Routine dental visit leaves local girl with new set of implants
Estacada, OR – When Khiem Truong emerged from her dentist’s office last November, she half expected her cheek to be swollen, but instead found most of the puffiness to be in her chest. Truong’s visit left the young Vietnamese girl with a new set of implants. “We’re not talking the dental variety either,” boasts Khiem.
Although it took the young woman a several weeks to learn to stand upright, Troung is enjoying her new look. “I’m huge,” she says proudly.
To say the procedure caught Truong by surprise would be an understatement. “At first, I thought it was just an allergic reaction to the anesthesia,” says Truong. “But after a couple of days I realized they were here to stay.”
Truong originally scheduled her appointment complaining of an impacted tooth. Her dentist, Dr. Daryle Rico, blames the incident on his patient’s broken English. “If Khiem were any fresher off the boat, she’d be painting toenails instead of changing bed pans,” claims Rico.
Truong admits that at first she was less than pleased with the augmentation. “It cost me a fortune to have to buy all new tops,” she claimed, “but I’m saving a bundle on alcohol. In fact, I haven’t had to buy my own drinks in over a month.”
Friends and co-workers were quick to notice the new Troung. Says her long time girlfriend Tan Dlr, “Khiem’s new bod gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, ‘I’m craving some Vietnamese.”
Truong says her new look does have its drawbacks. “Well, the elevator feels a bit more crowded than it used to, and I can’t even remember what my belly button ring looks like.”
Not surprisingly, Truong is a bit nervous about her next dental appointment. “It’s just a routine cleaning,” she says, “but who knows, I could go home with a unibrow.”
