747man, have no idea what you are talking about.
Admin, Good question..you sound like you have been through this proceedure before or known someone. OK, here goes, this proceedure is called doing an "immediate" denture or some call it "an embarrassment denture. (one my my specialties)
Yes you need impressions of the top and bottom of the mouth (maxillary and mandibuile) , you need perfect impressions. Then a wax bite, so the models can be articulated to hold the placement of the teeth. As with Mom, I made all the notes needed to correct everything that needed to be corrected. Got the shade, made them whiter but not too white (you go by the color of the eye, never more white). Explained to her she was going to have a hollywood smile and look 15 years younger. Put her on the plane home. One by one, you remove a tooth from the model and replace it with a denture tooth, closing in all the gaps and spaces, bring in all the teeth that were flared out. I scrape the model as I go to represent the immediate bone loss that will follow the teeth removal. Finish set-up, wax-up, prepare for investment, process with desired shade of acrylic. Cut the posterior teeth off the lower model, scrape the bone area down, design the partial framework I want. Send to my friend who does the castings. Partial returns, remount to the Full upper denture with a new bite made before removing the lower. Set up the lower teeth against the new upper, wax, process & finish, F/ and /P. Package and ship. Perfect. Can you imagine messing up your Moms smile? Yes, no try-in. There is nothing to try in, most teeth are remaining.There is much more technical stuff involved, Your probably in brain over load by now.
I was licensed by the State of Florida Dental Association for 20 years. Dental Technician. We make the appliances that make the Dr look good, if he gives us what we need.
You who are thinking about implants, the cheapest place may be the worst. He gives a cheaper price because he gets cheaper on everything he uses. I don't know any good dentists to recommend, but I can tell you one bit of advice. Find out kind of metal implant & screws he is going to use. It should be a combination of Titanium / Palladium, no nickel or bervrilium. Find out if you are alergic to any certain metals. Once its screwed in, you are screwed with your jaw swelling up like a baseball from the infection of the bad metal or dirty metals out there. Yes, we called them rear bumper metal, alot of this junk came from China. There you go, bye

Has anyone done any serious research on Flossing ?

The dental associations agree . Very little and study groups of 50 etc arent a good base line.

I read recently its one of the biggest medical scams of the last 40 yrs.

WOW, here you guys go again! Wassa, What's Sup? Because you have many posts, do you know many will follow this false info you are signing your name to, because you said it? Thats a disservice to your fellow man. Please research everything before you sign your "Hancock" to it. I don't blame you because you are only saying what you read, which is propaganda from this industry. Every industry is full of propaganda. This is how they build their profits.
Here is a video I will co-sign with- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mCAQ4rzfbHQ
Two problems here though, If you use a Water-Pic or Sonic Care, don't leave these instuments on your teeth too long, don't sit watching TV and enjoy the soft massage you feel, you are actually vibrating your teeth and actually loosening it from the gums. What is vibration? Mix some cement, let it sit a couple minutes, it will get thick and firm, apply a vibration, it turns into a soupy form. My Thai friend in the US victimized himself by this, he had to have 3 teeth removed, I made him a Partial. (Free) Another thing, if you can floss once a week or even once a month, its better than every day. Constant flossing will push the gums down exposing the root of the tooth if you always apply too much pressure.
If you floss regularly you can eliminate most problems. This is why the Dental Association don't want to do it.
Cavities result from not brushing regularly, going to bed with sugars, ect. in your teeth will create a "rotting" of the enamel, a cavity. If you see a "black spot" forming, a baby cavity, you can eliminate it with dailey brushing.
Lets talk about tooth removal. Why do Doc's insist you remove your "wisdon teeth" at a young age? 1: they are easier to remove before the mature roots grow longer. 2: Most people do not brush thoroughly the 3rd molars, resulting in abcesses/ infections. Myself, had 2 -3rd infected molars removed at a later age by a Dental Surgeon/ friend. No charge to me. Removing a molar at a late age? The roots can be wrapped around your jaw (lower arch) and a unethical Doc can fracture your jaw by pulling the 4 rooted tooth out. The proper treatment is to section the molar into 4 quadrants, this is done with Dental hammer and chissal. A slight tap will split the tooth "long ways" and a cross tap will create quadrants. Thats 4 pieces, four roots, which can then be easily pulled out.
Upper molars are a bit more serious, because above the bone is your sinus cavity. A long rooted molar can pull out flesh and open up the sinus area, this will need to be repaired by an "emergency surgery "flap" of the tissue to close the sinus opening.
This is why you should floss! Good Day

How do you come to this conclusion ? :-k
Wife had I think 3 teeth done, maybe 2 or 3 roots each and crowns. I am pretty sure it did not cost 60 to 80 k per tooth, cause I sure don't have that type of money. Wild guest would be under 20k each. But the whole process takes many visits over months, and pay so much after each visit.

