“I struggled every morning to get my denture in because I would gag, so I spent every morning without my teeth in and I just hated it”

Naine came to see us after many years of suffering with an upper denture. Her holding teeth were becoming looser and looser and she finally decided that it was time to make a change. Naine had 4 implants on the same day, otherwise known as All-on-4 treatment. All-on-4 uses strategically placed implants as a secure base for complete dentures to permanently fix to. Having permanently stabilised dentures meant that Naine never has to worry about taking them in and out ever again.


“I had a denture and I hated it,” said Naine

“I struggled every morning to get it in because I would gag, so I spent every morning without my teeth in and I just hated it. I always felt incomplete in a way, it could take away my confidence. I did the rounds of various places, I had various interviews. Martin offered me something that nobody else had, which was this four implants and a fixed denture, which I felt was a really, really good idea.”


After the initial implants were placed, Naine had a provisional bridge fitted while her final teeth were being made. This meant that she never had to wear a full denture. After a few months of living with the provisional teeth, Naine finally had her permanent teeth placed and was extremely happy with the result.



“I was so pleased with the temporary ones and then I got my finals and it was just great because they just felt so secure. Having this fixed denture and not having to take my denture in and out all the time has been life changing. I wouldn’t have got better treatment anywhere else. It’s just been, I would say, very successful. I think this is probably about as good as it gets.”


We were delighted to be able to offer Naine the solution she had been looking for. Helping our patients regain their confidence and enjoy a better quality of life is a huge part of why our implant specialists, Martin and Nik, love doing what they do.


“Martin is clearly a man of integrity, you know, I got that quite quickly and that feeling increased in me,” said Naine. 

“He’s very, very meticulous. I think he’s a very, very good dentist. He treats his patients as intelligent equals. He explained everything to me very clearly, every time. Every time I was here, I’d say what are you doing today, and he’d go through it. We looked at my teeth on screen, so I think that’s a really important part of how he operates successfully, is he keeps you well informed. He just kept going and kept going until he was 100% pleased with the work that he’d done.”
