Injury 1 Treatment Center
Stand by me.........I have been with Injury One for many years and will be with them for most likely for a couple more years. I have to say from a patient's point of view WC is extremely frustrating at times and requires patience. WC not only frustrates patients it ties the hands of the employees working within it's guidelines. I personally have fought for my health care and Injury One has stood beside me in getting me every bit of care I deserve and need. I have watched the clinic's employees deal with patient needs with a caring and compassionate attitude in a very difficult WC system. As for my care they have always supported me in good and bad times I have had in this long and difficult journey and will support me as long as I need them. I appreciate the compassion I have been shown from the doctors, management and front line employees. To hear "how are you feeling" to smiles and just to talk with professionals who understand what I go through on a daily basis. These little things I see done not only with me but with others I watch when at the clinic. My daughter and especially my granddaughters would put their stamp of approval to the clinic for helping their dad/granddad to cope with a extremely difficult situation my accident did to change my life. My story is just one of many difficult stories dealt with inside the walls of the clinic. I am just glad for the support, compassion and professionalism I have been shown and would not be with the quality of life I have without the whole staff of Injury One.Thank you!

I had 10 cavities, but apparently the four on the bottom are very small so we caught them early (yay). The ones up top not so much. I've get three dental dates, and I just had my first (upper right side, next will be upper left then finally all the bottom ones) done yesterday. Needless to say I was nervous, I've had cavities done before, my first without anything to numb, the second (well, second time was two cavities) I started off with nothing but I caved and did the novocaine since I was just about to cry (I dislike needles but doc managed to do the injection without me noticing so favorite dentist bar was set high). The hygenist walked in and very kindly asked if I wanted NOS today. I thought you couldn't drive if you had it but she explained that wasn't the case, explained how that worked and said it would help with my nervousness and that if I didn't like it we could stop using it at any time. The whole time they were doing fillings (four, on three teeth) they explained what they were doing and if they noticed I was tensed up or twitching they asked if I was okay or if I was in pain

I have never been so impressed by any dentist in my life. We took our 3 year old for his first cleaning a couple of weeks ago. The appointment started on time, if not a few minutes early. The entire staff was incredibly patient and kind to my son and he actually seemed to enjoy the visit. We were scheduled to return for 2 fillings which we did last week. Once again the appointment started on time if not early. We didn't have to wait at all, which if you have a 3 year old you know that can make it even more difficult. Just like the first visit the entire staff was very patient and kind to our son, as if they were treating their own son. The fillings went well and did not take long at all. I would recommend this office to anyone, especially if you have small children. My wife and I are very impressed and pleased with the staff at Saddle Creek Dental! Thanks y'all!

Steven T. Cutbirth DDS
When I first visited Dr. Cutbirth, he and I sat down together and discussed my entire dental condition. He took scientific photographs of my teeth and we reviewed the photographs together. Dr. Cutbirth told me that he was like a "home remodeler;" certain procedures need to be completed before others. If we didn't look at the "entire house" together, "we might hang wallpaper and then have to tear it out if the wiring needed replacing in the wall." This made total sense to me. Dr. Cutbirth worked up several treatment options and we decided upon a 3 phase treatment plan. The office Chief of Staff helped me secure Care Credit financing. Part of the recommended treatment involved placing some porcelain crowns. These crowns are works of art! The dental lab in Chicago that Dr. Cutbirth uses is outstanding. I have completed my treatment and feel like a new person!

Before I became a patient in Dr. Cutbirth's dental office, I used to skip going to the dentist regularly because I just plain hated going. Then I became a heart patient. As we continue to learn, dental health is important not only for our teeth, but for our heart health. Keeping teeth clean keeps bacteria out of the bloodstream. So my avoiding the dentist was a really bad idea as a heart patient. That is why I am so glad I found the office of Dr. Steven Cutbirth, because I actually enjoy going here! Dr. Cutbirth and his staff make the whole dental experience a pleasure. Dr. Cutbirth takes the time to explain the entire procedure before the day even gets there when you need to have something more than a cleaning done. I believe that there simply is not a better dental office out there.

It is the personal touch that makes having Dr. Cutbirth as my dentist so special. On my first visit, he took the time to get to know me and find out about my lifestyle before examining my teeth. After taking scientific photographs and radiographs, we then discussed a plan for my treatment. At each visit since, he has been professional, yet friendly and warm. Dr. Cutbirth is certified in I.V Sedation for all dental procedures. This was a big benefit to me, since I am prone to panic attacks. Dr. Cutbirth is really patient and always makes sure I am ready, comfortable and relaxed before beginning each stage of the treatment. He also makes sure that I fully understand what is involved. I recommend Dr. Cutbirth and his office to anyone seeking the highest quality dentistry.

I had gotten my teeth cleaned by the good doctor, it had been two years and I was already there for fillings so it seemed like I should probably do it anyways. He was incredibly attentive, when he noticed how much I flinched when he was using the spinning, grinding tool he asked if it hurt (no, its the noise, the noise hurts) and asked if I'd like him to use a different tool. Seeing as I'm an adult who didn't want to seem like a pansy I told him I'd be fine and that I just wanted to get this done with. He did a little bit more but then switched to manual tools after a minute without saying anything else and talking about how he has to get his teeth cleaned with manual tools too and he normally gets it done with NOS. He really made me feel like less of a loser.

For me, the best thing about visiting Dr. Cutbirth's office is his holistic approach to treating his patients. Myself, my husband and our three children are all patients of Dr. Cutbirth. He doesn't just wait until somebody has a cavity and then treat it. Instead, he talks about factors that affect dental health, such as diet and dental hygiene. He has highlighted several foods to me that I was completely unaware are bad for the teeth and I now avoid these.He discusses preventative measures so that we can look after our teeth and will need less treatment. Mainly, we just see Dr. Cutbirth for check - ups because our dental health is good this is predominantly due to Dr. Cutbirth's excellent advice.

I had recently developed a sharp pain on a particular tooth, the result of a crack, an incident while chewing and probably age related (now 63). A previous dentist recommended an implant and referred me to another dentist because he personally did not do implants. I did not feel comfortable with the referral. A friend of mine told me about Dr. Cutbirth's practice. I first interviewed, shared history and received a comprehensive examination. He laid it all out on the table, pictures of my mouth, perceived problem areas, probable causes and recommendations for treatment. The costs were outlined, options discussed and at no time did I feel coerced into the direction of my treatment.
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.
