Ms T - Bridge
“I’m scrupulous about cleaning my teeth but was really concerned as I still seemed to get bad breath all of the time. I had a bridge for a front tooth that I thought was OK but Dr Jukes was concerned about the shape of the false tooth where it sat next to the gum. I didn’t really pay too much attention to what he said but when Niamh, the hygienist, pointed out that there was plaque underneath it I knew that was what was causing my bad breath. The shape of the false tooth made it impossible for me to remove the plaque.
“Niamh spent time drawing a diagram to explain how the shape was causing a problem and I decided to have it replaced. Now it’s a dream to clean and I can confidently speak with people without worrying about my breath smelling.
The false tooth on the previous bridge was much longer than my natural teeth so that there wasn’t a gap at the top. Dr Jukes asked the laboratory to put pink plastic around the top of the false tooth. It’s now the same length as my real teeth and the plastic looks just like gum. My smile looks more balanced and I was thoroughly impressed by Dr Jukes professionalism and his attention to details”.
