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, www.hamdenperio.com. 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 her 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, along with replacing her lower teeth, to correct her bite. The added expense of replacing her upper teeth could have been avoided if she had replaced her lower teeth in a timely fashion.
