On April 21th I had my second opinion appointment at an orthodontist. After arriving in the ortho office I waited in the waiting room. I had to wait for more than 45 minutes! (You have to know I had to do this appointment during my working hours.) Each and every other patient was allowed to get in first 😦 That way my appointment already started disappointing 😦
Finally the doctor picked me up and asked me to get into the chair: “So, tell me what can I do for you?”. The ortho-office is located in the same office as my general dentist. So I was hoping she knew about my situation. Or at least she got informed by my dentist. NOT. That was the second disappointment. I had to explain everything from A to Z (again). About the front tooth, the implant and the braces. She inspected my teeth in detail and concluded… “Oh, you don’t need braces! Just go for the implant and everything will be fine! Hopefully you can keep your front tooth and no implant is needed!”. A 14 minute examination to conclude I don’t need braces. This outcome contradicts (First orthodontist appointment) 100% with the conclusion of the other orthodontist (the one at my periodontist office). So that’s the 3rd disappointment. Oh and she invoiced 45 € for a 14 minute examination 😦
Now I’m totally confused. I have to wait now for my appointment at my periodontist on May 16th. Hopefully he can clarify what to do. Strange that 2 orthodontists have 100% different conclusions. Isn’t it? In one way this makes me nervous because I don’t know what option will be the best?
But it gives me hope too. Because this might mean I DON’T need to start braces treatment! And of course THAT would be great news! But what about the implant? Time will tell…
