Okay... I pretended to be an adult this morning and called my dentist who I only see if I have a problem. I have a front tooth that I have wanted to get crowned for over three years now, but the pain from the needles in my mouth and the $1,100 price tage have kept me at bay. But, I figured I should get this done now, before the hopeful transplant next month.
I was in the office at 3:30pm, had the work done and then decided to get a cleaning (hadn't had one in 3.5 years.) The hygenist (who was not aware that I am hoping for a transplant next month) told me that I "have great gums". Thank you, Lord... Perhaps I will be able to sleep tonight knowing I am not in for any painful dental treatments in order to get clearance.
