Well I went in for my initial visit this past...
Well I went in for my initial visit this past Monday. I have done my research on the all in 4 implant system. I have a full upper denture and my 5 front bottom teeth that have had root canals and crowns yrs ago. I go back on the 26th for my full exam and impressions then a few days later to go in for the wax try ins. I'm excited to actually have a full set of perfect teeth even if it only temporarily. The only sad part is that I do not know how to smile... as sad as it seems it is true... I have had dental problems since I can remember, root canals on molars at 12-13 and very crooked teeth where my eye teeth were behind my front teeth... so between genetics and poor hygiene this is where I am. So I will update my process as I move forward over the next 3-6 month period.
I went in today for my 2nd visit to take impressions and do all the paperwork and learn about the whole process from a few days before surgery all the way thru until I receive my final bridges in 6 months. We also scheduled my bite records and wax try in teeth on this Thursday and then surgery for Sept 9th. I am looking forward to completing this process and looking towards the end result. I will see about how I can add the before smile photo's. Not sure how to get them to my comp then to here but I am sure to figure it out lol. So far the people of Clear Choice seem to be very nice and caring like you are not just another # but then again they have not taken all my funds yet either. I truly believe that my doctors are more than adequate to do a wonderful job and give me the smile that I have always dreamed of. I will post again soon.
Sorry I have not posted in a while.
Sorry I have not posted in a while. I am doing very well. Having this procedure done was the best thing I have ever done for myself. It was painful for about the first 7 days or so and slowly got better everyday. I received I received my final bridges in April of this year and and wow do they look and more importantly to me is how they feel in my mouth. So real looking... amazing. Now the downside of my final bridges. They look so real and have such good definition that food of all kinds gets stuck in them. I have to carry a toothbrush around to scrub them after meals... and I love the fact that i get to smile in the mirror and have these pearly whites starring back at me. I am a small business owner who relies on selling himself as well as his services and let me say that I have had my best year ever of sales and have paid off the loan for the implants. Another thing that is still kind of weird is using the water pick. It is vital to use as much as possible in the beginning after every meal to keep debris out of the implant sites. 3 weeks after surgery I was eating EVERYTHING ... I wont admit to my dentist but I was eating roasted almonds cashews and every other hard food or candy that i could never eat. Be excited and have fun and good luck. Watch videos on you tube .. it helped me alot.
