Patient Jackie is in the first stage of teeth in a day treatment. She has had 12 Adin implants placed across the upper and lower arch, with two temporary fixed bridges fitted. When the dental implants have integrated with the bone in four months time, Dr Nikolis will make the permanent porcelain or composite fixed bridge.
Jackie shared her experience. “Having implants is a massive decision, the procedure, the aftercare, the healing process, and the impact on your day-to-day life all need to be considered. George, Jade and team were patient, informative and extremely helpful at all stages of my treatment. I felt I could ask any questions so that I was aware of what to expect at any point along the process,” Jackie said.
“On the day, I knew what to expect in advance, everything was explained to me as the treatment progressed and all the information I needed for the following two weeks was provided to me.
“It’s essential that you trust your team when undertaking such a massive change, and I can honestly say that I do.
“I am four weeks post-surgery now and all is healing well. I know I can contact the team if I do have any concerns and I am looking forward to getting my final bridges made and fitted in a few months' time.
“Thanks to you all at the practice, I know it’s your job, but you all do it very well and having had a torrid time over the last 12 months with my teeth, I’m not sure you realise how much of a reason you’ve given me to smile and be happy about my teeth again.”
