Karen: Over the past 20 years I've had periodontal disease, which has caused me to lose teeth one by one over the years. It has really impacted my life bad. Besides not smiling, you know, in pictures and being embarrassed about my smile, but eating I think is the main thing, enjoying food. I think a smile is important, and it gives you a lot of confidence in dealing with other people and talking with other people. It really makes a difference on how you feel about yourself. Dr. Pourshirazi: When Karen came in, her main concern was that she had some missing teeth. She had teeth that were mobile and moving a little bit. She wanted a solution that would give her the confidence of smiling and chewing and being able to speak properly and feeling that confidence that she used to have when she had all of her teeth. And so we discussed all of her options, and she chose the All-on-4 option on the upper jaw and on the lower jaw. Karen: Dr. Pourshirazi and his team made me feel very comfortable and confident. It's funny it catches me by surprise sometimes, just little things like at the grocery store and checking out and saying thank you and smiling, and then I realize, hey, I have a beautiful smile. I feel so good and so happy with my teeth, and I am so confident now. If anyone is looking to get any work done, I really recommend going to see Dr. Pourshirazi and his team. Excellent.
