A U.S. army veteran gets a new smile after years of discomfort and pain. Leah Townsend, a former helicopter mechanic, has struggled for many years due to her tooth loss. Sadly for Ms. Townsend dentures were not suitable because of extensive bone loss. In the end, this left her without any teeth at all. She was told that the only way this could be fixed was to have a set of dental implants. Unfortunately, she was not able to afford the treatment. This meant her daily diet consisted of blended foods and mashed up vegetables.
Luckily, world-renowned oral surgeon Dr. David Alfi, and the highly skilled prosthodontist Dr. Sergio Ortegon have come to Ms. Townsend’s rescue and agreed to do the implant surgery for free. This is all due to the Spencer Solves It program who offer help to a variety of people in need.
The introduction of dental implants has really changed the way teeth are restored. Instead of uncomfortable dentures or damaging dental bridges patients can have a fixed smile that functions exactly like natural teeth do.
