I hadn't been to the dentist for 30 years due to my dental phobia

April 15, 2019

Todays blog is a testimonial from a gentleman who hadn't been to the dentist for 30 years due to his dental phobia but has now been seeing Bal for the past two years.

"I attended for my routine inspection with a broken tooth and I knew I would need something to replace the tooth, the tooth next to it wasn't in good shape either. Mr Dhesi tried to save my tooth but unfortunately this wasn't to be and so we discussed my options.

I had two options, a plate with two teeth on or a bridge. After Mr Dhesi explained the pro's and con's of the plate verses' the bridge I decided that the better option for me would be the bridge as I didn't think I would be able to get along with a denture. I just couldn't face having to take something in and out of my mouth all the time.

I'm not a big fan of coming to the dentist and until I came to see Mr Dhesi and Meltham Dental Care two years ago I hadn't been to the dentist for thirty years due to my phobia.

The process of having my teeth out and the bridge placed was no where near as bad as I'd expected or remembered from my last experiences, Mr Dhesi has helped me with this, he is very kind and considerate and not judgemental at all.

I find everyone at the practice very kind and considerate, again nobody is judgemental regards me not having been to the dentist for thirty years.

The treatment is going to give me much more confidence and I shall able able to enjoy eating again
