I had my dental implant surgery completed on January 15th of 2008. Dr. Corbett’s office at the time was located on 10th street and the procedure went very smoothly. Initially I took 3 days off of work to let the healing process begin following the procedure. There were no fears that I had about dental implant therapy. Upon learning that I would not been a good candidate for dentures in the long term it only made sense for me to improve my appearance by working on my original teeth. The procedure was not uncomfortable however the first few weeks I had to be concerned about the cold weather outside and made sure I did the proper rinsing of my mouth to make sure the healing process continued.
The recovery time took a few weeks and it was actually a few months before a temporary fitting could take place and then a permanent fixture. Working in conjunction with dentist Dr. Margaret Choy I was eventually able to add crowns to my upper teeth and along with the dental implant work it gives me a very confident smile.
I continue to have cleaning and check ups at Dr. Corbett’s office every 3 to 4 months and the treatment and surroundings is always first class and very professional. I would definitely recommend dental implants to a friend or family member.
One of the reasons that I began visiting Dr. Corbett’s office was because I was suffering from bleeding gums. However since my treatment began there that situation has been corrected and my dental health continues to improve with regular visits.
