Re: Dental implants in Poland
Thank you for your swift response Thelma-Louise. I am not interested in having the work undertaken for cosmetic reasons.Anyway I believe that the dentist in Poland is saying that it is to promote 'sterility'.Please see the reply from an intermediary (a person arranging the treatment for me in Poland) when I raised the issue before.
Thanks for your email. I've just spoken do the dentist. He said that your old fillings and any cavities in your teeth must be healed before implant insertion. This is because, as any dental book says, the main condition for implants is sterile environment in your mouth i.e. healthy gums, bones and teeth. Without that, it is a medical mistake to put implants. As you realise it is a major dental operation, and also, there is 97% acceptance rate for implants. With bad teeth, this rate can be lowered drastically, and your implants are more likely to be rejected after some time. It would mean that you lost money and time you spend on them. Moreover, after successful implant insertion you still have to keep sterile condition in your mouth, how can you do this when 20 of your teeth are neither healthy or have old amalgam fillings? We give 10 years guarantee on implants, it means that we can assure you that our implants, if accepted and properly looked after by you, will be there for at least 10 years. Please ask your local dentist, if he could place implants, despite these 20 fillings and at the same time guarantee you financially that they will be there in 10 years time? Dr (Name removed), our implantologist, who holds PhD diploma in dental surgery, said that he would not take a risk to place implants, without providing you proper conditions in your mouth.
