“I came to Dr. Moser with a complicated dental history. About ten years prior, I had a tumor removed from my lower jaw which damaged some of my lower front teeth. After 10 years and two pregnancies, my lower right incisor was slowly dying and had become abscessed.
At the time, I was six months pregnant and I was not ready to lose my tooth!
Dr. Moser thoroughly explained my options and allowed me to make the final decision about how we should proceed. While I’m sure it would have been easier for Dr. Moser to pull the tooth, he honored my decision to proceed with a difficult root canal (the abscess had perforated the tooth). Dr. Moser performed a meticulous root canal which didn’t require a crown and he extended the life of the tooth for a couple of years.
When the time came to extract the tooth, we discussed each of my options, so I could make an informed decision about the optimal treatment plan. Given these options to weigh, I felt that the best long term solution was to get a dental implant. While Dr. Moser could have taken the tooth out, he opted to refer me to an oral surgeon as the tooth had become fused to the bone and I needed to have a veneer block graft performed to prepare the site for an implant.
After all the grafting was complete and the implant was placed, I returned to Dr. Moser for the final piece of the puzzle the crown. Since there was so much tissue damage in the area from previous surgeries, a custom crown had to be made in order to fit the implant. Again, Dr. Moser explained my options in great detail so I could make educated decisions about how the crown should be made. I was impressed at how closely he worked with the lab while the crown was being made to make sure that the crown was “just right”. Dr. Moser has such a great attention to detail that he even sent me back to the lab after the crown was placed to have highlights added to it so that it would match my own teeth more closely. Now when I smile, I can’t even tell that the crown isn’t one of my real teeth!
In a nutshell, I can tell that Dr. Moser truly cares about my overall dental health. He took the time to get to know my complicated dental history and to thoroughly explain my treatment options. He stays up to date with all the cutting edge dental technology and is very detail oriented about his work. I am so grateful that I chose Dr. Moser to be my dentist I owe my beautiful smile to his handiwork!
