Applecross Dentist Post: Shoddy dentistry leaves Scottish man toothless for five years!

After receiving dental treatment in Scotland, Chris Piccini has lost all of his teeth!

Chris Piccini, 54, has been toothless since receiving dental surgery five years ago. The ordeal began when he had 16 decayed and rotten teeth removed in 2006. Chris was then told that too much periodontal tissue was lost during the surgery, so standard dentures would not be available to him.

What he got instead were custom dentures that were fitted so poorly that wearing them resulted in agonising pain and ulcers, rendering them unbearable and therefore useless. Not only was Chris in immense pain, he was also driven to hiding away inside his home.

Dental implants the new alternative to dentures?

At Image Dental in Applecross, we believe in providing you with the best in terms of treatment and service. This is why we offer dental implants, which provide you with a permanent solution to your tooth loss. We only use treatments that are safe and will only ever recommend a treatment or product that is suited to your condition.

What are dental implants?

Instead of dentures, which provide only a temporary solution to tooth loss, dental implants contain screws which are surgically inserted into the jawbone, allowing the jaw to accept them as part of your biological structure. This provides a strong and durable foundation for your new tooth, along with full restored functionality of the mouth! Imagine being able to speak, laugh and even eat with confidence again.

We use Proper 3D Planning at our practice, where we examine your condition for safety and accuracy. This helps ensure your safety throughout the process and reduces the margin for error significantly.

At Image Dental we are committed to bringing you high quality service that is safe and efficient. We will always have your needs and requirements at the forefront of whatever we do, and endeavour to keep you as educated on your treatments as possible.
