Teeth In A Day

Patient Review

I was one of those people that was terrified of dentists where even talking about them would make me break out in a sweat. I had neglected my teeth to the point where I lost quite a few and even then could not make myself do anything about it. It was only when I finally lost one of my front two teeth to decay that I finally resolved to do something, it still took several attempts to actually search for and research the options available to me.

I could feel my pulse rate going up even writing my original enquiry on the C.A.R.E. Dental website but I then received a call in short order from Dr Amit Kotecha who managed to put me at my ease almost immediately. There was no judgement even though I had badly neglected my teeth and nothing but understanding.

My first visit to the surgery was nerve-wracking but within moments of walking through the door, I had been warmly greeted by all the staff and then quickly seen by Dr Kotecha before I had time to panic and change my mind. After an initial consultation, again without judgement and with a way forward, it became much easier and I was much more relaxed about my visits.

All the way through, I was given options regarding what could be done, the costs and expected outcomes. Each option was thoroughly explained with no hard sell, just simply explained where I could reduce the cost and what the risks / benefits would be. I opted for 6 implants in each jaw with conscious sedation during the work.

On the day of the surgery, I received the sedation which worked a treat, I felt no pain and barely remember any of it. Dr Kotecha and his team seemed to have worked miracles, I’ve had very little pain afterwards, nothing normal over the counter painkillers couldn’t handle for a day or two. I had the surgery on Tuesday and I’m writing this on Friday having not required any painkillers today. Considering the amount of work done, I feel this is like magic and a real credit to Dr Kotecha and his team, the preparation work and method used is incredibly impressive.

The temporary teeth I currently have still feel strange in my mouth, a bit like wearing a gumshield but they are larger than the final set and I’m getting used to them quickly. Dr Kotecha has been available for questions at any time and this has really been appreciated.

In summary, don’t do what I did and keep putting it off. I have no hesitation in recommending C.A.R.E. Dental and Dr Kotecha (and team), they are professional, caring and incredibly friendly. You won’t regret it!
