Not knowing what sort of dental work you need, I bet that at least one thing you were told you need is a root canal, right? I say that because every single person I know that's been to the dentist in the last two years for anything other than a routine cleaning has been told they needed a root canal.
In over 30 years prior, I've only heard of like 2 people needing that done.
I already told them if they want to do a root canal to just pull the tooth out. So, they may try to talk me into a root canal again and I will leave with one less tooth - aside from all the other crap they have to do to fix my face.
Friday morning looming...
The next time Mom asks me why I have 2 different tattoos with teeth on them, I'm going to tell her they were premonitory.
Thanks again everyone - classified is up for another month for those who have asked me about it.
I had parents that didn't make me brush my teeth as a kid, but I did every once in a while on my own until I got older and realized my teeth were screwed. I had to have 3 molars pulled, and I did that the same time as having all 4 wisdom teeth taken out! So the reason (at least for me) that my current dentist wants to do root canals is that I'm literally starting to run out of molars to chew on. I had one root canal a month ago on a front canine, and have another one this month on another molar - horray!
my wife got her root canal the old fashined way...no anesthesia. guess they didn't have enough cigarettes to trade. she was just kid and didn't know better so she just took it.
now I feel bad for hotmetalbathroomcouch.
luckily, I have been paying for my own insurance (since I haven't had a job that offers it, and I've had health issues in the past that necessitate my doing so).
It's a trip that when the hospital bills me, they show the costs before and after insurance kicks in.
If I hadn't been insured, I'd be paying off a $200,000 bill for the rest of my life.
a fucking gnarly gross-looking one.
If youre getting Icey grills theres got to be some correlation to the brown recluse bite...perhaps a gold or diamond shaped spider on a cap???
I feel real fortunate to have the health ins I have..however crappy it may be... went w/o for yrs. It was hard living cause Ive got bad ulcers& shiz
