Remember back in 2013 when the dentist told me I needed dentures? And then when I heard it was approximately $20,000 for said items + pain and ick? I ran away as fast as I could from that.
Fast forward 3+ years later (and nary a dentist visit in the interim. I know. Shutup.). It’s time, I’m thinking. One tooth that was previously whole is no longer that. My jaw line, which isn’t fab on a good day, has gotten worse and I really hate seeing my teeth in videos.
I’ve got a few things to get through this summer (Ignite in a couple weeks, various trips (Seattle and Utah in September)) but after that, I think I’m going to get moving on this. Much as I hate the thought of it all, it’s time. Nothing in this situation gets better by waiting.
I found a dentist’s office in Annapolis that I think I’ll look into and get things rolling so that I’ll have a good sense of what $$ is needed for it come Oct / November.
On the bright side, it will be nice to smile. I’ve been very, very self-conscious of that for a long time. (Forever, it seems.)
