We love sharing these follow up stories to show you how happy patients are at every stage in the recovery process. In past blog posts, we’ve talked to patients who are still happy with their dental implants decades after they came to Coastal Jaw Surgery.
Today, we’ll share a follow up interview with a traditional dental implants patient, Jim, just 10 days after his procedure. Even though Jim hadn’t received his permanent new teeth at the time of this interview, he had already experienced vast improvements in quality of life and self confidence. In this interview, Dr. Pikos catches up with Jim shortly after his dental implants procedure at Coastal Jaw Surgery.
Dr. Pikos: How do you feel overall?
Jim: I feel very good. It has not been traumatic at all. It’s been an easy process.
How was the procedure for you? Do you remember anything?
I don’t remember much except that you made me very comfortable. You gave me some of that “twilight” that put me under just a little bit, and the next thing I knew I was waking up with teeth in my mouth. It was a wonderful experience, really.
How do you feel about your teeth?
Well, it’s a whole new life. Now I can smile without putting my hand over my face.
And you know this is just the first set of teeth.
These aren’t the final ones.
Yes. It’s amazing.
So you feel a little bit different about yourself already?
Well, yeah. I don’t have any pictures of myself and my grandkids with me smiling, so it’s going to be nice to do that.
Looks like the kids will have a new grandpa!
They already do. They all wanted to see how Papa looked. They’re all happy with it.
Were you with them for Easter?
It was a very nice holiday.
Well, you’ve been a great patient, and I look forward to taking care of you ongoing. We’ll be looking at the lower jaw next. You’ll have a complete set of new teeth–upper and lower.
It’s a miracle really. A blessing really. I can’t thank you enough.
