Well, apparently life costs money. LOL. My teeth have finally given out. Last friday I had a root canal...well part one. on the 15th i go in to finish it. My insurance SHOULD cover a lot of it. Then...God, I have to have oral surgery. I need to have my 3 wisdom teeth removed. I'm hoping I can be put under and not just have novicaine. I'm on Codine right now lol. So I'll probably be spending $1000 of my own money or more to have the surgery. yea, it sucks, but you cannot go into the dentist with the idea of not spending much money lol. I maybe spending $2000 of my own money overall, but you know'll be cheaper int eh long run. Bad teeth can cause strokes, diabites, preterm labor and low weight babies. Here's my reasoning: If my kids are born early, I'll be spending $10,000+ to have them in the NICU and have special care. It's cheaper to Spend $2000 now and curb the chances of that happening. Sounds reasonable to me lol. im actually fine with the money thing...dont have it, but It needs to be done. Come june, hopefully, i'll be out of pain.

So, I had a belt replaced in my car by a family ffriend. He said I needed 4 new brakes and My altinator would be going soon. He said he could changfe all 5 for $300! That is wicked cheap and I need to do it, but my teeth...ugh, money. Maybe I need to start playing the lottery.

So, I will be poor for awhile. don't expect much from me lol

Don't even ask me to total up how much $$$$ I've spent on my teeth in the past decade. I'm about to get my 6th or 7th crown, and I've had one extraction and one root canal.

They should put you under for 3 extractions, especially if they're impacted. It doesn't take too long for them to pull them, though. You need really good drugs afterwards to deal with it.
