Bengt

"Twelve years later and I'm still very satisfied"

"I have nothing against 'spare parts' if they can make your life easier— and that's definitely what the dental implant has done for me," says Bengt Kalin. He works as a consultant—and has had an implant as a secure replacement for his left front tooth for twelve years now."

Bengt Kalin"The problems with my front tooth started when I was about 13 years old," explains Bengt. "The tooth was in bad condition and I had to have a root canal.

But after a while, it became discolored and bluish—not particularly attractive. So my previous dentist extracted the tooth and replaced it with a conventional crown, attached to the adjacent teeth. In my work, I am often on a podium giving lectures. When I woke up one morning 15 years ago, I discovered that my tooth had fallen out. And I had an important presentation to make that very day! So, in somewhat of a panic, I called my present dentist who quickly glued the crown back in place. This 'quick fix' was repeated several times over a two-year period—very inconvenient. But I did not want to speak in front of a lot of people with a big gap in my mouth.
New teeth

When my dentist later suggested dental implants, the decision was easy. I said yes immediately! The treatment went well and everything was taken care of professionally. Today, I am not even aware of the implant —in fact, I forget that it is there!

I enjoy playing the trombone in my spare time. Now I know that I have a new tooth that can take the pressure. No more worrying about the crown falling off—and that makes my life a lot easier."
