Dental Implants in a Day – Vera’s Review

We are proud to be changing the lives of many dental patients by providing them new teeth in a day with dental implants. One of the first patients treated was Vera Durrant who came to us with a full upper denture and we have undertaken an immediate load Teeth in a Day upper fixed bridge.  The transformation is remarkable – It is a great treatment for carefully prepared patients.  Vera is the receptionist for a local referring dentist who is a part of our Study Club and she has written an account of her experience of treatment.

Teeth in a Day – Vera’s Experience of Treatment.

“For many years I had been on course for losing my upper teeth due to gum disease which seemed like a death sentence, especially as my job as a receptionist was frontline greeting of the general public.

In January of 2013 the inevitable happened and I had to lose them and resort to a full upper denture.

Although the denture was very good aesthetically my confidence was very low, to the extent I didn’t want my husband to see when they had to be removed to be cleaned and being very conscious when eating out.

I had thought about having an implant removable denture which resulted in me going to see Anthony Bendkowski , Oral Surgeon, at The Implant Experts for a consultation.  This turned out to be the best thing I could have done.  From the moment I arrived the staff made me feel so relaxed and more like an old friend than a patient.

The consultation itself was thorough, concise and in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere.  I was not rushed at all and was given plenty of time to ask questions or voice any concerns I had.  Everything was explained in full detail including pictures and drawings, plus no false promises were made.  I knew exactly what would be happening and what could happen should things not go to plan.  At this consultation the all Teeth in a Day fixed restoration was suggested and explained in full detail.

This procedure meant I would have a full upper permanent restoration all in one day. The four implants would be placed and the restoration attached which meant I would leave with a fixed smile (not literally!).  This certainly appealed to me and I couldn’t wait to get started.  The thought of not having to remove the teeth was like a dream – no more embarrassing moments.  This would be the first stage and after approximately 3 months the definitive restoration would be fitted after the implants had healed.

The whole procedure needed detailed planning and organisation between everyone that would be involved.  I was kept informed at every stage which meant I felt I was in control of my own treatment.  On the second consultation Anthony went over the procedure again and checked that I was still happy to go ahead which was so reassuring that I wasn’t being pressured into anything.  The next step was the taking of impressions and measurements plus photographs.  Again all of this was done in a relaxed yet professional atmosphere where at no time did I feel self conscious about my situation.

The next step was the day of the surgery.  Of course I was apprehensive as anyone would be having surgery but I need not have worried.  This first stage having the implants and the restoration placed was absolutely pain free and I would have no hesitation in having this done again.  The results of the Teeth in a Day were amazing as all my family friends and colleagues will testify.  The only way I can describe it is like having your own teeth back again.

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved for making this a real life changing experience and one I can smile about with confidence.  I can honestly say it is the best decision I have ever made.

Regards
Vera”
