My dentist had told me that I wasn’t a suitable patient for dental implants because of the bone loss. Then I read an article in the press about a new procedure called the All-on-4® treatment concept and regained hope. After an Internet search of local dentists, I found out that Queensway Dental Clinic in Billingham (UK) offered the procedure, and made an appointment.
From my first consultation with Dr. Ian Lane (no relation), I felt totally at ease and confident. After giving the recommendation for All-on-4 treatment proper consideration, I decided to go ahead and made an appointment for a few weeks later to begin the design of my new teeth.
Not long afterwards, the procedure was carried out in a single day by a consultant surgeon, Rob Banks, and the final prosthesis was produced onsite by the Queensway Laboratory. Throughout the treatment I had conscious sedation and it was totally pain-free. Even afterwards there was no bruising, just some slight swelling the next day.
I cannot believe the difference All-on-4 has made in my life, and I have been astonished by all the compliments I have received. My teeth look totally natural, and my husband says that my teeth and smile are back to what they once were. Life is good!
