Total Mouth Makeover! Curtis Thurston Tells The Story of His Total Transformation Thanks to Dr. Nikki Christian, DDS of Independence, MO!

Have you ever wanted the chance to rewrite a part of your story?  Has there always been that one thing that’s just out of reach, or that one piece of the puzzle that always turns up missing? You know if you could just make that leap, everything would start to look a little different.  Eventually, we learn that taking the leap is worth it!

This was the case with our patient, Curtis.  He was born with hypodontia of his two Upper Lateral Incisors.  What that means is that two of his front teeth never came in.  A common cosmetic treatment for this problem was to create a false tooth with wings on each side, also known as a Maryland bonded bridge, and attach it to the bridge’s two neighboring teeth.  For it’s time, this treatment was sufficient as a temporary fix to the problem. But unfortunately, these bridges were not meant to withstand all of  the speaking, laughing, smiling, or tasting that happens in a lifetime.  Bridges can become easily detached and are subject to discoloration over time.  This treatment is far from perfect, but for a long time, Curtis was left with little options to choose from.  But now, after spending nearly half his life dealing with the nuisance of bridges and teeth that hadn’t quite reached their potential, Curtis is finally getting the chance to take back his smile.
