"I had two gaps in the lower part of my jaw which was having a negative effect on the teeth around them and affecting my ability to chew and eat food. My dentist suggested that I really should have implants, but I was quite cautious about it because it felt like it was quite a big treatment to have."
There’s no need to worry about bone graft treatment
"I came to see Nigel and he had a look, took some X-rays of my mouth and said that one option would be to have a bone graft on one side where the extraction was I had about 15 years ago. The jawbone had begun to wear down so it was eroding and I needed the bone graft to build up the jawline so that the implant would sit evenly with the rest of my teeth. I was concerned about having that treatment because it was more invasive than just having an implant, however, I think the results have worked well and I would recommend it if it’s necessary."
Flexible treatment well worth the cost
"I live near Weston-Super-Mare and I was having to come to the surgery for treatment after hours, but they fitted me in around my needs. Everyone was very helpful, very professional. The treatment is top of the range with all the latest equipment and you also get to watch television while you’re in the dentist’s chair which is always a bonus.
"I just find everything so much easier and I no longer need to worry about what I’m choosing to eat. The implants are also helping the other teeth around them too. The price of dental implants, seem to be quite a lot when you first hear what they cost, but I think the benefits of having them done are definitely worth it."
