A Happy Story for Dental Implant Patients

Our Greensboro, NC area patients know that dental implants can radically change their smiles for the better.We here at our Greensboro, NC practice always love it when we read a feel good story revolving around a well performed dental implant treatment. In fact, we recently read a story that we would actually like to take some time to share with you all today. Today, Dr. Steven Hatcher is blogging to tell a story about a waiter from Wichita, KS whose life was recently changed when a customer gave him the chance to radically change his smile. We encourage you to read on to learn more about just how much dental implants can change your smile for the better.

A Full Smile Makeover with Dental Implants

Brian Maixner is a waiter from Wichita, KS who works at a restaurant called the Doo-Dah Diner. For the longest time, Maixner has suffered from oral infections and missing teeth. While these have both caused him pain, Maixner still tries his hardest to greet every customer with a smile. This last January, a man named Fred Boettcher was passing through and happened to stop at the diner for a meal. Boettcher, who suffered from his own dental issues as a child, took note of Maixner’s condition and decided to leave him the best tip of his career; he left Maixner a $25,000 tip, enough to pay for a complete smile makeover from Boettcher’s dentist back in Oklahoma. Two months later, Maixner has begun his dental implant treatment and is currently sporting a full mouth of teeth. When asked about his treatment, Maixner can only smile and say that he is enjoying his new teeth.

Brian Maixner is restoring his smile using dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are fused to your jawbone, much like your natural teeth. During the procedure, an implant fixture is placed in the empty spot left behind by your missing tooth. While it heals, a process called osseointegration occurs, which works to integrate your implant fixture with your jawbone and gums. This process is only possible because dental implants are made from titanium, which is a metal that has been discovered to not be recognized by the body as an unnatural material. Because of this process, your replacement teeth should never get loose or move out of place because they are held permanently secure by your jaw structure. It is this process that gives dental implants their unprecedented level of comfort and reliability.
