Incredible, isn’t it, if a picture is worth a thousand words, these two pictures are worth at least two thousand words.
I was speaking with my friend, Steve, this weekend and he asked a few questions about Immediate dentures and full mouth extractions. He questioned whether it was a drastic choice and why some one would choose that option. Some people are blessed with healthy teeth and gums, some suffer life long problems, just as some of us are born tall, others short.
This woman presented to my dental office in Palm Harbor, FL earlier this year (2013) wanting upper and lower full dentures. Although I advised against lower full dentures (due to the future expense of dental implants), she was quite insistent. Yes I am the dentist, the professional, but it is her body, her mouth and her (dental) journey. The day before the after picture was taken, she was sedated and I delivered these immediate dentures after extracting 20 teeth.
She is absolutely the most happy person I have ever treated, the day after this type of treatment in my Palm Harbor dentist office. I think she made the right choice, what do you think?
