Finally, Some Good News
For many years, Ann fought a losing battle with periodontal disease. “My teeth were in very bad condition and falling out. I went to so many dentists, and they all gave me bad news. It was root canals and pain and money spent – and still at the end I was going to lose my teeth.”
Ann eventually had to get dentures, but they were a constant source of discomfort and embarrassment for her.
“When I was talking to someone and had something stuck between the denture and my gums, it was so painful.” Ann explained.
“I looked 10 to 15 years older.”
“Every time I smiled I had to cover my mouth because I was so ashamed.”
Then Ann heard about ClearChoice and went to the San Antonio center, where she learned about dental implants, the bone loss that occurs after losing teeth, and how dentures can accelerate that process.
“They told me I didn’t have to live with dentures for the rest of my life, and for the first time, I saw there was a light at the end of the tunnel.”
