I would like to tell you how thrilled I was to receive this testimonial from a patient after a lengthy but incredibly satisfying treatment that I recently completed. Here it is in his words.
“Implant technology is awesome but you have to have the right person doing them. I would recommend for anyone to see Colin, he’s meticulous and really knows his business.”
Paul Elliott, Grantham
I have a nine-tooth bridge secured onto four implants. I call them ‘my teeth’ because that’s how they feel. I can eat anything I like and my teeth blend in absolutely superbly. I’m delighted.
I first had implants ten years ago when I was 47 and I now have eight in total. The reason I have so many is because I was a smoker, which has accelerated gum disease. I stress the ‘was’ – I gave up smoking about a year ago. Apart from smoking I have done everything by the book. I attend the dentist regularly and I do as I’m told. If I was told I needed to visit the dentist twice a year, I did. If I needed to see the hygienist every four months, I made sure I visited that often. Smoking has definitely been the cause of the loss of my teeth. Smoking is great and I enjoyed it but there are serious consequences.
I found The Dental Health Centre by searching on the internet. I had no prior knowledge of them whatsoever but they were very good when I gave them a bell and I would now recommend for anyone to see Colin. Colin really knows his business; he’s meticulous and has an eye for detail. His knowledge is second to none.
Let’s be honest,is not a pleasant experience but Colin made it as pain free and comfortable as possible. It does take a while to heal but to get the right result you have to be patient.
To save money, I opted to have a plate for four months instead of a temporary bridge and I hated it. Now I’ve got my new bridge fitted it is sheer heaven. You know when you look at some people and you can tell they’ve had work done? Well I didn’t want to look like that. I wanted my teeth to blend in and they absolutely do. Colin’s attention to detail is amazing – I’m so pleased.
Without a shadow of a doubt it is possible to get implants at a fraction of the price abroad but it’s not the answer. I would shy totally away from cheaper alternatives. The Dental Health Centre uses Straumann implants and they are excellent. If there’s a problem, I could pick up the phone and Colin would see me straightaway. Even if you managed to get cheap flights, there’s the inconvenience of travelling back for appointments and the cost would soon add up, it’s just not worth it.
I started a chauffeur company last year and have been in the service industry all my life. My smile and teeth are vitally important to me and I’m delighted with how they look.
