Best Dental Clinics in Bangkok (Endodontists and Crowns)


Recommended Posts

What doctor or doctors have been handling your procedures there?

Apart from Dr Sunil himself who has personally overseen each treatment plan I've undertaken both at its start and at its finish, the individual dentist who's treated me has changed every time, So no real personal rapport has built up. I think they allocate their dentists partly according to their specialisation and partly according to who's available at the time. Lots of their patients are on short term dental holidays from overseas and have their return flights all pre-booked so their appointments are largely geared towards getting their jobs finished before the patient goes back home. I daresay Dr Sunil uses lesser experienced dentists for more common treatments like fillings and tooth whitening. Crowns and bridges are somewhere in between, but I have to say the Thai dentist who did my surgical extractions and implant was absolutely superb; in all my "3-score-&-10" years of using dentists all around the world I've never had a dentist to match this one in terms of either skilled surgical experience or of patient interaction and comfort.

Yes, there's an element of luck in who you get to treat you, which I suppose is true with all big dental clinics. I'm currently on my 3rd treatment plan since starting with Dr Sunil in mid-October, and my session yesterday (preparation for a couple of crowns and bridge in an awkward part of my mouth) was definitely an uncomfortable experience, having to keep my jaws wedged open on the operating couch for over 3 hours. Phew! Was I glad when that was over! Difficult to say whether that was because it was an awkward job, or whether it would have been more comfortable with a different dentist.

That's quite a recommendation. Who was it?

Dr Sunil told me afterwards that he wasn't a regular dentist at the clinic. He was apparently the top Thai dentist and was a visitor doing some sort of a deal with Dr Sunil at the time. I vaguely remember there was some sort of connection between him and some training going on in New York. I was just lucky to get him as a once off. Very impressive, but of course I didn't realise how good he'd been till I got back to my Guest House, my injection had worn off, found I had no pain at all, and the wound and stitches he'd done were hardly detectable by my tongue. Although he did introduce himself as Dr Something, I'm afraid I didn't register his name as I haven't with any of the other dentists at Dr Sunil's. In any case it would be a hard job getting him to do any further work for me since he was only visiting. Sorry, can't give any name.

Looking at this thread for help in my current need of getting a root canal and crown. Never had one before, and will need to fly to Bangkok to get treatment, so my question is - how many visits how far apart are involved. I live on Koh Samui, so may well get the crown part done here and only the root canal there. I have been told by one place two visits for the root canal and two visits for the crown. Crown I know from research is usually two visits but can be one visit if they have a special machine to make the crown on the spot. Two visits for root canal I am not at all sure of, The one endodontist on Koh Samui is gone until the 12th of November and I broke the tooth on Oct 31 so not keen on waiting to get this done, but don't have any pain or apparent infection (started a prophylactic course of antibiotics anyway),

 

Sheryl, would love a comment!

To the Op..I think cm would be the best alternative...root canal is two treatments, sometimes three..a few weeks apart.  CMU dental school is great and they have a 24 hour clinic for emergencies..I would go there any day of teweek over ram dental...visit is 100 THB..but unless it  is  critical, you will be referred to a private practice...the high rent areas are more expensive.  Crown root canal is just under 20k, otherwise.  VIP GRENBUS TO CR IS under 300 THB and best bus in los.  Better than flying to bkk.

Just had a root canal done in USA.    Harvard/UCLA grad, so you'd think highly competent.   $1975.......so 60,000+ baht.    He told me he does 1000 of this procedure a year.  Thankfully dental insurance covered 75%, but still way more spendy than people are saying about Thailand costs.  Does not include the crown.

For what it's worth I would like to share my recent experience as it might be useful to others who look up this thread.

 

Yesterday, a piece of one of my molar teeth (lower jaw) broke off. It wasn't a small piece but luckily no pain.

Went to Asavanant Clinic this morning, arrived at 08.30 and was friendly welcomed at reception and checked in.

Shortly after 09.00 (official opening time is 09.00) a doctor checked my teeth. I just realized lazer that this was Dr. Asavanant himself. Had to do X-Rays and before the X-Rays I was informed about the price without having to request it. At about 09.45 I treated Dr. Somsri Sudsangiam. She had to remove an existing filling and decay below the filling which was the actual reason for my tooth breaking off. At 11.00 I walked out of the clinic with a perfectly restored tooth. At each point I was treated professionally and informed without having to request information.

 

On top Dr. Asavanant identified an infected area of one of my other teeth which had received root canal treatment at a clinic in Central Europe. Apparently, the doctor there was not working diligently enough which sets me up for another root canal treatment. I have scheduled same at Asavanant Clinic as I am very happy with todays tooth restauration.

 

It's not the cheapest place: full set of X-Rays THB1,450, Filling THB3,600, Service THB200. To be honest, I didn't mind spend this money as I am happy with the outcome.

Root canal treatment is quoted at THB14,000 and will probably end up costing a couple of thousand baht more in case of further X-Ray needed.

Am writing this as other people might end up in a similar situation: root canal treatment in Bangkok.

 

So I had mine scheduled on Saturday at 0900am with Dr. Jaruma Sakdee Vegas at Asavanant Clinic. Procedure started 09.15 and I was done, including payment and documents for insurance at 11.00am.

 

The whole treatment went very well with Dr. Jaruma and all the staff showing high level of professionalism and compassion. I didn't feel as much as a twinch and continued to feel nothing as of today (48hrs later), despite a warning from the Dr. that I might feel pain after the initial anesthesia wears of as she had to do "a lot of work" (in her own words).

 

I am very happy with how the whole treatment worked out, it cost THB7,200.

Was that the clinic at Market Place Thonglor?

 

What is the parking situation like?

Yes, that's the one.

Two storey underground parking, accessable via Soi 4.

It's probably 15 lots per storey, so it's not massive and last time arriving on Saturday at about 08.45hrs I found it to be down to only two free spots.

The registration you receive from the parking guard will be redeemble at Asavanant.

You will find a price list placed at the reception desk. Root canal was quoted at THB14,000. In my case the Dr. treated an excisting root canal issue so that was a shorter and cheaper operation.

It would be a pretty good hoof from the BTS, yes?

Arrived by car both times. It's a 10 minutes walk I guess, as the station is right down the intersection. There is the whole breath of Thong Lo to be crossed though. It is a marked crossing at said intersection.

Thanks for the timely review. It so happens I'm looking for a dental clinic, and I live within walking distance of this one.
