T = Teeth
Before I start, I offer my apologies for falling behind. I was out of town for the Easter weekend, and it just wasn't feasible to make Saturday's post – or today's either. So, I'll get one (or both) done now, and be caught back up by the time this is over with.
You see, I saw the dentist last week, and we had a talk about my teeth. I've had some issues for the past few years, and for a long time it was a mystery problem. Then the dentist I had been seeing left the practice, and I got a new dentist.
Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the fact that I went through orthodontics in junior high. Had braces, retainers, headgear, etc. The whole nine yards – and then some. I really don't wanna do that again. But, it's worth keeping my teeth in my mouth longer.
Main problem (which the dentist acknowledged) is that it's going to be very expensive. His figure was around $6,000. Yes, that is correct. Six THOUSAND dollars. Just for me. And I have three children, at least two of which will need their teeth fixed, too. Lord help us! We do have dental insurance, although it covers very little. But I suppose every little bit will help.
It'll be worth it.
I'm too young for false teeth!
