I had multiple dental issues, knew I did not want dentures and felt I wanted something permanent. My sister suggested I see her dentist, Dr. Shoemaker. Dr. Shoemaker and I met and discussed my options for keeping my remaining teeth for a lifetime. We decided to move forward with implant-supported bridges and fixed teeth. I was surprised that there was no pain with my implant surgery. I have been pleased with my implants. I like the way they look and feel and I can’t tell the difference between them and my natural teeth. I’m smiling more, enjoying improved confidence. I receive compliments on my smile often. I am pleased with my investment and thankful to Dr. Shoemaker for my care.
