My Dentist here does everything, BUT dental implants. She says thats an open wound that will not heal.

 

I did read in the local paper that a french dentist was in cebu teaching a new MINI Implant technique. I do not know how good it is

Really? Well I guess the consensus about sums it up; for PI at least.

 

An open wound will not heal? So root canals are out too? That involves opening up the same area basically.

 

If PI dentists aren't comfortable with it, then I guess we won't try and get it done.

 

 

My wife has a tooth missing in front of a upper back wisdom tooth. I guess that'd be an implant.

 

A crown requires something left to put the crown on - right?

 

 

Implants are kind of a routine thing in the US, but pricey, and not covered by insurance.

Well Patric, she has a tooth on each side of the missing tooth. Maybe she could just have done what you did then.

 

Where's the Fernando Dental Clinic?

That's the same theoritical grounds as to gastrosnomy feed children.These are children who can't swallow neither drink water,as very weak swallowing reflex.In order for them to survive ,a lil hole is made through the abdominal area just lil above the navel going through abdominal wall then through the stomach.They are feed only with nutrient rich supplements.And these children thrive and growing healthy.They aren't in hospitals,infact parent can manage these childen of their own,feeding them through the tube either by bulos feed or gastrosnomy machine .They will never have any chance of life had this particular procedure not been done . Obviously, this is a surgical incession made and will remain open for as long as the child /person lives .Some are now in their adult life.

 

So what the heck about this dentist.She needs to do more training ,guess to update herself of new medical possibilities in her trade. She must be practicing like the time in the 60's.

 

If any of ya wanting implants rather have it back home ( US,Aus,canada,UK etc) ur more safe and more dental experts in the field.

I had an implant 2 years ago, painless procedure and trouble free since then. But it needs to be done carefully by a properly trained dentist and the whole procedure should take several months. First you need good x-rays to check there is enough bone to take the mounting for the implant. Then the procedure starts with an incision in the gum and they drill into the jaw bone and put in the mounting for the new tooth. This has to settle down and if I remember right I went back about 6-8 weeks later. If all is ok they then take casts to make the new tooth, match the tooth colour, and make a false tooth. A week or two later I went back for the dentist to try the new tooth. If it's ok then they glue it on to the mounting. I've been going back for a check-up every six months. I was lucky and had mine done by an implant specialist at the dental hospital here in Hong Kong. Don't know about the Philippines but many dentists in Thailand advertise implants but I would be a bit concerned about their procedures which seem pretty rushed from what I have heard. Implants are not for everyone and the bone and tissue loss that often goes with age and/or gum disease means that it may not be feasible as the mounting needs a solid foundation in the jaw. Hope this info is useful.

Well, we didn't have enough time left on our trip to go to the two dentists recommended here earlier. But as we were passing by another dentist's office anyway-we stopped in, and he not only could do a removeable denture in 1 day, he was P3500 cheaper than the two clinics suggested to me here!

 

Those two clinics wanted P5000 for the removable denture. This doctor-Cera I think his name is, did it all for P1500, and even took a mold of my wife's mouth in that area after business hours to boot.

 

He's just off Fuente Circle. Last business on the left down the tunnel next to Shakey's that leads back to Fuente Pension.

just a question though..

what is a crown and a bridge teeth? O.o?

 

A crown is a cap that goes over a bad tooth and resembles a good tooth dental-crowns.jpg

 

And a bridge is a cap over two teeth that are next to a missing tooth, with a fake tooth to fill in where the missing tooth is.dental_bridgeb4.jpg
