Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

@Oscarsmum About the airline, It seems that if you leave and return between Tuesday and Friday the have great rates, they skyrocket though if its Saturday-Monday. I also noticed that the apartments are in the same place as well, i wonder why there is a 35 EU price difference though

@Dr. Alice Thank you I will do my best. My wife will be joining me for some days so I am hoping that my post-procedure(s) condition wont impair me from doing so

If anyone has any experiences to share about sightseeing and getting dental procedures done in the same stay i would be interested to know. What they found relaxing and supportive post-procedure, and what wasn't the best idea.

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

If I may suggest: make a list of Qs for a dentist so you don't forget anything, they likely prescribe antibiotics and painkillers - listen carefully what they say and follow their instructions.
Painkillers should be taken b4 pain starts to prevent it
You are likely to have all advise in writting

I would recommend not to plan some running around the city that would increase your blood pressure!
Take it easy and try to take your mind of by doing something relaxing

All the best!
P.S. May be take a dictionary?!

Sitting on a tourist bus watching all the sights go by, must be one of the most un-increasing-of-blood-pressure-level things I could think of doing after having dental surgery i.e relaxing.......NOT to be classed as 'running around the city '

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

After reading this thread i decided to go to Haifadent. In fact I already have an appointment on early April. I hope everything will work fine. For the transportation and accomodation, i take the Budapest Package from Malev. 350€ for two include return flight from Zrh - Budapest and 2 night accomodation at Ibis City (with breakfast), which is only a few houses from Haifadent. And they also offer airport transfer from the airport to the hotel for 7€ per person.

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

Slight update:
I originally booked at the Nova Apartments through www.onlyrooms.ch for 10 nights at a cost of 417eu. I have been watching the prices since i have booked and today i re-booked my booking for 327 eu. Almost a 100 eu price drop!!! On top of that right now there is a deal going on if you book 10 nights+ with www.onlyrooms.com they will give you 30 eu back. So my grand total for a 10 night stay in the Nova Apartments in Budapest is 297 euro! Cant beat that. I must send my thanks to Cybersuz for the info.

Last year I made two visits (minimum treatment and follow-up checkup) to a dentist in Zug canton, and they cost CHF120 in total.

Zugbound, what was the quote given to you for checkups for your husband and daughter?
Could you kindly provide the name and contact details for your Zug dentist. Thank you

I went to Budapest 6 years ago to get a root canal and to pull out 2 wisdom teeth. It would have cost CHF 2000 to do here. I went through a Swiss company that organised everything and gives you a 5 year guarantee on the work done. If there is any complications in 5 years they pay for it to be fixed in Switzerland.
I got a trip to Budapest for 5 days and the dental work for about CHF1000.
Could you kindly provide the name and contact details of this company. Thank you

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

For anyone interested in getting implants in Budapest here's the end of my story:

I went over in February for five days and had six screws for implants fitted , (see earlier post) and had to wait for six months before I went back, to let the screws fuse with my bone. I returned there last month.

Before, I'd been to www.jokaidental.hu/en, but when I contacted my dentist to make sure he could see me when I came over he asked if I could go to another surgery as there wasn't an available chair at Jokai. This new surgery is part of a group consisting of Jokai, Haifadent, Delident (where I went) and one other. The dentists sometimes move from surgery to surgery as they're needed, particularly mine who's an implantologist.

Anyway....I booked two weeks holiday (?) and went over with Mr.P who also wanted some work done. We stayed at www.locusttreeapartments.com where we'd stayed the last time, and it was as good as before.

My first appointment was to check on the screws, some of which were exposed and easily seen....the other two he had to cut open the gum to expose and fit a cap on. He also pulled out a crown I had so that the implants would fit better. Impressions were taken and I went back another couple of times for fittings for the implants themselves. The first set were too short but the second set was perfect......and I'm wearing them now!

I had booked two weeks, which they recommend for the amount of implants I was getting (12 teeth), just in case there are any problems with the fitting. The only problem I had was that I picked at what I thought was loose cement, and it turned out to be a thin part of tooth. Luckily I was able to go back and get it replaced.

During the first week my husband said it was a bit stupid having a lovely set of top teeth and a horrible (filling-full) set of bottom ones.....so I got all my amalgam fillings replaced with white ones. And I am sooo glad I did!

What I have to say is that I was always under the impression that implants get 'screwed' into your mouth.....they don't, they get cemented in, just like crowns. This means that although I only have six screws (and two old crown posts) I actually have twelve teeth being supported by them.

The whole experience for me was trouble-free and I only wish I'd done it earlier in life. (Unfortunately I had to wait to get it for a 50th birthday present!) And the million-dollar question......what did it cost? About 6000 CHF, which sounds a lot, but for all the implants I got it was really cheap. It was also paid for in two installments....after the work in February, and after the recent work.

I hope this helps anyone who's thinking about going over for implants, and please don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you want any other questions answered.

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

Question for those who have gone to the dentist abroad. I believe medical (dental too?) expenses payed in Switzerland can be deducted from taxes. Is this the case for the costs of treatment in say Hungary?

My guess is not, but maybe somebody has already done or at least tried it.

Re: Dentists abroad. Anybody ever used and can recommend one outside of Switzerland

My wife has been quoted 600CHF for two fillings locally. I was thinking of popping into Germany or France. I am working on the assumption that it will probably cost about half the amount and we can then have a day out somewhere.

Does anyone have any recommendations just over the border in France or Germany?

Thanks
