整牙日记 - 前期准备(检查牙齿和矫正牙医的寻找)

6:56:00 AM

我是Cornell学生,住在Collegetown Terrace. 在2016年决定秋季开始在附近找医生矫正牙齿。

我具体牙齿情况如下:
我16岁的时候拔了4颗牙齿,然后矫正牙齿,但是后来没有带retainer, 所以牙齿又不整齐了。

我网上寻找整牙的医生,评价最高的是John Duthie 和Robert Baker。
由于我学生没有牙齿保险,所以全部自费。两家的医生都非常nice。 建议如果有问题就尽量问,如果医生连这点时间都不愿意给你,就尽早离开。因为他们不称职。

这家是建议我用brace,不要带Invisalign。需要带18个月。这家诊所有给我拍x-ray照片,然后告诉我brace比较适合我。
要自己记录价钱,助理说价钱,我自己记录。

价钱是:

Invisalign $5980 (首付$1500, 然后每个月付$250, 付>18个月)
Clear Brace: $5680 (首付$1500, 然后每个月付$250,付18个月)只有上排是clear brace,下排钢brace. 如果下排也要做clear brace 多加$250)

建议可以买accedeDent($900), 可以使带牙套的时间缩短一倍)
医生建议我带牙套前要先去检查牙齿有无蛀牙。

没有拍任何X-RAY照片,医生看我牙齿和听我说我以前做过矫正,然后建议我用Invisalign。需要带12-18个月。他说这个方便,容易清理,也比较美观。还说这2个是一样的效果,brace并不会比Invisalign效果更好,这个只是世人错误的观点,现在科技发展,Invisalign的技术也比以前好多了。

助理会给你一张详细的价钱单,签名,不需要自己做笔记。

价钱: 
Invisalign $5955 (首付$2500, 然后每个月付$200, 付12-18个月)
Clear Brace: $5855 (首付$1900, 然后每个月付$200,付18-24个月)只有上排是clear brace,下排钢brace
我问需要先去检查牙齿吗,医生说做brace才需要,invisalign不需要。




然后我去Fall Creek Family Dentistry检查牙齿

The cleaning: $63.00
The NP exam: $40.00
Bitewing x-rays: $47.00
Crown: $900


他们发现我有个蛀牙,补牙(white filling, $135, mental $95)
最后一个wisdom tooth is half missing需要做crown ($900)
还建议我做per scaling and root planing ($134.00 per quad, $536 for 4 of them, and I did pay $268*2 = $536)I was suggested to do scaling and root planing due to my pocket depths and bone loss.

Total: $536+$900+$135+$87 = $1658

心得:

On the first time, the hygienist that I saw is Ashley. She was a very nice woman. I like her a lot. Highly recommend. She was one of the reasons that I kept choosing this dentistry. She suggested me use REACH waxed floss and mouthwash with fluoride every night.

On the second time, the doctor that filled my teeth was Dr. Kapur and her assistant's name is Jamie.. She was very cold and I felt like I owned her money...
