Yvonne’s Story – All on Four Implants

I was going through a really stressful time in my life and I discovered that as a result I was grinding my teeth, a really common symptom of stress. However this grinding was actually causing me to lose my teeth one by one – I was horrified – I’d always had good teeth all my life and I felt that I had really looked after them. I was so embarrassed about smiling, especially the gap between my front teeth so I just stopped which I suppose made me feel even worse.

All on Four implants seemed to be a good solution and so I started to research the procedure in a great deal of detail. I looked at treatments locally to where I live in Blackpool, in London and even in Turkey. Most of the research was done on the internet, I even joined a few web forums to talk to fellow patients to understand what the treatment was like.

Then I came across the Dental Solutions in Lymm website in my research and liked the level of detailed information about the treatment which was written in easy to understand language – no jargon- and I had come across a fair bit! I also liked the testimonials from people who had had implants done – it gave me a good feeling that Dental Solutions would be able to help me so I plucked up the courage and e mailed them.

I soon got a call from the treatment facilitator and we had a chat about what I was looking for. She was incredibly helpful and understanding – by the end I felt as though I’d known her for years. She suggested that I come into the practice to meet Gavin for an initial consultation.

After the first meeting, I knew that Gavin and the team were right for me. The practice was lovely, as were all the team who were very smiley and welcoming. I decided to proceed with the all on four implants treatment.

The All on Four procedure itself was a lot less scary than I thought it would be – the plan for my treatment was thoroughly explained to me in great detail. I was in no pain on the day itself although there was some discomfort in the days afterwards which I took some mild painkillers for. My son’s car broke down and was unable to bring me home on the day of the operation so Gavin organised for a taxi to take me home to Blackpool – it felt like nothing was too much trouble.

As my new teeth were being created Gavin spent a lot of time getting them right – I never felt rushed at any time- he’s a complete perfectionist and I really felt like he and the team wanted the very best for me and the quality of treatment and materials used I felt were first class.

So 10 months later and the treatment is complete. I have to say I am so much happier in myself, have got my confidence back and I am smiling once again. I have a small grandson who I love to laugh and play with. My job is as a national facilities manager in the NHS which involves an awful lot of time driving round the country meeting people and delivering presentations to them. I can now do this without a second thought to hiding my smile which is really all I ever wanted to achieve.

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.
