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