Dental Implant Patient | Jo’s Story

  • Patient Testimonials - Gipsy Lane Orthodontics Reading

“I cannot believe it; I don’t need to take pain killers anymore! I can eat carrots and enjoy my food again. I look so different! It’s an amazing result, thank you, Gipsy Lane.”

Patient background

Jo, ever since a teenager, struggled with the health of her teeth. Coupled with the fact she was petrified of the dentist, she avoided the dentist for many years.

By the time she reached her mid-life, she was in constant pain, broken and missing teeth and could not eat properly. Jo had reached a point in her life where she was living on painkillers every day.

The time had come to do something about her health.

Jo had been recommended by a friend to attend Gipsy Lane, and so she plucked up a bucket load of courage and came to see us.

The Treatment – Fixed teeth on implants 

Jo’s wishes were to be out of pain and to remove all her remaining teeth.

Following an extended and consultation, we suggested that we carry out the surgery under sedation to ease her nerves and replace the failing teeth with dental implants. 

The surgery would be carried out in just one day under sedation (visiting anaesthetist). After a full day of treatment, Jo could go home with fixed functioning temporary teeth.

That night following the surgery, jo did not need pain killers as she was out of pain for the very first time in years.

Results

Beautiful fixed teeth. Completed all within three months, all carried during the lockdown, without complications.
