Went for my appointment at 9am, they scrabbed them, then polished. My back teeth are wore right down because of chewing ice. I have a few cavities between my teeth, which 1 needs fixed. My soreness is from the wisdom teeth. I told him I don't have 3 thousand to get them out or go to Toronto to get it done. I will suffer and keep them in my head. I'm not wasting my time or money to go to the specialist like last year and he tell he won't do it because of the nerves I have a high risk of being paralized in the face after. $129 later, and I have to go back again in a few weeks.

I have to admit that the dentist is the one kind of doctor that I really have a great fear of. In fact, I am not even able to take my own children to the dentist because of the fact that I've been so traumatized by them. Now, that said, I know that I do need to have some major dental work done and for right now, the reason that I've not had it done at this point in time is because of the fact that I simply can't afford it right now.

I have not had my teeth cleaned in a couple of years. It cows too much. Even if I were to take out insurance, It wold be an extra $70 a year. and then I could not get my teeth capped until two years afar I joined. I am thinking of eating an electric toothbrush and doing it myself. I have several gaps and really should get denial impacts and tooth replacements. I grew up in a lace that had soft water, and that did not help. And I need the thousands of dollars to fix u the house.

Oh dentists are so expensive at your place. I have never gone to have my teeth polished. I put baking soda on my brush and do some scrubbing myself. I really can't afford to go to a dentist. I hope your teeth problem is sorted soon. Tooth ache is unbearable. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day ahead.

I haven't visited the doctor for a while now, and I suffered toothache a number of times now. The next time, I'll try to make a point to visit my dentist and get this freakin' teeth fixed. Those toothaches are a pain in the gums.
