I’m a Dental-phobe No More

Have a really bad tooth? Maybe one or more missing? Afraid of the dentist? Maybe REALLY afraid of the dentist? That was me! Seriously, I was about as dental-phobic as they come. I used to be terrified of the dentist and an implant specialist even more so! I’m not anymore and my teeth are in great shape now thanks to Dr. Pottorff.

To my fellow dental-phobics, I really want you to know that you can let go of your fear and have some really great 21st century dental care done. You don’t need to have missing teeth. You don’t need to be embarrassed to smile. You just need a good doc and I have one for you - Dr. Pottorff.

I’m serious about this. I’m taking the time to write this for the dental-phobic out there because I know what it’s like to be so afraid that tooth loss and missing teeth somehow seems reasonable. Right now, I have a couple of exceptional dental implants and I can tell you very honestly that I’m really happy I have them and they were far easier to have done then I thought with minimal discomfort and none of the terror.

When I went to see Dr. Pottorff I wasn’t in the best of shape. I had a missing tooth on the top and an infected tooth on the bottom that had a fractured root. An endodontist had assured me that tooth needed to go to. My shoulder and neck were aching from the infection. The two teeth were even opposing each other in my mouth so I was going to have a huge hole there if something wasn’t done.

The very best option was dental implants. My regular dentist referred me to Dr. Pottorff. YOU WANT A SPECIALIST FOR THIS WORK.

I tell you I was honestly amazed from my very first appointment. The 3D imaging they use really shows you what’s going on in your mouth. Dr. Pottorff walks you through your options and he truly understands and works with those of us with dental fear. He really went above and beyond for me. His staff was really friendly and wonderful to work with too. You can really feel the positive energy in his office. This is a place of healing.

When my big day came I was amazed at how well everything worked out. The doc put in my upper implant and got out that tooth with the fractured root and all that nasty infection. I actually needed a bone graft too and that was done at the same time. I know all that might sound terrifying to some but I was actually comfortable through it! I was given a pillow and blanket and a very mild sedative (I was worried about that too as phobic as I am but the sedative was nothing at all). For me, I experienced very little discomfort through all that work. I tell you again - YOU WANT A SPECIALIST FOR THIS WORK. I would have NEVER done that with a general dentist.

Afterwards, for me, I had almost no pain following the procedures, very minor. The doc is thorough and does followups while your implants heal. The crown for the implant came later and took less than 15 minutes to attach I think - nothing at all.

My second implant came later, after the bone graph did it’s work. By that time I was actually looking forward to having the second implant placed and had total trust in Dr. Pottorff.

So, I wrote all this hoping to help those like me - the dental-phobic. I have to say though, after working with the doc, in his hands, I don’t think I’m phobic anymore. I trust him. He earned it with me. If you’re hesitant, please get your teeth fixed. Get a consultation at the very least to see what can be done for you by a true professional in dental implants. Dental health really is critical.

Thanks Doc, I can smile as broadly as I like again.

I had a wonderful experience during my initial visit with Dr. Pottoroff and the staff of Advanced Dental. It was a warm, welcoming atmosphere where everything was explained fully and efforts were made to help me feel comfortable. I hope to be back in soon to begin the work I need done. I thank you all very much.

By the time, I reached Dr. Pottorff office, I already researched 4 implant specialists. I was so confused as to what procedures I needed, in at what sequence they need to be done and how the cost would would add up that I almost gave up. Then, I walked into their office and it was all made so perfectly clear that after 30 minutes all I had to figure out was ... now how am I going to pay for this. Even that was made simple, they work together with your insurance and lenders to make this all happen. I knew working 2nd shift would cause challenges in getting into to the office and out fast enough to get to work on time, but they never failed me, they managed to make it work. The staff there is like no other, I never had one difficult day with any of them. I don’t know how they do it, all I can assume is they love their jobs and it shows in how they treat one another, their patients and see to their patient’s needs. In closing let’s just face the two major facts on everyone’s mind: One, it is very unnatural to remove and replace teeth, but your health depends on it so you need to get it done. Two, everyone is on a budget and how do you make it work. All I can say is, this is the place to be if you are looking for superior quality and excellent care. They will help navigate you through it and before you know it, you are a healthier, happier person and life is back to normal.

I've been seeing Dr. Pottorff for a couple of years and he and his staff are terrific. I have had 2 implants completed and they are absolutely fantastic. They REALLY do feel just like your own teeth. We're working on 3 more implants right now and can't wait til they are finished. Dr. Pottorff and his entire staff are a joy to work with.

Who Loves Their Dental Implant Surgeon? I do!

I had been told I did not have enough bone to support an implant for my back top teeth which had been missing for many years. Lots of bone loss there. Dr. Pottorff explained he needed to grow bone in my sinus. Really? Sort of scary-sounding. But after the surgery I had no pain! And now with new bone in my sinus I have two implants and can chew with my back teeth again! I would recommend Advanced Dental and Implant Care to anyone who needs this done. Each patient is treated with individual concern, including above-and-beyond follow-up. Dr. P and his entire staff are knowledgeable, courteous, sensitive, kind and very very caring. I can't thank them enough for an amazing and painless job.

From the moment you walk into Dr. Pottorff's office everything is calm and quiet with soft music playing in the background. He and his professional staff do everything possible to see the you are greeted, kept comfortable, and informed about all procedures. Other than the implant process taking approximately a year, the actual 2 to 3 visits for the preparation and placement of the implant are practically pain free. I especially appreciated Dr. Pottorff's concern for me as his patient with his personal phone calls after each procedure. I highly recommend Advanced Dental & Implant Care.
