used today. Doctors fly to Columbus, Ohio from all over the world to train under Dr. Heller, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with a true implant legend right here “in my own backyard.”
