Dental Implant Experience

I had my dental implant today. The CAT scan prompted the Doctors to have sinus lifted and bone graph. We left New Jersey as early as 6:30AM, had coffee at Quick Check then proceed to New York. My appointment was set at 8:45. I have to take 4 tablets 500mg if Amoxicillin and 1 tablet of Ibuprofen. We used my car. We passed thru the Holland Tunnel. It was huge, clean and long tunnel under Hudson River in New York. I can't even figure out how the tunnel was made without a drop of water leak. Amazing.

Anyway, judgment day has come. I have to submit myself to Dr. Herbert Mendelson and his staff for my dental implant. I need 3 implants, and that cost a couple of thousand of $$$.

I have to take 4 capsules of 500mg Amoxicillin and 1 capsule of Ibuorofen 1 hour before the surgery. Dr. Camazi informed me that we're about to start. And this is the most scary part... The injection. Aenesthesia time. A topical aenesthesia was applied to my gums and palate and then afterwards injected my upper gum, the right lower gum, and the left lower gum (3 molar so 3 implants)... Then injected on my palate... I hate it, but I've been through a laparoscopy before, so this is not the first time for me. As soon as I feel my gums are numb, Dr. Camazi told me that this will gonna be a 3-4 hour procedure...

I don't want to review in detail what had happened, but one thing I will never forget is when Dr. Mendelson asked a staff to hold my head and told me not to move my head as he HAMMER a screw or a bone or whatever it is on the upper portion of my tooth....

Children, you have to take care of your teeth to avoid this ordeal! I'm telling you, its more annoying than painful. Not only that, it is expensive! Just ask around how much it cost for braces and implant.
