Canberra Dental Surgeons

By FB 29 November 2009 27

I have just had the pleasure of breaking a huge chunk out of one of my impacted wisdom teeth.  I went to the dentist who said it can only be removed under a general.  He referred me to a surgeon who said it will cost me around $3,000 to have it removed.  That’s actually for two teeth but the price for one was about $2,700.

Having never had a tooth removed under a general I have no idea if this is excessive or not. I know that a general costs a lot of money but I was expecting $3,000.

My question is, does this sound unreasonable?

Does anyone know of a cheaper dental surgeon in Canberra who can offer a general?  Or if you have had to endure the same can you recommend one.

What’s Your opinion?

Wisdom Teeth removal canberra is a piece of cake at northside family dental in Gungahlin. Dr Vamsi Talluri has a great chairside manner and he has apparently proved to be an expert in pulling the wisdom tooth in my known circles. They have an informative webpage on wisdom tooth extraction which may be useful for the Canberra community looking for a good dentist in gungahlin which is http://northsidefamilydental.com.au/restorative/wisdom-tooth-extraction/

Our daughter’s wisdom teeth (4) were removed by Dr Carmello Bonnano in Woden. Job well done and, because it was done with an anaesthetist in his surgery rather than the hospital, cost about $1000 less than another Dr. quoted. to do the same job but in a hospital surgery room. From memory it cost about $1,800 all up. You only get a couple of hundred dollars back on Medicare for the anaesthetist

Had my four wisdom teeth removed on Monday under sedation. All good – last thing I remember was having the urge to close my eyes and the next thing was when they “woke” me up to go to recovery. Not much pain and very little swelling 2 full days after the procedure.

Highly recommended – lovely staff and a great dentist.

My 20 year old also had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted (3 came out in one go; 1 had to be drilled out) and all went well. Same price paid (both private and medicare reimburse some). Very nice dentist!!!

I can personally recommend http://www.asavanant.com if you are going to go to Bangkok. They are very, very professional, state of the art and willing to cater to you. This was the first dentist I have actually fallen asleep in the chair at (without drugs).

I had some work done with them, and then had two dentists in the UK comment on what a great job they were.

The surgi-centre are monopolists. And likely over-servicers.

I was quoted $2500 to remove 2 molars earlier this year; $1000 fee, $1000 theatre, $500 anaesthesia.

Picked up Yellow Pages. Went to DR MIKE WALSH, Shell Harbour.

Done in the chair in a few minutes with no anaesthesia for $780.

Thank-you and good night!

I also had some work done by Dr Carmelo of Corinna Street Woden. They were impacted teeth roots left behind after I had the majority of tooth was taken out by a public service that did not have the tools or expertise to remove the roots. They had in fairness advised me of that before they removed my tooth.

The roots were removed under general and the job was pretty good. There was a little pain, because it was a difficult extraction, but the good doctor was extreemly considerate about that and thanked me for explaining that I had a big phobia of pain. His bedside manner was excellent. The after care was great.

I could not reccomend him higher.
