Cost of my oral surgery

For my oral surgery, I had 4 extractions plus the uncovering of an adult canine (just like you!) The total of my surgery was 1,390. I am not sure how much just the uncovering is... but I know each extraction was $110. So, I am guessing 1,390 (total cost)- 440 (4extractions)= cost of anesthesia + unc...

But now I just dread them because it means, soft foods, breaking food in tiny pieces, and spending an h...

BlahBlah

BlahBlah, you are really making me angry! Just be mature and state what about linguals has been particularly challenging for you. It would help people very much! Your discouraging posts had me in tears the day after i got my linguals because I thought I had made a big mistake. On the contrary, i lov...

Hi, 22 years old here- just got my ibraces put on (yay)! They are the kind that go on the back of your teeth. I found out I had an impacted canine when I was 14 also. Being 14, and not wanting braces- I told my mom "just leave it alone". At 21- I was told I couldn't leave my baby tooth there forever...
