It is just over a year now that I have had my implants done by Chrysalis Dental Centres and Minuk Denture Clinic and Dental Implant Centre.
Previous to that I had spent five years trying to keep upper dentures in but with no luck. It all started when I broke a front tooth off and was talked into getting a bridge put in. That is when all my troubles began but I won’t go into that.
In those five years, I had been to see in total three dentists and one denturist without success. Eventually I lost all my upper teeth and then ended up with an upper plate that proved to be useless in my case, as I had no upper bone structure and the dentures would not stay in. When it came to implants I had been told I did not have sufficient bone and would need bone grafting and a sinus lift. I basically became a stay at home person. I tried every type of powder and paste to hold them in but like I said, no luck.
One Sunday morning when I was listening to the radio, a commercial came on regarding a consultation at Minuk Denture Clinic and Dental Implant Centre and it caught both my attention and my wife’s. We looked at each other and said, “Why not? We have given everyone else a try and so far I have had no luck.” That brings me to where I am today.
An appointment was made and I saw Manny Minuk. He relined the dentures that I had and at the same time mentioned to me the possibility of a new procedure called “All on 4 – Teeth in a Day.” He said I would be a possible candidate. Plus, with this procedure I would not need either the bone graft or the sinus lift. Well, needless to say, I passed the waiting period and now am the proud owner of permanent teeth. I am able to eat almost anything and once again have my life back. I am no longer that stay at home person. I would not hesitate to do it again or recommend this procedure to anyone else.
Thanks to Joe Minuk, Manny Minuk, Dr. Wener, Dr. Bongard and staff, and the fine staff at Chrysalis Dental Centres and Minuk Clinic and Dental Implant Centre.
