You can see why Richard is over the moon with his new dental implants.
Richard made a decision to treat himself. His decision was either to replace his car or the part-dentures that he had worn since he was 17 to disguise the gaps in his smile.
After hearing an advert on the radio and reading patient information on the Queensway Dental website, he phoned and booked an appointment to see Dr. Paul Averley to find out about the options for dental implants and discuss the problems he was experiencing with his current denture.
Richard had been faced with difficulty every time he smiled as the denture would become stuck in his top lip and it was often awkward to smile without his having to physically put the lip back in place.
It was at the initial consultation that Paul and Richard discussed the All-on-4 dental implant system which would allow Richard to have a full dental bridge placed, supported by only four dental implants. A 3D x-ray was taken which scanned his gums and bone to determine that he was a suitable patient for dental implants.
After his assessment Richard went away with lots of reading material to help him make his decision. After much deliberation as to whether to have a new smile or a new car, he made the decision and a few weeks later he booked in for the first stage of treatment.
On the day of Richard's surgery, a provisional dental bridge was fitted which looked and felt like natural teeth and was placed on his upper jaw. After a few weeks of healing time the permanent bridge, which had been made on-site specifically for Richard, was fitted.
ALL-ON-4 DENTAL IMPLANTS One of the most recent revolutionary treatments in dentistry is a technique called All-on-4 dental implants and they are offered at Queensway Dental.
This innovative treatment has completely transformed patients' lives across the North East, whereby full dentures or failing teeth can be replaced by just four implants - all on the same day.
It is an ideal solution for those who have loose dentures, failing crown and bridge work, severe bone loss or gum recession, or those who think they may not be suitable for traditional dental implants. The results are outstanding - a fully fixed, nonremovable arch of dentures on the same day.
Richard chose to have All-on-4 treatment at Queensway Dental and said afterwards: "The best part for me was being able to enjoy hot crusty rolls again! With wearing a denture I would never have contemplated this, especially when eating out at a restaurant, but now I can eat and smile confidently."
Unlike denture-wearers, those with All-on-4 can enjoy and benefit from: ?A permanent set of teeth that both look and feel natural and that won't fall out at embarrassing moments ?An uncovered upper palate allowing for more taste when enjoying meals ?A stable bite force allowing patients to eat the foods they enjoy ?Reduced sagging around the mouth which would normally make the face look older ?No more adhesives, creams or nightly removal ?No more sore spots or gagging Ready for your new smile?
