"I was afraid to show my teeth when I smiled because they were in such poor condition.
Three of my upper teeth had large gaps where old fillings had fallen out and the teeth were crumbling with decay. Several had old amalgam fillings. Some had resin composite fillings which were in poor condition. There were also some cavities. My upper front teeth were cracked and badly chipped. Many of my teeth were discoloured or stained and some had exposed roots where the gums were badly receded.
A panoramic x-ray was taken as well as colour photographs of each individual tooth. The results were displayed on a large monitor and discussed with me before a treatment plan with estimated costs was prepared and agreed.
The treatment of my upper teeth took several hours and was performed in four sessions over two days. Old fillings were removed and replaced. The broken teeth were re-built and profiled to match their neighbours and correct my bite. Cavities were treated and filled, and my cracked and chipped teeth were repaired. At my request, a CT scan was performed in order to review the bone condition with a view to future work. I requested and was given copies of all the photographs, x-ray and CT scans on CD-ROMs to take away with me.
The final session was a full hour with the hygienist and included a useful discussion on cleaning and flossing techniques.
I can smile and show my teeth with confidence again.
The cost for the entire process was just £650 – Amazing value!
I would recommend this form of dental tourism to anyone who has concerns about the cost or quality of service which may be available to them at home.
I chose Krakow because the direct flights were convenient for me. I discovered whatclinic.com and read a lot of reviews. I liked the look of Implantis and the positive reviews which I found on the site.
Once initial contact was made with Implantis, it was reassuring to learn that the clinic could assist in the selection and booking of accommodation and with airport transfers. I found this particularly useful as this was my first visit to Poland.
When I attended the clinic, my first impression was of the bright and modern facilities, and of the warm and friendly welcome which I received from all of the staff. It was refreshing to feel that staff were able to offer their full attention without seeming distracted by other matters. I felt comfortable and fully included during the entire process from the initial form-filling, x-rays, CT scans and photography, through the intensive remedial work and the final session with the hygienist. It was clear from the start that my health, comfort and wellbeing were the first priority of the entire team. Each part of the process was discussed and fully explained, so I was left in no doubt as to the expected outcomes at every stage. I was particularly impressed with the extensive range of up-to-date equipment which is available for use in the various treatments.
Dr Tomasz Bobek is clearly an experienced and dedicated dentist who has an excellent ‘chairside’ manner, radiating reassurance and professional competence in equal measure during the several hours of treatment which I received over the two-day period. I am sure that this would have been a far less pleasant experience under some of my former practitioners.
I now look forward without trepidation to the next phase in my treatment.
A big thank you to Team Implantis!"
