Dental Implants – Barbara

Barbara is so happy with her dental implants she forgets she is wearing dentures.

She can now eat many foods that no longer get stuck under her plate which was very uncomfortable, and she no longer needs to use denture glue to fix her dentures.

“I had my treatment because when I was 23, I lost my teeth. After having two children, they started to crumble. It was due to the lack of calcium so they thought it would be better for me to have them out. So I had them out, and I’ve had dentures, obviously, the rest of my life, up to the last two years where psychologically, I thought, “Oh, food was getting underneath my plates.” I couldn’t eat certain things like tomatoes with pits filling them. I became really uncomfortable and I became quite conscious of it.

The response from others has been, “Wow, you look different.” I suppose the people, obviously, that know me, are the only ones who realized I’ve gone through what I went through. Yeah. They all thought I’d done good and I should have done it before.

The benefits since I had them done it’s, yes, I can eat more foods than I could eat before, and I don’t get all pieces under my plate. And I do forget, actually, that I’ve got dentures in, where before, I used to have to fix them with Fixodent, etc. I don’t have to do that anymore.

I cannot fault them in any way. They were very professional. They explained everything as the processes went along. Obviously, I was very nervous at the beginning because not have been to the dentist for such a long time, but they put me at ease.”
