With Dental Implants, Rhonda’s Smile Is Transformed
No one likes having their time wasted -- especially when something like a confident, healthy smile is on the line.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Rhonda had experienced after years and years of going to the same dentist who just wasn’t able to put anything together to fix her smile issues. She was missing teeth and, aside from affecting her ability to eat and speak properly, the gaps in her smile -- while not visible -- were causing her face to sink in and make her look much older than she really was.
It all changed for Rhonda when she received a recommendation to visit Dr. Allan S. Mohr’s office. From the start, she knew this was going to be a different experience -- and, most importantly, that she may have had hope after all.
Dental implants are a comprehensive tooth replacement option that gives patients back the missing tooth’s root structure as well as the visible crown. The only whole-tooth solution, implants promote better oral health and offer a wealth of advantages over other replacement options.
Dr. Mohr was pleased to note that Rhonda was indeed a great candidate for dental implants. She needed to have a bone augmentation procedure first to strengthen her jaw to encourage the anchoring of the implant posts. Partnering with his trusted local oral surgeon, Dr. Mohr helped Rhonda get the specialized care she needed.
Dental implants are not a quick solution, but they are worth the investment in time. First, the implants are placed in an implant surgery. Then they are restored with the prosthetic teeth 4 months later, once the jawbone has fused together with the posts.
The result? Rhonda’s new, sturdy tooth replacement -- and the smile that she loves showing off every chance she gets. Dental implants can last for many years with proper care, and, like all the other patients Dr. Mohr has helped with implant dentistry, Rhonda looks forward to a lifetime of confident smiles.
If you or a loved one are dealing with missing or imperfect teeth, or if you have spent too much time with a dentist who just doesn’t seem to have your best interest in mind, it’s time to visit a specialist that other professionals trust. We invite you to request an appointment with Dr. Allan S. Mohr today!
