7.30am start for me and Steph today! It is a busy day at Woodborough House. Nick was seeing one of his patients for some extensive implant treatment. This lady is having 10 dental implants placed today. She has been having trouble with her dentures for years, so she has decided to do something about it. In order to make her dentures more stable, easier to eat, her speech improved, and a better quality of life she is having implants placed to help secure her dentures. Think of it as lego (but without the multicolour blocks and lego men)! Dental implants are placed into the bone, using guided surgery equipment to ensure the procedure is completely accurate and the position of the implants are in the correct place. New dentures are then made, which will inter-lock with the implants when in the patients mouth. Those baby’s won’t budge!!! The implants ensure great ancorage of the dentures, making them more stable for the patient. It will make eating easier, speech improved and the patient will hardly know they are wearing dentures. Many patients who have this treatment ask themselves “why didn’t I do this sooner?” The patient also had the advantage of having IV sedation with Donny. This is a great bonus, as time goes by very quickly and Donny can provide antibiotics to help the healing process and time.
If you are fed up of loose dentures, and feel you need something more stable, then feel free to ask one of our Team about dental implants. We can provide you with some information and discuss the treatment for you. You can also check out the links on the website, for some night time reading. We all know our patient will be smiling with her new dental implants.
