Practicing since 1989
"The highest compliment I can make is that I just put a 5 star review for Bonnie and the entire staff on Angie's List. The entire staff at Royal Palm Dentistry-from the receptionist/office admin, Dental Hygienist (Debbie), and Dr Rae was very professional. They all listened to my needs, and Bonnie took the time to listen to my needs, and questions. Bonnie is also a great communicator. After my cleaning, I did have two root canals down in prep for crowns. I was impressed how Bonnie handled me, her professionalism, and skills. The procedure was almost painless-beyond my expectations. I would reommend Bonnie and her staff at Royal Palm to any of my friends on Marco island. It is great to have such a capable dentist on the Island. "
2.) I think the hygenist was brand new. She seemed nervous and was dropping instruments, picking them up without rewashing her hands.
3.) Karen and Ashley are outstanding!"
"I was really impressed with the service at Bonnie Rae's office. I didn't have to make another appointment to get my work done. I had the work done in the same appointment. The next day I was having some discomfort. The dental assistant, Ashley, came into office on a day the office was closed. I was really impressed and happy with the overall service."

i was given a lower, made by dentist should i have gotten an upper? im assuming the tongue gets in way or do you get used to it?
There are several factors that go into the proper fabrication of a night guard. As far as which arch it is made for, my experience has shown that patients tolerate both quite well. My personal preference in my own mouth has always been a lower one that has minimal bulk against the lip. Of greater importance however, is how it allows the jaw to find it's balanced position to minimize muscle activation and spreads out any occlusal forces over all surfaces of the teeth. It should be made to allow freedom of movement of the jaw from side to side, and to disengage the back teeth with those movements. If not properly made, it can actually stimulate the muscles whereby defeating it's purpose. As the jaw position adjusts over time, it is usually necessary to make minor adjustments to the guard for maximum benefit.
