Donna Martin shares her dental implant testimonial, and describes how she suffered with dysfunctional removable dentures that caused her embarrassment and constant complications. Drs. Roger B. Parkes and R. Clarke Stewart used the All-on-4® dental implant technique to support her new natural-looking dentures. Donna's life has completely made a turn for the best, and she credits the specialists at Periodontal Associates of Jackson for her improved quality of life.
My name is Donna Martin and I was referred to Dr. Parkes in May of 2015 after four years of dealing with a dental allergy after I was fit with an upper denture. So I only wore my denture when I had to go to work. I came home and became a recluse. I didn't work in the yard, I didn't go to social events.
Dr. Parkes and his staff helped me through that. When I first saw Dr. Parkes in May of 2015, I had very little hope because I had been to several dentists. One had done conventional implants with poor results. I had a dentist tell me there was absolutely no hope for my . . . for coming up with a permanent solution for my dental allergy.
And I desperately wanted a permanent solution and so when I saw Dr. Parkes and his staff for the first time, immediately, they made me feel at ease. He actually changed my life in that first consultation. Dr. Parkes took the time to investigate my dental allergy, came up with a permanent solution, did the surgery on four implants in June of 2015. And I now have a beautiful, permanent zirconium prosthesis that I am more than happy with. It's changed my life. I've lost 50 or 60 pounds over the past year. I've got my life back. I exercise. I work in my yard. I go to work and enjoy life now. I cannot thank this office enough.
