As I stated in my previous post, I have been rather busy the last few months so I really haven’t posted anything on this blog. It’s time though I updated ya’ll about my dental implant journey. To recap, over three years ago I had periodontal disease and some teeth missing so I had to have extractions and get dentures. At that time I opted for the all of four plan on the bottom which is a denture supported with four implants. It worked out great never had even one problem.
Two years ago I wanted implants on the top. I was afraid of bone loss. My prosthodontist placed six instead of four because at that time he felt the bone was a little soft at the time. Well to make a long story short, those implants never integrated so he had to remove them. Fast forward currently, I had replaced the implants that failed with new ones at the end of June. After a few months of healing, in October I had a scan that showed the current implants were integrating with the bone. These ones are more successful. Last week I went in and had them exposed. Now I’m healing from that getting ready for the final prosthesis.
It’s been quite a process that has tried my patience at times. There have been ups and downs but one thing I can say I’ve learned many things dental related and hope to help others going through similar situations. I went through this for a reason and hopefully through my experience I can help ease a lot concern others out there may have. I don’t know maybe I will devote a separate blog just dealing with dental issues.
