“Life-Changing” smile makeover for our US patient

Table of Contents

Donna Read planned to travel with her daughters through Europe this summer. As she was already fascinated by the Romanian culture, she decided to do a 2 in 1 journey and have a smile makeover as well. She already saw 5 specialists in America, specifically from New York and Dallas and everyone recommended an All-on-4. This kind of procedure could vary in America from $25,000 only for the treatment, reaching up to $50,000 for quality implants.

How Mediwhere was the best option for Donna's smile makeover

Taking all this into consideration, Donna started then to look after more cost-effective options throughout Europe. But why Mediwhere was the best option for her? She discussed with few other clinics in Europe before, but the main reason she stayed with Mediwhere is that her Health Manager, Dragoș, was the only person who really listened to her. He understood her needs and especially her fears, helping Donna to choose the right treatment plan.

When I first met Donna at the airport, I was nervous. It was as if I was expecting an aunt I hadn't seen in a long time. I knew her after the repeated endless phone calls, but it was a real impact to see her face to face. I got attached to her and her sister. They were friendly, open, and we started joking from the beginning. ​

He understood her needs and especially her fears, helping Donna to choose the right treatment plan.

An entire team mobilized to create the best treatment plan​

After her arrival, an entire team mobilized to create the best treatment plan. She was offered multiple therapeutic variants, understanding the risks, complications, but also benefits. Having very healthy and beautiful teeth, the doctor recommended all-on-four for the lower part of the mouth and two implants for the maxilla. This was in order to help the natural teeth preservation.

For the preparation of the surgery, Donna had to collect blood tests and perform a cardiological consultation. The surgery was performed under analgo anesthesia. Analgo sedation keeps the patient awake during the operation, but induce a state of well-being, relaxation and without feeling a thing.

Changes in the treatment plan are something usual. There is no such thing as a fixed treatment plan. We can orientate and give a personalized estimate treatment plan, but only after the clinical examination and after a CBCT. Only then we can have a treatment plan close to reality. However, the changes are not big.

All on 4 is not an immediate procedure, but a complex one

It’s important to understand that dentists Europe are more reserved when it comes to All-on-4 procedures. Mainly because, for them, natural teeth preservation is very important. Therefore, Donna’s dentist explained to her that it is not necessary to remove all her teeth since the front ones are healthy.

Even so, Donna wanted to remove all her teeth due to an older infection, being afraid that the infection could affect the new teeth. All on 4 is not an immediate procedure, but a complex one. Which, in the best case, the teeth can be attached on at least the next day.

For the first session, an impression was made so that the prosthesis could be made as quickly as possible. The hygiene of the teeth also took place in the first session together with the extraction of some unrecoverable root residues. During the next session was the actual operation – the teeth extraction and the placement of dental implants.

Donna Read got her smile back two days after the operation

The operation went very well, the patient came out laughing and joking with everyone, being partially sedated. Two days after — her teeth were brought and she was very satisfied with them, having the same shade as her natural teeth. She left happily the day after, enjoying a glass of cold beer for the last time together with her Health Manager, Dragoș.

A procedure that in America could cost over $ 25.000 was made in a luxury clinic in Romania at the price of $ 12.000, accommodation and transportation included.

One of the best ways to keep your mouth and teeth healthy is to take into consideration supplements, if you feel the diet alone is not enough for your body. If you need more information about nutrients, vitamins and minerals, don’t hesitate to ask a doctor.
