Probably seven years ago.my son fell and hit one of his front lower teeth. The tooth was not loosened but he did require sutures because the tooth went completely thru his lower lip. Nobody expressed concern for the tooth at that time. Approximately 5 months later, during his routine cleaning, it was brought to our attention there was some discoloration. After x-rays it was determined that the impact had damaged his tooth. He was sent for a root canal and a year later developed an abcess requiring an eventual extraction which then required an emergency trip to an oral surgeon due to the tooth breaking. Since then he has had to see numerous Dentists for consultations and special spacers made which have never lasted for any length of time. Finally we were refered to yet another for possible placement of a dental implant but that was postponed due to age, then spacing and bone loss. Truthfully, we had just about given up. My son attended Church camp this past week. During a casuel conversation with his small group leader's wife he mentioned his tooth and expressed the desire to someday find a way to get it fixed. She referred us to Traders Point Dental.
I easily found the office and was impressed with the cleanliness. We were immediately met with a very caring and friendly staff which put us both at ease. My son received a very thorough exam. He was due for a routine cleaning and it just happened they had a cancelation so we were able to get that done as well. The hygienist who did his cleaning was exceptional. She carefully explained what she was doing, took time to show him areas he needed to concentrate more on and explained why. Dr. Kwon came in after reviewing my son's history, his past and current x-rays. He not only told us what he was seeing, he also showed us on the x-ray exactly what the issues were. He gave us an option that had never been presented before. He went over and beyond telling us personal experiences from his own family to ease our feelings of anxiety. He did refer us to someone else that has more experience with what he has suggested but we feel very confident that this traumatic event is going to finally be resolved. The office staff was beyond awesome as well. My family will definitely be returning here for our future dental needs!
