"One of my lower left rear teeth had to be removed due to an abscess. I managed with a gap for thirty years, although the opposing tooth became slightly erupted.
I then lost the adjacent tooth due to a root fracture. With a two teeth gap on the lower left, I would no longer be able to eat using that side of my mouth. I didn't want to wear a denture. A bridge would have damaged the adjacent healthy teeth.
I had two implants placed by Dr Peter Sanders of Dental Confidence in Southampton. The procedure was fairly quick and only slight uncomfortable, not really painful at all.
A two teeth bridge was fitted on top of the implants three months later. I can now eat completely normally on both sides of my mouth. I have to think back carefully to remember which ones are the implants and which are my natural teeth."
