Today was the end of my tooth debacle, hopefully. I hadn’t been to the dentist in a really long time so I promised Matt that I would go this year. In January, I had my first cleaning appointment in an embarrassingly long time. That turned into fillings, which turned into a root canal, which turned into a temporary crown, which led to my permanent crown today. The lesson? Regular cleanings would have prevented the $1200 cost of this whole situation so I’ve already scheduled my next cleaning for July and found a list of food and drink that are best for my teeth (thank you, WebMD!).
The positive part of today’s appointment is that I was in and out within 20 minutes… after the other appointments, I didn’t expect it to be a simple “pop the crown on the tooth” procedure. Now I have a very pretty and very real looking crown on my tooth! 🙂
I decided to take advantage of my unexpected free-time and make an impromptu Sam’s Club visit. Last time we were there, we bought a 20 year supply of pickles. I told myself I wouldn’t engage in any such craziness this time. Luckily, I didn’t — but I WILL be eating a lot of carrots and oranges over the next week. This is one of delicious-looking oranges:
