Al – Multiple Implants
Hi. My name is Al. For a number of years, ever since I was in my younger years, 8, 9, 10, 11 years old, I’ve been grinding my teeth. It has been going on throughout the years. I used to crack walnuts with my teeth and chew on ice cubes. Needless to say, that probably didn’t help my dental issues throughout my life. Further on, as time has gone by, I’ve had some dental problems with my upper teeth and my lower teeth. Ultimately, my teeth were getting loose. I had ground those down to nubs. They looked like tiny pieces instead of teeth. So I saw Dr. Tamucci, and he felt that my best option would be to get implants to replace the problem that I was having with the gums and teeth. So he recommended that I come see Dr. Sonick for a consultation. Dr. Sonick felt that it would be a good idea to have the implants done,and we decided the course of action would be to work on getting implants done to take care of the loose teeth. Having my teeth done has been very good for me. I can eat things that I haven’t been able to eat with just the dentures that I had. Now that I have the implants in and the dentures put in place, it is such a pleasure. I have a removable one, so I could easily take it out, clean it and snap it back in, and that works great. I can eat anything I want. It’s back to eating food that I really didn’t want to have before. Coming here was pleasurable, actually. When I walked in the door, everybody welcomed you in the door. It’s like coming home to visit a friend’s house, or family. They’re pleasant, they’re kind, they try to help you any way they can.
