    Larry and Nancy Miller suffered for way too long and it got to the point where it was difficult for them to enjoy their favorite foods.

    That was when Larry, 79, learned of a patient who had similar woes and traveled a long way to see Dr. Dean Wright. The woman had MDI Mini Dental Implants from 3M ESPE placed and the results were great.

    So Larry and his wife, 78, who have been married for 56 years, decided it was time they gave it a try.

    “I was messing around on the computer and I saw a post by a lady in Florida. She said she had bad teeth problems all her life, but now had the most remarkable experience. She could hardly eat but then she stumbled across a dentist in Wichita. I thought, ‘Wow.’ ”

    The couple had grown up poor and unhealthy eating habits led to a lifetime of dental woes and ill-fitting dentures.

    “I thought we would both be candidates for something like that if it was not more fake than real,” an initially skeptical Larry said. “So we made appointments and my wife volunteered to go first.”

    After coming to Wichita, Nancy saw a variety of dentists and she had a few upper plates, but never received good dentures on the bottom.

    So they went to Dr. Wright’s Cambridge Family Dentistry practice and knew right away they were in good hands.

    “We went and talked to Dr. Wright and he was so patient and very informative,” Nancy said. “He is a gentlemen in every way and showed me all the implants and how it was and I thought, ‘that’s a piece of cake.’

    “So I went for it and my goodness, he pulled those lower teeth out, he set those implants on there and popped the other teeth right in and I have had no problems at all. Now I can a eat a raw apple and I can eat meat again. I sing his praises to the sky.”

    The couple’s new smiles not only help with eating, but their quality of life and confidence have greatly improved.

    “It’s a pleasure to sit down to the table for a snack or for dinner,” Nancy said. “I tell family and friends and everyone I meet. Plus I smile all the time now. I would do this again anytime.”

    Larry feels the same way.

    “There was not one hiccup with the process,” he said. “Both of us were raised poor and had extremely bad diets. By the time I was in my late 20s I had to have all of my upper teeth extracted. I tried to hold my lower teeth together for years but one by one they went.”

    His upper dentures never fit well and when he lost his lower teeth it was difficult to remain a “steak and potatoes person.”

    “I survived like that for quite a few years before we stumbled across Dr. Wright, who is not only a really good person but he managed to hire and train a great crew. It’s an absolute pleasure visiting the dentist.”

    He added, “It makes life 5X as enjoyable. Before when we went out, we kind of had a knack of keeping our mouths shut and talking through our lips. Now we can grin, smile and laugh. It’s amazing.”

    Nancy adds,  “It’s a precise process that works. You put them in and ‘boom’ you go out and you start living.”
