Katie came to our office to see what we could do for her to repair or replace her upper front tooth. She had been to several other dental offices, and wanted to see what we could offer. Katie's natural tooth was beyond the point that it could be saved, so we removed this tooth and an implant was placed. She also elected to bleach her teeth. As you can see, both the bleaching and the implant turned out beautifully. Katie was very happy with the work we did for her.
If someone asked me about getting a dental implant, I would tell them the implant itself is less harmful for your other teeth that other treatment options. Little or no modifications are needed to surrounding teeth.
If a friend were in a similar situation, I would recommend that they have a dental implant. The implants are so real looking and take no more maintenance than your own teeth. This is not the case with some other options.

Snooks came to our office wanting to have his teeth removed and dentures placed. The patient decided to have lower implants placed in order to help with the stability of the lower denture. Snooks now has a set of teeth that are very natural and esthetic looking and that are very functional. He was very happy with the final results of his case.
If someone asked me about getting a dental implant, I would tell them that it would be one of the best things you can do for yourself.
If someone asked if it was worth it to have an implant, I would tell them that you will feel much better about yourself. You will feel like you have your own teeth back before any were missing. You will chew again like they were your own teeth, and you look better.
Having dental implants has affected my life by making me feel better about myself. I can chew better, I look better, and I can't get over how nice they look.

About The Case:
Vicki came to our office with tooth #20 missing and wanted to replace it without damaging her adjacent teeth. Therefore a dental implant was the treatment of choice.
If a friend were afraid of having a dental implant, I would tell them that I used to be afraid of dental procedures because of bad experiences with other dentists in the past. However, the implant surgery is nothing to fear. In fact, I was surprised that the surgery is actually a relatively painless procedure.
If asked about Echo Ridge Dental Clinic, I would say that I am always impressed by them.
Joyce came to our office after fracturing her front bridge. She was very interested in improving the existing cosmetics as well as not having to floss and clean under her bridge. We decided to place one implant to replace her lost tooth and then place all porcelain crowns to improve the cosmetics.
If someone asked me about getting a dental implant I would strongly encourage them to pursue their desire. Have the procedure.
If a friend were afraid of having a dental implant I would say that I, too, had misgivings and sought professional advice. I am truly happy that I made the decision to proceed with the procedure.
Elsie came to us concerned with the condition of her lower teeth. Several of her natural teeth had become abcessed and/or had severe decay. After going over all of her options, Elsie elected to have all of her lower teeth removed and four lower implants placed. After about four months of healing a lower implant bar was cemented and a new lower overdenture was made. Elsie now has a lower denture that fits very securely and that never feels loose or uncomfortable. As you can see, she was very happy with the final results.
