Dr. Jeffrey Ganeles explains how one patient found his Boca Raton, Florida office online and flew in from California for fast and easy dental implant treatment.
The implant patients that have the greatest impact on me are the ones who came in petrified and left just amazed at how fast and easy the treatment can be. One of the most dramatic examples is a patient who found me about 2002 on the Internet, which was a feat in itself because the Internet was pretty young at the time and not many patients were looking online. This individual happened to be a computer programmer in Pasadena, California.
He had been told for years that he was losing his teeth. He was only in his early 40s, and every dentist he visited in southern California had told him that he had to lose his teeth, go into dentures and eventually after a long process he could get his teeth replaced with implants and permanent bridges. He did not like that answer, so he did his research and he ran across our website. In the interim he knew he was in trouble because he swallowed two of his teeth in the middle of the night—he woke up in the morning and he was short two teeth.
He called our office to make an appointment, got on a plane, and sight unseen made the trip across the country. When he came to the office I had to anesthetise him just to take impressions, because I was afraid the impression material was going to pull out more of his teeth because they were so loose. Within days we completely replaced all his failing teeth with implants and fixed bridges.
When he left our office he was comfortable. He went out and he got a hamburger and bit into it for the first time in years. I have seen him a couple of times since then and he is just overjoyed at how wonderful that whole process worked out for him.
Since that time, there have been even more advances in implant dentistry. We routinely provide teeth for patients the same day of treatment.
