I had two implants because of the loss of two teeth from decay. The alternative was a denture which I found to be a nuisance. I had to remove it when eating etc. I felt self conscious when smiling because of the gap where the two teeth had been. I received detailed information and advice throughout the process. The dentist explained why the process was so lengthy and what would happen at each stage. I was delighted with the end result and it was worth the wait. I feel more confident now when I smile. However, most of the time I hardly think about the implants being there. I look after them pretty much like I do my other teeth. The staff were all friendly and helpful. I would recommend implants to anyone who can afford it. My husband kindly treated me to them as a birthday present.
