Dental implant treatment

Dental implant treatments are mainly completed over 2 stages.

  1. Implant post placement-during the first stage, the implant post (like a screw) is surgically embedded into your jawbone. This implant post is left to heal over time and locks into your jaw bone, becoming your new tooth root. 
  2. Building of fake teeth or prostheses over implant post-after three to six months healing, the second stage is to build the prostheses or replacement fake teeth (crown, bridge or denture). At BIDC, if opting for Straumann implants, your abutment an all ceramic crown can be customized by CAD/CAM milling to perfectly fit with your other teeth in size, color and angulation.
How much does a dental implant cost? 

At BIDC, dental implant costs are divided into two installments. During the first stage implant treatment, you pay only for the cost of the implant post (between THB30,000 – 55,000 per tooth). This first stage cost includes the dental implant post, local anesthesia and a healing cap that is placed over to protect your implant post whilst waiting for healing. 

The costing range for the first stage implant post varies with the brand of dental implant as well as the material specification you choose. Well established implant brands include Nobel Biocare and Straumann that are carried world-wide. Within Straumann, there are different material specifications that also vary by price. For example: Straumann carries the conventional titanium SLA implants, the newer smaller and stronger Roxolid SLA implants and special surface SLA implants enable faster fusing with the jaw bone. Each of these material specifications will have varying costs.

During the second stage implant, the remaining amount is THB25,000 per implant. This cost applies is a package price in conjunction with first stage implant treatment at BIDC. An on-site dental implant computerized digital dental lab will specifically customized your dental crown. Dental technicians at the dental center are able make adjustments on the color shade and shape for more natural looking teeth, quick treatment timings and proper precision fit.

Are dental implants painful?

Local anesthesia is administered during the first stage implant post surgical phase. Most people do not feel any pain especially if treated by well experienced implantologists and oral surgeons. BIDC works with specialist dental systems, this means that your dental implant post is placed by experts who have experience with thousands of cases and are well versed on dental implant treatment.

braces

Protect the Long Term Health of your Teeth and Gum with Braces

Braces are an orthodontic treatment that aim to re position teeth and improve the overall appearance and long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints.
Adult braces are often made from plastic and ceramic rather than metal, and they can be either removable, or fixed.
Removable Brace– This is a plate that can be taken out daily for cleaning. Delicate wires and springs attached to the plate move the teeth using gentle pressure.
Fixed Brace– This is used when teeth need a little more guidance. The fixed brace is temporarily stuck to your teeth, and the teeth are moved by flexible wire and brackets.

What are invisible braces?

Invisible braces are made from clear plastic, making them practically invisible. One set of plastic aligner moulds straighten your teeth over a two-week period, before being swapped out for another mould.
Invisible braces are word for approximately 22 hours a day for best results and need to be removed for eating, drinking and cleaning.

Do you need Braces?

Braces aim to re position teeth and improve the overall appearance and long-term of your teeth, gums and jaw joints. If you have crocked teeth that are ruining your good smile, chances are your over-all health could also be compromised. When upper and lower teeth are straining to align correctly, your jaw muscles can be over worked and cause headaches and discomfort. Braces work to re-align your teeth for a more comfortable bite and a brighter smile.

Are you a good candidate for braces?

To determine whether you are a good candidate for orthodontic treatment, you will need a full examination with an Orthodontist. Dental x-rays, and plaster models of your teeth will help them to propose a treatment plan. If you have permanent teeth that are crowding the jaw line, these may need to be removed. Then if you are left with enough permanent teeth, the procedure will go ahead.

How long do you have to wear braces?

For the treatment to be effective, your teeth will need to be held in place for a specific period. Your braces are adjusted by your Orthodontist every four to six weeks during this time
Every individual jawline has different problems and needs. Some only need braces for a few months, some up to two years.
In addition, once the braces are removed a retainer is used for some time to allow the surrounding gum and bone time to settle.
The results of the treatment are dependent on the Orthodontist, but also the commitment of the patient.

Caring for Teeth with Braces

Extra care needs to be taken with your teeth and mouth during your time with braces.
• Brush your teeth carefully twice day.
• Reduce consumption of sugary foods and drinks.
• Avoid sticky and hard foods that may damage or break your braces.

How much will it cost?

The cost of Orthodontics varies depending on your own personal situation and the country you are seeking treatment. It also depends on the type of braces you are choosing (metal, ceramic or invisible).
In the United States dental patients can pay up to $10,000 for Orthodontic treatment, so many people searching for a cheaper option choose to travel abroad instead.
Taqtik Marketplace members have access to hundreds of dental packages from partners all over the world.  Imperial Dental in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia have packages available from $4686 which includes an OPG exam, Lateral Ceph exam, PA Skull examo, Clinical Photograph, Orthodontic Consultation, Study model, Stainless Steel Braces, Scaling and polishing package, and Vivera Retainer.

Permanent dentures are permanent replacement teeth. The dentures bonded or implanted into the mouth in place of damaged or missing teeth. Permanent dentures are considered better than a traditional dentures, as they don’t need to be taken it out, and there is no slippage while eating or talking. There are two types of permanent dentures – partial and complete.

Permanent Denture Options

  • Complete Permanent Dentures: Also referred to as implant permanent dentures and used to replace a few missing teeth or a full set of teeth. If your gums are in a healthy condition, the surgeon will screw titanium rods into the bone tissue of the gums. Implant dentures are cemented on to the titanium posts once the gums are healed.

Veneers get dental patients smiling again.

Veneers get dental patients smiling again because they create a bright, uniform set of teeth. This simple and non-invasive procedure fixes many common dental problems like chipped, stained, crooked or uneven teeth.

Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain that is custom-made to cover and adhere to your teeth. The veneers are matched to the color of your teeth so that they blend in naturally. Once the veneers are in place, you can and should brush them for good dental care.

Veneers can be whitened if they become stained through normal activities like drinking coffee, red wine, or other types of beverages that discolor teeth.

Being fitted for veneers is easy. The dentist will measure you for veneers at the first visit and have you come back to have the made-to-order veneers put in place. Depending on how many veneers are needed and how long it takes the laboratory to create them, the entire process usually takes two visits within one week.

If properly cared for, veneers can last five to ten years. It is an affordable, painless, noninvasive process that will have you smiling again!

Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain and a root canal may be the only solution.

Signs that your tooth could be infected:

Have you experienced shooting pain in your mouth when eating or drinking? Do your gums look swollen and infected? These symptoms may signal substantial tooth decay that has reached a nerve in your tooth. Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain, and a root canal may be the only solution. It is the best treatment to cure the infection and help you save your tooth.

What happens during the root canal procedure?

The much maligned root canal is a blessing when tooth decay causes an infection in the nerve of a tooth, causing excruciating pain. A root canal is generally performed by an endodontist who has specialized training in treatments that focus on the nerves or pulp that are in teeth.

Before the root canal treatment begins, the patient is given local anesthesia to numb the pain. Once the mouth and jaw are numb, the endodontist will drill the decayed tooth removing the pulp while leaving as much of the tooth intact as possible. The nerve canal is cleaned out and then packed with synthetic material. The tooth is refilled and the treatment is complete.

Tooth decay can cause excruciating pain, and a root canal may be the only solution, but some patients find that the tooth has suffered too much decay to be saved. Your dentist will create a plan of treatment for you to determine what is best for your long term dental health.

Quick Facts about Root Canals

  • Specialized treatment
  • Involves damage to tooth nerve
  • May require 2 visits over 2-5 days
  • Tooth may or may not be saved
