I has 3 dental implants and one extract. done by dr eck. 2 wks after surgery I devel. an infect. w the tooth he extracted and put Bovin (Cow bone) mat'l in socket, this mat'l is used by many oral surg. but is not good as many peoples body rejects it. The main prob. w/Eckstein, was that after going back 4 x w/infected gum, he insisted I simply had an ulcer, well I'm no dr but knew this was ABSOLUTELY not true, these were real infections that were very painful. I then went to another Oral surg., Dr Kluklok, who explained what was going on. I wound up having to have 3 surgeries done to remove this material, have suffered over 40 infections over 4 yrs, and had to endure unbelievable pain, 1 infect. was so bad I wound up at Moores cancer Ctr. as they thought I may have cancer, which I did not, just repeat infections due to this sub standard material used. DO NOT USE HIS PRACTICE, GO TO DR KUKLOK, he is an EXCELLENT ORAL SURGEON and does not use this material due to The high rejection rate.
Paid (or co-pay): $15000
Dr Eckstein is the best oral surgeon. He is knowledgeable and very good. He removed my daughters third molars and she had no pain what so ever and she didnt even need a single one of her pain medication. She had no swelling or problems and no pain. Dr Eckstein even called her the next day to see how she was doing. He also did a minor surgery on my 5 year old and he did an excellent job on him too. Dr. Eckstein is the best! If you need an oral surgeon, Dr. Eckstein is the doctor for you.
An excellent oral surgeon-----the best. Not only is he a dental oral surgeon he is also an M.D.. He performed a difficult surgery within a hospital setting on my child----with excellent results. I highly recommend Dr. Eckstein for any oral surgery---you cannot find any better!
