Taking care of me
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
OK so here is the deal... I've been to the dentist on and off for years, for the last 8-10 YEARS I have not seen a dentist. I was keeping up with maintenance etc, in fact the hygienist said that my teeth were in pretty good shape for not having been to a dentist in so long. They NEVER hurt, I had more important things to do, raising 4 boys alone, replacing all my doors and windows in this very old house yada yada...... I decided that this was the year that I was going to get back to the dentist.
So I did some research, as I wanted a larger practice in case I had to carry a balance etc. I went met the dentist for initial assessment, I had over 6 grand in dental! 10 cavities mostly older fillings that needed to be replaced and a total of 6 crowns. Got one already done, replacing an older one that had a cavity under it.
Today I spent 3 hours in the chair getting all the rest of the fillings done! I was getting to the end of my treatment plan year money wise. figured I'd have to wait til next year to finish with the crowns, I got news today that a supplemental dental plan I was carrying will let me switch from the HMO to a PPO that this dentist will allow! SO I can get more done this year! I'm very happy!
I have filling in 2 of my front teeth that are very Tea stained so I will be very happy to be able to do teeth smiles again! And no more silver fillings they are all gone with porcelain fillings... a good day! Thank you Lord!
