I have now completed two lots of dental implant treatment, over a period of 18 months or so, at Oradi Dental practice in Wellingborough. Along the way, I’ve also had an extraction, a root canal treatment and a replacement crown (none of these related to or caused by the implant treatment). This testimonial is therefore based on my experiences of a range of treatments and contact with a number of the dentists, dental nurses and reception staff.
My first treatment was for 3 implants: 2 to replace teeth that had been missing for more than 10 years and 1 to extract and replace a tooth that had been root-canalled and crowned and had finally given up the ghost. The treatment process was well-explained to me by Resh Diu (and helpfully repeated at every stage) and the outcome has been fantastic. My re-found ability to chew comfortably and efficiently, on teeth designed for that very purpose, is something I really appreciate after spending a couple of years chomping my way though meals using my front teeth.
I subsequently developed a problem with a front tooth and when all other treatment failed returned to Resh for expert and trustworthy advice. The choices were permanent toothache, extraction and gap or extraction and implant. I chose the latter option.
The implant process for an upper tooth at the front involved wearing a partial denture for 6 months (or having a gap!) and this, for me, has been the most irritating and difficult element of the treatment. I should probably add that the denture caused me no pain or discomfort, did not restrict my ability to eat, and looked just like a real tooth. I loathed it nonetheless!
I have found all the staff at Oradi to be helpful, courteous and friendly. I have never known reception staff to ask for payment so nicely (seriously, I have felt privileged to be invited to put my card in their machine!) Resh has been my primary dentist and I have every confidence in his abilities as an implant dentist: he has genuinely understood my treatment objectives and worked to achieve those, has offered sound advice throughout, made no false promises and done exactly what has been agreed. I have also been seen by and received treatment from Dr Hodge and Dr Vohra and have found them equally caring, knowledgeable and skilful.
Throughout my treatments I have maintained regular contact with my usual dentist, and, where appropriate and with my permission, there has been contact between them to ensure that their input to my overall dental well-being is complementary.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Resh and the Oradi Practice to anyone in need of general dentistry or the specialist services that are provided there.
