New patient booking fee/ New patient consultation/ pan oral radiograph/immediate denture/ sedation by injection/extraction of 9 teeth; 3 wisdom in poor condition,7 in sides where jawbone disintegrated
I am more than pleased, and thank you both very much. As I have got older I have become increasingly nervous of the dental surgery, even though my dentist is kind and gentle. I felt ridiculous, and refused to have certain procedures as I was afraid I was going to get up and run or otherwise disgrace myself. After the initial appointment, when everything was explained to me, and excellent explanatory leaflets given, I happily attended my appointment today to have 9 extractions and an immediate denture inserted. My favourite music was played, and after the sedation, which I hardly noticed, it seemed only a few minutes before Dr Biju Philip was saying 'that's it, all done'. I couldn't believe it. I don't remember a thing, amazing. Dr Shebin Koshy gave me the offending teeth in a little wallet, and I walked through to the waiting room, and settled the bill.
Money very well spent, I feel. I have booked in for a Hygenist appointment ( something I have avoided like the plague) as I feel confident that I can expect the same understanding, and that I have no need to be frightened of discomfort or pain, or ridicule for being nervous. I know it's stupid, and I can think of no reason for these fears, but no more worries any more. It is now 7 hours since I left the Olive Clinic. I have felt no pain, and I have used the further pain killing medication suggested at my assessment and which I took along with me today. I enjoyed my lunch of smooth warm soup and an exceedingly decadent chocolate pud! My family say I do not sound like 'me' at the moment. Never mind. I need to get used to my mouth of new dentures! I'm very pleased with the way they look, just as I remember my teeth when I was younger and before everything started to go downhill ! All in all, a good experience.
