esperiense: tooth replacement options include from best to least
1)Implant - N200,000 and above
2)Bridge - N 40,000 and above
3)Denture- N5,000 and above
This is an estimate, the exact price varies from govt to private clinics. And additional tooth requires extra payment
I'm interested in replacing a lost tooth. What do these (implant, bridge, denture) imply and what are the pros and cons?

Re: Meet A Dentist by Hotdiamond(m): 6:01pm On Jan 09, 2013
to avoid complications in the health of your tooth. It is advisable to visit your dentist at least every three months for check up. in naija most people visit the dentist only When they have problem with their tooth. Sad But true

esperiense: Refilling is always better all times except in cases where its not possible to be done, this will be known by yo dentist.

Also root canal treatment. People really dread this operation but it ensures you keep your teeth instead of removal.

Oga dokitor, thank Sango say I jam u today.
I am moving to dentistry from general medicine. Thinking of specializing in O and M surgery.
Dedication and book na small thing to me.
I just want to know, do I have a future in naija or do I have to go abroad.
Naija doctors, my own lecturers, always dey complain about naija.
I have a cousin dentist in training abroad, UK, just dentist not surgeon, he's still in medical school like me and he says there's greener pastures there and I no wan chop dry grass and bitter leaf for naija.
I wan chop big succulent and juicy elephant grass.
So please tell me about my future in dentistry. Love

esperiense: No matter how much antiseptic u use, your mouth become colonised with bacteria again immediately after few mins, its fluoride that offers the neccessary resistance a tooth need against dis bacteria. Since u can't acheive a bacteria free mouth, we need a strong healthy teeth with fluoride to combat d relativelY constant bacterial environment in mouth. Antiseptic pastes r only reccomended as addition in some conditions not as substitutes

I have issue with this, i once have bleeding gum, apart from visiting the dentist every two months, i also brush my teeth atleast three times a day with close-up, sensodyne just name it. After several research on the internet i started using Forever gel tooth paste and OraMD. Those two contains no flouride content. I also found out that some countries, have actually stop the addition of flouride to tooth paste and also water supply.

irpheezy: @OP I want to bleach my teeth pls can yu giv ṁ̭̥̈̅̄e any home made recipe 4dat? Tanks

here is my little recpie dear..= my homemade teeth whitening recipe is to prepare a mixture of ½ tsp of baking soda and 1-2 drops of hydrogen peroxide. Apply this mixture on your teeth just twice a week. It will bleach the teeth. You may feel some irritation on your gums but it won’t harm your teeth and gum.
