Dental Implants: Michael’s Story of Dental Implants After Chemotherapy


Well, what happened was I had tonsil cancer,
and the radiation and the chemotherapy, after four months in the hospital, destroyed my
teeth. They turned yellow, they started rotting from the bottom and they were breaking, they
were falling out. It was an embarrassing situation. And to sit at a meal and have a tooth break
so I made the decision that I needed to have them replaced. I went to the dentist and he
recommended instead of doing one tooth at a time, getting them all done at once. So
I got on line and did research and found Eon Clinics.
I had talked to a few different dentists and I went in to see them and I was really happy
when I got there, I saw their offices and met their staff. I sat down with the doctors
and we talked and discussed the procedures. They were very open about how they do and
even what could go wrong in a procedure. And that impressed me. They took the time. I went
in and I came back with my wife and they took about 2 hours to go through everything each
time we were there. So that was pretty impressive that they weren’t rushing you through, weren’t
asking you for a check, because it is an expensive procedure, and that made me feel very, very
comfortable with them. The procedure takes one day, which is unbelievable.
You go in the morning, you’re out in the afternoon you have new teeth, of course you’re
not eating anything real solid right away but they heal quickly and you have your smile
back. And there’s no, really no pain involved. It was a pleasant experience when you talk
about going to the dentist and having so much work done.
I got there about 6:30 in the morning. I went into the room about a quarter to seven or
seven. I was out for 90 percent of the procedure. I woke up, my teeth were in. I waited to come
off the anesthetic. My wife came, picked me up. Went home and took a nap. It was pretty
easy. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the process and how easy they made it
for me. The nurses were great the doctors were great. There were even two other dentists
that came in that day to watch his procedure so I knew that they were doing a good job
because we had some spectators out there. I was at the 2 level. Mild discomfort for
a couple days. Nothing that was unbearable. No bleeding nothing of that nature. No worse
than going in and having a single implant. And I had had that done before. So no better,
no worse. An easy process and when you think that you’re walking out with 12 new teeth
on the bottom and 12 new teeth on the top you would think there would be more pain involved
and there really wasn’t. They feel good. I’m very happy with them.
I’m able to eat. I’m able to eat just about anything. We’re having steak for lunch
today and I’m very happy about that. I’m not worried that they’re gonna crack that
they’re gonna break, they’re very easy to maintain. I couldn’t be happier. I’m
still working so I’m out in the field you don’t want to worry about your teeth. You’ve
got enough to worry about outside of that. Friendly. Very accommodating. I got calls
that night, the next day and the following night to make sure I was alrightI didn’t
expect them to call and check on me and see hey is there anything wrong, sdo you need
to come back in. Everything that the doctors had explained to us that they were gonna do,
they did, which made both my wife and myself very happy. Do it. That’s my advice. The more you think
about it the harder it becomes. If you can afford it, then you need to do it. It makes
your life so much easier I know when I go to my general practitioner and I go in there
he always says to me are you taking care of your teeth, how’s your mouth, any problems
and that really moves to the fact that it’s preventative medicine to take care of your
teeth and it helps the rest of your body.
