I have always been afraid of visiting the dentist, especially since I have not practiced the best oral hygiene. One day in December of 2019, I cracked one of my molars and was in excruciating pain. Dr. Brian was able to get me in the next morning to evaluate my dental emergency. After some x-rays were taken Dr. Brian said the tooth had to go. By this time, I was a nervous wreck. The staff that assisted Dr. Brian made me feel very comfortable and did a wonderful job removing the tooth. We discussed my options and decided a single implant would be the best thing to do in my situation.
While the bone and gums were healing I had 2 appointments for scaling and root planning to remove the calculus and tarter that built up from years of neglect. The hygienist did a fantastic job keeping me comfortable and making a fairly unpleasant procedure as easy as possible for me.
After the bone and gum tissue healed up from the extraction it was time to install the implant. The worst part of the procedure was numbing up the site where the drilling was going to take place, and that was not bad at all. Pulling the cracked tooth was more painful than the implant instillation.
If you are afraid of the dentist like I was, rest assured, Dr. Zulawinski and his staff are compassionate and exceptionally professional. I actually look forward to my future visits.
