At the beginning of the day the floors are thoroughly scrubbed with scented Phenol which leaves the place clean and smelling fresh. All carpeted/ non carpeted areas are meticulously cleaned with a high power vacuum cleaner to get all the dust mites out and prevent air borne infections if any. The chairs and all moving/ rotating parts are sprayed with antiseptic solution and wiped clean with a soft cloth. After every patient the same procedure is followed for the chairs to prevent cross infection. At the end on the day mosquito repellent are sprayed in the clinic premises.
All instruments thoroughly washed in antiseptics solutions are wiped clean. They are the packaged into sterile pouches and vacuum sealed to prevent contamination. The instruments are then placed into digital B-class autoclave and autoclaved. At this temperature all known disease causing bacteria are known to be killed. This is the standard autoclaved procedure followed in Operation Theatres worldwide.
We use fresh, new pair of gloves for every patient that are disposed off immediately after the treatment is completed. All gloves are torn as well so there is no question of whether any of them were ever used before. This is all done in front of every patient. In addition we use disposable masks, suction tips and plastic glasses. All local anaesthetic is given from sealed syringes that are opened in front of you and disposed of immediately after treatment. We also use filtered water for rinsing your mouth during procedures. Also protective eyewear is worn by all during LASER treatment.

Yes, Implants are remarkably strong so you can eat and enjoy whatever you like.

Relax, in most cases these procedures have very little, if any, discomfort. In fact many patients do not use any painkiller. The success rate of dental Implants is highly predictable. Leading dental organisations consider dental Implants the "standard of care" for the replacement of missing teeth. As a patient, it is imperative that your dentist uses a clinically proven implant system. (Dr Manika uses the Implants system from Straumann, Nobel Biocare, which has a long-term documented success rate.)
