Price of teeth alignment in PP

Postby jackrossi » Tue Sep 12, 2017 3:56 pm

Does anyone know how much does it cost to fix misaligned teeth with braces or similar on a young adult here in PP at a decent clinic? I got prices ranging from 2.000 to 5.000$ from a couple of phone calls, sounds a bit expensive considering that the monthly salary of a dentist here is about 400$ yet the service pricing is just like in the West.

I don't think you can get a proper quote for dental care by calling.

2k for the 18 month process is around the price I heard from someone who had braces at roomchang, but this was some time ago.

18 months to align some teeth? You could make 2 humans in that time.

If those humans had wonky teeth you'd be back to square one.

Maybe kids (teeth wise) are quicker? Not sure. Never had them myself.

A friend spent at least 12 months of his teen years with a massive steel face mesh, but got impatient and whinged to his parents to have them taken off early. Within 6 months, his teeth had reverted to their original 3-row wonky shark setup. At least $10k of work down the drain.

You could ask lambo to knock them to the other side for you. He'd probably do it for free.

It's $300 in David, Panama -- so if you watch the airfares and get a good one, it could literally be cheaper to fly there, get braces put on, and fly back.

Yeah, fly from Phnom Penh to Panama for the fitting, then fly back and forth few weeks when it needs adjustment. That'll save you a fortune. :roll:

Did she and the sister(s?) start working again? I was there a couple of years ago and had my teeth looked at by a bloke who said there wasn't anything to fix because my teeth were better than his. I wasn't very impressed with the bushman's abilities and haven't returned since.
