Before I had the implant, the areas would swell, and it would be difficult to chew on that side. The tooth was cracked, and I regularly had pain. Our dentist referred us to Dr. Phillips. I came in, and he put me to sleep, and I woke up with this wonderful dental implant. I don’t have any problems now. It’s healed very well, and I’m extremely pleased. The staff is extremely friendly, and Dr. Phillips was very kind and gentle. If I had a friend that needed dental work and possibly implants, I would definitely tell them to see Dr. Phillips. He is an incredible surgeon.
