Why Did You Come to Dr. Mathur?
Well, when I needed an implant, my regular dentist recommended that I go to Dr. Mathur because he thought highly of her.
So, he said, “You don’t have to look for anyone else, just go here.”
What Was the Consultation Process Like?
I was put at ease as soon as I came here. Everyone is very nice—the front desk, the nurses, and Dr. Mathur. Everyone is very nice and professional. I had more worries, like how are they going to go way back there to drill. I couldn’t believe they can do this. She told me what she will do to the bone and thread it and place the implant and fix it. I was told exactly what was going to happen.
Describe Your Implant Surgery
The surgery was painless. As I said before, I have a very small mouth, so I don’t know how they could get back there to do all the drilling. The only thing I remember about the surgery was the doctor said, “open your mouth.” Other than that, it went very, very good. I don’t even know if its there right now.
How Has the Dental Implant Changed Your Life?
Since the implant I tried to eat things that I was scared of before, or at least I used to bite from the other side. Now I don’t even think about it. I can bite from here or any place. It is good that the implant technology is really advanced now. Ten years ago it was a different story— just like my original teeth!
