Alexandra came to see us as a 51 year old woman who had lost her smile and felt miserable. She had 4 front crowns, fillings, teeth missing and receding gums. After an awful experience at a dentists 20 years ago, it took until 2 years ago to visit again to ask for help with her old crowns and receding gums. The dentist then took pictures and said she would send them off to see if anyone within the area could do anything with them. The answer that came back was no! She has never been back to a dentists since.
Alexandra was so disappointed as after 20 something years, she had plucked up the courage to go back to a dentist only to be told there was nothing that could be done. Although she didn’t know what she wanted, we knew we could help once and for all. We discussed implants or dentures for the spaces at the back of her mouth as well as addressing the main issue of gum health. In the end Alexandra decided implants and a course of perio gum treatments was the best path forward for her and is amazed with the results!
