Still Looking For Experienced And Skillful Dentist With Top Of The Line Facility And Equipment

I am having lots of pain in my teeth.  It seems like several teeth in  row are affected.  It makes it difficult to chew  and It is very distracting.  I am definitely against removing my teeth or replacing them with false teeth.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks ahead.

Few competent dentists will agree to remove a tooth these days. They will either repair ( filling or crown) or do a root canal if no other choice.  

Start off by going to a dental xray place and getting a panoramic full mouth xrays. It should cost about 800 pesos. Take them with you when you consult with a dentist(s)

Dr Sidney Ricamora in the Robinson's Cybergate building on Fuente is fully equipped with all the latest stuff and has a great following.  We have always used him.

Does he do root canals?

We use Green Apple Dentists at Ayala Center. They have several excellent dentists with all of the specialties covered. They also have their own panoramic x-ray machine, which is rare to find in a dentist office. They have done a lot of work for my family, from exams and cleaning to fillings to wisdom tooth extractions and braces for my wife. They are a bit more expensive than most dentists here, but their level of work is as good as it gets. There are a lot of dentists here who don't deserve the title.

Yep his office handles everything dental.  He has been established for many years up in Fuente.  We have known him for a long time and he lives one street over from our home in Happy Valley.  Just tell him Fred the kano watch buyer and Janice sent ya and he will take good care of ya.

Thanks for the suggestions, jtmwatchbiz.  When travel restrictions are lifted I will go to Cebu and make an appointment.

My daughter had hers done at a place across ChungHua Med Arts in the Cherish Chinese School Building.   State of  the art Visuals ...  gives the dentist a huge advantage.

Can you be more specific as to state of art visuals?  And how they apply to a root canal?

I think he is referring to the place near Chong Hua MAC that specializes in dental x-rays. Most of the dentists in Cebu send their patients there, if they need x-rays to do a job. Like I said, very few dentists here have x-ray machines in their offices. Only competent dentists would have good x-rays (panoramic) available in their offices, so you might want to ask about x-rays when setting up an appointment with any dentist. A dentist working without x-rays is like a surgeon working with a blindfold.

The place is or least was in the building  cherish chinese school.   the exterior and office seem real dumpy but they give high quality visuals very quickly.   Its like full color Magnetic Imaging..not old Xray film .   Go there first and then show it to your dentist.   The equipment is very expensive so most independent dentist couldnt afford to have one on site and will refer you to get one.   Its much more detailed and and accurate as compared to the old school XRays.    Good luck.   Sorry i dont know the name of the place or if it is even still there,.

I just want to second Headshot's post. My family and I have had numerous cleanings and procedures done there over the years with no problems. They have the latest technology and, as mentioned, the panoramic x-ray really provides a comprehensive overview of all teeth in one shot.

I very much appreciate the references here.  When I get to Cebu, I will check them out.  The panoramic imaging is new to me, so it will be good to start out with that.

The reason I am looking for a specialist in root canals is because I have several teeth that need attention and I cannot risk a bad outcome.

Last time we had a discussion on root canals, the examples given were strange to me, in that in each case the tooth was filed down and given a cap, which is not what I want.  I want the entire tooth to be saved, not capped after the procedure.  I had a root canal done 20 years ago in the US, and the dentist specialized in that.  It took him about 2 hours with no damage to the tooth after removing the root.  If I remember correctly, he used an xray device while drilling out the canal, so he could precisely follow the root.  That was 20 years ago, so hopefully some dentists here follow that procedure and have the appropriate equipment.

Go to Green Apple Dentists. Ask them if they have a root canal specialist. They have several specialists, so I would guess they do. You can also get your panoramic x-ray done there, so you don't need to go anywhere else.

They have to close the hole someway. They used to just fill it, but since the tooth is now basically dead, it becomes brittle and subject to fracturing or breaking. The cap prevents this from happening. I think It might also depend on where the tooth is located too. When chewing, certain teeth have a lot more pressure exerted on them than others...

Not to dispute what you are saying, but this is a bit confusing. If it is the case that the tooth becomes brittle, then most definitely it would not provide a good base for a cap, since most of it would be ground away in order to make the stud over which to glue the cap.

It's best that you have the dentist explain it to you.

You can probably find all your questions about varies procedures and options on the internet as well...
