My Kingdom for a New Tooth...

Yup, 2 posts in the same day...must be big news...

The tooth with the jagged edges? Dare I even call it a tooth anymore if it's mostly, to quote the dentist, "A hollowed out pit of decay!" Well, maybe I exaggerate just a little.... whatever the case, I get to have my very first Endodontist appointment on Friday.

Did I mention I have NO INSURANCE?

At this point in the game I might be able to take pictures of things in Italy in lieu of actually buying them. Okay, maybe I exaggerate with that as well. I am nothing if not so paranoid that I have "emergency" money for just such a situation. Yes, enough even for a root canal, it would seem.

I don't so much hate the dentist as am super fearful of the whole practice...with good cause it would seem, as this new guy's favorite phrase about past procedures he could see having been done was, "how barbaric!" I didn't have the heart to describe just how my cuspid (canine tooth) went "missing."

Aside from the bomb that is ready to go off in my mouth though, I have a really good set of choppers.

(Sigh) When it rains, it pours.

Ugh. Suck. I used to have that rainy day money til we moved twice. But we finally have dental ins. for the first time in my life. Yup. I was six the last time I visited a dentist.
Good luck on Friday!
