My Tooth & Dentist in Jakarta ☆ 歯とジャカルタの歯科医

May 30, 2011

You might laugh at me, but I chipped my tooth in the upper back over this past weekend, because I neglected a tooth with decay. I didn’t even know. Ouch. At least no one could see it. The good news is that there are some good dentists in Jakarta. I found a wonderful orthodontist here thanks to my friend. I will write about the dental office I went today on Friday. You might think that it is funny that I want to feature a dental clinic in Jakarta on my blog. If you live overseas, especially in a country where many people travel to Singapore for medical care including dental care, it is quite important to know a good dentist. It was not as expensive as going to Singapore (unless your insurance pays for it or something), but the cost was as high as in the States. Kids, make sure you take care of your teeth!!! When you have an issue in your mouth, that’s all you think about until the problem is fixed. I am so glad it was taken care of, but man, it was ‘ouch’ in our bank account. There goes my birthday present! I told my husband, I don’t need a birthday gift this year. I spent the money on my tooth. Sob, sob.

I posted some information about the dentist I went on a post dated June 2, 2011. (It is 3 days after this post.) Her name is Dr. Erwin Bakrie. You can see the information here.

笑われちゃうかもしれないのですが、週末の間に上の奥歯の歯が欠けました...虫歯になっていた事を気づかずに放っておいたのが仇に出ました。がーん。痛かったもん。幸い上の奥歯なので、誰にも見えなかったのは良かったけど。ジャカルタに、良い歯医者さんが居るって知っていました?友人に紹介され、今日歯医者さんに行ってきました。とっても良い歯医者だったので、金曜日に紹介しますね。ブログに歯医者紹介?なんて思うかもしれないのだけど、歯の治療のために結構シンガポールへ行ったり、日本に戻るまで待つ人が多い街なので、良い歯医者さんを知っているって大切です。日本人の歯科医もガンダリアシティー近くに居ると聞きました。その情報も手に入れたら教えますね。日本人歯科医が居てくれたら嬉しいですよね。ちなみに、今日の私の料金は目が飛び出る程高かったです。歯科保険に入っていないせいもありますが。日本の額に慣れていると、海外に出た時(私が知っているのはアメリカとインドネシアだけですが)の歯科料金はびっくりかもしれないです。夫に、今年は誕生日プレゼントは要らない、と伝えました。(涙)歯に使っちゃったから。とほほ。皆さん、歯は大切にしましょう。

私が利用して歯科医、エルウィン・バクリー先生の情報を2011年6月2日の記事に掲載しました。(この記事の4日後です。)情報を見る場合は、こちらをクリックして下さい。

    虫歯は、嫌ですよね。年を取るとお口の匂いも出てくるので、時々歯石を取りながら診てもらった方が良いですね。たるもと先生とは、長いお付き合いで…一年に一回は、点検を兼ねて診てもらいます。1月の終わりにも日本でやれば保険が効くのに、わざわざガンダリアまで訪ねて行ったんですよ。

      たるもと先生とおっしゃるんですね。じゃあ、次回の時はガンダリアまでたるもと先生に会いに行ってみようかな、という気になりました。お口の匂い...気になりますよね。定期的に歯科医へ行かなくてはならないですね。

    Oh sigh, talking about dentist, I too need to get it checked! I’ve been noticing slight ache from my molars whenever I eat sweets/candy/chocs :/

    Hope your tooth’s all good and healthy after this ouch checkup :)

      Yes. Now my tooth is great, but the expenditure was painful! :) I don’t know why, but until things start to go down, I tend to neglect issues that require going to a dentist.

    I totally know what you mean sweety! I had pasta done in Manila (not for cavity but more for vanity haha!) And I had it done by a prostho (one of my by best friend specializes in cosmetic dentistry) And because of my vigorous flossing, I chipped it. I couldn’t exactly ignore it because it was a front tooth and after having had braces and spending so much on my teeth already, I didn’t want a place for cavity to flourish. So I went to an ortho/cosmetic dentist here and the tinee-tiny repair cost me 50 usd! When the original capping in the Phils cost me only 20 usd! Ack. But yeah you have to go to a really good dentist/doctor here who speaks english because u don’t wanna mess up your teeth/health right? She was totally worth it though.. top of the line equip (even better than anything I’ve seen in the Phils), she was working on my teeth through some sort of microscope (whoa!) and she had 2 assistants! How much did your dentist charge u for your molar?

      Wow, thanks for sharing your story! Vigorous flossing… You’re funny! Dr. Erwina speaks English well. For my molar, the price I paid is mentioned in the post “Friday Finds ☆ Dental Arts Dr. Erwin Bakrie” dated on June 2, 2011. You can see it here. In the second paragraph!