Just bumping this up to see if anyone has been to see the Dental Clinic mentioned in the first post.

I really do need to find a decent dentist in Udon; my experience with about 4 of them was not good.

Problem I found is lack of experience: young ladies fresh out of dental school, who were, compared to my dentist in the UK, clueless.

The last one was the US trained specialized dentist in town, who seemed good, but violently expensive. Bit pushy also.

So, please give me your recommendations & the name of the dentist you saw. It will help me alot.

Thanks.

Looking at possible deep root canal treatment, been reading some of the posts about this, but they are a couple of years old? Not living in Udon (NBLP is my home) none of the clinics here perform this treatment, they told me AEK or Bangkok Hosp, AEK were true to form with their expensive prices @ 30,000Bt... Bangkok were better but still expensive, also taking into consideration i would have to drive to Udon & back each appointment, can anyone recommend a decent dentist with a decent price please? Thanks

Well, I can help. After 20 years in the business, I know a bit.
1st "deep root canal treatment" is a mis-statement. Its "ginjavitis"..this is from bad "oral health".
We eat sugars and other foods, and don't brush well. This allows the foods remaining on our teeth to turn into bacteria. This "bacteria" turns into "infection" under the gums. The "infection" shows its face in the form of puffy gums, red gums, bad odor in our breath. Sometimes this is "inherted" from our Mom or Pops DNA (did your Mom or Pop lose their teeth or have many dental problems?). If your problem is really bad, I would ask for the best "hygenist" who is knowledgeable of deep "scalling". (Don't fall for the girl that still has 'achne". ) after this, buy some MYBACIN Anticeptic (not the "mouthwash" ones that are full of sugars) Yes, it burns, but it works. Rinsing repeadedly should kill the germs, bacteria, infection and start to show more healthy gums, within a few days.
Hope that helps.....

Well always reluctant to give recommendations for anything on here so this is just my experience .Recently one of my two front teeth disintegrated, didn't worry me at my age, long past smiling at the girls, but my wife said it made me look funny so persuaded me to go to a private dentist in town , where she goes, normally costs her around 3,000bht. So in I go, but only for a check and estimate of work to be done, for which I was charged 500bht. Anyway after a lengthy explanation of what was needed, was told would need four appointments and cost between 8-10k, I just said thank you very much and never went back. Not sure if that was a normal price or inflated for a farang .Wasn't going to spend that much on what was, after all , just a cosmetic thing , I had no problems, still had others to chew with .Well that was about 3 months ago but then last week I was with a group from Amphur and they were laughing at my Terry Thomas smile so I told them my story, not knowing one of the ladies was the dentist from our local health clinic , who upon hearing,told me to go and see her at the clinic later, which I did, the outcome of which she cleaned the area and proceeded to build a new tooth around what was left , the stub , of the old one, took about 30 minutes in all . When finished looked in the mirror and lo and behold I had got my smile back .Told me to avoid putting pressure on it for a week, which I did. Although I was amazed at how easy she did it all I was even more amazed at the charge, 300bht with a guarantee to come back if I wasn't happy .I think too often we look upon these local clinics as sub standard because they are for the natives Why not pop in to your local one, you might be pleasantly surprised , as I was .
Ageing is a privilige denied to many .

trubrit, that would be a "temporary" crown. Either made from acrylic or metalic "shell". Either way, it is temporary, so like she said, don't push on it or chew with it. It may last awhile, maybe, up to you.
choi choi, if you still got the crown, take it in and get them to recement it..granted the root is not decayed away. If the root is still heathy, get a root canal, then a Post put in it and cement the crown back on it. (Thats the cheapest way to do it). Good luck.

I've found that the best dental work -- regardless of price -- is at this location. Specialists for every range of dental work and care. I've found better prices -- even in other cities in Thailand -- but the care and work and materials were sub par. Value is only gained if the price is less, but the workmanship and materials are the same. I returned to the location shown below. Always satisfied.

I can highly recommend this dentist office for an excellent job of doing the Scaling and Root Planing for gum disease. The one that helped me is a young dentist named Bo who graduated from dental school in Louisiana. His wife, Elizabeth, is also very good for regular dental work, and she too is a graduate of a US university They have a specialist for just about any dental need including root canals which start at around 8000 baht. Bo charged me 6000 baht for the Scaling and Root Planing and broke it up into two sessions over two days. I returned after two months for a single session for the entire mouth for 2000. Each session last about 45-60 minutes. He's not cheap but he does good work and this fee included a full mouth x-ray. He has all the latest technology and equipment, and of course, Bo and his wife speak excellent English. This is probably the same dentist that Lone Star recommended above.
