‘Before Mark came I had teeth put on a denture and I wasn’t happy with that at all. I felt old before my time; I discussed this with Mark and he put teeth onto a metal plate. It’s impacted the way I smile, I look normal again.’ Elizabeth
I have a very severe gum disease, maybe caused by some rheumatoid arthritis. What happens is that, unfortunately, the teeth fall out, become very loose, or have a lot of infections, abscesses. The teeth become gradually loose as the gums recede, and then, I lose the teeth.
Mark made me, just for me, a metal appliance.
Well, it is like a plate, a metal plate. As the teeth have fallen out over the years, he has added the teeth to the plate. It's just been absolutely fantastic. Cosmetically has been fantastic.
Before Mark came, I had teeth put on a denture, and I wasn't happy with that at all. I felt old before my time, and I badly didn't want to feel like this. I discussed this with Mark as well, so he, again, put this onto a metal plate, both the top and the bottom.
It's impacted an awful lot the way I smile. I look normal again. I do feel that, at some stage, I may well have to proceed to either implants or another denture, which he told me about in long detail, took as much time as I needed to explain and show me everything.
I used to steal aspirin from my mother's cupboard because I was so frightened of going to the dentist until she caught me. The dentists I have had before Mark have been okay. But since using him, I never mind. I just think, "Oh, I'm off to see Mark today," and that is exactly how I feel about it.
