Well everything was a challenge for me when it comes to teeth perhaps its hereditary. I was wearing dentures for 4 years now and I have changed 2 sets of upper arch for some reason either gums would change shape or whatever, dentures would ill-fit after half a year. Decided to look for a permanent solution but the investment was eye watering both in US and even in Australia. Most of my peers back in Australia were flying abroad for dental work and off late India was a preferred destination.
I started my search right here at realself and found a review about Center for dental Implants & esthetics – I was skeptic initially looking at the young doctors team. I started my discussion, had skype sessions and phone calls with them. Shared my pictures, radiographs, finally when got the suggested treatment plan, I was convinced.
September 11th was my first visit to one of their center in Gurgaon, its part of capital city Delhi but more modern in every sense, I must say I was not expecting this, the city although crowded like every other place in India, has good infrastructure is much cleaner. I stayed close to the Center which is again near a big hospital and you have a lot of foreign patients in the area, the whole street has hospitals like the two women’s hospital I visited for general check arranged by Center for dental implants team.
My final radiographs were taken and explained about the procedure in-person by Dr Joe (as they call her – she is a young lady in early 30s perhaps), There I learnt why it is important to have right placement for implants – right alignment of teeth in terms of direction, bite and chewing efficiency. They used a computer aided surgical guide for implant placement for accuracy and precision. I chose Nobel Biocare although they have less costlier options also but I wanted the best and also doctor suggested that Nobel biocare results with people my age.
Once I was back in Houston, I kept in touch with Dr Joe. For the second visit on 15th Dec, I had my husband also with me, he wanted a prostrate check-up done at Artemis Hospital. Everything went on as planned. One radiograph to confirm implants had integrated with the bone, measurement was taken and we were ready for the new CERAMIC teeth. Dr Joe is prosthetics experts that actually helped in getting right set of crowns, almost like my natural teeth, I had been missing.
About the dental office – its the cleanest that I have ever seen, newly built, this is their second office in Gurgaon. They do take care of contamination and sterilization, I was impressed the moment I went inside the operation area.
Center gave us a free pick & drop from the airport to hotel. In my opinion since they are specialist implant center, they are a better option for implants. From ill-fitting dentures to implants has been a great journey. I was skeptic re surgery for implant but again it is not very painful, you remain on antibiotics for 5 days and pain killers for a couple of days but its bearable.
I was waiting to write this – just wanted to see the crowns how they come up, they are nice.

Rating Dr Joeti

She is knowledgeable especially with implants and implants placement. They measure and plan everything, I used to think it’s only with with folks here in US. Her treatment planning and surgical accuracy is something I would like to highlight, teeth look perfectly aligned and natural. Thank you Dr. Joe
