I have been to CR now a couple of times. I know some people in the Santa Teresa/ Mal Pais area. But, naturally I would most likely have any of this done in San Jose. I just have never had to deal with anything more than a rental car agency there, nevermind a medical professional.
I was brushing and a portion of one of my wisdom teeth broke away and there is decay there, and also in the 2 other wisdom teeth which are I think are only partially broken through or impacted. I haven't been to the dentist in quite a while and further was told that I would additionally need 2 crowns and about 11 fillings. I never knew I was in such bad shape.
Now, here in the US the said $1600 for the extraction of all 4 wisdom teeth, including general anesthesia nite-nite time. I am not sure what the extractions would cost in CR and actually don't quite know if I am comfortable with that procedure there, general and all.
The crowns and fillings might be a good option to have done in CR though. Here, the crowns are $820 a piece and the fillings are about $140. In CR the crowns are about $400 each and the fillings are about $100. Am I right about this? If so, there's not much saving on the fillings to fly down there about, but the total cost of the crowns here is $1640 and in CR $800. And that's fairly motivating.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any general recommendations about having this done, or if it is advisable to do so.
I would also appreciate anyone who has experience with this to recommend to me a good dentist. That's difficult to do online. I have been looking at Dentavac. It seems to be a nice, modern facility.
