Hello Dr. Alvarado,
I just wanted to let you know that all is going well. I’m still getting used to the one remaining temporary (#10), and while I still keep playing with it with my tongue, it doesn’t drive me crazy anymore, and I can say the letter “s” without whistling too badly. All the other teeth are terrific! The bite is perfect. Food doesn’t keep getting caught between my teeth. Flossing is a pleasure. They look terrific. You’re a sculptor.
By the way, do you remember that I was cold, and didn’t feel well on my last visit? We’ll, I continued to be chilled and feverish, and had other GI problems, for several days. I think I picked up some kind of “bug” in Samara, and that it had nothing to do with the “stress” of being in the dentist’s chair for so long.
I’m trying to figure out how to handle the one remaining crown (#10). I need it completed in 3 months. Please let me know how we would schedule it, what exactly would be done, and what it would cost for you to do it. Then I’ll figure out what it would cost for a local (Seattle) dentist. My preference is for you to do it, but cost is a factor.
Take care of yourself, and thank you. Sincerely,
