tldr I have a chipped molar and my dentist recommended that I have a root canal and then braces. I just wanted a tooth extraction because I don’t want to deal with the hassle of returning to the dentist/ortho during the pandemic. Should I listen to her?
So I have a chipped molar due to bad bite and (maybe bad hygiene ) and it’s starting to hurt Went to the dentist and she recommended a root canal tapos pa-braces ko na daw to fix my bite. I just wanted to have it extracted and she said it’s possible but that it will cost me more in the long run when I finally do get braces.
The thing, ayoko sana magpabraces pa since that would entail multiple visits to the dentist in the following months. Also, I don’t think I want to deal with the pain during the pandemic.
Also, I think the rates they’re offering are rather expensive?
Root canal option
These are for metal braces by the way. Cost aside, is it worth the risk to get braces during this pandemic?
I personally don’t want to but I’m interested on what you think (especially people who already have braces or got them during this pandemic ). Thanks!
I do think I should get braces eventually to fix my bite and not ruin my other teeth. I’m just not sure I should get them now. Having my molar extracted now might cost me more in the long run but I can deal with that (I think).
