"I have a fairly active social life. So when I was told that it would be a minimum of six months between the time I had my tooth extracted and a dental implant put in, I said 'Are you kidding?!' I couldn't imagine hiding in the house for six months.
I had already tried the Maryland Bridge in the past -- and it was too cumbersome. I was in constant fear that it would break if I bit on something hard, or dislodge if I clenched or ground my teeth.
The Tupelo literally saved me. I could go out to eat in public and talk normally, without feeling self-conscious. I loved it. I ended up wearing it for eight months, and it saved me financially, too."
