"My implants have become a part of me, I don’t even think about them. Once they’ve been placed, there’s no discomfort as they’re taken care of like your own teeth – so you brush and floss and you forget that next one’s an implant. They just feel like they’re part of the rest of the teeth in your mouth."

"My life has changed because now I don’t have to think before I smile. I can meet people, comfortably say “Hi” and I so enjoy hearing “what a nice smile” – I work with the public every day and it’s a requirement of my job that I smile a great deal. So it’s allowed me to be much more relaxed at work and much more outgoing than I was in the past."
