Long before I got the implant, Dr. Cuevas was monitoring a bacteria that was growing beneath the tooth. He was saying, “Hmm, you know, we’re gonna keep an eye on this. We’re gonna try to do this or we’ll try to do that.” At a certain point, it became something that just had … I had to have the tooth taken out and then an implant. And he talked with me about different options, some of which were cheaper but in the long run more awkward, and some that were more expensive but in the long run a whole lot easier to maintain. We settled on what it was that we were gonna do, and finally he went ahead and did that and then monitored afterwards that the bacteria was not still continuing to grow there, that it really had solved the problem.
After the implant, I don’t remember exactly how long it took for the recovery process to take place, which is a good thing. I don’t remember any pain associated with it other than painkiller wears off in the doctor’s office, but you have some painkillers to take home, and I didn’t hardly use them at all because there wasn’t a whole lot of pain associated with it.
There’s a little bit of an adjustment period when you get any kind of crown or implant because it just feels slightly different from the way your teeth normally would feel. But once that adjustment period is over, it feels just like your teeth.
I’m not aware, ever, of, “Oh, I’ve got some crowns,” or “I had some implants,” because they don’t feel any different from the rest of my teeth.
I’m completely satisfied with the implant that I had. In terms of what the alternatives were, I’m delighted that I don’t have to think about it, I don’t have to do anything about it, it’s just there and it’s permanent and it’s over.
