If you have an important event coming up, perhaps a wedding or a special birthday, and you want to ensure your teeth look good, make sure you leave enough time.
Patients want their new smile to last well beyond the big event so we don’t want to rush and cut corners.
Moreton Dental Care recommends allowing 6 to 8 months for major treatment like dental implants.
Here’s Margaret’s story about how she achieved her wedding day smile:
Mother-of-three Margaret Pauling was beaming from ear to ear on the day of her youngest son’s wedding- thanks to the dental implants she had fitted at Moreton Dental Care.
The four implants securing a fixed upper arch of teeth enabled her to thoroughly enjoy the occasion.
Not only could she smile for the cameras with confidence but also laugh with friends and family, and eat anything she wanted without fear of the consequences.
Margaret from Liverpool told how she had had crowns fitted as a teenager and after having had them replaced so many times over the years she had become embarrassed to smile.
She also felt her poor teeth were affecting her health, and when her third son announced his wedding plans she decided to take action and find a more permanent solution to her dental problems.
Dr Paul Sherrard carried out the implant treatment over a period of six months, from the extraction of her crowns to the placement of the implants and fitting the new teeth.
Throughout the whole process Margaret was never left without teeth, and had temporary bridges until the final fitting of the new permanent bridge.
“The whole thing has been fabulous from start to finish,” said Margaret who had felt the hardest part would be having the crowns extracted.
“I felt once the teeth were gone that’s the last, but I’ve never looked back. The implants were very easy to put in, the teeth came out without pain, my health has improved, and Dr Sherrard made sure the treatment was finished ready for the wedding. I can smile now and laugh and eat anything I want. Its been absolutely fabulous.”
