It's been a busy week for me so far... vet appointment, shopping, dental appointment, hair colored.... but it has been a good week. I did find out I need about $700 worth of dental work. I have broken/chipped four lower front teeth in the past few weeks. I am a clincher and the dentist thinks a bite guard may help to protect my teeth. I am a little skeptical, as I tend to think my teeth are just getting weaker with age... but I guess I'll give it a try. If it works, it'll save me $100-$150 everytime I break a tooth. I no longer have dental insurance since I started working part time, so of course, now my teeth are going to start costing me lots of money. :o(
I will do whatever I can to save my teeth... I do not want to wear dentures. Working in a nursing home, we have lots of patients without teeth... some wear dentures, most don't. I'm always amazed when we get patients who still have all their natural teeth. That's my goal... to keep those teeth so that I can amaze the nurses when I am admitted to the nursing home.
