Recently I treated a patient in my clinic for a dental emergency. She was visiting Athens and the islands, while on her way from United States to China. She seemed frightened upon arrival, but when I finished the treatment and suggested a long-overdue cleaning; she went for it with no hesitation. As she happily said upon completion, right from the moment she walked in the clinic and met our team, she felt comfortable.
Is there a chance that going to the dentist during your holidays can be comfortable?
I bet you would say no, since most dental treatments can be stressful and high in budget. You may also think that dental care in a foreign country may be less successful or the dentists would choose a short cut in your treatment.
However in Greece we treat a lot of patients who visit the country on holidays, not only for emergencies but for high-budget treatments as well.
Sometimes getting a new smile may seem impossible or very hard to get.
Many patients think that their treatment will very expensive or that it requires extensive reduction of healthy tooth structure. The truth is, that in many cases getting a new smile may be done easily in a few steps only.
What you need is a dentist that will address all your concerns, will think all the alternative treatment options and will suggest treatment plans that are fitted to your special needs and concerns.
Today I present a case that has been treated in our clinic in a short period of time, without orthodontics and extensive restorative work and with minimal cost.

The Wand is essentially a computer-controlled dental injection. The flow rate of the local anaesthetic is controlled by a computer. This means that the injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady and therefore comfortable.
Even though Milestone Scientific, now call their products CompuDent and STA (Single Tooth Anesthesia) System, we still call it the Wand, because a lot of people with needle phobia describe it as their Magic Wand!
