One Patient’s Implant Story
We make changing lives our business at New Albany Implants, and a recent patient’s implant procedure not only met but, if you asked her, it exceeded her expectations as well. Janet came to us several months ago with a lot of trouble in her back teeth. She had been wearing a partial denture for years and was finally fed up with the hassle.
She had decided that dental implants were her best bet for a life that didn’t involve irritated gums, slipping dentures, and a lot of discomfort. We want to share her experience with you today – it’s patients like her that are the perfect example of the kind of care we love to give. Seeing Janet smile in amazement at her results is what we look for every day at our New Albany dentist office.
She Wasn’t Sure About Implants At First
Janet’s first appointment at New Albany Implants was her first dentist appointment in years. When she lost her lower molars and was fitted with a partial denture she stopped seeing her family dentist. It’s easy to fall out of the routine of dental care – we see it a lot!
We have a strict policy at our office: we never guilt or shame patients who have been away from the dentist for a while. We want to welcome everyone back to great dental care at New Albany Implants no matter how long they’ve been away!
Janet had always been a bit nervous about the dentist, which is part of the reason she ended up losing some teeth in the first place. She usually only saw the dentist when she had a problem and when she ended up with cavities in two of her molars she waited to get checked for fear of needing a root canal or a large filling. She made a mistake that a lot of people make: assuming the problem wasn’t too bad.
It ended up costing five teeth: three on her left and two on the right. Janet never enjoyed her partial dentures and wanted a solution. She had heard about dental implant treatments but wasn’t sure that she wanted to deal with the pain!
Janet’s First Dental Implant Appointment
When she came to New Albany Implants we took a series of 3D scans and digital X-rays of her mouth that gave us a good understanding of the best treatment for her. We walked her through a full dental implant roadmap, which outlined all her treatment options from start to finish.
But Janet’s primary concern wasn’t the cost or the time: it was the pain and her dental anxiety. That was one of the reasons that Janet chose to come to New Albany Implants for care: we offer multiple levels of dental sedation to help people just like Janet make it through her implant procedure without even needing to be awake.
Dental sedation was a big reason that Janet decided on implants at our New Albany office. We armed her with a full treatment plan that outlined every one of her costs from start to finish and scheduled her implant procedure.
Getting Her Dental Implants
Janet opted for two zirconium implant supported bridges. These amazing lifelike bridges completely replaced her missing teeth and gave her an unprecedented level of chewing and speaking ability. By the end of her three month recovery she was eating her favorite foods, laughing and enjoying time with family and showing off her new teeth to the world.
Janet also started coming to our office for regular dental care as well. Once implants are placed they require the same care as regular teeth: regular brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings. Every time we see her she can’t thank us enough for giving her teeth that allow her to live the life she wanted!
