I spent most of my life passionately studying all aspects of complex, “big problem” dentistry. After 30 years, it isn’t complex for me. You probably don’t know what you need, but you certainly know if you have a disaster in your mouth. I lay out your options with and without dental implants.
Ok so just introduce yourself. Hello my name is Ed. So Ed how did you feel about going to the dentist in your experiences before coming to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo? Well before I went I was scared, I did not know what to expect, and then the first thing I had done was a root canal, and then after that – I was I had another thing done with Dr. Stephen Matarazzo’s father. From then he referred me and I was still sacred to show up until I had one of my teeth fixed and I felt accountable in going. Then he gave me different options, to do and I waited it out and I was trying to hold out as much as I can to save my teeth and get to the point where I could not even chew spaghetti anymore. I had a couple of things done and I had to make up a decision, so I decided to have it done and I was still scared – it was a long process, but now, I feel great, I feel better – I smile and I am more outgoing and I feel much better, and hat is the best thing I have ever done – it is the best thing I have invested in next to my house – it is right up there. Okay Ed so here is your after picture. Wow! Amazing right? Wow really what do you think about that? It is great, really great – compared to before? Oh I would not not be smiling before. Oh yeah? That is amazing – I would never be smiling. You look great, good job! Yeah that is weird; I usually never smile like that even before. Yeah you cover up your mouth not like now.
Hello this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and this is one of our friends Anne and she is here to tell you a little bit about her experience here and how did you find this Anne? How did you find out office? Oh my younger son he was here before he makes the implant so I asked him where to go do the important and he told me – he said just got o Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, he told me that. And he’ll take care of you. Yes. So here is a picture of what you looked like before we started, right there what do you think of that? Terrible! Well you didn’t know the difference and no dentist really le you know what was happening. And then you go to that – look so much better. Yeah, now you are not embarrassed – yeah. I can smile now! You are smiling in that picture! Look at it up close, a nice smile! Oh yes! So you are glad you came to see us? Oh yeah – I am so glad – but it costs a lot of money – you are absolutely right. Yeah, it cost a lot of money and nowadays everything cost a lot of money – I understand that. It is crazy I agree with you a hundred percent, but it was a lot of fun meeting you and taking care of you. Thank you! Sometimes it costs a little more money it is fine, at least I am very happy! Exactly – perfect. It worth it! Yeah – sometimes you do small money but you are not happy, right. So this is the most imprint thing you had a lot of things done, implants, crowns – I could not have said it better. I am so happy! Alright perfect.
Hi, this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo and we have one of our relatively new patients here – Michelle. And she had agreed to share a little bit about her experience with us. Thanks Michelle. I have been having pain in my jaw for align time I have had problems with TMJ and I have been to many dentist about it – who were not able to help me or suggest anything probably from Dr. Stephen Matarazzo he suggested I get a night guard. The main problems that I was having that made me want to get the night guard was the pain in my jaw – my jaw as locked, and I had really bad migraines, I ground my teeth at night, and I was awaking up all the time with migraines and I could not get them to go away. So after talking with my husband we decided that day to go ahead and get the night guard and I am so glad that I did – from the minute I put it on I decided to wear it as much as I possibly could – at home, driving in the car, sleep-in at night – and I noticed a huge difference already. My jaw has not been locking up and I don’t feel that pain first thing in the morning, and I don’t get as may migraines. I did mention to Dr. Stephen Matarazzo I did forget it a couple of nights and I regretted it the next morning. I woke up and of course my jaw was locking it was really tense, my husband said I was grinding again at night and of course I had a migraine and I won’t be forgetting anymore and I really enjoyed it and I am looking forward to keep wearing it and seeing the difference it made for me, it’s only been a couple of weeks, and it is making a huge difference already. Thanks Michelle thank you.
Hi this is Dr. Stephen Matarazzo – one of our patients Wendy is nice enough to agree to share a couple of ideas and personal stories with us. Ok well I had a terrible time with my implants that I had put in about probably 5 6 years ago, they became infected and uncomfortable and you had to remove them and because I lost a lot of bone and it was tricky when placing new implants so i could chew so i went almost a year without being able to chew. So through the healing process and one step at a time I have my bottom and my new uppers to match the bottoms, I am thrilled and I am very comfortable. Now you have only finished last week – only a week and what do you eat now? I actually had corn on the cobb this weekend for the first time in years. it has been 5 years since you have been managing with this. Yeah very comfortable they don’t move and they don’t shift in and out. Amazing – yes well thank you Wendy! I am glad you had a good success story.
When good teeth go bad
When you were growing up, maybe your parents did the best they could for you but couldn’t afford top quality dentistry. Maybe your teeth were just pulled. Maybe you went to dentists who didn’t care, didn’t know, or both. Maybe your brothers and sisters got the good smiles, and you were born with “soft” teeth. Or maybe you have congenitally missing permanent teeth. Whatever the combination of causes, I can help. I have never met a patient with big problems that I can’t help. Every patient is unique, and there is no one solution that fits all mouths. I will be your guide on how to proceed for a healthy mouth and body.
