Read Lynne’s Story
Hi, my name is Lynne and I live in Bethel, Pennsylvania and I’ve had dental issues all of my life and finally ran into a point where I needed to have a permanent solution. I had several permanent bridges in my mouth and the teeth anchoring them were failing so I needed to have something done.
I did a lot of research on the internet to see what my options were for a permanent solution because I was not interested in dentures. I knew I would not be able to tolerate them and in the sights that I researched, I came across By Design Dental and I was impressed with the training and the experience of the team here so I decided to come for my initial consult. Once I came here I knew I chose the right place. Everybody was professional; they were very friendly. I have a health care background so I asked a lot of questions and everyone answered them fully. I did have an All-on-4® in the upper and had several implants put in the bottom jaw. The care here is tremendous. Everybody is friendly and they’re professional and one thing I appreciate: they are a team. They function very well as a team, but the patient is included as part of that team.
Since I’ve had my procedure done I don’t even notice that my All-on-4® is in. It just seems like regular teeth to me, and the thing that most surprised me was the recovery. They go over the instructions with you. They’re very simple to follow and if you do them, you will recover very quickly. I really didn’t have what I would call pain. On a scale of 1-10, my level was 1 or 2 so I breezed right through it. I can’t say enough for the people out here, the physicians and the staff. I would recommend anybody come here to get their permanent solution to dentures. I just could not deal with dentures.
I feel like I have regular teeth. I’m able to eat what I want. I smile, I laugh, I talk. I’m not aware of the teeth. I’m not self-conscious. I’m happy. I’m healthy. I’m confident. The main thing is I’m not worried about my dental work anymore because it’s all behind me. If you’ve had as many dental procedures over the course of your life as I have had, knowing that you have a permanent solution is all the peace you need because I’ve struggled with dental work since I was a child.
When my friends ask questions, they are all very interested because they knew I was having it done. They had never heard of it so I told them. I explained the procedure to them and I explained the temporary prosthesis that you get and then when I had my permanent one they were all waiting to see and they said, “we didn’t even notice you had your permanent one in.” People are curious. I think if more people than myself were looking for permanent solutions I would tell them to pick By Design Dental.
If you’re worried about pain, there really isn’t any and I was surprised. I really expected to have some pain after the procedure, but like I said, on a scale of 1-10 it was a 1 or a 2 and if you’re on the fence, come in here and talk to them. Get your questions answered and feel to give me a call. I am very satisfied and so happy I had this done.
