Looking 20 years younger!!!
I wasn??t brought up with a strict sense of oral hygiene. Perhaps it was the era. Most people smoked, drank heavily and didn??t pay too much attention to their health. As a result, we all tended to lose our teeth around 40 and 50. By 60, I didn??t have a single natural tooth left in my mouth! What I did have was a bulky and uncomfortable piece of plastic that was hard on my gums and even harder on my self-esteem. I was a far cry from the confident beauty I had been in my 20??s! Luckily, a friend told me about dental implants and recommended Dr. Marty Cloin. She said that I shouldn??t leave it too long or my jaw bone will wither away ?? something her dentist had told her and something I wish mine had told me!
I saw Dr. Cloin the very next week and was immediately struck by his gentle manner. He laughed at all my silly jokes and completely dispelled all the anxiety I felt at the beginning of the appointment. Together, we discussed a procedure that would give me permanent teeth supported by dental implants. The surgery was fine; I was sedated for it, so I don??t remember a thing except for the wonderful feeling of calmness. When I finally came too, Dr. Cloin was handing me a mirror to have a look at my new teeth. I couldn??t help but burst into tears! I looked 20 years younger!
I am eternally grateful to Dr. Marty Cloin and the team at Arlington Texas Dental. They??ve given me 20 years of my youth back and the joie de vivre to go with it!
