Dental Implant Patient Highlight: Chuck
Last updated Monday, March 28th, 2022
Many of our patients come to us looking for a dental implant in Arizona because of missing teeth. Losing teeth at any age is never fun. When you lose teeth, you can lose the ability to eat the foods you love, and worse you can lose a bit of your self-confidence. Whether a patient lost their teeth or tooth to a disease or an accident, it’s always going to be very traumatic. Those with missing teeth have to learn how to eat and to watch what you eat, which can be very frustrating when going out to dinner with friends or family. If you are one of the many people who suffer from a missing tooth or teeth, you understand that even just having the confidence to smile can be difficult.
At Smiles By Hanna, we are always sad to hear our patient’s traumatic stories about life with missing teeth or dentures, and how much they miss eating the food they love. We had a long time patient, Chuck, who had come into our office complaining about a missing tooth.
What are dental implants?
Luckily, his daughter was also a patient and had a similar problem. She had to have two teeth pulled and thankfully was able to have them replaced with dental implants. His daughter talked about how Dr. Hanna Mansoor and her team supported her and explained the procedure to her from start to finish. Chuck’s daughter was extremely happy with how her dental procedure went at our office.
Chuck’s daughter explained to him that not only is Dr. Hanna Mansoor a certified expert in dental implants, but Dr. Hanna and her Smiles By Hanna team put her at ease throughout the whole procedure. Once Chuck heard this, he finally made the appointment and came in for his dental implant consultation.
Before coming to our office, Chuck was nervous about the whole idea of dental implants. The Smiles By Hanna team explained to Chuck the whole procedure from start to finish, and what dental options were available to him. Dr. Hanna Mansoor explained that natural teeth are composed of two essential parts, the crown which is the white part we see when we smile, and the root, which is below the gum line. Our team also taught him about the wonderful man-made devices that are dental implants and the many options they come in. For instance, there are several different styles of implants, single implant, and all-on-four dentures. Informing him that there are also two different materials, zirconium and titanium.
Dr. Hanna Mansoor explained that dental implants are designed from medical grade titanium that will actually fuse with the living bone cells in his jaw and will help keep his gums healthy over time. Dental implants are also biocompatible, meaning each offers a high acceptance rate of about 98% with the body.
The Many Benefits of Dental Implants
Chuck had also told us one thing he was extremely sad about was he could no longer eat his beloved steak. The team clarified to Chuck that dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent anchor for replacing teeth. Dr. Hanna Mansoor explained that there are many benefits to having dental implants. They will feel and act just like his regular teeth. Dental implants are comfortable and the entire procedure can be done in one day. With proper care, the best dental implants can even last a lifetime!
When Chuck realized that he could eat his steak and had support from his daughter, he was on board. Once the procedure was over, Chuck said that the procedure wasn’t that big of a deal and wasn’t painful. Chuck was so happy with the procedure that he will definitely keep coming back to Smiles By Hanna for more procedures. With the single dental implants option, patients are able to eat normally, and smile confidentially because their implants are securely placed! Following his experience at Smiles By Hanna, Chuck said that his single dental implant felt like his actual tooth. He also said that he would absolutely recommend Dr. Hanna Mansoor to his friends and family.
