This lady, in her 40s, presented to the surgery with her hand covering her mouth. She was embarrassed and nervous of dental treatment. She presented with mobile teeth and bleeding gums because of her gum disease. After consultation with Dr Bohara and our hygienist, she attended the hygienist for several visits to have gum treatment. Her teeth are now stable and she sees the hygienist ever 3 months for regular maintenance. Her confidence has sky rocketed and she seems like a different person from the one we initially saw.
