Dental Implant & Bridge

Would you recommend implants to someone else for a missing tooth? Yes. It is not painful and they are very comfortable.

Interviewer: All right. So, Ed, you had a bridge over on the upper left side of your mouth, correct?

Ed: Correct.

Interviewer: It broke. We had to take one of the teeth out, and you decided to put a couple of implants there, correct?

Ed: Correct.

Interviewer: All right. The day you got the implants in, how was the whole procedure?

Ed: The final day?

Interviewer: The day we put the implants in. Was it painful? Was it uncomfortable?

Ed: It isn’t.

Interviewer: Okay.

Ed: It wasn’t for me anyway.

Interviewer: Okay. So it was pretty easy, having the implants put in?

Ed: Oh yeah.

Interviewer: Okay. I know you had to wait a little bit of time before we could put a new bridge on those implants, but now that that’s in, how is it feeling?

Ed: I can tell the difference. It’s smoother.

Interviewer: Okay.

Ed: The template as I call it was rough. And it really collected quite a bit of food, like bread and so forth. But this is very smooth.

Interviewer: Okay. Did it feel like you have your natural teeth back over there?

Ed: Yeah, I guess it is, because I’m not aware of any difference. It’s very comfortable.

Interviewer: Okay, good. So would you recommend an implant to somebody else if they were missing a tooth?

Ed: If they’re willing to do it, yes. It’s just not painful. That’s all. It’s inconvenient sometimes the digging around, but outside of that that’s the only…I wouldn’t even call it a problem. It’s a fact.

Interviewer: All right.

Ed: I know you have to clean out the glue and particles.

Interviewer: All right. Well, good. Thanks for telling me that, Ed.

Ed: Okay.
