Once upon a time when I was 10, my brother accidentally threw a rock that accidentally hit me in the mouth, knocking out two of my teeth and fracturing another. Fast-forward 11 years, still having teeth problems. Today I had my front tooth pulled that has been severely infected for over two years now (financial strain ftl) and a bone-graph done (without anesthesia, because I am a MAN). The whole ordeal took 45 minutes. Insurance refuses to cover any of it because it happened to long ago, according to them. So I am having to pay it solely on my own, which is about $4,000 total to finish fixing my teeth. It really has me bummed out sometimes when I think about it all. Right now I'm without a front tooth and will be so for the next week until they fashion me a 'flipper' (retainer type deal). Anyone else have some dental stories they wish to share?
