23: GRACIAS & ADIOS DR. GONZALEZ

(This is not a wrap up of my dental journey as one of my readers thought. Just a summary of my last appointment with Dr. Gonzalez. Still have another appointment with Prada)

Today I had my last appointment with Dr. Gonzalez (periodontist). He's the one who performed the surgery last Wednesday (extractions, gum surgery, implants, deep cleaning). My last appointment with Dr. Prada will be Friday.

The first thing they did was take a panoramic x-ray using their brand new machine in their brand new imaging center...



"Put on this bib, stick your head in here & bite on this"...



If I had known they could spy on me, I wouldn't have started playing with buttons and switches...



The results..





Next it was time to sit in my favorite chair.  Here Dr. Gonzalez is showing me how to use the special floss threader. This is so that I can get food particles out and helps with bacteria...




Gonzalez is so talented and efficient that he blurs when he works. He is so quick that even Prada is still looking at where Gonzalez USED to be. I was obviously fascinated by the stucko on the ceiling...




Here is my bag filled with the cases and serial numbers of each implant. 6 Zimmer brand and 1 MIS brand. Zimmer is considered to be top of the line alongside BIOMET 3i and Nobel Biocare. MIS has been around since the 90's but has really come on strong lately as a very, very good implant with a good thread design. MIS is an Israel based company...




Time to say adios to Dr. Gonzalez. A great guy and a skilled doctor...




It was a good appointment as they all have been. One more to go on Friday with Dr. Prada.

Thanks for reading!
