The Aftermath of Jordan’s Gum Disease Nightmare

To bring everyone up to speed about Jordan and her situation, let’s take a look at what has already happened. Jordan’s problems started years ago with the relatively innocuous symptoms that often accompany gum disease. She experienced bleeding gums, and red inflamed gum tissue. 

In an effort to treat herself, Jordan began using mouthwash and flossing, but none of this addressed the bacteria that was hiding below the surface of her gum tissue. Her gum disease kept getting worse and worse until finally, she sought help from Galleria of Smiles.

We were able to solve her gum disease issues, but not all of her teeth. Gum disease took three teeth from her, and that is where our story picks up. What does she do now that she has lost three of her permanent teeth? 

If she has sought help sooner, we could have saved her whole smile, and saved her a world of issues. It never is a good idea to wait on getting your gum disease treated. Galleria of Smiles has the skills, experience, and technology to help rid your mouth of this smile-killing infection, and getting your gums back to a healthy state fast.


Jordan is Able to Get Her Great Smile Back

Jordan is beside herself these days. She still has the job, still has the car, but now no longer has the smile. Actually, to be more accurate, she no longer has the confidence to smile. The thought that when she opens her mouth people will see the open areas where teeth should be terrifies her. 

She comes in every 2 months right now to continue her gum disease treatment, and while she is in the office Dr. Justin Emami mentions to her that it is getting to the point where they should begin to think about her tooth replacement options.

Jordan’s face completely changes as she thinks about the possibility that she can get something close to her old smile back. When he realizes that she is only expecting to something close, Dr. Justin Emami tells her that she doesn’t have to hope to get close, but that she can expect to get her great looking smile back thanks to dental implants. Since she only needs three implants, her surgery isn’t very extensive. 

Luckily for her, the gum disease did not rob her of the bone mass to support the dental implants either. Dr. Justin Emami gets Jordan set up with an appointment to get her dental implants placed.

Within a few weeks, Jordan has her new smile thanks to dental implants from Galleria of Smiles and it is marvelous. The replacement teeth are stable within her smile, and she can smile, eat, and speak with total confidence in her appearance again.
