I did contact one office in Bangkok.  A couple of Indian doctors who seemed to discuss more about the pain medication more than anything. I'll check it out.  Thanks for the info.

Ask for Dr. Duangjai Angkoonsit to have a look and then advise you. She took quite some time and patience to explain me the different ways and estimated costs, and then let me decide, whether crown, post, implant or bridge. She rather did things extremely carefully than the fast way. I think she's in Korat on Wednesday evenings. From the internet I learned, that she also works for a dental clinic in Bangkok and publishes research.

Thanks JF. I haven't done anything about it yet.  The last dentist said to wait a few weeks because of an infection.  I'm ready now and will certainly check it out.  I'm just trying to decide on what method to use.  Perm inlays?  Bridge?  I've never done this before so I don't know.

Hi BF,

how did you proceed with the problems associated with that gingival pocket? Sorry, I didn't notice your post in time. I had a problem like that before. A dentist in The Mall proved to be of no help at all. She just suggested to pull a tooth that wasn't sick. My question about a bridge over a missing backtooth she answered with "no can do!" So I treated myself to have that gingival pocket grow close again fast, using balm (Counterpain) on the outside of my jaw several times a day to stimulate blood circulation  and disinfection. In addition I used a pulsing oral irrigator to massage the gums. It worked!

As to a good dentist I had positive experiences lately at Ortho Smile Clinic on Suranarai Road, behind the gas station at the outbound lane opposite Rajamongkhon University of Technology. Dr. Jarutporn Totanchokchaikorn applied a successful Root Canal Treatment. And Dr. Duangjai Angkoonsit fixed my teeth with crowns.

The clinic is kept very clean and is well equipped, can do X-rays and 3D jaw and teeth tomography. They have a lot of personnel treating. When I was there, usually three took care of my treatment. Prices are not higher than usual. I noticed the clinic being frequented by ethnic Chinese mainly. Except for emergencies appointments are needed. They will be confirmed by phone a day before, resp. you will be reminded. They even give you appointements for regular checkups 6 months in advance.

They  have a website in thai.

Hi All,

I need to find I really good dentist capable of doing a proper tooth transplant.  For some odd reason, one of my front teeth (yes, I know) has started to come loose.  It hasn't fallen out, yet.  It started with some infection on the gum over the tooth like a huge pimple with loads of puss in it.  I started taking antibiotics, popped and cleared the pimple thing out and all seemed to go back to normal for a week.

One day I was brushing my teeth and all of a sudden, it went loose again.  It seemed to have healed itself, but now the tooth has dropped down a bit and not quite in line with the other front tooth.  Maybe, I can keep it....I don't know.  There is NO pain at all either.

If anyone knows a really good and competent dentist, I would really appreciate it.
