Over the months that followed, due to the neglect and severity of my dental condition, my gums and bone structure needed reconstruction, including bone grafting, shaping the bones in order to get a quality fit for the future. All of this, probably, had me experience many or most elements of his services that are required to accomplish the results that I have, including MRI, x-ray, laser surgery, bone grafting, and contouring, removal of “the mouth full of dental mess” and more. It was all done efficiently and as painlessly as I have ever experienced. Dr. Thornell had assured me in the beginning that comfort and pain control was a top priority in the process, and he demonstrated just that. Again, I am the COWARD of dentistry and would not make these statements if not 100% true. While being treated, I noticed new credentials appeared on the back office wall. Dr. Thornell had just received the highest credential possible in implant dentistry. As explained to me; it is the equivalent of a PhD in his specialty and took many years of work, study, and research to achieve this level of recognition for his skill and professionalism. I believe he is too modest and humble to acclaim his noteworthy accomplishment. However, it certainly shows in the service provided with his dedication to providing the finest services, whether it is good dental care service or the highest level implant specialty, available today; anywhere in the U.S.A. and RIGHT HERE IN PAGOSA SPRINGS, COLORADO. Let me say, I do not believe any implant or denture implants will be the same as the originals (or most) that we were given in the beginning. However, if you need the finest dental care or correction to achieve dental health, as I desperately did, you would be very lucky to meet and receive care from Dr. Thornell and his staff.
Today, I have a smile that has been missing for quite a few years. Those that do not know of my dentures would never know that I even have dentures. They are solid, having the best fit possible. Yes, I now eat steak and apples and corn on the cob, most anything I wish to. Everyone should be so fortunate to have access to this kind of care and professionalism.
To my truly professional dental specialist:
I sincerely thank you, again, for the fine results I have experienced.
