"A friend of mine suggested that I come here and I was really glad that I did!
After I lost nearly 100lbs in about a year and a half, my dentures didn't fit right - they were loose. I was told that nothing could be done to make my denture tighter, but I knew there had to be some solution. At this point, I knew I needed new teeth, so when I came in to see Brock, he suggested something I never knew of before...
First off, when I came to Vandor Denture Centre, I was treated like royalty. Right away someone was there to meet me and offer me coffee, tea and whatever else I might want. They just made me feel so comfortable. It's like coming home to family. When Brock came in, he checked out the old denture in my mouth. He suggested that in order to keep my bottom teeth strong in one spot that I should get dental implants. I wasn't sure what they were. It was a little expensive for the money I had. I was skeptical and scared for awhile and I really thought about it, but I just felt like it was going to change my life. I came back two or three times to talk to him about it. He showed me the teeth and how the dental implants fit in the teeth and all that. He basically explained every detail about what would happen and how I would feel and what it would be like...what the difference would be. I was able to hold a model of the teeth in my hands and see how they looked and what they could do. Well, that's what really helped me make the decision and I thought, 'you only live once so I might as well try it'.
I'm ever so grateful that I got them put in. The day I went in and got the implants, it took a couple of days for the soreness to go away, but after that it was just marvellous. I couldn't believe how good it felt. I can eat anything I want. My life before dental implants was actually terrible because I couldn't eat much. My bottom teeth were always all over the place, but now I can eat steak, apples and all kinds of things that I could never eat before. So I can actually enjoy my life and eat the same as the rest of my family. It's a wonderful thing, it gives you freedom. With the dental implants, you're just like anyone else and it's terrific, it really is. If I would have tried it years ago I would have been so much happier. They look so good and fit so well and I'm just very very happy with them. It was a wonderful experience coming here!"
Thanks to Barb for sharing her story with us! She had two implants placed to stabilize her lower denture. The lower denture simply snaps into the implants like a button on your jacket. If you're wanting more information about dental implants or dentures, call us anytime! Consultations are free.
