On Thursday Nov. 6th I went to have an extraction and a cosmetic "fix" until I make an appointment for an implant. I was told to be there before 8am to go on the list and after the Doctor views the x--ray and get a mold of my teeth, I would come back later that day for the extraction. I got there 5 after 8am, and they still politely added me to the list. I was in the waiting room for approximately 30-45 minutes before they called me to the back. They immediately performed an x-ray and sat me in the chair. At some time between checking in and getting the molds, they informed me that they would be extracting immediately that morning. Within 45 minutes, they took an x-ray, created the molds of my teeth, and extracted a broken root canal....and get this!!! It was practically no pain. Prior to the visit, I googled the doctor performing the procedure, and her reviews were really good, therefore I knew that she had a few skills......therefore, I was fairly comfortable with her. As she performed my procedure, she totally restored my happiness with Dental Professionals. She had a nice calming personality, she spoke with confidence and gave me next steps of what I should be feeling during the process. Afterwards, I had very minor bleeding for about an hour or 2. They gave me 800 mg of ibuprofen for pain and they gave a prescription. I have only used 1 pain pill from the prescription and have not had any pains. I will try and remember to check back in to do a week review to see if anything changes. I am totally satisfied, happy, impressed, blessed, ecstatic and more about Dr. Oletha Simmons. I would totally refer her and I am totally happy with my procedure and with my smile. I just hope the implant procedure goes as well.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
