just reminded me i need to book a dentist appt before i fly out. im on a low income certificate so its FREE on the NHS :D gonna make the most of it
I have been told by 2 dentists and a specialist over here that I need to have some of my wisdom teeth out despite the fact I don't experience any problems or pain with them.
Before we migrated I visited my UK dentist and he told me the Australian dentists were obsessed with taking out wisdom teeth and to seek his advice if I wanted to, if they suggested taking them out. My UK dentist has since retired but I emailed a copy of the xrays to my UK dental surgery and 2 denists looked at them and they said if they are not giving you any problems, leave them alone!!!
When I was 19 I was told I really needed my 2 upper wisdom teeth removing. I am now 44 and still have them. Both have fillings and not looking good...but until I am in agony I am not having them out. My dentist is cool with that. Personally I would rather go through labour again rather than having my teeth out.
My daughter had 2 teeth removed and 2 submerged teeth pulled down. It cost $650 for a day bed at Blackwood hospital alone. We got money off the surgeons fees as it was classed as dental.
Well to remove wisdom teeth it will cost around $300..it can be slightly more or less.
Mine cost me $145 to take out one wisdom tooth that's without insurance
I must be so lucky, I still have mine and never had any probs with them at all. Having them out sounds scary
i'm still full of wisdom...
