This patient’s only request was to be able to eat comfortably and smile with her grandchildren again. She had a severe lifelong grinding habit that decimated her teeth causing fractures, tooth loss and collapse of her bite. She had many failing crowns with large amounts of decay which has caused her stress and pain. She wanted the best possible outcome and was ready to do whatever was necessary to restore her dental health. Following many lengthy discussions, we all agreed her best option was to consider a full upper implant retained denture, more commonly referred to as “Smile in a Day”. Her treatment plan required the coordination and treatment of several specialists, much patience on her part, and resulted in an impressive result. “Dr. Lomke is impeccable and thorough in his treatment. I knew I had a lot of treatment to be done and was tired of being sent to multiple offices for various procedures. Dr. Lomke was able to accomplish all procedures in a comprehensive manner and I love my teeth and love the fact that I can smile confidently again”
