Another root canal

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

Geez, I've had a toothache lately and went to the dentist this morning. I need another root canal. This is almost a little embarrassing to admit, but I have had seven root canals already. By the time I'm 40 I won't have any real teeth left!!! By February 2006 I had already spent $5000 out of my own pocket (we're talking after insurance coverage...which by the way is only a lame $1500). So I have scheduled an appointment with my endodontist tomorrow. Thankfully I have a really good doctor. She makes it painless and is relatively fast (considering my first root canal took 6 hours at some awful dentist...thanks mom). Wish me luck. I just wish I could wait until the new year when my insurance is full again. Dang it.
