A Smile To Suit 19-Mar-2010

I joined Thurlow Dental Care in October 2004. My role as Business Support Officer entails a high level of professionalism and responsibilities. For my career and as a representative for the company, I felt that my smile needed to be improved. My front teeth were crooked and I had always wished for whiter teeth.

I had expressed an interest in cosmetic dentistry to my previous dentist but the practice did not offer cosmetic options.

At Thurlow Dental Care, you can choose from a wide range of cosmetic options, I was thrilled to learn about Invisalign, a clear brace that fits over the teeth and is removable. I was 27 when I started treatment and did not want to have fixed brackets to straighten my teeth. Invisalign was the best option for me as it did not affect my confidence whilst wearing the braces. Some of my friends did not notice for months! The most exciting part of my treatment was seeing what my teeth would look like after straightening. The dentist showed me what my teeth would look like at each stage of the straightening process. It took 12 months to straighten my teeth and it flew by, I have since whitened my teeth and am so pleased with my smile, I never realised my smile could look so great!

It’s great that you can book a free cosmetic consultation, hear all your options, take away the information and then digest. There’s no pressure to book an appointment but you are welcomed if you do. I feel my whole image has changed with my smile, I feel much more confident within.

I have recommended family and friends to Thurlow Dental and Facial Aesthetics and continue to do so. 

We have regular open evenings at Thurlow Dental Care, which you are very welcome to attend. If you would like to learn more about the Invisalign treatment, please call us on 02380 692653 to book your free Invisalign consultation.

Replacing uncomfortable dentures with permanent teeth 19-Mar-2010

Marianne’s story: I first thought of having ‘All-on-4’ when I commented to Dr Justus Dirks, my dentist, that my dentures, (full dentures on my upper jaw) were slipping, dropping slightly. I was scared that this would happen in front of other people, for me, this was undignified and created a fear of embarrassment.

Justus explained Thurlow Dental Cares new procedure of ‘All-on-Four’ dental implants. Having spoken to my husband who gave me great encouragement, I decided the benefits certainly outweighed the costs. If I thought about replacing my dentures every two to three years, this would be the same as paying the implant cost certainly.

Justus had time for me to ask all the questions I had, and to go through exactly what was going to happen. A CT scan was the first stage in the implant process, which Justus helped me through. He met me at the Nuffield hospital and came with me for my appointment. The scan itself, actually only took a couple of minutes.

My next appointment with Justus was to look at the scan pictures; this was great as I could see that I had healthy bone density and an overall picture of good health. After this I waited for four weeks for my permanent teeth to be designed and made. I had a 2 and a half hour appointment for these to be fitted.

On the morning of my treatment I was apprehensive. Justus allowed plenty of time for me to ask any questions, complete the treatment and for me to look at my new teeth, to make sure I was completely happy with the final look. I was surprised, I felt no pain or discomfort, I felt more relaxed as Justus talked to me throughout the treatment, making me aware of each stage and keeping me informed.

Gilly, the nurse, phoned me on the evening after my implant surgery and the next day, which I found very comforting. The nurse and the dentist were very exact and reassuring throughout the whole procedure. They looked after my needs, comforting me foremost, and working gently and carefully, I nearly fell asleep during the treatment! I certainly feel that Thurlow Dental Care have met my expectations.

Now I have had ‘All-on-four’, I have found three major benefits, Taste, Texture and Temperature. I used to add salt to my food to add flavour, now I can taste my food, feel the texture, things I’ve missed for years. I don’t have to cut apples up before I eat them!

In my opinion, Thurlow Dental Care are leaders in dentistry. The patient care by all staff was extremely professional, reassuring and very supportive. All the promises that Justus made have been met. I feel absolutely happy with my smile, I feel totally more confident as my teeth now are so natural looking. My life has changed on a daily basis. No more worrying, just great big smiles.

Jaqueline, having recently experienced implant dentistry at Thurlow Dental Care comments ‘It has given me massive confidence, before I would hold my hand to my face when I smiled, now I love to smile’.

Jaqueline's story

Implant dentistry was the ideal solution for Jaqueline. Jaqueline was not aware of implant dentistry or of how fast it was evolving. ‘I thought that this only happens to people in magazines, not the normal working person on the street’. Jaqueline was delighted to learn that she would not have to have full dentures. This innovative dentistry could change her life. She didn’t want to have dentures in ‘a pot’, she wanted to solve her problem and move on with her life. Jaqueline says the care was better than she could have ever imagined, ‘I could phone the nurse day or night, and the nurse phoned me in the evening after my treatment and on my first Monday morning back to work’. Of the whole experience she says ‘I just cannot believe how plain sailing it was, not once did I feel any pain’. After her treatment Jacqueline went on a week-end retreat to come to terms with her loss and new beginnings. It was important for her to come to terms with her experience and to learn to feel normal again. She feels ‘the aftercare was fantastic’. Now Jaqueline, who can’t stop smiling, loves her new smile.

Following her initial consultation, Margaret was provided with a full written treatment plan, detailing all her options and the costs. Margaret was confi dent that Thurlow Dental Care could provide the smile she had always wanted. Now the treatment is complete Margaret comments ‘it was so gentle, you could fall asleep, it was an uplifting experience’, Margaret says ‘I can honestly say, that in all the years I have regulary attended other practices, I have never felt so happy and confident going in, and so very pleased with the whole experience, on the way out.
