Dental implants

Recommended Posts

Today I had oral surgery to put implants, to replace my teeth, I was in the chair for two hours, they drilled into my jaw bone to implant screws then stiched my gums over the 10 mm screws, After the anisthetic wore off, the fucking pain was horrible, I was given some very strong prescription pain killers, and antibiotics, both with no alcohol warnings on them, so I can't even cheer myself up with a glass or two of Liquid happiness. anyone else had implants? does it get worse as this is only the first stage, it will be months before I have teeth.

Sorry you are in pain.  Where did you go?

 

I had it done at Dentist @ Beach in Pattaya (in Central Festival).  

 

I was not in any pain at all and was very surprised about it really.  However, I only had one tooth implanted.

 

I had a little discomfort and bled just a little.  I took it easy for one day and was back at the bars the next night.

Hi, can I ask what was the cost involved? I need to replace 2 teeth, I was thinking of doing it on my next trip which I hope will be in a couple of months time.

 

Thanks in advance.

I have had dental implants at Dentist @ Beach and at Studio Smile Dental.  Although Dr Cherry is good I found the specialist dentist for implants at Studio Smile Dental better.  The equipment at Studio Smile Dental is also much more modern with digital x-rays (all on site) and tv screens to amplify what the dentist is looking at.   The last implant was totally pain free and only took a little more than half an hour.  I even joked that given the price it all seemed too quick.  Both dentist are similarly priced but prices in both places can go up from 45,000 to 60,000 depending on the brand of implant chosen. The actual dental surgeries at Dentist @ Beach are also very small.

 

The main dentist at Studio Smile Dental is Dr Tapasit and although he is qualified to do implants he leaves the actual implant to another specialist and Dr Tapasit does the crown work later.

 

I had slight bruising on face after the first implant at Dentist @ Beach and a little discomfort, some discomfort with my first implant at Studio Smile Dental and surprisingly and thankfully no more discomfort than having a filing after my second implant at Studion Smile Dental.

Do you get any guarantee?

 

I had a crown done for 16-20k which I think was guaranteed.

 

Am infection occurred in the gum and the whole lot had to be ripped out, so another crown isn't possible.

 

It seemed that when they did the root canal work they didn't see that I had a subsidiary canal - "some people have" is all I got.

 

They said if I wanted an implant to leave it 6 months, but I doubt they'll honour any guarantee so I'm not sure whether it's worth the risk.

I'm surprised to read of the problems described in this thread.

 

I've had three implants done here at different times over the last couple of years, all without any pain or discomfort or bruising etc. They did give me pain-killers in case I needed them, but they weren't necessary.

 

I had my implants done by a specialist at Phyathai hospital in Si Racha. They cost 40,000B each including crowns, digital x-rays etc.

 

A couple of local clinics in Pattaya said that one of my implants could not be done at all, but they had no problem with it at Si Racha.

 

I would not consider using a regular dentist for implants: only someone who specialises in that job and does only that.

Can you add some information about this please?

Doctor name, directions to hospital, telephone. That sort of stuff.

Also there are different grades of pin. Did they give you a choice.

I just finished the last stage of my implants today. That's weird that you're having that much pain with prescription painkillers. They just gave me some OTC paracetamol... The same kind you get at 711. I was eating BBW and ribs within an hour after they drilled the implants and stitched me.

 

They did ache for about a week or so after, but it wasn't terrible.

I think maybe my dental work is a bit more major, i have no gum as such and most of my jaw bone removed, due to cancer surgery, they have only installed abutments so far drilled into what is left of my jaw bone, The next step is sewing a piece of my hip bone to the abutments then use implants to attach teeth. it's been over a week now and my mouth is still swollen and hurts like fuck.

Maybe a silly question on my part but  --  have you gone back to the dentist or at least called him/her to talk about the pain you are having.  It that pain normal?

 

Hope it works out well for you very soon.

They have a fairly extensive website: http://www.phyathai.com/home/en

 

Cant remember the dentist's name offhand (Thai name!) but I think she's the only one that does implants. I can look it up if needed.

 

No choice of implant offered at that price. I asked the dentist if they were OK and she said "yes". She could have said "no" in which case I probably would have gone for more expensive ones, but she didnt.

 

They have a helpful salesman/intermediary Brit called Gavin who can probably give you more information and make appointments. His details should be on their site.

 

I also go there for my yearly health check-ups. Some of their package deals are good value, though you should wait for the monthly promo that suits your needs.

Yes, your procedure sounds much different to mine. They simply drilled the implants in my teeth and then stiched my gums back up at first. Then I came back 3 months later and they placed the abutement and crown.

 

Sounds like you're getting a bone graft, and I'm surprised that they would install the abutments during the implant placement and usually you get a bone graft during or before the implant installation... not after. I have never heard of them going and giving an bone graft aftwards, and I also understand that bone grafting is much more painful than the drilling of implants ,so be prepared.

 

If you have no gums though, I'm surprised that they would even give you implants. What is going to prevent food debris and bacteria from building between your implants and your jawbone? Your gums are the protection from those elements, so I dunno man... Sounds a bitch sketchy! Look up peri implantitis and if you're feeling worried about your implants, don't hesitate to get a 2nd opinion. Drilling directly into the bone is a pretty crazy thing!

I have full faith in my oral surgeon professer kwok, I have seen loads of dentists to replace my teeth, unfortunately any thing they do will be a compromise. I need the whole left side of my lower jaw rebuilt 11 teeth, I had some serious surgery done on my face, rebuilt with flesh taken from the back of my leg now the scar hardly notices, it was only done 6 months ago, but the skin graft on my leg has still not properly healed, but hey I still alive once I get my  teeth sorted I will head straight to patts. saddest thing I won't ever be able to lick pussy/

 Thanks. I spoke with their Translation department and got an estimate for the procedure I am interested in. The number was higher than the "best" hospital in Bangkok.

Thailand is getting really expensive for health care (relative to their cost of living) and it will be smart to explore alternatives. This is a routine procedure and I think I am going to check India or another south Asian country - they have good medical facilities also.

Ah, I thought you were interested in a standard implant. I would have given a different answer had I known otherwise.

 

I would not recommend Phyathai for other dental services due to the high prices, though I suspect that the quality of the job done for these is very good. For some reason implants are quite cheap there, as are the heath check packages. I have no experience of the other medical services and prices there.

 

It is absolutely vital in Thailand to check all prices in advance, when possible. Many people have told me that similar medical services can be much cheaper in India (or even Malaysia), but of course there is the issue of travelling there, getting visas, paying for accommodation, arranging the treatment in advance from a distance, waiting times etc etc

Depending on the nature of the problem I would consider getting treatment in Malaysia as I could drive there in my car and combine it with a holiday.
