"To this day, I'm numb. When I was working with him, his staff was nice but he wanted $200. I wanted to discuss the situation. He had people call me at 7:30" in the morning once. He had already been paid for the pulling and the $200 extra I had paid him. He was so adamant about that knowing that I was still in pain, all he was concerned with was the money. The staff was very nice. I wanted to get all my records and X-Rays to go somewhere else. The doctor had always been really nice and almost flirtatious until now and then he was very indignant and threatening.

"This was my first time using her. Scheduling was very easy. She was very quick and thorough. It was very relaxing and the office staff even visited me while the" doctor stepped out of the office. She even worked on her off hours to accommodate my schedule.

Periodontists

People with sore or infected gums often see a periodontist, a dentist who specializes in gum diseases. The most serious gum condition, periodontitis, can cause the teeth to fall out if left untreated.

Gum disease affects many Americans, in particular those in their 30s and 40s. You have several different options available for treating gum disease, from simple at-home methods to professional dental care.

Proper flossing techniques will gently slip between the tooth and gum tissue and remove debris from the pockets, helping prevent gum disease, says Gausmann. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Tina K. of Houston)

Got gum disease? It's common but still not normal for your gums to bleed when you floss or brush your teeth. Your dentist can determine how advanced disease is.

When Jeff first came to me, it wasn’t just his teeth or gums that were bothering him: His constant leg pain meant he couldn’t work as a waiter anymore. But Jeff's orthopedist wouldn’t perform the joint surgery until he got the gum infection under control.

 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.

Periodontia reviews in Little Rock

I have been his patient for over 10 years now and I'm completely satisfied with his work and integrity. When you meet him and his staff, they are always friendly and helpful. The doctor will give you his full attention and time to answer any questions you might have or concerns. He is very knowledge and keeps up with modern dentistry and technology. He also a nutrition program that will keep your teeth healthy for years to come which you can choose to take advantage of if you wish. I, myself, am on this program, and I really do think that supplements make a difference not only in a healthy mouth but also a healthy body. I would recommend this doctor if you are need of a new dentist or just want a second opinion.

They are excellent. They're very thorough. They take all kinds of pictures. He even has an assistant working with him. He was very kind. It didn't hurt either when he gave me the needle. They take new patients. You get to use the Wi-Fi for free. They're A across the board.

Each time I have been to the office, I have not had to wait more than 5 minutes. The hygienist and the dentist are extremely professional. They clearly explain what they are doing and why, and have been very careful to ensure that I do not experience any discomfort. I feel very comfortable with this establishment and plan to use them for many years to come.

She is extremely gentle and scheduling there is great. They will even call to see if you want to come in a little early. Both hygienists I have seen have been gentle and worked with me. They're quick with getting right with you when you arrive and their billing and adminstration is excellent.
