Doing It the Hard Way Today

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

I'm definitely watching my food intake the hard way today. I sat in the dentist's chair for three hours. A bridge had to be removed because I had some decay on one of the teeth. As the dentist was trying to clean it out, the tooth just started breaking off. My own fault - I knew it had to be done for about a year, but didn't have any dental insurance until now. If the tooth could have been saved, a new bridge would be put on. Now I am looking at a crown on the tooth we could save, pulling the tooth that couldn't, and getting a partial. But this did bring the total cost from over $1100 to a little over $400. I got the Novocain shot at 10 am. It's now 4 pm and it's still numb, so I am afraid to eat anything.
