Dr. Brueggen, Houston...all on Four - Houston, TX

I had my all on four procedure done two days ago. Actually, I had an extra implant and 6 bone grafts too. No pain. I haven't taken as much as a tylenol. A little swelling today, and one tiny bruise. I probably could have found a less expensive doctor, but he had such great reviews and I felt very comfortable with him.

I also had about 15 teeth pulled. I am not sure...

I also had about 15 teeth pulled. I am not sure how many teeth I had. I had a fixed bridge and some crowns and a couple of teeth that were broken off and he had to remove the roots.

I am 9 days past having my implants done, and so far, so good. The swelling is gone. I had one small bruise at the corner of my mouth, and it is faded almost completely. I still haven not had to take anything for pain....nothing over the counter or prescribed. I was told I can eat anything I can cut with a fork, but no biting with my front teeth like eating pizza or a sandwich. Nothing hard like nuts. So, my diet hasn't been as restricted as I thought it would be. Dr. Brueggen told me it was very important to maintain a good quality diet. I will be going back for a check up next week, and I am looking forward to hearing that I am healing well. So far, this has been easy. I do think motivation plays into it and I was extremely motivated to get this done.

I went for my first check up today. They gave me two water piks and some little brushes and a floss threader and told me how to clean my teeth. Dr. Brueggen looked at my gums but didn't remove the "appliances". They will remove them and clean them, the next time I go back, in February. I had been told to only eat foods that I could cut with a fork, so I have been very careful about chewing but was told, it was okay to chew, as long as I don't eat really hard or sharp foods or bite with my front teeth. So, I haven't found the diet to be very restrictive at all. Still extremely pleased with the results.

I went for my 3 mo. check up a few days ago. I...

I went for my 3 mo. check up a few days ago. I was thinking he'd have to take out the arches, but they didn't. They cleaned them and took x rays. Dr. Brueggen said they look great and to keep on doing what I am doing....which is keeping them clean. No problems at all so far, and they feel perfectly natural. I have gotten many compliments on them.

Wax try in

Went for wax try in today. Not pleased on many levels. Go back on the 30th for second one. Dr. Brueggen wasn't in the room for the try in, and I wish he was so he could address the problems, so when I go back, I will be certain he is there before they do it. I feel sure he will take care of it, but having it come out so very wrong has made me very edgy.
Houston Cosmetic Dentist

I researched this for 3 years. I read everything I could find on the internet, every video on Vimeo and Youtube. I saw him on the Wellness Hour and he impressed me with his compassion and the fact that he seemed very down to earth and someone I could feel comfortable with. I will post a picture later.
