How to get a new smile when you have missing and infected teeth.
Updated: Apr 30
Do you have missing, worn down or painful teeth? Have you been putting off a dental problem and don’t know where to start? These problems can cause pain, embarrassment and affect overall body health (bacteria in mouths can travel into bloodstreams). There is a way to restore your oral health and smile with fixed, natural looking teeth. Here’s Eva’s story:
● Severe bone loss
● Old, discoloured and uneven crowns
● Painful gums with infections
Eva wanted to get out of pain and find a solution to restore her oral health function and aesthetics. She felt embarrassed by her smile and wanted a permanent fixed solution. Her bone loss from gum disease was advanced causing loose and painful teeth with pus coming out regularly. If nothing was done, her jaw bone would be eaten away, just like with termites, making implant treatment extremely difficult.
All-On-4 dental implants were carefully planned and treatment was done in our practice rooms, with on-site sedation. Eva received a full arch of new teeth within 2 days of her procedure. Yvonne no longer has pain and infection or continued bone loss as the dental implants now act as artificial tooth roots that stimulate her gums. Her body thinks there are tooth roots present so it sends blood and nutrients to the area.
Eva loves her new smile, she says she looks and feels younger and healthier.
