1) consultation and procedure done on my first visit. Was in pain already, so really glad they started working on it the moment we agreed on the price. If you can wait, go after the June holidays.

2) I made a total of 4 visits. I believe it depends on the complexity of the procedure too. There is also a risk that your tooth cannot be saved so u may end up making more visits. Rm1900 was the price I paid, and it includes the x-rays and misc too. Iirc, sg ones charge these separately.

3) can't really answer on their behalf. You have to call to ask, if u can get through. I was attended by Dr Cheng. A lady in her late 40s or early 50s. Pretty ok with her demeanor.

As mentioned in my earlier posts, you have to manage your expectations. They have a different working style and culture than sg. Hope it works out well for you.

Hi, thanks for reply, when you say luckily they started treatment upon confirmation of quote so they can only start treatment a on 2nd visit ? I just went to polyclinic Dentist, he mentioned cannot be saved, zzz. I was thinking whether to go CH TEE to ask whether can save. Alternatively, if extract and implant, where to recommed for implant, good and cheap? Whether to do in Singapore and claim medisave or go JB CH tee, any recommendations? Anyone?

thanks for the update
hmmm yes my decayed tooth has been removed completely. and yes i need an implant followed by a crown. sorry i got root canal all mixed up with implant.

seems like i can claim S$1250 from medisave. my first dentist gave me a S$3k quote total. my outlay would be ~S$1.8k
if 5.5kMYR is similar to SG pricing S$1.8k. lppl. hahaha
Guess i will make an appointment at polyclinic to have another quote.

wait crowning seems to be another cost ?
my 1st dr said s$3k+ for everything before subsidy.

RM1900 in CH Tee includes both root canal and crowning and x-rays for one tooth. I do not know if the RM5k+ for implants I was quoted includes the crowning. All the best.

It means everything including the treatment started on the first visit. :s22:

Seeking a 2nd opinion is fine, since alot of polyclinic dentists are just fresh grads. My last exp with one was bad when he heard me mentioned that I did my root canal in JB. Guess it peeves them that people here are going there for treatment. :s13:

I digress, but you must know that there is a risk with root canal too. If it fails, you would have paid extra for nothing, then have to top up another sum for implants.

Go check out the cost of doing implants for your tooth and work out the sums just like what the other poster did. The sum I was quoted for a molar implant was RM5.5k+. Yours might be cheaper. Go ask in the edmw subforum, since we only focus on Malaysia here. Good luck.

i would like to guess molar teeth are more expensive becos they are way inside your mouth.
i dont know what mine falls under becos it is in between.
hahahaa.. not too back, not too front.. so when i smile, my gap is still hidden somewhat.

Now im just worried my teeth moves a lot during this few months period of healing after removal of my tooth. The doc told me not to worry. i actually have not been using much of that side of my teeth since but still the youtube videos show how horrible the neighbouring teeth will collaspe when there is the gap for prolong period.

Meaning I can do root canal treatment on first visit if it could be saved?
When I mentioned too costly for me, The dentist told me oversea treatment is cheaper like malaysia etc lol.

Doing implant, does the material used differs in term of cost? As there are different clinics offering vast difference in pricing.

Yup. But you must be early. I doubt they can start work on your tooth if you reached near their closing hours. Again, there is a risk that the root canal procedure might fail, so be mentally prepared.

Can't advise you on the implant. You should try asking in edmw sub forum instead because of more users.

mine was a similar scenario i guess... that was why i got mixed up betw rootcanal and implanting earlier

the dentist gave me option of root canal (save the decayed tooth) or extract it out and do implant
after which will do crowning.....

i choose the later option to extract it....thereafter the dentist said luckily i didnt choose root canal as he had a hard time removing my tooth.
he was pulling away with his pliers and my weak tooth was broken into bits at the joints which he held with the pliers when he did that. he did that for over 10mins...each time he would say coming out soon but then his pliers will fail, sigh and then repeat...... hahhaa

I would say, it is your personal decision & it is up to the 2nd dentist whether to crown for you if he didn't do the RC in the first place.

My maid complained of toothache so I brought her to SG dentist for initial check. X-ray, antibiotics and mouthwash cost SGD 140. Maid had 2 decayed molars that needs to be extracted asap but the roots are broken so may need to surgically remove. In the end we were quoted SGD 500 upwards to surgically extract a tooth. Thankfully found out about C.H. Tee dental clinic in JB through the forum and went over last Friday morning. The queue outside the clinic was long but we only waited about one and half hours to see the Dentist. Dr Alex Lee who attended to us was a friendly young man who explained things patiently to my maid before he started. He managed to extract both decayed teeth normally and patched up 5 big fillings for her in less than 2 hours. Total cost was only MYR 800. My maid was so relieved the dental cost wasn’t as bad as initial estimates.

Went on Sat to CH Tee.

I miscalculated my journey I thought I will be safe reaching the causeway at 730am... in the end only reach CH Tee around 1030am. Sigh.

The lady dentist is nice. I have 2 problems, 1 is a cracked tooth and 1 is pain in another tooth. She said she has to solve the pain problem before attempting the cracked tooth problem (though cynical me may think she prefer more visits for money?)

The pain tooth, she say she will clean and fill it up for me instead of going to root canal operations, ask me visit again 2 weeks later. If the pain stops, then there is no need for root canal. If the pain persists, then she will go to next step then.
This is why I though at least she tries other ways before going for the big operation (which is more costly)

sigh. after this pain solve, the cracked one probably crowning, which is going to be expensive also
