Braces (2)

I blogged bout this last year. That time, I was considering of whether to go or not? Lots of people told me it’s going to be VERY PAINFUL. That’s why I didn’t wanna do.

But after much consideration, I’ve decided to go for it. And the following are the recommended dentals by friends.

Then Dental Surgery Dr
No. 473, 1st Floor, Jln Nanas, 93400 Kuching, Sarawak
Tel: 082-417722
(According to my friend, the dentist there is soft spoken. A very nice person.)

Chen Dental Specialist
No. 50, 1st Floor, Hock Kui Commercial Centre, Jln Tun Ahmad Zaidi Adruce, 93000 Kuching, Sarawak
Tel: 082-233381
(The transparent braces cost the same price as Chong’s for the normal type of braces)

Klinik Chong Dental & Orthodontic
No. 480, 1st Floor, Jln Rubber, 93400 Kuching, Sarawak
Tel: 082-422345
(3 friends have been there. So far so good lor.. And the good thing is that, instalment payment service is available.. Good hor)

I called.. The receptionist told me that I’m too old for this the doctor prefers students T.T , which also mean I’m old lar T.T

Which one should I choose hor?

    waaaaah..me this yr too but dunno when. after RWMF maybe ‘cos mine only takes for 1 yr & I dun know whether I’ll be continuing my studies sumwhere or not this yr. The doctor in Tanah Puteh works part time sumwhere at Tabuan Laru there.

    maybe you shud meet the doctor and ask how much is the cost for your soon to be braces.

    Rose says: Owh.. Tabuan Laru’s which clinic? Any idea? Hehehe.. maybe I should ask around first before decide where to go :D

    I wanted to get braces too.. But itu loktor cakiap saya punya jaw masih muda. Wisdom tooth pun takde. So knot lor..

    “clement : go to gahmen 1~ free”
    I went tanah puteh and was told that I need to queue up till my turn, in which will be 1yr later. @@”

    Somemore, loktor say knot do yet.. So, i guess, I’ll opt for crowning. =X which takes days but not years.

    Rose says: Wah.. Masih muda ah? So good.. How come no wisdom tooth de? Bro went to gahmen 1 but they told him over 18 years old cannot liao T.T that’s why I opt for private de.. Na khaaa.. What is crowning? how come take days only?

    Rose says: I think they pretend de. Cos once you’ve reached 18 years old.. Then they tell you cannot do liao. :( Have to go private lor like that..

    ya…the gahmen (at first i dun know wut gahmen is, but i kept saying it again n again in my mind and now i know it’s govt!) has an age limit, until 18/19 only. last time mine (i was 19 at that time) was under tanah puteh, but at that time i went to kk, so the doc refer me to the gahmen dentist there but it was so far from my campus, and thats y i cant get my braces done. if not, mmg cantik oledi my gigi. hahaha..

    i still keep the xray n the teeth mould, so now i know that the doc in tanah puteh works part time in tbn laru, so i shud go back to him. let me double check with emma again cos her sis is doing her braces there.

    Rose says: Gahmen *LOL* And and.. Thanks for helping to check.. If it’s cheaper then I should go for it then.. Instead of doing for 3.5k to 4k o_O

    hurm… it is painful to do braces, but as far as i know, there’s no limit to do braces. as long u have enuff money. M looking forward to put mine too and i’m 29 this year.. so as long u hav a good dentist it should be occay.!!!!

    Rose says: Hamz, where are you going to do the braces?

    [Reply]

  • http://annna.net ultranana

    crowning is teeth planting. They take the old ones out, put in new ones. Pricey but faster & better as braces will hurt ur gum & ur teeth.

    Rose says: o_O Teeth planting T.T Can feel the pain right away. Are you going to do this, Na? O_O

    does it really hurt you when dr.chen extracteed ur tooth?coz im gonna do it at the end of this may.im scared though.haha

    ahlost Reply:

    [faezah]
    you won’t feel anything during the extraction cos the dentist will inject some medicine before he extracts. don’t worry. you’ll only feel the missing tooth after the extraction. no pain :)

    hi. this morning i went to poliklinik jln masjid & the dental laugh at me because i hv tooth decay everywhere & she told me to not do braces. i was disappointed & cry all the way back home. im not saying im smarter or what, but ive google & youtubing my problem, my problem is that im underbite, crossbite & openbite. im worried because it affects my speech, how i eat & my face profile. but then she still say no, plus im 20 yo & still studying. haizz money is the 2nd problem. *justsharing*

    btw, may i ask, if u use installment at private then how much do u need to pay, do u need to pay like hundreds per month, or during appointment to pay & how much. thank you :)

    [Reply]

    ahlost Reply:

    [Lala]
    Oh.. Normally poliklinik will only help those who are still studying in primary and secondary school to do. The chances of you going to poliklinik to ask them do braces is totally zero unless you know someone who works in there to help you arrange.. else, private dental clinic is the best solution for you.

    As for instalments, normally private clinic will allow you to make downpayment and partial payments after that.. depends on your negotiation with the clinic. Hope this little info helps .. and do cheer up alright :)

    sorry for the late reply. Glad that you’ve made your decision to go braces. How was your appointment? I’m not sure bout the consultation fee cos I wasn’t being charged that when I visited Dr Chen :)

    Hi has anyone been to Chen Dental for braces? How is the process? is the doctor good in terms of skill?

    [Reply]

    ahlost Reply:

    @disqus_brUefATbLo:disqus : I went to Chen Dental for my braces. You need to visit the dentist in order to know the condition of your teeth and the dentist will explain in detail based on your teeth condition because everyone’s condition is different.

    For mine, the dentist extracted 4 teeth because he continue with the braces installation.

    Just consult the dentist and you will get your answer. he’s a friendly guy. So no worries ;)
