I went to the dentist this morning. I got my teeth cleaned and x-rays taken and a check up. The cleaning was awful! Between the sharp pointy torture device scraping my gums and making that horrific noise (like fingernails on a chalkboard *shiver*), I’m happy to be out of there!

I still have lots of work to be done. A filling fell out of a cavity and needs to be replaced. Doc thinks there’s an abscess under one of my teeth *shiver*. I suppose I shouldn’t have taken 3 years off of dental care. Drat!

But besides the cleaning, no work was done. I go back in about 3 weeks to get started on the work.

They are a good dental place. Our insurance is great. One day I’ll be able to smile big again.

It has been over 3 years since I’ve been to the dentist. The last time I went, I was in the middle of getting major work done on my teeth. I still have lots of work that needs to be done. We have awesome insurance – I didn’t have to pay a penny, but in the middle of the work, I got a call from the office telling me that I reached the dollar amount for the year. Well, I chickened out and haven’t been back, not to mention that I didn’t have a vehicle for a little while during that period.

Well, one of my fillings has come out and I’ve been experiencing pain in my tooth on the lower right side. Scott got me their number and I called to make an appointment. I’m nervous since I haven’t been in in a while, but they are nice and maybe I’ll be able to flash a full smile again soon.
