THREE FILLINGS

You know it’s a good weekend when you have to spend about an hour of your Saturday afternoon in the dentist’s chair. After bugging me for several months about some fillings they wanted done, I relented to my dentist’s office nagging. I had three fillings done at once which sounds pretty terrible except that two of them were quite minor. Only one required actual numbing and drilling. The other two were from grooves or a pit from tooth brushing. The dentist went in and just filled in the spots since there was no actual decay.

Still, no matter how minor a procedure, it’s never fun going to the dentist. Not only is it not fun, you also get to pay for the privilege of not having fun. The whole process cost just under $600 which luckily my dental coverage paid for about $500. Then once I got out of the chair, I had the pleasure of waiting for the local anesthesia to wear off. I hungry but I waited until most of the numbness went away because I didn’t want to chew my tongue off and not notice.

Well, let’s hope I don’t have to deal with that again for a while.
