“I’d worn a partial denture for over 65 years since an accident knocked out my front tooth at the age of 11. When I reached retirement I started getting problems with my lower teeth, but I knew I didn’t want full dentures. Steve fitted 5 implants in the upper jaw to hold an implant supported denture and 5 implants in the lower jaw to hold a fixed implant bridge.
The first thing I did when I left the Raglan Suite was eat a carrot! Something I’d never been able to do! Following that I bit into an apple and then had some chewing gum! It was fantastic to be able to re-discover all of these things – and with absolutely no fixative!
I’d also like to add how very easy it is to keep the implant supported dentures clean. The clip system means that although the teeth are very secure and stable, they are very easy to remove for cleaning – you just pop it out and pop it in. It’s marvelous!
I am particularly impressed with how my new teeth have been made to look like real teeth, even having the wear patterns that a person of my age would have. Everyone thinks I still have my real teeth, they don’t question it at all, which is exactly what I wanted.”
