In the middle of my holiday my wisdom tooth became infected and my face blew up like a football. I am, I admit, a nervous dental patient and I was worried about seeing a dentist who was not my usual dental doctor. I researched online and Doctor Vardakis seemed to be recommended and could see me promptly. His office is modern, air conditioned, classic jazz playing. The doctor was excellent, tooth whipped out with no pain, everything explained clearly, aftercare explained carefully and the price very reasonable, about half UK prices. I was so impressed I booked another appointment to fit a new crown. I recommend Dr Vardakis without hesitation, very pleased indeed. It is extremely reassuring that such a competent, professional dentist handled my case. Thank you very much doctor!
I started the Invisalign method. The so-called invisible orthodontics. Incredible experience and knowledge. I was very happy to continue my treatment. Friendly, economical, inspires confidence and in the smile. I highly recommend it for any orthodontic reason. Thank you Alexander.
I've been meaning to write this review for quite a while. It's now been over a year since I first went to Dr. Papadiotis office. Since day one, I was impressed with the cheerful office where appointments were easy to get and there was never any wait. The office is clean and technologically advanced. Dr. Papadiotis and the staff is more than patient and helpful. Everything is explained thoroughly and well. Dental work is never pleasant, but I felt at ease during my entire experience. Great service…but the most important thing…the actual dental work…was amazing. Whole mouth reconstruction with no pain or discomfort, perfect bite, perfect overall result. Probably, the best dentist I’ve ever had (and my last dentist was a good friend). Highly recommended.Panagiotis K.
Wegen starker Zahnschmerzen während unseres Urlaubs habe ich in der Klinik angerufen und schon an nächsten Tag einen Termin bekommen. Der Zahnarzt hat sich Zeit für die Diagnose genommen und die Wurzelbehandlung anschließend sehr gewissenhaft durchgeführt. Ich kann die Klinik nur weiterempfehlen.
I have visited him several times, sometimes for simple tasks (eg sealing) and sometimes for more complex topics. He is an excellent dentist, he explained to me exactly what is going on and how to treat it and the result has always been excellent. He is a trained scientist with great experience. If need be, I will definitely prefer it again!

Dental implant surgery is a procedure to replace damaged or missing teeth using artificial teeth that function and look much like real ones. The implant acts as a replacement for the root of a missing or damaged tooth, which in turn serves to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implant surgery is considered as a better alternative to dentures or bridgework that does not fit well. It also offers a great option for people when they do not have enough natural teeth roots left to build denture or bridgework replacements.
Since dental implants eventually fuse with your jawbone over the span of several months, it won’t make noise, slip, or cause bone damage the way dentures or bridgework might. Dental implants also enable natural speech, look and feel like your own teeth, make eating easier, and improves your appearance. However, the surgery may involve several stages, and, in some cases, it may require two separate visits to the clinic to complete.
Dental implant surgery generally requires several stages. Each stage may be performed under general or local anesthetic. The first stage is removing the damaged tooth. Then, if your jawbone is too soft or not thick enough, your dentist may perform bone grafting to create a more solid base for the implant. The bone graft may be natural (taken from another part of your body) or synthetic (a bone-substitute material). If you only need minor bone grafting, the implant surgery can be performed on the same day. However, if you need a significant amount of bone graft, the implant surgery may have to be postponed until the transplanted bone grows enough new bone to support the dental implant.
The next stage after the damaged tooth removal and bone graft (if you need one) is placing the dental implant. To do this, your dentist makes an incision to expose the bone and puts the metal implant post deep into the bone. At this stage, you will still have a gap where your tooth is missing. Your dentist will place a temporary denture for appearance. Once the metal implant post is placed, osseointegration begins. This is a process where the jawbone grows into the surface of the implant and can take several months to complete. After osseointegration complete, your dentist will place the abutment, which is a small connector post that will hold your new tooth. The final stage, after the abutment is placed, is placing the crown, which is the tooth-looking part. You can choose between a removable crown and a fixed crown.
Each stage of dental implant surgery is done in separate appointments. After each appointment, you should be able to leave the hospital or clinic right away. However, you should stay in Greece for at least 2 weeks for completion of the work and the initial recovery and follow-up checkups.
There is no specific recovery timeline for dental implant surgery as it depends on your unique condition. In general, you need to rest as much as possible for a couple of days following each appointment. When the whole procedure is finished and the permanent crown is placed, it may take several weeks to get used to the feel and shape of the implant.
After each stage of surgery, you may have to eat soft foods. Since you may experience swelling, bruising, pain, and minor bleeding, your dentist will prescribe pain medications or antibiotics to help ease your discomfort. During your recovery period, you need to avoid smoking as it can contribute to implant failure and complications.
No special care is required for dental implants. Nonetheless, you need to practice good oral hygiene in order to maintain the implant and your remaining natural teeth. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day, floss daily, and rinse your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash. You also need to see your dentist regularly and avoid damaging habits, such as chewing hard items.
Most dental implants are successful. The success rate of dental implant surgery is as high as 95%. However, you do need to follow your dentist’s instructions and care for your oral hygiene properly to maintain positive results.
It is also important to note that risks of complications and side effects are possible, which may include implant failure, nerve injury, infection, sinus problems, as well as damage to surrounding structures, such as other teeth or blood vessels.
If you are not a candidate for dental implant surgery, or you simply do not want to undergo the procedure, you can opt for the alternatives. The alternatives include:
