I came to Bristol Dental Specialists, as a
Former orthodontic patient of Darren, having found myself in dire need of help after poor dental work elsewhere led to a cracked root and over 18 months of pain, infection and misdiagnosis by my regular dentist.
My first consultation was with Lyndon who identified the source of my problem and advised that the tooth was beyond saving, referring me to Adrian.
Adrian has been incredible. I had nerve damage arising from the previous issue and he supported me through that, extracting the broken tooth and installing an implant. Every step of the journey I’ve felt well cared for, have been advised and made fully aware of what’s happening, received great aftercare and follow up and now we’re here. My implant journey (for the moment) complete but with full knowledge that I have a specialist in whom I have absolute confidence should the need arise for further work.
The implant process itself was far more straightforward than I’d anticipated; the alternative for me had been an appliance (bridge work) but I’m really happy that I opted for the implant. It looks exactly as my tooth had, the alignment is perfect, there’s no special care required (over and above regular teeth cleaning) and I can’t understand why more folk don’t opt for this solution (I’m in my 40’s and the prospect of a removable appliance just wasn’t on my horizon.
I’ve no hesitation in a solid five star review, I could go into great detail about the traumatic period that preceded my treatment but it’s been transformative, far beyond cosmetic benefit.
Huge thanks to Adrian and the whole team.
