Patients should not eat for at least three hours till the anaesthesia wears off. They should not eat or drink anything that is too hot or too cold for a few days. They should avoid very hard food.

He explained everything to me and made me feel very calmCarol, UK, 24 08 17

I had two front teeth missing. I fell and knocked them out and for years I thought of getting implants but thought they were too expensive. Food was sticking up under my false teeth and my gums were raw so I decided to give it a go. To work extra weekends as I was a nurse and save to get my teeth fixed. It was the best I had ever done. I have now had my implants approx 20 years and have had no problems, thanks to Marty who explained everything to me and made me feel very calm about my new teeth. I want to tell everyone who is thinking about this procedure to talk to Marty McAllister who explains everything to you in detail thanks, Marty. Very relaxing, Marty explained everything so well.

WHITE FILLINGS are now becoming a popular alternative to amalgam fillings. The new dental materials mean it is much easier to find a perfect match for the shade of a particular tooth. In most cases, it is almost impossible to see that the tooth even has a filling.
