The Dentist

The last time I went to the dentist was when I was pregnant with my son three years ago.  Three weeks ago I went for a checkup.  They recommended $1400 worth of work and that's the part my insurance doesn't cover.  Ha! It's ridiculous, but I did it because if I wait my teeth could get worse and more expensive.

So last week I had my right side done and today my left side.  A total of 10 fillings, a cleaning, antibiotic packing, and irrigation (whatever that is) and I am fixed.  It was so awkward sitting there while the dentist and technician worked on my mouth.  I forget to hold my mouth open after a while and they have to remind me.  They have this suction thing that stays in and hooks on the side of my mouth, along with the one the technician is holding.  Then there's the drill! Arrgh, I hate it!

I get to go back in 6 months, I can't wait.
