Full mouth reconstruction

Dr. Matiasevich is very friendly, with an excellent staff and state of the art technology.

Interviewer: Al right. So, this is Wes, one of our favorite patients. Wes, I just want you to let everybody know what your teeth looked like before you came here.

Wes: Actually, my whole mouth was ravaged, I had no front teeth. I had no bottom teeth. My teeth were broken off, stubs at the gum line. I was super sensitive to eating, and I couldn’t smile at all.

Interviewer: Okay. How did that affect you in your life?

Wes: Well, it affected me greatly. I’m in the public a lot as a little league umpire and a coach at the high school. It affected my smile. It certainly affected the foods that I ate. I had to dummy down to mushy bananas instead of regular food.

Interviewer: Yeah, I remember when you came in, you weren’t smiling that much. You had a partial before, right, to try and…

Wes: Yes.

Interviewer: How did that partial work?

Wes: Well, the partial, it didn’t work for me because I have a gag reflex. I always had to take it out when I was tired or sometimes in the middle of the field I had to take it out, hopefully quietly, so people didn’t see. But the gag reflex was there, so it just wasn’t getting it for me.

Interviewer: All right. Well, first of all, you’ve got to show everybody your big smile now with the new ones. There you go. How are the teeth now? How do you like them?

Wes: I love them. It’s a wonderful feeling. A real sense of self-confidence has come back. I can smile. I can represent myself and the things that I believe in much more readily.

Interviewer: Okay, good. So it’s had a big impact on your life then having these new ones.

Wes: Yes, the impact, I’m sure, is just beginning. Like I told Dr. Rob, I have the rest of my life to enjoy and appreciate the work that I’ve had done here.

Interviewer: Oh good, and your wife is happy too, right?

Wes: Yeah, she is.

Interviewer: All right. So why would recommend to somebody else Dr. Bob’s methods here in his office?

Wes: Boy, he has very new methods. I’ve never had the Halo type photography before, x-rays. He’s a very friendly guy with excellent personnel and state of the art technology was available to me and I took it.

Interviewer: All right. So Dr. Matiasevich’s method then worked out well for you.

Wes: Yes, they have.

Interviewer: All right.

Wes: I’m very, very happy.

Interviewer: All right. Well, thanks for your time, Wes.

Wes: Thank you.
