When Margaret Lanouette lost her false teeth in the toilet, she was told that she must wait until 2016 before she could receive replacement dentures.
However, a dentist from Ottawa offered to provide 64 year old Margaret with new dentures.
Dr. Patrick Roy kindly fitted both upper and lower false teeth, and now Margaret can eat properly again.
Roy determined she needed a new upper denture as well because her old upper denture was of cheap quality and “pretty ugly.”
Latest surveys show many adults are unable to afford urgent dental treatment, and even those who qualify for help may be unable to get things such as partial dentures unless they foot the bill themselves.
Even though you can have an estimated time that dentures should last, it is impossible to guarantee they will not break or even fall down the toilet, as in this case.
Thanks to the kindness of dentist, Dr. Roy, and the provision of dentures which would cost thousands of dollars, this lady has something to smile about.
