I’ve always been an NHS dental patient, but I’d been struggling with my teeth, and then with dentures for the last 15 years to the point that I knew I needed to have implants.
To be honest, I never felt 100% confident when I was wearing dentures- either that they would become loose or even drop out. It was beginning to affect the way I felt in social situations and I knew that there were better alternatives to dentures out there.
Shortly after I retired, I discussed the options available to me with my NHS dentist, but I really felt that I needed to be treated by someone who was performing implants and nothing else.
So, I researched the different dentists on and off for 2 months throughout the North West – I actually live near to Chester – before I made the call and came to see Gavin in Lymm.
From the moment you walk through the door of Dental Solutions, there is an air of calm. Everyone knows what they are doing, but they are all really friendly at the same time.
After meeting with Gavin who thoroughly explained the All-on-4 process to me, I knew that I had come to the right place, and I decided to go ahead with the treatment.
I was still wary about having it done right up to the point of having the procedure itself, but I needn’t have worried – I had an anesthetist Patrick to sedate me while Richard Brookshaw the implant surgeon worked away and I didn’t feel a single thing.
Nicky the treatment facilitator gave me all of the post-operative instructions which I followed to the letter such as using ice packs and taking over-the-counter pain killers. Luckily, I had no pain or bruising which I know some people do get.
You have to stick to a soft diet to begin with which is a bit boring – I got quite sick of yoghurts, but now I eat whatever I want. To anyone considering All-on-4 I would say with no hesitation- ‘Get it done!’ I’m so glad I did.
