A Nightmare With Happy Ending – Dr Gwen Gan
It was a fine Monday morning when I received an email from a patient who was concerned about her teeth.
The concern had been haunting her for the past five years and it became her most dreadful nightmare. She could no longer bear with it and hence decided to put in action to solve her nightmare.
Anne met a MVA (motor vehicle accident) five years ago. One of her lower front tooth was knocked out of position (subluxation of tooth). Since then, the tooth grew longer and Anne started to notice spaces in between her lower teeth.
As a super beautiful successful young engineer, this obviously was something that was very upsetting for her. Hence, she started to research about getting help to fix her teeth.
We had a tele-conversation prior to her appointment at the clinic and she thought that I should be able to help her and there she came.
The first appointment mainly was to do examination and investigation for us to work out treatment plan for her. Few treatment options were proposed and we set up dates to dive into the journey of fixing her teeth.
Root canal treatment was first performed to clear the infection before any cosmetic work.
For her makeover, Anne opted for composite veneers to fix her lower teeth.
We completed everything within 10 days which we both considered fast. Anne was very committed to fix her smile ASAP as she could no longer bear with it anymore.
For something that haunted her for 5 years, she was very proud of herself that she step out of her comfort zone and got it fixed.
As for me, as usual, I am most happy that I was able to help her to gain confidence.
On top of that, I gain a new friendship again! We promised to meet up for coffee whenever she come to Publika as the chair time was just not enough for two of us to talk. Oops, that’s the trouble when your dentist is too talkative. @.@
