So, when I got my dental insurance for the first time since 2002, I got to go in and get my teeth checked. FOURTEEN YEARS of no dental care, just desperate brushing. At the time, they flagged a ridiculous number of problem areas but only focused on the badly cracked tooth and three large cavities I had, and that was STILL misery.
I went in this Wednesday and… now they want to address the things they passed over last year.
19 of them.
This is horrifying. Most of them are between two teeth so count as two – one on each tooth where they touch. But still, this is going to be three appointments at least and a ridiculous amount of money because I have NO IDEA how many my new dental insurance will cover.
So I’m cringing.
My appointment is in the second week of January, so there’s plenty of time for me to stress about it!
What’s the longest you were forced to go without dental care? How bad was the fall out? Inquiring minds want to know!
