At the end of October we had a splendid time with one of our most jovial patients - Nedson, from the United States.
Nedson managed to kill two birds with one stone as the adage goes - get his dental treatment done and have an amazing holiday in sunny South Africa. Dental treatment is usually less than half the price in South Africa whilst NOT compromising on quality at Silver Oaks.
We saw a massive influx from international patients this year who are realizing the value of coming out here to get their dental treatment done.
The office staff members took sometime off to show Nedson around the city and make him feel as comfortable as possible. Here are a few tantalizing pictures from his safari vacation and some happy moments with the office staff.
Nedson was amazed at how much bigger the Giraffe are in real life. He was clearly blown away by South Africa's wildlife. How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful country.
Our December case of the month was Nedson's makeover. When we originally saw Nedson he couldn't chew properly and was embarrassed to smile. We did a full smile makeover to improve his confidence and quality of life.
Nedson had a bite that was severely worn down with mismatched teeth. We placed 8 Dental Implants to replace his missing teeth. In order to place the Implants, we had to do a thorough examination as to the amount of healthy bone available. We had to also assess risk factors and make use of 3-D scans in order to evaluate the situation ensuring optimal success. Every Dental Implant case is unique. Nedson's case was a very complex one.
By re-adjusting his bite, Nedson is now able to chew properly and smile more confidently. Dr Huson skillfully implemented the completion of the total procedure which included Nedson wearing temporary crowns in order to assess the look and feel of his teeth first. Once Nedson was totally satisfied with his new look the final crowns were placed.
Dr Huson has placed in excess 600 Dental Implants and has worked under celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the Harley Street region of London. You are guaranteed work that is of the highest quality. Dental Implants are an ideal, long term solution to replacing missing or damaged teeth. Unlike dentures you will be able to chew and bite your food with ease. The procedure can last a lifetime and there is no need for their removal in order to have your teeth cleaned.
