I was hesitant to get an implant because I don’t like surgery, so I put it off. My family, especially my mom and dad, encouraged me to get the implant. Not only did my confidence return after that implant, my family was very happy and excited that my pretty smile was back – until a few weeks ago when I went mountain biking with my buddies. I got a little unstable on top of a hill, which had a very steep shoulder off to one side. It’s called the “derailer” and can be tough to walk, let alone ride. I lost control and went face first down to the ground. My teeth fractured even though they didn’t come all the way out. Now Dr. Nerestant’s replaced four of my teeth – and I wear a full face helmet to protect them!
