So, here it is December and I’ve been gainfully employed for six months with benefits. One of which is, free dental). Since I haven’t been to the dentist in FOREVER and my teeth are increasingly sensitive, I thought it was time to take advantage of those benefits. My supervisor referred me to a dentist she had been visiting for years. With that, I was all too excited to finally go in, find out what was wrong and what needed to be fix. Maybe it’s the hypochondriac in me. *kanye shrug*. So I go in for teeth cleaning and come out needing seven (maybe eight) fillings and four extractions. WTF! Now I was expecting that I’d need some fillings, but alladat AND some? I was shocked, excited, and hurt at the same time. I don’t consider myself a cocky person, but most people who know me know how I feel about my smile; my lips (so soft, shapely ) and my straight teeth (or so I thought). Within a series of visits, I get the fillings and all of my wisdom teeth taken out. I’m saving the wisdom teeth extractions for the New Year (and insurance purposes)! So now, I’m four fillings in and I totally understand now why they must numb it.
