Bangkok Dentist Rant

Recommended Posts

It's for reasons like this that I have told my wife that categorically under no circumstances, no matter what happens to me should she allow anyone in Thailand to operate on me, no matter how minor, even if it saves my life.

Something like this happened to me in Germany at a dentist called very good. Thailand has very good dentists and they do their job for next to nothing. But of course there are bad ones too. I have experienced both here. If you are in Pattaya I can send you a private message with the name of one that never disappointed me in very many years - at least until now... There is never a 100 percent guarantee.

surprisingly this sort of thing happens all over the world, if you are having an operation on, for example, one leg the surgical team, as part of pre-op, will clearly identify the leg with marker pen

not next to nothing. in se asia thai dental care is rather expensive.  unless true emergency i get all dental work done in da nang vietnam, the money saved easily pays the plane fare plus i breathe clean air on a nice beach

Don't most root canals require a pin or some insert in order to help anchor the crown?  If you need a really really good dentist, fly your butt to Rancho Bernardo, which is north of San Diego, CA, and see Doctor Lozano.  Over the years I even schedule my visits there when out that way visiting on vacation.  It is well worth it.

that was an already crowned tooth that developed pulpitis. the root canal was done without removing the crown.

 

another tooth that broke below the gumline had a rct and a pin to help secure the crown. normally a tooth with adequate structural integrity just has a rct i dont think a pin is needed

So it seems that they x-rayed the wrong side, these things happen, maybe something

was lost in translation, did they charge you for the 2nd one?

I agree with that, the dentist I have used in Bangkok for many years is top notch the best if I have used. I have recommended him to several visiting friends and all speak very highly of him.

People often blame dentists for persistent pain. What patients do not appreciate is that the cause of the pain may  be in an adjacent tooth or due to grinding or something else. Yes, maybe an incorrect  xray may have been taken. However, some people do not give clear instructions or speak coherently, while others present with so many issues and remediations that it can be confusing to the  health practioner who does not ahve benefit of a complete history and previous  xrays.
