Doctors Comments

This lady presented to our clinic with advanced gum disease and had lost many teeth over time. She had an upper denture that was very unstable and she needed to use denture adhesive whilst wearing it. She was unable to enjoy food and had lost her confidence and self-esteem. Her teeth became extremely mobile and she couldn\u2019t face the thought of having to go to full dentures.

She had advanced bone loss as a result of her gum disease and needed a significant amount of reconstructive surgery and sinus grafting which were done at the same time as her immediate dental implants but which could also possibly been avoided had she consulted us for 3 years earlier.
