Shreveport Dentist Donates Dental Implant Procedure
Just in time for Christmas, one dentist is giving back in a pretty big way. A free dental implant. This could cost up to $3,000 but one lucky person in the ArkLaTex is going to get theirs for free.
“It’s a life changer. It will just make your quality of life better if you have the chance to do it, I say just do it,” said Margaret Jordan, a yoga teacher and all around athlete. Her physical health is important to her and that includes her dental health too. But a little while back, she noticed something wasn’t right.
“I had a fractured tooth. It was really giving me all kinds of trouble for about a year. We watched it for a year. We didn’t know it was cracked. We didn’t know what the problem was,” said Jordan. That’s when she went to see Dr. Ben Kacos.
“We pulled it, which was a breeze; the easiest thing I’ve ever done and relief was right away. I didn’t want anything to develop with the alignment of my teeth so I chose the implant,” Jordan said. Sometimes that trip to the dentist is downright scary. Jordan says it doesn’t have to be. “I’m one that even hates the shot. If I can get past the shot and Dr. Kacos is even great with that. You don’t even feel the shot. It was probably the easiest dental, one of the easiest dental things I’ve ever done.”
Dr. Kacos wants to give that gift to someone in our area.
“It’s for somebody that’s given back to the community themselves. Or maybe is a hard worker and just having a hard time. If you have a missing tooth or a tooth that needs to be taken out. If you’ve got a toothache or an abscess or broken tooth we can take the tooth out and replace it with an implant,” Kacos said. Kacos wants to give a free dental implant surgery and replacement. He says for those who suffer with dental issues, they know how impactful this could be. “They’re more than just a smile. It’s a part of our personality. It’s a part of how you feel when your feet hit the ground in the morning,” he said. And if you’re worried about the pain, Kacos says they have that covered too. “We got some tricks of the trade and we have some fantastic reviews. We do a good job at keeping people comfortable,” he said.
To enter Kacos’ giveaway, email KacosDental@gmail. You can nominate yourself or someone else. All you have to do is tell them why your pick deserves the free help. The winner will be drawn Friday so that person can have another reason to smile just in time for Christmas.
The entire process, in a traditional procedure could take a couple of office visits to finish over time. It all depends on where you are in your dental situation and where the tooth is placed.
