A few years ago I had a lady who had removed almost all of her teeth. We replaced a denture in her mouth. She's been wearing a denture for three or four years and she's never really fell in love with it which is sometimes we find that to be the case because you tend to have to think about what you're eating. You're certainly limited in terms of what you can eat.
I usually tell patients that some dentures are about 25% as functional as natural teeth. You think about that from a quality of life standpoint and it really can effect your ability to function and chew. Of course what is the most embarrassing thing is say when the teeth are falling down when you're speaking or opening your mouth and you're out in public and eating, that can be very frustrating.
This lady finally said I'm done with this. I really want to go through and have implants placed and have something that stays in my mouth that I don't have to take out and put them on my bedside table. We were able to have her go through the evaluation process and the planning process for three dimensional planning. She was able to come in. We placed several implants. We were able to get her a smile that day. When she left after being here for a few hours and us going through that surgery, she was crying she was so happy.
That's one of the most rewarding things for me is being able to instantly create that gratification for the patient and not let it be this drawn out process. She essentially came in with no teeth or at least having removable teeth and left having fixed teeth that don't come out at all. She could smile confidently, go eat what she wants to eat. It's a really cool thing to offer people.
