Recently a retired Vietnam Vet came to my Long Island dental office with a complaint that the four implants his dentist placed under his denture several months ago had either fallen out or were loose. The loose implants were very painful. This had been going on for months with no resolution offered by his dentist. I immediately sent the patient over to the periodontist to remove the loose implants. The patient then came back to my office and I added my special tissue conditioner to his old denture. What a relief! He was comfortable and able to function until I could finish making him a new denture.

I explained to the patient that he had a very good residual ridge, and I didn’t think he needed the implants. What he needed was a denture that fitted and functioned well. His old dentist had added the implants to his worn out and ill-fitting denture. What was the point of that? This patient was ill served, but lucky for him, he found my Suffolk County, Long Island Dental office – and I am making him the best dentures!download gangland dvdrip download blood diamond
