Dinah, a working mom with a teenage son, is one of my patients and she has a story that I hope will be encouraging to others.
When she came in to see me on her first visit, Dinah was suffering with painful teeth, broken teeth and missing teeth and had over 28 cavities. She could not drink hot coffee or tea, not even cold orange juice or milk. A significant amount of acid destruction in her mouth led to this point.
Dinah has a similar story when it comes to patients I see. “Dr. Kravitz, I have been helping my family for the last 15 years — I have helped raise my kids, helped my husband with the household, assisted my coworkers at work,” Dinah then began to raise the pitch in her voice, and stated with confidence:
“It’s time for me… to take care of me!”
I’m here to share that Dinah is NOT alone. There are many remarkable women who care for the rest of their families, in a selfless manner. Parents, children, brothers, sisters – Dinah helped everyone! However, Dinah neglected the health of her mouth for 15+ years.
Dinah expressed that she wanted to do whatever it took to fix her cavities, re-grow her gums and bone from gum disease, and replace her missing teeth with dental implants. Dinah was adamant that she did NOT want to wear dentures. At that point, the cavities were so large and on every tooth, that it was in Dinah’s best interest for her general health, to remove all of her infected teeth. The infections were spreading to her pancreas, lungs and heart.
Dinah then proceeded to have all of her teeth removed.
A fearful and anxious time for Dinah, but she endured. The same day, Dinah had 20 dental implants placed with the 3 Minute Implant™ technique. No scalpels, no stitches, no bleeding. And, Dinah left with a full set of absolutely beautiful teeth!
The dental implants were immediately loaded with custom-crafted teeth. Her gums grew. Her bone grew. Her confidence grew. Her smile grew. Her life improved.
The very next day, Dinah stated “All my pain is gone Dr. Kravitz!” Dinah continued, “Dr. K, I can chew solid food again” and “I am shocked that this was all done in one day.” Then, Dinah shouted out with tears of joy:
“I went from desperation to inspiration. Dr. Kravitz, you saved my life!”
That is why I absolutely love what I do for patients. Every patient is different, and it is truly rewarding to help people, like Dinah, to vastly improve her quality of life.
