My dental odyssey
Hubby did the research for me. I was too scared to even think about it too much. He ended up finding this great dentist who I have really come to like and trust. She understands my fear and really works with me on it. She's definitely more expensive than your average dentist, but she has really helped me. I even get to watch DVDs while they work on me. That's my favorite part!
There is a reason I brought this up. I'm kinda celebrating today. Two years of receiving multiple dental surgeries, 2 bridges and 3 dental implants. Dealing with painful floating bone fragments and nightguards and more novocaine shots than I care to remember. Today my odyssey has almost been finished and I can move on to 6 month checkups. I just have a small follow-up appointment in December. I have spent so much money on my mouth these last 2 years. Dental is not offered through our health insurance. I could have bought a really nice car for the amount of money I've had to spend on my teeth the last few years. Just one question...why is dental not covered in most health plans anymore?
