Boston Full Mouth Reconstruction for 30 Year Old Patient
Perhaps you are quite surprised that a 30 year old would need multiple root canals, extractions, gum treatment, fillings and a full mouth of crowns and bridges but it is quite common. Factors that contribute to this include poor diet, lack of care, poor homecare and god given soft teeth. These people are embarassed and ashamed.
Typically, they call and ask for implants figuring that all is hopeless. Almost always they have a worse perception of their condition than what is real. WHen they learn that they can get their teeth back in 6 weeks, and 5 or 6 appointments they can not wait to begin. Often, they have gotten other opinions and heard one year, three different specialty practices etc. We try to give them a solution that makes sense allowing them to go forward.
At each of the 5 to 6 appointments they see real improvement. Their confidence increases at every visit which my staff and I are proud of. THe ultimate compliment comes after one year when they often bring us gifts. For me, this means we did our job.
The photos at the top of this blog show what we did for this patient. Please try to understand how much this would mean to someone that needs it. We believe that we are blessed to be able to do this for people.
