Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: How Jerry Got a Confident Smile
Periodontal disease not only affects your dental and overall health: It can take a toll on your self-esteem.
Some people cover their smile because of how this condition has affected their smiles.
Our client Jerry was one of the many individuals in this situation.
Here, Jerry shares his story of how non-surgical periodontal therapy at The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry made an impact on him.
Watch his testimonial above or read the transcript below!
Jerry: My name is Jerry Brown, and I came to Dr. Gorman about four or five months ago. And my dental hygiene wasn’t all that great.
I didn’t take care of myself and it was years of neglect. And I was always really nervous about going to the dentist.
I never felt comfortable. The worst time I had was when I was in the Army and the dentists typically weren’t very nice and didn’t promote dental hygiene as much as they should have.
And when I’d go to the dentist there, it was in and out and rushed. So, that made me not want to go to the dentist anymore.
So over the years, I struggled with addiction, and that made me neglect my dental hygiene even more.
What was your experience like at The Gorman Center?
Jerry: When I came in to Dr. Gorman, I was thinking that all my teeth were going to have to be pulled out and I’m going to have to get dentures.
And, I was just going to be without teeth. But now I have teeth. Dr. Gorman and the staff here made me feel incredibly comfortable.
As soon as I walked into the door, here it was – I want to say almost family-like because I got to know everybody and everybody’s really nice to me and I smile more.
I used to cover my mouth when I smiled or even laughed. I didn’t want to go places, or I never would smile like that.
How has your life changed since receiving periodontal therapy?
I can go with the rest of my life with a good smile and feeling comfortable about my smile.
Jerry: I feel more comfortable in my appearance. I’d like to thank Dr. Gorman and everybody for their time and efforts they put into making me a new person. Because that’s how I feel right now.
People look at me now, and they kind of give me a double look because they see that I’m happy.
So now I can go with the rest of my life with a good smile and feeling comfortable about my smile.
