This is incorrect. There's a great deal of research that shows a link between genetics and dental decay. Perhaps you might want to take the time to look into it and learn a little about this area for the purpose of discussion.

I'm surprised to see that there's a lot of support for offshoring jobs in this thread.

The evidence is very limited and less of a factor than hygiene. And I have never seen anyone claiming to have "soft teeth" actually undergo any genetic testing to elucidate the issue. "Soft teeth" is a way for people to deflect responsibility.

As previously indicated, you're still incorrect and research shows it. I'll agree with you that it is less of a factor than hygiene and dental visits, but it's still a significant factor. Like I said in my previous post, you should do some research on the topic.

I've never had any dental work done overseas because I haven't needed it. My last cavity was filled in November 1963. Once in a while here in the states I get my teeth cleaned, and fortunately, I have an honest dentist.

As for overseas dental work? From what people tell me, it can definitely be cheaper. Much cheaper. And it's not only dental work that can be cheaper overseas. Let's say you need open heart surgery. $100K plus in the USA, $15K in Bangkok. And most of the doctors in Bangkok have been trained in the USA.

I don't care enough to argue here. You won the internet today so be proud.

Would you get open hear surgery in Bangkok if you needed it?

Hi buddy! I recommend you search first online via business listings in overseas area where you want to have dental work. Just type something connected with dentistry plus the place in google search bar. Also, I think dental implant treatment is really depends on how big or small is the dental work that needs to be done.

at $1100 a crown dumbf&cks still can't make it right/last. US dental care is hyped up and lost touch with economic basics, in 2001 I had $300 crown/tooth made in TN (still have it), and it was nightmare quality ever since despite QUADRUPLING costs per crown in Ohio $1100, money doesn't buy chit. I know people flying to the Eastern Europe for dental work, makes enormous economic sense if you've got a mouthful of issues.

Drnkess, soon, a "regular" will be around telling you if you use oil in your mouth, cavities go away, broken teeth will grow back, extracted teeth will grow back, teeth with irreversible pulpitis will heal themselves.... just smile and go to the next post.


As to foreign dentistry, it can be good and very cheap, but please remember that sanitation is usually lacking and you have no recourse if things go awry. It's a gamble that could pay off well or prove to be a total disaster.


Choose wisely, grasshopper.
