Dental Implant Patients Tell Their Story...
LLOYD COX: 56 year old male
"I can eat raw carrots and apples without my gums getting sore. I would eat them before but I'd pay for it. I had to watch what I ate like hard things in a salad. Yes, I would do it again. They fit real tight, I wasn't sure they would, but they do. My lowers fit tighter than the uppers do without Implants."
BRENT HARDER: 47 year old male
"I had worn dentures for 27 years, so the ridge was gone and I didn't have anything for the lower plate to adhere to. It was very uncomfortable eating. I couldn't get a good bite. The one side would flop up, it just wasn't a secure fit. I can eat anything I want now. I can chew better and more solidly. It's just a lot more enjoyable eating now."
When asked if he would do it again, he said: "Yes, I'd do it again. It's more comfortable with Implants than it's been for 27 years."
CAROL THOMPSON: 52 year old female
"I always has a sore mouth. My dentures wouldn't stay in place and I never could chew my food, so I was starting to have stomach problems. I have no problems at all now. The surgery was shorter that I thought. There was some pain afterwards, but not for a long period of time. It was worth every bit of it, and I've never regretted it. I can eat raw vegetables now. I'm always trying to watch my weight, so I can eat raw carrots and corn on the cob, apples without cutting them up and tough meats if I want."
"I never had a permanent tooth there, so cosmetically my smile didn't look so good. It wasn't very painful. My mouth doesn't feel any different with an Implant. Yes, I would do it again if I had to. I told people I had an Implant, but they could not tell which tooth."
CHIRAG JANI: 21 year old male
"For so many years I couldn't eat and now it's a pleasure to eat. I hadn't eaten a salad for six years before I had Dental Implants. I couldn't eat other foods like peanuts which I can eat now!"
When asked if she would do it again, she said: "Definitely, I had very little pain and no swelling that you could notice."
NELLE NICHOLS: 75 year old female
