Richmond borough resident Phyllis Hicks had been hiding something. On the outside she “had it all” with a busy life and taking care of her grandchildren. But she was struggling with an ever frustrating problem that had plagued her for 20 years.
Phyllis had lost her teeth at the early age of 45. This caused her to be confined to the limitations of dentures. Not being able to eat the foods that she treasured and loved.
Over time, Phyllis had lost most of the bone that she was relying on to support those dentures. Her face was sagging from the lack of muscle support. Sores from her dentures not fitting properly was making life miserable. Her constant fear that her teeth might pop out at any moment was paralysing her in social settings.
In her words, “dentures made me seem older than I was…both physically and emotionally!”
How Phyllis Got Her Life Back
Over Dentures On Implants or Mini Dentals Implants provided Phyllis with new options never previously available to her. Plus they are a fraction of the cost of traditional implants.
Using a precisely controlled, minimally invasive technique the implants are placed into the jaw bone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing the dentures. This simple one step procedure works for both upper and lower dentures.
Beautiful affordable result
For Phyllis, to no longer be covering her mouth self consciously and to smile confidently has put a twinkle in her eye and bounce in her step again – her family is thrilled.
