How TeethXpress Changed My Life: Carly’s Story
Getting a new smile has made all the difference in Carly’s life. The naturally upbeat 39-year-old had always been known for her great smile.
That is, until her teeth started to fail. “And then I stopped smiling,” she told TeethXpress magazine.
But thanks to the BioHorizons dental implant system, this bubbly blonde is lighting up the room again. “When I saw my new teeth for the first time, I couldn’t stop smiling. I was so happy — I almost started crying,” she said.
Carly struggled with poor teeth all her life. “My teeth have always been bad, ever since I was a little kid,” she explained.
When she was a baby, medicine for a high fever damaged her dental enamel and caused discoloration of her teeth. “Probably eating a lot of candy didn’t help!”
“I was starting to get really insecure,” Carly said. “I wouldn’t smile anymore. I was really not feeling very good about myself.”
Could I be a candidate for dental implants?
After getting five implants to support a custom-made set of new upper teeth, Carly is ecstatic that she no longer has to worry about dental pain and tooth decay. And she loves her new smile!
“Over the years, I just remember having a lot of dental pain. Eating was difficult. I’d have to eat more with my front teeth, so that was wearing those down quicker too because they were working more.”
Carly had a lot of dental work done over time, including cavity treatment, bridges, root canals. With her teeth extremely decayed and causing constant pain, Carly was unhappy with her quality of life and appearance.
She got to the point in her life where she needed to fix her teeth. After a consultation with a Certified TeethXpress doctor, she opted for dental implant treatment.
The actual process of getting dental implants wasn’t difficult at all, according to Carly. “I mean, the whole process was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be.”
She left the dentist’s office with a beautiful set of teeth that were attached to the implants on the same day as the implant surgery. The first time she saw her new teeth in the mirror, she couldn’t believe how great they looked. “I was really emotional.”
“Having dental implants has made me feel better about myself. And I look better when I smile.”
Because dental implants feel so natural, people often forget they have them. This is true for Carly, who said she doesn’t even think about hers — they feel like her own teeth. Now she can eat anything and has no more sensitivity to cold. She loves not having to worry about her teeth anymore and said she would recommend the procedure to others.
