"When I arrived at the office, I did not even sit down to read a magazine before being called back. He looked at the tooth and said it was not as bad as it felt." He informed me completely as to what he would do on that visit. His office person had already called my insurance to get clearance on what I would need. I was so thankful because being a holiday weekend, I would have had unnecessary pain. He is without a doubt very knowledgeable and trustworthy. Hard to find that today in a world where dentists make more money than surgeons.

" I was referred to Dr.
when I told my internist I was interested in decreasing my snoring. I got an appointment quickly. The office had asked" me to bring in the results of a previous sleep study, which Dr.
looked at along with a dental X-
to determine if he could help me. He spoke with me at length about the treatment, his history, and how the appliance his office builds compares to CPAP machines (machines that help snorers by maintaining continuous positive air pressure in the airway). I never felt rushed or pressured. The assistant took molds of my teeth that day. I came back a week or two later to get fitted for the appliance itself, which they had built in the meantime. The appliance is basically two plastic retainers, one upper and one lower. They are not attached; your jaw is held forward by small pegs that engage when you close your mouth. You can talk and drink while wearing it. There was a small fitting problem with the upper retainer on the day I arrived. Dr
, who was attending this time, told me that since the technician was in the office that day, she wanted to get the top part remade instead of sending me away for another week. I appreciated that. With everything in place, I went home for the trial. The results were very good. My wife says that instead of literally rattling the pictures on the walls with my snoring, I go most nights without snoring at all. Occasionally, I will still have nights where I snore, but much more lightly than before. When we travel as a family now, I no longer keep everyone else in the hotel room awake. That's a big deal. Personally, I felt much more rested after I started wearing the appliance. My father also has a mild sleep apnea, like me, but he uses a CPAP. I can tell you that traveling with a 3-ounce pair of retainers, in a container that fits in your pocket, is a lot easier than hauling around even a small CPAP machine. My dad's doctor (in another state) had also tried an appliance, but apparently it was much bulkier, of thicker, softer plastic, and it locked his whole jaw together. Dr.
' design is much superior in my
's opinion. I was lucky, in that my insurance covered basically everything. If insurance doesn't cover this, it could be pricey–maybe a few hundred dollars. I went back after a few months to have a followup sleep study done. The office sent me home with a little device called a Watch-PAT, which does most of the work of a full-on, in-lab sleep study, but in your own bed at home. The results of this study confirmed my family's experience. If you want to lick snoring, I suggest stopping by Dr.
' office and seeing if he can help you like he did me.

Prosthodontics/dentures

Missing, discolored, chipped or broken teeth can seriously affect your smile, dental health and self-confidence. A dentist specializing in prosthodontics can restore or replace your missing teeth.

If you need false teeth, a denturist or prosthodontist should be able to fit you with comfortable and affordable dentures to match your needs and budget.

If you are missing several teeth, or considering a full or partial denture, your best option is implant supported dentures, says Petrusha. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

Avoid a gap-toothed smile with modern dental implants. Better than bridges or dentures, implants can replace a lost adult tooth both in fashion and function.

Crowns are considered a common dental procedure. Gathering information about this treatment option prior to visiting a dentist may empower a consumer to make the best decision for their own oral health.

 I am familiar witht he ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers across the country, in particluar, the one in Overland Park, KS.  They are a "one stop" implant center.  The doctors there are at the top of their field, and an advantage is that you have all of the specialists that will be working with you in the same place.  That would have to make communication easier between doctors.  They usually offer seminars for patients and I think, offer free consultations, which is always worthwhile.

  If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it.   Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials.  Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.

The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.

The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
:
.1.  You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications.  Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.

2.  Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed?  Have they had any major complications with any cases?  Ask to see photos if possible.

3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.

4. Follow your instincts.  If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.

5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options.  If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list.  Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps.  You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.

I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

As a  Dentist, I am sorry to hear about your denture nightmare and I know how frustrating that can be.  I am surprised that your doctor wasn't willing to work with you on some type of solution.  A few options would be either remaking the dentures once more,  or offering to return some of the money and have you return the dentures.   Unfortunately, the doctor has put in a lot of their time and lab expenses, but the patient also  has time and money invested.  You might try sending a letter re-explaining the problems you hand and offering an acceptible and fair solution.  Be sure to keep a copy of it and any correspondence you receive from the Dental Office.  In the event that you don't get anywhere, you have documentation of the problem. 

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up?  Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed.  At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense. 

If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area.  I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA.  Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board  (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.)  This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state.  They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself.   After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.  

As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school.  The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals.  Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price. 

I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Denture Care reviews in Tucson

Rating
The work on the partial has gone on for several months and was for a fixed price. But Dr.
Tucson Prosthodontists Provider Name Locked
has taken infinite care and time in order to get it exactly right. This is in the same manner he has handled all other procedures for me and other members of my family for the past several years. He and everyone in the office is caring and professional. By far the best dentist experiences I've ever had!
