Life After Dental Implants : Tina’s Story
“Wow, you have a beautiful smile!”
I can’t count the times I have heard that in the last three years. I never thought that I would feel and look like I do today, but thanks to you at EON Clinics, I have an amazing life again.
You know how everyone talks about their bucket list? I’m taking care of mine. I can’t tell you how many times in the last three years I have gotten up and sang or played with a band. My husband calls me his little star instead of summer teeth. If you don’t understand that, well I had so many teeth missing he said some are here and some are there, thus “summer teeth.”
I just can’t believe it’s me when I look in a mirror. I’m doing so many more things outside of the home, which you had to drag me out of prior to my new smile. The one thing I notice most about myself is that the fear of talking to people has vanished.
I enjoy going out to eat with friends. I don’t have to pick the things I think I can eat — I order whatever I want now! I’m still enjoying my love of the water and I go snorkeling whenever I get a chance. My life is just wonderful.
You know it’s funny, I don’t even think about my teeth being implants anymore. My three-year anniversary is this month and I want to have a celebration on that day, kinda like my rebirth day, well at least that’s how I feel.
Someone once said 100% of the shots that you don’t take don’t go in. I am so happy I took this shot. It was a slam dunk for me!
Thanks to all of you at EON Clinics, you’re all such amazing, wonderful, thoughtful people. You will never really know how much this means to me, because some things you just can’t find the words for.
