Words simply cannot express the caring, the compassion, or the amazing level of service I received at Pi Dental Center. Having neglected my teeth for long enough, something drastic needed to be done. I spent months researching my potential options and came across the Pi web site. From my very first visit and consultation with Dr. Wolfinger and the entire team, I felt very comfortable. I was assured that they could help me despite my feelings of hopelessness as I was even beginning to lose teeth. Once financing was taken care of, we scheduled the big day for October 1st. I honestly did not believe a single person who advised me that I would feel very little pain, if any… well, let me tell you – I have NO idea how they did it, but save for a single Ibuprofen the day after the procedure, I didn’t need any pain killers at all. This may not sound all that impressive, but I had no less than 26 teeth extracted, 8 titanium implants screwed into my jaw, and temporary prosthesis mounted – all in about 5 hours(!) with no pain at all – with only local anesthesia. Again, I have absolutely no idea how this is even possible, but the team of people who came together to help me are simply miracle workers. I walked into the office with a horrendous mouth full of embarrassing dental neglect, and walked out just over 5 hours later with some of the most perfect looking teeth you can imagine. And I drove myself home. The only remotely negative part of the entire experience is the “bulkiness” of the temporary (non-removable) teeth. This is by-design, as these literally act as a splint to secure the implants as they integrate with the bone in your jaw. (Titanium is an amazing material, as it turns out) So these temporary teeth are a bit larger in the mouth than the permanent ones will be. This “healing” period as the titanium “osseointegrates” to the bone is a short 8 to 12 weeks, so the bulky temporary teeth are a small price to pay for the end-result. I was used to the new teeth and chewing confidently in less than a week. As it turns out, my poor dental hygiene led to numerous other health problems which I never knew could be attributed to my teeth. But there were several abscesses and infections which were causing me sinus problems and ongoing chest congestion, and headaches. ALL of this went away the very moment my bad teeth were extracted. I felt better the very next day – and that is no exaggeration. I even sleep through the night now – something I had not done in many years. So THANK YOU to Dr. Wolfinger and the entire team at Pi. Amy, Linda, Pat, Stephen… and many more who I’m forgetting… these folks are simply the very best.
