aian_27,

I'm not an orthodontist but we do have an orthodontist in our office. She can look at your case and see if you need further adjustment. I can't give the free consultation or discounts for her tho. that usually applies to me. :D

dj_flip03,

Yes, the procedure costs 5k per tooth. The reason for this is that it is a more involved procedure than the usual extraction. Incisions have to be made, and bone has to be drilled into, as well as he tooth. Safety precautions and care considerations are also doubled. I believe it's worth the trouble to go through the operation rather than suffer through days of agony tho. :D

And yes, I offer a 20% discount to MTC members. You can see more details in the Membership Benefits section. :D

ARAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!

Ang sakit naman pala nun, Doc! Pero sige I'll think about it, nawala kasi yung sakit eh. Baka umayos na yung ipin ko.

Thanks for the info Doc!! B)

If you mean by not tolerating he gets tired easily, then the dentist can place a simple piece of rubber called a mouth prop to keep the mouth open. If he has difficulty with the taste or is uncomfortable, perhaps a children's sedative will prove effective. :D

Thanks doc for your immediate reply... a piece of rubber was also used but to no avail... i think a children's sedative was also the advice by the dentist(which she can't do)... do you perform this kind of treatment doc?

I don't do sedation on children but I can refer you to a children's dentist or pedodontist. Just pm me your location or the most convenient landmark ner your place and I'll see who I can refer. :D

:blush: :blush: :blush: Thanks pro. I do what I can to help! :D

I can list the top 5 because if I list more, there aren't too many differences in the prices anyway. :D

1. Dental Implants
2. Orthodontic treatment
3. Complete fixed dentures
4. Complete removeable dentures
5. Fixed bridges, depending on the number of teeth involved

I hope this satisfies your curiosity! :D

doc tanong lang, i've got one of my molar to have a tempo filing.
kaso nalipat ako ng work place from manila to cavite. napabayaan ko na yung
tempo filing (d na ko makabalik sa dentist ko layo kasi eh) and napansin ko unti-unti syang lumulubog. parang
lumalaki yung butas from the bottom of pasta.
may way pa bang ma save pa yung tooth ko? balak ko na sanang ipabunot kaso
sayang eh. kumikirot na sya kapag tinatamaan while eating.....

Thanks Bro Shinta! O sige, eto mga sagot ko:

From hardman

doc mgkano ang braces up & down?


Usually I don't post our rates but since they're more standardized than regular treatments, they usually go from 75k up. You have to ask our resident ortho and I doubt that she'll give a discount for MTC members. That discount is usually from me. :D

From daimaoh

oral... do u accept Maxicare ba? just wondering....


Unfortunately our office doesn't accept Maxicare. Sorry dude! :(

From metallica

doc, musta??? magkano palinis ng ipin???


I can only give you a ballpark figure for ethical reasons but it's usually above 1k. That's without subtracting the discount. :D

I hope my answers helped you guys! :D

Aba! Gusto mo best of both worlds a? Unfortunately it's not possible. At least in my office. :( Ako lang ang member ng MTC kasi mga may asawa na yung lasy dentists namin. So take your pick: woman or man(yak). :lol: :lol:

First of all, bakit nilagyan ng temporary filling? Root canal ba yan? If that's the case, baka 'di pa masyadong nalinisan yung canal kaya may infection uli, hence the pain. May pressure kasi pag kumakain at naididiin sa infection. Pwede naman ituloy ang root canal at pagalingin yung infection e. :D

Second, lulubog talaga yung temporary filling kasi hindi kasing tibay yan ng permanent for obvious reasons. :lol: Ang temporary filling inilalagay lang for about a week or so habang under observation yung ngipin o may ginagawang filling sa lab. Pwede mong ipa-palit yung filling sa dentista o ituloy yung complete treatment para permanent na ang ilalagay dyan.

Hope this helps! :D
