Dental work in Vietnam

    One of the things I wanted to do while I here was get some much needed dental work done. Over the years, every time I had a dental problem, I would just have the troubling tooth pulled which still was more then I could afford usually. This wasn't the best idea but since it started out with my rear molars, it wasn't very noticeable. One thing that was getting more and more noticeably was one of my front teeth was dieing ( and the other was a old crown done in my Marine Corps days.)  I knew that eventually one if not both were going to need fixing. I had a bridge with a crown next to my front tooth that was also done in The Marine Corps. This lasted well as it didn't give out till after more then 30 years but last year it failed. for about 2 years I stopped trimming my mustache to help hide the problem. As the problem got worse I started to smile a lot less being very self conscious about my teeth. Needless to say, I needed to address the problem so I looked into getting some dental work while in Vietnam. A Facebook friend had a son that lived here and he had a dentist that worked out of her house ( she moved her dentist office out of the commercial space to save on rent). I sent several emails back and forth and she met me the first day that I arrived and began working. Working 3 to 5 hours everyday, I have been in her dental chair getting all this and then some done. In all I received 9 porcelain crowns, 4 fillings and 2 partial dentures ( porcelain and titanium )for my rear molars. I have so many teeth now that I feel like Gary Busey when I smile.

  1. My Tax preparer went to Indonesia and had porcelain work done a few years ago. Fast and good work. Glad you were able to get fixed up, too.

  2. My dental care specialist confers with me as a friend or family member would, with no pressure to do anything without thinking through every aspect of the available options.

  4. Continue posting about this topic because it’s very interesting. Mine I started my blog with very basic. Thanks for the post.

  5. Though teeth problem is not a major one but it can be pathetic sometimes. It is applicable when you have problem with your front teeth. It's great you fix it, now you can laugh freely and you also don't need to keep your mustache untrimmed. The medical science has been very much advanced that it can make the impossible things possible. The dental section is a manor one. Anyways, thanks for sharing your experience.
