Dennis’s Story – Upper All on Four

I first broke my upper front tooth when I was 15 and I have lived with a partial denture for many years until gradually over the years my surrounding teeth also worked loose and I faced losing two or three teeth more at the top which were all failing. I knew I didn’t want to live with full dentures so I looked around for alternatives, and implants were a key consideration.

It was a major decision for me and so I did a lot of research online to find the best person to perform the implant. The patient testimonials and information were really helpful on the Dental Solutions website, in particular, I read a lot about Richard Brookshaw and his wealth of experience impressed me- I also liked the fact that he was a lecturer for Nobel Biocare and that he went all over the UK to place implants for his patients. I knew I was only going to do this once and I, therefore, wanted it done properly by the best person available. I went along for a consultation with Gavin and decided that the team there were the best people for me.

I came back from my holiday in Greece the day before the upper All on Four procedure itself so it all felt slightly unreal. I arrived at the practice first thing in the morning and I admit I was quite apprehensive when I met Nicky and then the rest of the team. But by 2.30pm I was on my way home. I thought I would be in more pain but the sedation was very good indeed – I felt as though I was coming and going in awareness of what was going on throughout the procedure – the time just flew by and I really didn’t feel any pain. My recovery afterwards was very straightforward too – all controlled with some paracetamol with very little swelling and no bruising whatsoever.

Now the treatment is complete I can eat pretty much whatever I want- crunchy snacks, crusty bread, I can even bite into apples which I hadn’t done since I was 15! I smile with a lot more confidence now knowing that my denture isn’t going to slip. Your face is what everybody sees – it’s your window on the world and I feel much less inhibited than I did before and much happier now. I would highly recommend Dental Solutions to anyone considering implants or All on Four – I can’t fault them at all for the care I received and the results they achieved. Thank you all!

Initially I was quite apprehensive about having 2 implants, but upon my consultation with Gavin ., i felt encouraged by his knowledge and advice . The whole experience in a very relaxed atmosphere could not have been any better. I am well impressed by their professionalism and expertise in this Practice and would most certainly give them a Top Class recommendation .

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.
