"I just wanted to contact you to let you know how satisfied I am with the dental implant that we did three years ago. The implant to fill-in for my missing tooth was absolutely the right decision. Certainly more practical than the alternative of a bridge connected to the adjacent teeth. The carefully planned, step-by-step procedure to put the implant in was easy and painless. I’m sure it was the care and planning done before the procedure that made the actual work and healing process very easy.

The implanted tooth looks and feels very natural. It’s like it has been there forever. Several friends have asked me about the implant procedure. I highly recommend it to all of them. If ever necessary, I would not hesitate to have Dr. Hunt do it again."

"Six years ago I had two implants done by Dr. Hunt on the lower jaw, and I want to reiterate what a difference it has made to my everyday life by not having the aggravation and disadvantage of wearing partial dentures. The anesthesia and the surgical treatment as such were not even noticed by me, and I had absolutely no pain or discomfort afterwards. I can only stress the tremendous advantages of having one’s own teeth in contrast to partial dentures, and I would heartily recommend them to anyone. Thank you again for having suggested this procedure."

"My implant procedure was done almost 8 years ago and I have to say it was one of the easiest dental procedures I ever had. Unfortunately, I do not have good teeth. I’ve had many routine and surgical procedures that were quite stressful and painful. However, I have to say that my implant was absolutely painless, much to my surprise. Of course, I was apprehensive about it but it really was nothing like I had experienced with other procedures.

I had a general anesthesia although I was also given the choice of being awake. But I was a chicken and decided to “sleep” it out. I don’t remember exactly how long it took but I do remember having no problems whatsoever afterwards. From past experiences with other dental surgeries I came prepared with an ice pack for the car ride home, but I really didn’t need it. I had no swelling. My doctor gave me a small packet of pain pills (Vicodin) but I never used them. I got no other prescriptions.

The rest of the procedure - building the crown, etc. was equally easy. Since then, I have had no problems with the implant and in actuality I forget I even have it. I treat (use) the tooth like any other - it is probably the strongest in my mouth now! I would urge anyone thinking about the procedure to not give it a second thought. If I had to come up with a drawback, it would be that my dental insurance did not cover the cost. But just the same, it was well worth the expense in the long run. I would hope that now they are covered more by dental insurances, but if not, I still would pay to have it done.

Please let me know if you’d like more information from me and also feel free to use me as a reference if anyone would like to talk with me personally about this."

"The anchorage is positive with no float or rift. It’s great to be able to eat a normal meal again."

"I’ve had my dental implant for 6 years or more and would definitely consider having you do another for me, if needed. The procedure went very well, with little discomfort afterward.

I treat my implant the same as all my own teeth. I decided to have the dental implant in order to keep my own teeth from moving, after losing several teeth from a bad crown/bridge procedure I received from another dentist some years earlier. So, although the implant was expensive, I feel it was worth it to keep my own teeth “in-line”.

I have recommended the procedure to several people at my office."

June P.

"Your staff asked me to drop you all a line about how I was progressing with my new implant. As you know, I thought the procedure went very well. I had no ill effects from the work performed. Well, the implant has been in about 3 months now, and quite honestly it has worked out so well that I must think about where in fact it was placed in my teeth. It has been great!

If presented with another situation that called for an implant, I would do it in a second. Please tell your patients about my success.

Thanks for asking about how I am progressing.

It was well worth getting the implants to help in chewing and maintaining the alignment of my other teeth. They are completely secure in my gums and have never caused a problem in seven years. I recommend getting implants with complete confidence and would do so again if needed."

Suzann B.

"I have had my dental implants for 3 years and have never had a problem with them. The implants allowed me to have a permanent denture instead of a removable one. They look and feel exactly like my own teeth.

The entire procedure from pre-operative through post-operative was painless.

I am so glad I chose to have implants. I recommended them to a friend - we both agree that it was definitely worth it."
