Sara’s Dental Implant Story

Sara was a pleasant woman in her 60s who found our practice while researching dental implants online at our website, She wanted to replace her back lower jaw teeth, which had been removed 15+ years ago. Sara was informed that because a considerable amount of time had elapsed since her extractions, her upper jaw teeth located above the missing teeth had dropped down to the point that they were nearly touching the gums in her the lower jaw.

Sara could tell that her upper teeth looked longer in the mirror, but she didn’t know why. Unfortunately her upper teeth had to be removed and then replaced, in addition to replacing her lower teeth, to correct her bite and restore her ability to chew. The added expense of replacing her upper teeth could have been avoided if she had replaced her lower teeth in a timely fashion.

However, because of dental implants, Sara is now able to chew her food, improve her digestion, eat what she wants, and no longer be embarrassed about her appearance. We are happy we could help Sara improve her quality of life. Contact Advanced Periodontics in Hamden and New Haven today. It is never too late to achieve good oral health.
