...remember that tooth I broke
Friday, June 06, 2014
Just venting here...
Yesterday, while eating popcorn [BIG HUGE mistake] the other back half of the same tooth broke off [former Blog of it]. Obviously, I never got the crown the dentist suggested for $1700. However, I still have the front of that tooth. So, this tooth is a Premolar and now looks and feels like an Incisor. No pain at all. No dental insurance, since retirement.
A friend of mine had one of her back teeth pulled. She didn't want a root canal & crown. However, she is 15 yrs. older than I. Debating that option...to just let the tooth be gone for good.
Going to also look into the Military Base north of us [we're in Alaska] and see if they will work on it. It would be cheaper to fly there & have them fix it for free than pay this dentist a bazillion dollars for one little tooth. Husband has to go there for an appointment anyway within the next month.
Being very particular of what I eat, in the meantime, this will help to keep calories down.
