Hello Sherrie,


I had a great experience with Aspen. Being only 28 years old it was quite the experience for me to go and have these talks with them even though it's their job I still felt embarrassed. So I went for my consultation with my fiance and she (my dentist) recommend the Comfilytes for me. I was on a tight deadline because I have my wedding in 2 months and want to be able to smile with my fiancé and step son. So she continued so say I get a temporary and then a permanent set 6 months later (they are the most expensive set). So we talked for a little longer and set an appointment for impressions.


At the appointment for your impressions they size you up with a metal tray. Top and bottoms regardless of the set your getting pulled. I believe it helps shows the lab your bite. They put this goop in the tray similar to dry wall or spackle as I was told and if you know what facial mud is that was the other analogy she told me. Me not being a girly girl I didn't know what that felt like. So they out the trays in your mouth and hold them there. You will drool. I did. I'm sure everyone does. I got the mold right on the first try but the hygienist did say if the dentist doesn't like it we will have to do it again so just listen to the hygienist and let them do their thing. Aspen has their own lab so the following day before I went in I took my before picture and I went for extractions and listened to the loudest and most obnoxious music lol on my iPhone. They also had tv's so that took my attention too. I literally felt nothing and all I received was local anesthetic. What felt like 30-45 mins later I was placed with my temporary denture which looks like 100x better.

It has been 4 days since the extractions and I have gone to get adjusted once. I haven't taken any prescribed Percocet just motrin for pain. My pain DIDNT go past a 3-4 out of 10. I am completely satisfied with aspen and it was worth any money spent.


This is 25 years of numerous seizure medications. But because they didnt know which one I was kind of on my own. But now I have my smile back and it is amazing.


I am going to be able to smile at my wedding and no embarrassing pictures will be taken. So worth what ever you do. Good luck. You will do great. Let us know how it goes.


Hope this helped


JK

And Sherrie. Good luck tomorrow. You will do great. I freaked out more than I should have. Take before and after picture for yourself even if you think you don't need them it's nice to compare. If you have any questions you know where to ask. Good luck and you will do great. Congratulations

Joe
