Dentures restore Graceís smile

By Peter Ndungo, Nairobi project coordinator

Grace is all smilesGrace, 67, is all smiles. She is happy because she has acquired a new set of dentures. She acquired them in August 2008, thanks to CFCA.

Grace has never put so much value to her teeth as she is doing right now. She does not have a history of dental ailments. Her problem has been brought about by age, she says. She started losing her teeth in her 50s. She never thought that teeth would stand in her way of good health until May 2008, when she lost her remaining teeth.

With her new set of teeth, she is now able to chew foods such as githeri (boiled maize and beans), arrowroot, meat, ugali (porridge made with maize flour), chapati and mandazi (baked wheat flour products). She can also chew sugarcane and fruits such as mangoes and oranges.

Her doctor suggested a gradual introduction to such food, and she can now comfortably eat every meal she pleases. Her speech has also improved tremendously, and she canít stop herself from smiling.

  1. Grace is a beautiful person and now with her new teeth
    she has a million dollar smile. Her ability to masticate
    better and more efficiently with the new dentures will
    benefit her overall health.

    Another success story for CFCA.
