Francis’ Smile Story with Gerard Skeffington at the Tooth Doctor
Francis attended a complimentary consultation with our Smile Advisor as he was unhappy with his smile. During this consultation our Smile Advisor listened to Francis’s concerns and helped put a plan in place to start his Smile Makeover.Francis attended the practice for a full implant assessment with our implant dentist Gerry as he had opted for a fixed solution to replace his failing crowns. This appointment involved a thorough clinical examination as well as a CBCT scan to make sure Francis was suitable for the proposed options. After discussing all of his options with Gerry, Francis decided to go ahead with dental implants as this would give him the best outcome.
Francis came along to our hygienist to ensure his mouth was healthy before we started his Smile Makeover journey . A deep clean was carried out together with oral hygiene advice, to help him keep his mouth clean and healthy at home.The next step for Francis was to have his teeth extracted and during this appointment we made sure the experience was pain free. We also used plasma socket preservation to help with the healing process and bone regeneration. A denture was also fitted to maintain aesthetics during this time.
After a couple of months Francis came back to have his implants placed and we tried to make sure sure this was a comfortable experience for him. Another couple of months later, Francis’s implants were checked to confirm they had integrated and healed well and we then got to work making his final bridgework which was later completed and fitted, completing his new smile.He was over the moon with the treatment and rated his new smile a 10/10. A final hygiene appointment was carried out for a deep clean and to show him how to effectively clean his new implants at home. Francis was so happy with the experience at our practice he decided to join our ‘Pain Free Plan’ to maintain his new smile and see us regularly.
“Totally love it, takes me back to my younger years. Gerry was great, second to none..”
