Nicole, 50, lives in Plainsboro and works as an overnight stocker. She is missing all but three of her bottom teeth, and even those need to be removed. Nicole wrote about how her self-esteem has been destroyed and how difficult it is to talk to people because she’s self-conscious about her smile. When she rarely does talk to people, she tries to avoid looking at them or deflects their attention away from her so they won’t look at her. It’s not who she was or who she wants to be; she used to be outgoing. She wants to be able to eat her favorite foods again, and she wants to have her confidence back. Overall, she hopes that a new smile can help her go back to school and get a job in a professional environment, specifically something where she can work with animals, and where she can confidently speak with others.
Full-arch restoration is a healthy and effective way to replace many missing teeth. The procedure works by securing a full prosthesis in the mouth using as few as four dental implants. The final set of teeth will look just like natural teeth, so patients can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
