Case Study: A Path to Happiness
Today, we’d like to share a story that really drives home the importance of dental health.
Recently, an elderly patient visited our dental clinic complaining of rotten, broken teeth. She felt that her teeth were in bad shape and she wanted them to feel like new again.
We started with a thorough medical and dental history, followed by clinical and radiographic examinations with consent. The clinical and radiographic exams revealed severe dental cavities.
Upon investigation, we learned that the patient was also quite ashamed of her teeth and had a tendency of hiding her beautiful smile from the world.
Our dentists took a holistic approach to provide the very best possible dental treatment for her concerns. We had a thorough discussion with the patient and developed a plan for care and treatment that was tailored to the patient’s needs and requirements. Her plan included some restorative and cosmetic procedures, as well as follow-up appointments to ensure her treatment was successful.
Naturally, all of the teeth that still had hope were restored. Then, we extracted a few teeth that needed to be removed and allowed the area to heal. Once her mouth had healed from the extractions, we surgically placed permanent restorative implants, followed by crowns and bridges. The shade, shape, and contour of the crowns and bridges were meticulously checked to best fit the patient’s desired aesthetics.
The overall treatment was a success as the patient was very cooperative and followed the home care instructions as recommended by the dentist and dental hygienist.
After some time, a follow-up call was made to check in on the patient’s satisfaction. We asked how she was doing and she told us that our treatment was life-changing! Here’s a bit of what she had to say:
“It was the people associated with Dr. Benjamin that made the difference in my life. I was apprehensive. It’s a big deal. But, everybody there made me feel comfortable and confident, and that made it an easy process.” – Royce
Today, she is happy and—most importantly—smiling for all to see!
