In my work as a dentist, with a specialty in implantology, I have experienced more fulfillment in my chosen profession than I could have ever imagined. Much of that fulfillment comes when I help restore a patient’s smile through the use of implants. What I have learned over the years, is that, yes, their smile is restored. But more importantly, their confidence and joy in living is restored.
I have patients who, when they find me, have not been out of their homes in years because they have lost many or most of their teeth. They cannot chew real food and they are often in pain due to infections. Some people end up this way due to fear of dentists. I consider these patients some of the most courageous people I’ve ever met. It takes courage, after hiding and being in pain for a long time to muster the energy and wherewithal to take action to change such depressing circumstances. And to overcome their fear of dentists.
Implants are the next best thing to real teeth. They look, feel and function like your natural teeth, so you can chew all foods and you can be confident in your smile. Of course, there are other things that can damage a smile. Accidents can leave teeth broken. Sports are notorious for knocking teeth out or breaking them.
Restoring my patients love of life by giving them the ability to express their joy with a big bright smile, is one of the greatest joys of my chosen profession. If you’ve been looking for a way to break out of the isolation that may have been going on for far too long, give my office a call and let’s restore your smile and your confidence and your joy in living.
