If you are embarrassed about having no teeth, we are here to help!
Mrs. Mackie told us that she has so many teeth missing that she felt like she has no teeth in the mouth at all. She wanted to replace all of her remaining teeth with dental implants and dental crowns. As this treatment is very costly in the UK she sent us an e-mail in early March this year to get more information about Dental Holiday – dentistry abroad.
Several e-mails later Mackie booked her flight to us. She came to our dental clinic on 18th June to have a consultation with our head implantologist Dr. Mark. He made her a treatment plan containing of 13 extractions (all her remaining teeth), 12 dental implants and 28 dental crowns. The consultation and all necessary Xrays and CT scans are always free of charge for patients from the UK.

If the patient agrees to the treatment plan we usually can start with the treatment on the same day as we did the consultation. Dr Mark decided to start with Mackie´s upper jaw. He pulled all 9 teeth out and immediately put 6 dental implants into her jaw. After successful dental surgery our dentist Michaela took care of Mackie and made her provisional dental crowns so Mackie was able to speak and eat without bigger problems.
We continued with the treatment two days later. Dr. Mark pulled 4 remaining teeth from her lower jaw and put 6 dental implants into the patient´s jaw. Dr. Michaela made temporary dental crowns for Mackie´s lower jaw also. These provisionals (temporary dentures) are provided to all patients and they are free of charge. You can see the patient´s smile with temporary crowns on this picture:
The dental implants need to heal for 3-4 months so Mackie went back to the UK. She didn´t have any major problems with her implants and healing went smoothly. She booked her second flight to us for September 2018. Dr. Michaela took the impressions of both her jaws so our dental technicians will be able to prepare Mackie´s final dental crowns in colour and shape as Mackie wanted.
For the final visit Mackie´s grown-up daughter Anna came with her to support her mother and to have a vacation in Slovakia. On the last appoitment, we need to see the patient only for a few hours so mother and daughter had chance to spend nice days together in lovely spa city Piešťany, where is our dental clinic located.
Now Mackie has 6 dental implants supporting fixed 14-point bridge in both her jaws. All 28 crowns are in colour B1. When she was leaving the dental clinic Mackie left us 10 points! Here is her testimonial:
