During perhaps one of the most nerve whacking dental procedures I thought I ever would endure, my experience turned out to be much more pleasant then expected. 4 implants and a day later, my mouth feels as though I had a simple filling put in and not the battlefield my overactive imagination had envisioned. Dr. Carmichael thinks outside the box in evaluation of your needs. I can't quite wrap my head around the fact that I lack the pain that you would think to have after the implants I received. I'm very pleased with he outcome so far!
