Lyn Jackson (Hastings)
The Upper denture teeth were too short as well as being placed too low and too far forward in her mouth. She couldn’t eat properly so just ate soft mushy food, always looked down, and felt awkward smiling. They also cut into her gums which hurt and her measurements were incorrect so there was little room in her mouth.
First John and Lyn sat down and chose more natural lighter teeth that were longer for her smile line and angulated features and discussed the new denture together.
John used a muscle-trimmed impression, eased bulbous bony areas so the denture wouldn’t cut in, placed the front teeth back and the posterior teeth more functionally inclined for better occlusal function and corrected the facial height measurement so a more natural position of the lower jaw.
A more pleasing aesthetic and functional result.
Lyn’s comment after receiving her new upper denture:
“I can now have a social life and go out. I have been too embarrassed since getting them 12 months ago but now I can smile and eat fish and chips! Thanks so much.”

“John changed my life with my new dentures. People couldn’t understand me and thought I was an ‘old goat’. I now go out to bowls something I didn’t do before and it has literally taken years off me. Locals give me a hard time saying I have had a makeover. Yes the treatment took a while as the lower had to be gradually changed to correct my jaw relationship properly but John explained all this at the beginning and yeah now it was so worth it. All I can say is thanks for changing my life and giving me my dignity back.”

We are both very happy with our new dentures. They stay well in our mouth and eating and talking is much easier.
