Why Not Get A Second Opinion?
As a child I had braces…Not because of crooked teeth but because I had TMJ. As I grew older, my teeth shifted on the bottom. I became extremly annoyed that my parents paid soooo much money and I was going to need them fixed again!!!
One day my dentist suggested that I really needed to fix them! To be honest, I did not really trust it. I thought it was more cosmetic and not really something I NEEDED to do now. He suggested it was for healtheir teeth later on and that it would be a better choice to do it now.
So I went out and got my second opinion … He was right, not trying to trick me into anything and the best part was that he showed me all options and prices. Which I compared to the other dentist. I had no idea that I am not in the NORM for asking for a second opinion?
I assumed everyone did this!! I mean why wouldn’t you get a second opinion?
