meron sa sm southmall (tapat ng yamaha) yung dental city ata, kaso medyo mahal
basta pedia dentist mahal kasi specialized siya. sa lourdes hospital sa sta. mesa manila may ilang pedia dentist dun. pero sa pedia ng anak mo ask if meron siya recommendado na pedia dentist ksi kailangan ng pedia approval kung meron procedure na gagawain.
kuwento ko lang...kasi anak ko meron cavities sa 2 front teeth niya, sabi ng pedia dentist, e, very early stage, kaso meron stain kaya parang maitim in between nung 2 teeth. gusto gawain ay try ilang sessions kung kaya unti-untiin at baka pumayag magpa pasta anak ko, e, nakakatakot yung sound ng drill ano! so advice ng pedia dentist ay sedate. e, ako naman ang natakot sa procedure kasi sa anus idaraan ang sedation tapos ilang hours na ma-woozy feeling ang bata. tapos libo-libo ang cost kasi iba bayad ng anaesthisiologist sa pedia dentist at per tooth pa ng pastahan ang singil. anyway, against ang asawa ko sa procedure at reason niya na baby teeth pa lang naman at hindi pa permanent, so kahit pastahan, e, matatangal din naman ang ngipin.
nag-usap din kami pedia, at open naman siya sa procedure, kaso tinignan din ngipin ng anak ko at sa personal opinion niya ay since hindi naman daw nagrereklamo anak ko na masakit, at alagaan lang sa flouride toothpaste at flossing, since tutoo naman na hindi pa nga permanent ang ngipin.
so balik kami sa pedia dentist at sinabi ko nga na hindi kami magpapa-sedate, ano pa ba puwede gawain sa teeth para hindi lumala ang cavity. ayun at cleaning na lang at pinahiran ng flouride gel na pang protect daw ng teeth.
so sa ngayon kahit andun pa rin cavity, e, hindi naman lumalala kasi alaga sa toothbrush, floss at minimized candy eating, at drinking lots of water.
Try the Pediatric Dental Center
The Pediatric Dental Center (PDC) is located at Banawe St. in Quezon city. It's at the 5th floor (not sure) of the building which has a Shakey's at the 1st floor. The building is beside the Fe Del Mundo Hospital (Children's Medical Center).
Baby teeth maintain the space for the permanent teeth.
If baby teeth are lost too early, the space for the permanent teeth gets reduced. Without enough space, sometimes when the teeth come out they overlap each other (nagkakasungki-sungki). To fix this, braces would be needed later on.
If baby teeth get infected, not only will your kid get bad breath, the developing permanent teeth which lie inside the bone and gums underneath could become malformed and discolored when they come out, necessitating prosthetic procedures later on.
It is actually an intelligent and cost-effective move to keep baby teeth free of cavities. Trust me, doing so would mean less headaches for you in the future.
Yung cousin-in-law ko lady dentist... although alaga naman sa toothbrush yung anak nya, nasira pa rin maaga yung teeth nya - siguro around 5 years old. Naupod actually...
Ang ginawa nung CIL ko, nilagyan nya ng temporary bridge, para lang hindi maka-affect sa eating and talking yung pagkawala ng 4 front teeth. Nung nakita nyang patubo na yung permanent teeth, tinanggal na nya yung temp bridge!
try dra. asuncion torres
she has clinics at medical city and cardinal santos.
super ptatient siya sa anak kong dentist-phobic (sino ba hindi )
her number is 6313861.
mytitagirl, I would have done the same thing under the circumstances. Who'd want their kid to be sedated for something so very far from being life-threatening.
Basta ang gawin na lang ngayon, siguraduhing di na mabubulok ang ibang ngipin. Don't let baby sleep with bottle in mouth, that's the one of the best things you can do. Also, when baby eats something sweet or starchy that tends to cling to the teeth like bread or even a banana, make sure she drinks enough water to wash away as much of the stuff as possible, or make her eat something else non-sweet which will take the sweet stuff out just as well.
to be honest, i only found out this year there's such a thing. is it necessary? couldn't the regular pedia visit root out any problems?
My mom's a pediatrician (physician). Yes, a pediatrician can tell if a child has cavities or not. If she finds problems in the mouth, she refers the kid to a pediatric dentist or a general dentist for dental treatment.
Pediatric dentists are really better at handling kids when compared to the rest of us dentists.
Similar to orthodontists, pediatric dentists have undergone specialty training after passing the dental boards. We usually referd kids with unmanageable behavior problems to them, as behavior problems are their specialty. They also treat special children ( Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Autism, etc.).
They also treat "regular kids" and are very good at doing so, armed with the latest techniques that will hopefully keep kid's teeth cavity free.

You're welcome. Good luck.
I brought my 2 yr old daughter to the dental clinic at podium (Lower ground level). So far everything went very well coz concern namin that the first visit to the dentist shouldn't be traumatic. The consultation fee is P300. They did a cleaning on her teeth whch cost P100 but we were given a discount so we paid P360 total. Contact #: 6330911
Wow prettylilac, that's cheap! What's the name of the dental clinic in Podium?Originally Posted by prettylilac
