I have had dental “problems” all my life – receding gums, bone loss, need of fillings, and dentists who somehow made me feel guilty for experiencing all of this. I tried hard to follow all of the guidelines they gave me for making my teeth, mouth and gums more healthy, and nothing seemed to work!
A few years ago, I knew I needed to do something different, and I went to a dentist in Hungary. The two male dental surgeons were unkind, arrogant, and apparently more interested in their dental prowess than in their “patient.” They told me I needed to have nearly all my teeth extracted, and then go through some complicated procedure. With my degree of bone loss and gum deterioration, I could never have implants.
This upset and immobilised me for a couple of years! I am a holistic healer, and I desperately tried to heal my teeth and gums, whilst being blind to the fact that the situation was deteriorating.
Eventually, a friend of mine helped me to see some sense! And somehow, really scared, I got myself to Zara Dental.
From the very beginning, there was no judgement with these dentists. The dentist who explained to me what was possible just said – well, you should move quickly before there is more deterioration, and you can have full implants upper and lower.
He explained a lot more detail and I could only hear IMPLANT! It was possible after all.
The process began a couple of weeks later, and quite honestly was intense emotionally and physically – how could having all your teeth taken out one by one not be a physical and emotional rollercoaster?
And the entire team made everything easier. As a healing therapist myself, I will not tolerate someone touching me unless it is with kindness. The dental surgeons are incredible – somehow being kind and aware of my mouth, teeth and gums, as they carried out the most intense procedures.
They are not only professionally skilled in terms of the surgery. The whole team is amazing at supporting you through the emotions that inevitably surface as you lose your teeth, and then some time later have new ones! They were always there for me as I asked my (many) questions. The receptionist also checked in with me by text regularly, which I so appreciated.
I hadn’t considered that the whole process rebuilds your gums, rebuilds your bone, and I was aware of that happening as time went by – and I get that my mouth, teeth and gums are in better shape than they have been for years!
I also don’t think I had realised how much my worry over my teeth, mouth and gums was holding me back, stopping me enjoying my life, and limiting what was possible with my self-employed work.
Honestly, I feel more alive, energised and happy than I have done for years. I have had my new teeth now for about six weeks, and it’s been totally problem free and easy – they just seem like my teeth now!
I am beyond grateful to everyone at Zara dental – and I highly recommend them for any dental issues you have.
