The award recognizes the pioneering work in dental care that allows extractions, implants and fixing of teeth in one day
Cum laudE dentists Dr Costa, Cert. Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, and Dr Petros, Cert. Prosthodontics (TUFTS, U.S.A.), at the SameDay Dental Implants Clinic in Jumeirah have received a double shot of awards in Sweden and South Africa for their pioneering work on “SameDay Dental Implants and Teeth” based on immediate loading of dental implants.
At the Annual Branemark Osseointegration Center Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, Dr Costa and Dr Petros presented their unique and innovative method of treating patients with dental extractions, placement of implants and fixing teeth, all in the same day (as opposed to the traditional three- to six-month waiting period).
This highly successful evidence-based revolutionary treatment method was well received at this conference in Sweden where the inventor and father of dental implantology Prof. PI Branemark showed great interest in their work.
The success of the treatment protocol of SameDay Dental Implants and Teeth lies in avoiding painful, lengthy and costly bone grafts.
It is made possible by placing angled and wide implants, where necessary, into the available native bone of the jaws with good stability for immediate loading.
This allows room to treat patients efficiently with implants and fixed teeth all on the same day and with almost no pain or swelling. “Patients can return to their work and resume normal social responsibilities the next day,” says Dr Costa.
At the 25th Southern Implants conference in the Cape Province of South Africa in March, Dr Costa was awarded the “25th Anniversary Award” in recognition of his pioneering work on immediate loading of dental implants. Dr Costa had started this work in South Africa over 20 years ago.
Dr Costa and Dr Petros are treating UAE and foreign patients visiting Dubai with this method at SameDay Dental Implants Clinic (www.samedayme.com) in Jumeirah. This clinic is one of 13 certified Branemark Osseointegration Center in the world and the only one in the UAE.
“We believe dental/ medical tourism is on the rise in Dubai, and with this efficient and painless treatment approach, visiting patients can fly into Dubai, have dental extractions as well as placement of implants and fixed teeth, all in the same day. They can then continue with their vacation or fly off to their next destination,” says Dr Costa.
Due to its excellence in dental implant treatment SameDay Dental Implants Clinic has been awarded the status of Branemark Osseointegration Centre — Dubai, by Professor PI Branemark (the Swedish founder of dental implantology). There are 14 such clinics in the world. SameDay Dental Implants is the only one in the UAE and Middle East.read more
I had severe pain and went to them for removing my wisdom tooth. The Doctor Costa was chatting with me and then he told me that tooth has been removed. I have shared this experience with everyone I met as I did not feel or know of its removal. And to top it all no after pain or anything joined work next day without any swelling. Thanks to Sameday dental implants are the most professional dentists I have come across in Dubai.
Dr. Petros is one of the best dentist I've been to. Before I went for the consultation, I was skeptical but he made me understand the procedure and assured the right result. However, the results were better then I expected - I highly recommend this dental clinic. One of the best in Dubai.
My teeth required extractions and implants. I must say Sameday dental implants is easily the top dental clinics here in Dubai. I heard a lot about the pain while extractions but Dr. Costa made it look so simple and easy, I hardly felt anything. The implants were also placed the same day and I was good to travel back to UK the next day! My teeth are perfect now- easy to chew and enjoy them for rest of my life.
I have never come across such wonderful, happy, caring and professional team of dental practice in my whole life. Kudos to Dr Costa and his team who made my experience not only painless but a very pleasant one. Everyone is nice, friendly and extremely helpful. SameDay Dental Clinic is highly recommended. Will definitely tell my family and friends.
