We are pleased to inform that in 2011 the Centre of Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry PANACEUM started to cooperate with the National Health Fund in the field of dental treatment under general anaesthesia.
Welcome to the website of Panaceum Centre of Implantology and Cosmetic Dentistry.
The surgery was established in 1997. Over the years, the place has changed. Partly like the treasure hunters, partly in the dark, we were looking for the facility with special value where one can perform almost any dental treatment, from comprehensive diagnostics to difficult implantations and bone reconstructions. We searched for the building where there would be space for treatment under anaesthesia and where children would feel good. And then I came across the palace at Pużaka Street, which turned out to be an ideal place for Panaceum.
The staff has expanded in the course of time. Today there are fifteen of us. Our temperaments and interests differ, however we share the passion with which we devote ourselves to dentistry. The desire for continuous improvement, learning and experiencing is something that unites us. And still the same questions being asked: how to bring the lost smile back? How to create a forgotten glow?
What key one has to use to find harmony that fits in with the person who confides his smile to us? Should we rely on the Greek Canon − a statue carved by Polyclitus in the 4th century BC − because this stone man embodies all the rules of the right proportions? Or maybe to read Plato again? This philosopher at the turn of the 5th and 4th centuries BC warned against creating “illusive appearances”, “illusive images” instead of similarities.
What is a measure of beauty and where to find its essence? Does the ideal, a scheme from which you can draw, exist? If one has to believe a German mystic from the fourteenth century Henry Suso, then there is nothing pleasant except for something that remains in harmony with the deepest recesses of our divine nature. If so, one should get to know this nature before undertaking the treatment. We try to listen, to see, to understand a patient. Learn his expectations and doubts, distinguish between embarrassment and fear, and sometimes the vicissitudes of life. Get closer, find some affinity, consistency − as Andrzej Szczeklik wrote about them. Only then we have a chance to learn what the patient really wants. Does he want to regain the appearance that he remembered many years ago, a countenance from an old photography? Does he dream about shiny, snow-white teeth or does he expect the treatment to become a slavish imitation?
I believe the joy with which we devote ourselves to dentistry is reflected in our patients’ smiles.
I warmly welcome you to Panaceum.
