When getting a second dental opinion how do you know which dentist is correct?
So here is the story. Last year I was told by the dentist at the time that I needed to have a filling done on one tooth and to have a deep cleaning. So wanting to make sure I got a second dental opinion from a different dentist. That dentist said that I do not need a filling or a deep cleaning. Okay so I when to him for just the regular cleaning he said I needed.
Six mouths later he says now I do need to have a filling and a deep cleaning. He gave me a cost that was much higher then the dentist that I when to before him. This bother me so I when to another dentist for a second opinion. That dentist told me that I do not need a deep cleaning and that I do have a very small cavity on my tooth but it was too small to worry about doing a filling on yet. When different dentist tell you different things how do you know which one is telling you the truth. I do not want to feel like I got bate and switched. Which is how I am feeling. They tell me what I want to hear the first time then try to get me to do all this expensive dental work the second time I go. What is up with that?
