World class is the work that sums up my impression of Dr. Motiwala.
I have started my journey back in 2013. Yes, it took me that long to decide. That means, my research was extensive. I first stumbled upon Dr. Motiwala’s on the internet and was immediately impressed with the reviews. Most of the techniques I’ve seen from the US, Costa Rica and Thailand, were different from his. I was convinced from day 1 that Dr. Motiwala is the right person, but the timing was not on my side, as work and family life was in the way.
However, in August, something inside me was telling me, it cannot wait any longer. I should care for my teeth, I should not neglect them any longer since I have neglected them all my life. I finally decided to come to beautiful India and reached out to Tasneem, his International Coordinator, who was very helpful in every step of the way. She has become a familiar figure in my life for 5 years. She had been very patient and concerned about me, like a friend.
As soon as I arrived and upon meeting Dr. Motiwala and Tasneem, it is everything that I expected. They have calm demeanours and empathy was the first characteristics you’ll see in them.
My first day consultation was very enlightening. Apart from what you can read on their website, Dr. Motiwala educated me about the procedure and what it would entail. From the CT scan, which was done with state of the art machines that they have in the clinic, it was obvious that I had a lot of bone loss. The technique that I required was the Basal and Pterygoid implants. The implant is in one piece and attached at 2 points instead of just 1. It was clearly explained to me, in very simple words that I, as an ordinary non-technical person, could understand. Moreover, to my great delight, he informed me that I would not be needing a bone graft, unlike what I’ve been advised to me in the US. The Pterygoid implant technique gave me the assurance that technically, my smile is engineered - to last a lifetime.
I needed full mouth restoration, and because of being in the know, because He explained it to me, I was not intimidated or scared.
In the US, I always see implants that have 2 or 3 segments, that allows for a higher rate of implant failure. This knowledge gave me tremendous confidence that I will not have any problems in the future. On that first consultation day, you can see that Dr.Motiwala has done this for years and this expertise was already innate in him. He has developed this technique years ago, and I believe he has mastered and perfected this craft. The US needs to catch up to his, at least, already 15 years of advanced technology.
Long story short, the surgery was a success. Other than for some minor discomfort, it is unbelievable that a full mouth restoration was done in only 3 to 4 hours, maybe less. Imagine, 12 implants on the upper jaw. For the lower jaw, where I had so much bone loss, a couple of extractions, 8 implants were placed. It was quick and painless.
At this point, my anticipation has increased, I was so excited to have my crowns in. Did I mention that this is to be done the following day, and not 6 months later, just as I was told in the US?
It is also worth mentioning that the crowns are done by a technician with impeccable standards. Dr. Motiwala’s guidance will not get you lost, his attention to detail is down to the last millimetre. Making sure that the crowns are as natural looking as possible. He will adjust the fit until it is perfect. His personal concern is what’s special that is rarely seen with US dentists. My experience is one of the best human kindness, I’ve ever received from anyone. From Dr Motiwala, Tasneem, the dental assistants, the staff every single one of them.
I highly recommend Dr Motiwala to anyone who is still going through doubts making a tough decision. Take it from me, it took me 5 years, but it is the best decision I have made in my life. I now have a beautiful smile that I will carry with me forever.
