Total teeth replacement, crowns, implants and bridge at Sacred Heart Dental

Treatment: Crown - porcelain
Provider: Sacred Heart Dental Clinic
Date: Aug 2015

I am a 51 year old man currently working in the Oil and Gas industry in WA.
Since I was a small boy, I have had difficult times with my teeth—losing my front ones in an accident when I was 10 years old. I could never smile.
Waiting all those years has paid off, finding the right choice in dental implants is paramount. I did my research and I believe there is no better place than the Philippines at the Sacred Heart Dental Clinic in Manila, headed by Dr. Alexander Garcia. The dentist I found worked with me from the start and told me I could do what I never imagined. Total teeth replacement crowns implants and a bridge would solve the matter once and for all. The initial consultation only took a few hours and a day or so for them to make a treatment plan that meant I had more than enough time to relax in the great friendly environment provided by the clinic.
The first major treatment on day 2 was the preparation of the teeth for the crowns. I expected this to be very painful but found myself totally relaxed, almost asleep during the process. The dentists and assistants' skills in providing superior pain-free management during this process were astounding. Moulds were taken and at the end of the process temporary plastic teeth were provided to allow you to get used to the new look and make the changes look that you wanted. Straight away I felt a new confidence with even the temporaries.
2 days were required for the manufacturing of the crowns and implants to very high and exacting standards. When they were fitted it was like putting on a glove. On the final day, the crowns were fitted permanently to the ground teeth which can be a bit painful as you would expect, but again pain management is available.
The results speak for themselves. I have a new confidence in my life. I don't have to fear smiling, but I can actually smile. My speech has improved and I can again sing as I did as a young boy. I don't fear losing my dentures in public. The bridge provided is sound. The overall look is attractive and the chosen colour matches my face and complexion. Another friend who had the treatment at the same time with temporary denture and bone grafting for future implants also looked amazing—a woman in her fifties I believe it took ten years off her life and she also felt the new.
I cannot recommend the treatment highly enough. The professionalism and friendliness of the staff associated with the treatment was astounding. Realistically in just a few days, I have new teeth that I can use straight away without any on going pain or complications. Similar treatment plans in my own country could not even be offered. I believe the work done on my teeth to be in excess of 50 to 70 thousand dollars. At a fraction of this cost and with such quality dentistry and materials used, its the obvious choice for anyone needing immediate dental implant solutions working within your existing FIFO Roster, would choose Manila as a viable safe sound option to new teeth. And there's also plenty of time to relax and enjoy the shopping, food, entertainment Spas on offer within a stones throw from the surgery and provided accommodation in a relaxed comfortable hotel. This is also included in the price as are daily transfers to the clinic and airport arrivals and departures.
I so believe in the product Dr. Garcia provides. I am happy to talk to anyone with any questions personally about the treatment he provides. So if you're a resources sector worker and is looking for a solution to painful and troublesome teeth grinding or aesthetic changes, you would be foolish not to consider this fantastic option.
