This is the greatest dental office in the city!!! HANDS DOWN. They made me into a new man! A little bonding, a little gum reshaping, a little orthoddontics, a little reshaping of my from teeth, a little replacing old dark silver fillings, replacing some stained while plastic fillings and two porcelain crowns on my back teeth. Fantastic results!! The doctors all worked well together, the treatments were seamless since the specialists were all in the same office. That is definitely a plus for me. I feel much more confident when I go into court knowing I look OK rather than have people distracted by my crooked tooth. (no pun intended). I didn't want my "crooked" teeth to reflect adversely on my client's innocence or guilt. The doctor's and staff were all professional as I expected them to be. They made it relatively easy for me to undergo treatments considering the craziness of my work schedule. So thank you Dr. Kizor for straightening my teeth, Dr. Biama for my gum reshaping, Dr. James for my fillings/crown and not forgotten, the hygienist whose son went to the same college as my daughter.
II write alot of reviews. Some are critical and some are complimentary. Today I visited Michigan Avenue Dental Associates and my review is a complimentary review. My experience today was unexpected and unique for me. I have good teeth. Hardly any fillings. Yesterday I broke a back tooth and it hurt like hell, I didn't sleep a wink last night.I could see that it broke in half from front to back. The tongue side of the tooth was waving in the breeze. I asked a co-worker this morning for a reference of a dentist downtown. She said many people at our company go to Michigan Avenue Dental Asociates. So I called them. They fitted me in as best they could this morning for my emergency. Dr. James saw me. An x-ray was taken. Not to my surprise he said,"Unfortunately the tooth will need to be removed." He also said I needed a protective appliance for the rest of my teeth because he noted I was a grinder. I knew I was a grinder, My previous dentist noted it too, but he never emphasized how important it was to address my night grinding. He just made a passing comment. Dr. James on the other hand indicated it was imperative to address my grinding or else additional teeth of mine would be fracturing and/or chipping, one at a time, not necessarily needing to be extracted, but needing some fillings or crowns. After a confirmatory diagnosis by another dentist, (I like the idea of a group practice that works so professionally together), he fortunately took out the tooth today. The nerve was exposed and I didn't sleep a wink last night and having it taken out today was a blessing, even though I know I messed up his schedule. I'm going back for a protective guard and an implant. I wish I had gone to this office years ago. Thanks everyone for treating my terrible problem situation so professionally. And look forward in seeing everyone at my next visit.
