The 78-years-old grandma has for over a decade lived without the ability to chew after she lost her teeth.

Her story caught the eye of a family dentist, P. J. Muriuki, who volunteered to conduct a free corrective procedure with the aim of restoring her ability to chew.

Muriuki, who practices at Nairobi's Mama Lucy Hospital, examined Cecilia and promised to give her a new set of teeth.

"When I watched her, I was fascinated with what she was doing. I, however, realised that she was really struggling with her speech. I also saw her facial aesthetics and you could clearly see the her nutrition was also affected," stated the dentist.

The dental surgeon said he carried out seven complex procedures on the granny.

"During the first procedure, we checked her ridges , we took x-ray pictures just to make sure her jaws were healthy and that there were no teeth retained in her gums," he added.

Other medical procedures Muriuki said he conducted were primary impression, secondary impression, jaw registration, trying in and dental fixing which was the last one.

The procedure, which lasted at least three weeks before Cecilia could wear her denture, ultimately gave her a fresh and young look.

"She came in when she had no teeth. But within a period of three weeks, she has been provided with the dentures free of charge and courtesy of the hospital,"

"We are very happy as a hospital and the message here is that we are determined to go extra miles to achieve desires of our patients," said Musa Mohammed, Medical Superintendent at Mama Lucy Hospital.
