Dentist in Russia…

dentistYesterday Svetochka and I went to the dentist…

Sveta has to get a cap on a cracked tooth. The tooth was done a year or so ago and it finished cracking, not able to be filled or repaired easily again. I lost a cap about two weeks ago and need a new one for myself…

I go this Sunday and in an hour they will make a cap in office and replace the cap I swallowed in the village. Tooth cap…

It will cost me about 5000 rubles. It is an acrylic cap like the other one and is cheap for this poor American living in Russia. The other one was still good, I just swallowed it, while taking my pills one night and never found it again… 🙁

That is about $75 for you conversion needy…

Try that for cost and I get it done in one hour on Sunday and that makes me happy. They will 3D print a new cap and off I go. Also x-rays for checking my tooth was only about 150 rubles. That is $2.20 if you need to know…

You should stop and think about medical costs in America!

I pay full price for my dental work, consultation was free and I really like the dentist. He did not argue about having a acrylic cap as most dentist only like high dollar items. They know arguing with this American goes nowhere…

Svetochka will get a zirconium cap at my request. I want her to have the best and she is definitely worth it. It costs more, not sure how much, but more. I am rough on everything and acrylic matches what my life style is. I learned a long time ago, after several other failures in materials, including gold crowns, that acrylic is the only way for me. I can replace a cap every three years, if need be and still come out ahead. Acrylic is the only substance that melds with me appropriately. It also holds up to almost anything I throw at it, well except swallowing it and the cost makes trying to recover a swallowed crown worth ignoring such a happening… 😉

Most work Sveta has done is free in Russia, she is a Russian you know and a citizen. I wish I was a citizen and had the free medical care available to her. I think she will pay for this crown though, as my dentist is private, but so good that it is worth it…

I have talked about dental care in the past in Russia, as I have talked about my healthcare in general. Nothing but satisfied is how I have been and nothing but responsible pricing has ever been tossed my way. But when I compare to the farce that I dealt with in America, you should understand why it is so good here in Russia…

PS: Sveta did say that she thought her price was cheap and she was very happy with my dentist. I am glad for she has needed to get this done for awhile. When Svetochka is happy then my life is happy… 😉
