thank goodness it is Friday…

had things on early three mornings in a row… today it was the dentist…

I do not like visiting the dentist, but I have gone every three to six months for the last 35 years… I had a few very bad experiences in my early twenties and made the decision to face my fear of dentists and be sure to get regular check-ups so I wouldn’t have to deal with any big issues…

lucky for me, my teeth are good, so I haven’t had too many problems…

unlike George… I think his teeth were made of marshmallow… he had at least two or three fillings in each of the teeth he had left… we do think we sent his dentist on a number of vacations over the years…

my insurance coverage from George’s work ran out in March and the new plan I was finally able to get doesn’t include dental… mainly because it was going to cost an additional hundred dollars a month and it seemed more sensible to just pay for my check-ups…

was quite worried that my front tooth might need a crown so was very happy to hear that the problem was staining from tea… hurray:-)…

unfortunately she did find a small cavity so I have to go back in a couple of weeks… I know she isn’t going to hurt me, but I will still be grasping the arms of the chair through the entire procedure…

have been wearing a mouth guard for a few years and will continue to, as it helps keep my teeth from grinding and wearing down the enamel…
