Last visit for now = very crooked smile from upper right side being numb. Four visits, eight teeth addressed. One last tooth which can wait for a while as we give my mouth and teeth a break for a bit. Incredibly happy and blessed that my teeth have finally gotten the care they have needed for so many years.

Home from dentist trip number three. No numb face this time as we just did a wee bite adjustment (was having discomfort last week). Section number 3, lower left side, happens next Wednesday.

First two teeth down = crooked smile, left side of face numb. I’ve never been more thrilled about dentist visits! In and out in less than an hour and I didn’t feel anything (pain, that is). Still can’t feel anything! Ha! Next two getting addressed next Monday.
After about 13 years of not being in a financial position to address my teeth; I am damn well pleased for myself too!! Hallelujah!!! Love got me through …
I know first hand why and how teeth get neglected. For those that have Medicaid, it only pays for teeth to be extracted. That’s it. Fu**ing ridiculous! If I had to choose between dental and health insurance, I’d choose dental. I’m extremely grateful that after about 13 years of discomfort, I found a dentist I like, and that I’m finally able to afford having the work done. Such a relief …
