Are you pleased with the result of your dental treatment?
From the beginning of the treatment I was consulted on how I wanted to plan the entire procedure. I elected to have this treatment, which had to deal with specific problems relating to my existing teeth and jaw, over a period of about nine to ten months as this seemed the best option following initial assessment. Each stage of the treatment was then carried out carefully and with respect to my wishes. At each stage of the treatment the Practice was conscious of my needs both to eat, as normally as possible, and also to have a cosmetic appearance with which I was satisfied. With the exception of about a week, following the surgery to position the implants, I was happy with the creation of a temporary denture which allowed me to eat fairly normal foods and to improve my appearance. The final implant that I have now feels very secure and has a very natural appearance.
Has it improved your quality of life? And if so how?
Prior to the implant I was very cautious of eating certain foods as they had caused some of my teeth to break and others to loosen. They also did not have a great cosmetic look and restricted smiling to a minimum. Following the implant, I now feel that I have good quality teeth with which I can eat a whole range of food with confidence and feel happier to smile more frequently.
Do you feel more confident after your treatment?
From a cosmetic point of view, the look of the implants appears very natural, and I was given a choice about how the final appearance could be modified so that it more naturally matched with my existing teeth. I feel that has been successful.
How has the team at Beeston Dental Practice looked after you during your treatment with us?
From the initial consultation all the way through to post implant check-up, I have been very pleased with all of the staff at the Practice. Receptionists were very courteous and offered me flexibility in appointments if problems existed. All other practitioners, including Hygienist, X-ray personnel and Dental Nurses where extremely professional and competent at all times and always answered questions honestly and made the procedures less traumatic. They were also very respectful of my wishes and were able to have appointments when it was convenient to me.
Did you feel your treatment options were fully explained to you? And were you given time to decide what was right for you?
The initial consultation with Chris Navarro was very detailed and thorough, during which all of the treatment options and procedures were explained. Chris was able to draw up a plan of action, with my input, taking into consideration any wishes that I had and explained that the treatment could proceed at my pace and continue as long as I was happy with stage outcomes. I felt I had plenty of time to understand the information and agree with the plan. As well as verbal communications with Chris I was also able to keep in contact with the Practice through e-mails which also provided written details of the plan that was agreed. I always felt in partnership with Chris and never felt pressurised at any time to make a decision with which I was not happy. Chris always acted in a very professional manner but also managed to be very personal in his concern about the process and final outcome of the treatment. This made me feel very comfortable throughout all of the proceedings. Chris’s technical skills throughout were excellent and he was constantly aware of dealing with any pain that arose during any of the procedures. During each procedure Chris would inform me of what he was doing so that I was aware of how the procedure was progressing. Following the procedure he spent time ensuring that I was fully aware of what had happened and always asked if I had any questions.
Would you recommend Beeston Dental Practice to your friends and family?
From my existing dental condition, to the outcome I now have, I have been very satisfied with both the technical and personal treatment which I have received. I can recommend the Practice for its level of expertise dealing with my case.
