Dental implant patient praises 'quite exceptional treatment'.

Delighted patient Marie Stacey has described her new smile as  “little short of miraculous” and says she hasn’t stopped grinning since the completion of her dental implant treatment at the practice.

Marie, 69, a former assistant director of children’s services with Wirral Education Authority, was unstinting in her praise for “the amazing level of kindness, expertise and care” shown to her by Moreton Dental Care staff who have enabled her to smile again without feeling self-conscious. 

As part of Marie’s treatment Dr Paul Sherrard placed two dental implants to secure a three-unit bridge.

Marie described Dr Sherrard’s skills as “exceptional”. and added: “The level of professional care I have experienced here has been of a quality I have never had before.”

“I cannot remember a time since childhood when I haven’t felt self-conscious about my teeth. Not any longer.  They are worth every penny, and actually there is a real delight in no longer being anxious about photos.”

Marie recalled how as a post-war child and the 10th of 11 children there was little time to care for her teeth. “We all ate sweets like there was no tomorrow and dentists were regarded with terror,”she said.

“I have managed to smile without opening my mouth for years, but now I feel completely confident.  When I look at the photos of my original teeth these new teeth are little short of miraculous,” she added.

Said Dr Sherrard: “Marie has been a delight to treat, and we are all thrilled she is so pleased with the result.  We are also very grateful for her very kind words about our team. That means a great deal to us.”

Get a fresh new look for Spring

Spring is here at Moreton Dental Care,

We can help you regain your bright, youthful air!

Say farewell to frowns, lines and wrinkles...

Say hello to happy, youthful twinkles.

A particularly enthusiastic member of staff penned this ditty to promote our "Look Ten Years Younger" evening on Wednesday, April 15,

when dentist Lucy Benbow and hygienist Kirsty Kelly will make presentations about two increasing popular cosmetic treatments- facial rejuvenation and tooth-whitening.

Lucy decided to launch a facial rejuvenation service to meet demand. Some patients who had undergone cosmetic dental treatment wanted to complement their new smiles by reducing and softening facial lines and wrinkles.   Lucy provides free consultations to give patients the opportunity to fully discuss treatment options.

At Moreton Dental Care we use Evolution Bleaching-By Enlighten, a world leader in tooth-whitening which has already produced outstanding results for many people at our Wirral practice.

The key to Enlighten’s success lies in the specially designed Evolution 'super seal' trays. 

Enlighten is used by many of the world’s leading dentists and by more than 1,000 in the UK

 

 

Dentist's praise for Paul Sherrard's high quality work

 A dentist has highly praised the work of our principal dentist Paul Sherrard after taking over the care of a woman who had been a long-standing patient at Moreton Dental Care. 

The 50-year-old woman moved house recently and was unable to get to Moreton any more so Dr Sherrard referred her to a dentist close to her new home.

The dentist contacted Dr Sherrard after the patient’s first appointment and described her dental health as  “excellent”.

 

He also described the quality of crowns and a bridge which had been fitted by Dr Sherrard at least 20 years ago as ‘fantastic’.

 

The dentist told Mr Sherrard: “She speaks very highly and fondly of the care you provided for many years.

 

I took some bitewings (x-rays) recently and she is in perfect dental health, no treatment has been needed.

 

“The quality of her restorations is fantastic and I thought you would like to know. She has no caries or periodontal disease and excellent oral hygiene.

 

“She can't remember how old her crowns or fixed conventional bridge are but estimates 20 to 30 years. They are in excellent condition.”

 

Dr Sherrard said” I’m delighted to receive such praise from a colleague, and am particularly pleased that this lady was so happy with her

 

treatment. It also shows how having regular check-ups is the best way to keep your mouth healthy.”

 

The woman attended regularly for check-ups and hygiene appointments.

Sheena's Christmas smile

School cook Sheena Thomas has got her best Christmas present ever- her confidence back.

The 52-year-old from Prenton suffered for years with painful periodontal disease which caused her teeth to deteriorate.

About eight years ago she had to have four top teeth extracted. Not wanting a denture, she inquired about dental implants but was told she was not a suitable candidate.

She persevered with the denture which made her self-conscious, but her remaining teeth continued to deteriorate, so two years ago she inquired again about dental implants and was referred by her dentist to Dr Paul Sherrard.

After stabilising her gum condition, he was able to provide implant treatment for her-new upper and lower arches of teeth permanently secured by implants.

A delighted Sheena said: “It has completely changed my life.  It’s been an emotional journey and I just wish I could have had it done years ago,” 

Sheena is now thrilled to be able to eat steak and apples again.

“I used to be terrified of going to the dentist, even to have my teeth cleaned because it was so painful. But here I’ve been made to feel at ease right from the start. Nothing has been too much trouble.”

She added: “I would recommend anyone with gum problems and is scared of the dentist to come here. It’s given me my confidence back. I feel like I’ve got back the teeth I had in my 20s.”

Dr Sherrard said: This was a massive decision for Sheena and it’s been a privilege guiding her through it to a happy conclusion.”

Amanda's dream smile

Amanda McGovern was so delighted with her new smile she signed up for a professional photo shoot.

Previously on photos Amanda, a company supervisor, says she looked like she had a missing tooth, due to a premolar being out of alignment.

Now after having just six months of orthodontic treatment the 23-year-old is smiling from ear to ear.

“It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done. Now I have the smile I always wanted,” said Amanda who explained the treatment had also dramatically improved her ability to chew.

Her newly straightened teeth gave her the confidence to have a photo shoot while on holiday.. 

Moreton Dental Care dentist Dr Tam Haque used Damon braces to straighten Amanda’s teeth, and she cannot praise him enough.

“My orthodontic treatment from start to finish was a pleasure,” said Amanda from Moreton.
