"I had always been blessed with good teeth, but side effects from medication I had been prescribed had caused me problems meaning my teeth had started to decay. I was referred to Queensway to have my decayed teeth removed, so I had known about the practice for some time. After having my teeth removed I was provided with a set of NHS dentures, however I wasn't ever 100% happy with them.
I really struggled with my lower denture as it would never stay stuck for long and I found it impossible to eat without removing it. It became a complete nuisance in public, making simple things like going out for the day or going to a friend’s house for something to eat really difficult.
I had picked up a leaflet about dental implants during my previous visit to the Queensway and when I started experiencing problems I asked my dentist to refer me for a consultation.
The team on reception were great and I managed to get an appointment that same week with a Queensway dentist. I was able to get my points of view across to him and trusted that he understood me. The nurse was also very nice indeed and the receptionists were professional but still very good fun. I must have visited the practice at least 20 times within the year and everyone was always fantastic.
During my consultation my dentist explained all of the treatment options available to me which included replacing my denture, mini implants or All-on-4 dental implants. I made my decision instantly. I had come to the practice knowing what I wanted and the All-on-4 system offered me exactly what I was looking for. I would be able to get the permanent solution I wanted, all on the same day. The only aspect that I had to work around was the cost of the treatment, but all of the finance options were explained well and I was able to go ahead with my treatment choosing the most suitable option for me.
My smile now is great. Obviously I wanted my teeth to look good but it was the functionality of my teeth which was most important to me. It’s made such a big difference socially, especially as I can go out for something to eat and not be worried or conscious of having to remove my denture. It’s marvellous.
My family dentist has since retired so I now see my dentist and hygienist, for my routine dental care."
