Jai got his new Raya SMILE!!: Dr Mawarni
Jai has been bringing his family members regularly for dental treatment with us for many years. However, he never came to seek treatment for himself.
Not until one fine day, one of his front tooth fractured. Only root of the tooth left. So, it appeared as if there was no tooth there.
Since Hari Raya is just around the corner, he wanted to have a better smile to meet relatives and friends.
We sat down and discussed in detail about his treatment plan and the options available to replace the missing teeth.
We have agreed to settle the front teeth first as that was the top priority – to appear presentable during Raya.
So, I proceed with full mouth scaling, the front teeth fillings followed by extraction of the non restorable front teeth and premolars.
Jai chose to replace the missing teeth with a valplast denture. He used to wear the acrylic type denture.
The advantage of valplast denture versus acrylic denture are, it is more flexible & comfortable, hardly fracture and more aesthetic.
I just issued his valplast denture yesterday. Everything went well. He was pleased with his new smile.
Of course he is a much handsome person now. I feel so grateful for the opportunity to help him.
As a parent myself, I understand the feeling of selflessness of oneself with his/ her children. Sometimes, we put more priority of our kids’s health than ourselves. I think Jai had put the priority of his family more than himself.
There is always something good that we can dig in our ‘bad’ life events. It’s just the way we see it that matters.
Now, Jai is a more confident and healthy father for his children.
To all parents, you need to love yourself first. You deserve to have a healthy and beautiful smile too! Yes, you matter =).
Since Hari Raya is just around the corner, I would like to wish everyone, ‘Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Maaf Zahir Batin’. Have a safe trip to your hometown and enjoy the precious moments with your loved ones!!
Warm regards: Dr. Mawarni
