I am Mr.Prabhakar Reddy aged about 45 yrs. I have been suffering from swollen gums & bad breath for the last 15 yrs. I had consulted Dr. Sudheer Chowdary, Ameerpet Dental Specialties, Hyderabad in the year 2005. He advised me to go for Gum Surgery which would remove the gum infection and also said to me that by undergoing Gum Surgery my remaining healthy bone could be saved or else the infection would damage the bone completely & there would be chances of my teeth getting mobile. I was scared to go for the Gum Surgery & hence I went for a second opinion to another dentist. He advised me that gum surgery was not required and only repeated scaling would solve my problem. I was a happy man & went on according to his advice.
Mean while my job got transferred to another city. My bad breath problem went on increasing gradually. It wouldn’t subside on repeated scaling & mouth wash usage. As time passed on I realized that few of my teeth were becoming mobile. I consulted a local top dentist in the city I was working in the year 2010. He advised me to take an x-ray & said more than 70% of bone is lost & all the teeth required extraction & since there is no bone left on the back teeth implants treatment is impossible & so I should go for dentures. It was literally a shock for me & I was in a state of depression.
In the same year on my official trip to Hyderabad I met Dr. Sudheer Chowdary again. He advised me to take a digital OPG & C.T.Scan. After seeing them he advised me to go for laser gum surgery where there will be no pain. This time I followed his advice. To my surprise I didn’t have absolutely any pain. After laser gum surgery Dr.Sudheer said I can go for full mouth implants with a new technique called BASAL IMPLANTS where implants are possible for those who don’t have bone.
Following this he asked me to go for a complete blood & urine examinations. All the tests were normal. Then he removed my total teeth in 2 days time. During extraction itself he cleared the sockets & applied laser again on the infected sockets & placed upper 10 implants & lower 10 implants. With the support of these implants he gave me upper 14 units Ceramic Bridge (teeth) & lower 14 units Ceramic Bridge (teeth).
He advised me to take only soft diet for a period of 4 months & later I started chewing everything. Now I am able to eat all sort of food like any youngster & I am able to smile confidently & speak properly & above all my facial appearance has improved a lot.
Thanks to the basal implant technology & many more thanks to Dr.Sudheer Chowdary. I am extremely happy with the treatment& my best regards to DR. Sudheer.
