This last summer I was eating, and I bit down and my tooth just cracked. And I was hoping that maybe we could just get a crown fit on it, but I guess it cracked too far up, and it was just… So, it was really starting to hurt. So I had to get it extracted. Dr. Condie did the extraction, which went great. No problems whatsoever.
And now it has to heal. And so in the healing process, before you can get the actual implant started, you have to let it heal for about, I guess, three or four months. So that’s where I’m at right now. I’m gonna come back and get the implant started. And then they put a crown over the top of that. So you also have the option of doing the bridge, but I would’ve had to crown teeth that were not needing to be crowned.
So I had to kind of go back and forth and figure out if I wanted to have teeth crowned that I didn’t need crowned, or if I wanted to go with just the one implant. And I kind of made the decision with Dr. Condie and talking to him about it that I think the implant was gonna be the best route for me.
Oh, he is been excellent. I mean, before I decided on anything, he sits you down, and he will explain to you the whole procedure, either procedure you want to go to, and he tells you the positives, the negatives. And then if you have any questions, and you always feel like you can just ask him anything. I actually changed my mind.
I was gonna do the route of the crowns, and I went home and thought about it, and I called him back and says, “No, I want to do the other way.” So they had no problem whatsoever with switching with me and working with me to make sure that that’s what I wanted to do.
