Q: I recently brought my mom to a doctor who placed several dental implants. I was shocked that she was in the office for almost five hours! She was exhausted. Is this normal?
A: Five hours? You could have picked my Mom up and taken her to a Broadway matinee! Take her. Please!
No-Cut Dental Implant
I recently had a patient who is a retired surgeon, very worried about her planned procedure to place four dental implants. Her husband was shocked that I came out of my operating room in my private practice in twenty-eight minutes. I told him I would have been done sooner, but I had a large OJ for breakfast and had to take a break before having an accident.
Now not all surgeries go that easy, but when we use an incision-less, no cut, no stitch surgical technique that we will now officially name: “JIM”tm -(Josephs Incision-less Method), each implant could be placed in seven minutes. Not all patients are candidates and must be evaluated first with digital X-rays and an examination, but I can tell you that I place over 200 implants every year and 95% of my cases are performed with JIMtm.
When it comes to surgery, it is always better to act like a Navy Seal in Zero Dark Thirty: You get in, you get out with deft and confidence; a clean surgical strike. Less pain and swelling, less local anesthesia drugs used, less pain and emotional trauma for you AND you’re Mom. Awesome slides on this on Feb 8th in the Gardens. Details below.
