Shoes are Different Sizes for a Reason… Worth the read…
We were thrilled to work on this little gem last week. Revisit our blog later in the week for her after photos.
More importantly, this patient and daughter wanted me to share her story so others can learn from her almost huge mistake. This patient visited her regular dentist of many years and was told that she needed the latest dental treatment often referred to as “All on Four”. This procedure involves extracting all existing teeth including roots and placing 4 implants on the upper arch and 4 implants on the lower arch with both an upper and lower snap on denture. As she sat there in tears contemplating how she was going to refinance her home to be able to afford the 40,000 quoted of “needed” treatment, she phoned her daughter with the news.
Her daughter, our existing patient, recommended seeing Dr. Friedman for a second opinion.
As you may guess, after reviewing her xrays, Dr. Friedman did recommend some extractions for decay. But Dr. Friedman recommended 3 extractions vs. the 23 she was previously quoted, some porcelain restorations consisting of crowns and veneers but most importantly….she was keeping 20 of her original teeth giving her the best quality of life.
The entire office was moved by her procedure and we can not wait to share the remaining of her dental journey with MOD Squad and Dr. Friedman.
If you or someone you may know is about to invest in dental treatment and would like a complimentary second opinion, phone Jess today 858-547-0070 to reserve an appointment.

Featured Smile of the Week…
You may recognize this face as the amazing 3rd baseman that played for the Padres, but to us he is one of our fun loving patients featured this week. His existing smile was worn giving him what appeared to be a reverse smile line. He & Dr. Friedman discussed upper 10 porcelain restorations restoring the length of his teeth and giving him a natural smile. What a great result and smile. Put him in coach!!

When this patient was ready for her smile make-over she knew exactly who she wanted for her dentist because Dr. Friedman has already restored the smile of her grandmother, uncle, and other family members. This patient did not particularly like her smile and wanted the space closed between her front two teeth. This patient also had a very strong muscle (frenum) that caused her front two teeth to separate and restricted her upper lip from raising when she smiled.
During her complimentary smile consultation, Dr. Friedman discussed braces with a surgical procedure (frenectomy) to release the muscle above her two front teeth. The patient and mother were not interested in braces and wanted porcelain for her smile. Dr. Friedman completed the frenectomy along with miner gingivectomy (removal of extra gum tissue), and placed upper 8 porcelain veneers giving the patient a natural beautiful smile.
