Alright, so I'll admit it. I hate hate hate hate hate the dentist. So a few weeks ago, when my insurance changed at work, I figured, "Eh, I don't want dental insurance, I got my pesky wisdom teeth out, what else do I need?" and declined coverage to save myself (a now measly sounding) $7 a month. Well of course, last week, I started getting TERRIBLE toothaches. I can't eat ice cream, people!! So after a few days of dealing, I decided to call this "sedation dentist" I kept hearing about on the radio, figuring the only way they were going to get that drill near my face would be if I was unconscious. Today I had my consultation with the dentist. First, I had to take 2 buses, almost 2 hours worth of bus rides, to get there. I'd never been there before, never even to this part of town, so I was extra anxious. I get there without incident, and happen to sit right next to the fishtank without noticing. Now, most people find fishtanks soothing and relaxing, not this kid. I'm actually afraid of fish. Another one of my bizarre irrational fears I can't seem to do anything about. Fill out my paperwork, sit around reading Reader's Digest, and eventually get called back. Everything is sparkling clean, and they don't have their scary dentist devil tools out in the open, so I take a seat. The assistant hands me a remote control, and tells me I can put on whatever I want on the little LCD TV in my room. So I watch some Family Feud and chill. I'm not that worked up. She comes in and says she needs to do some x-rays. I'm like, "Ok, let's rock." I had to take out my earrings, and I felt kinda bad about that because they're gauged and therefore gross and smelly. X-rays are no problem. I get back in my chair and find Split Ends on TV. The dentist comes in, introduces himself and shakes my hand. I almost immediately bust into tears. Hysterical sobbing. Even I don't think I realized I would react that way. He was calm, and kind, and tried to calm me down. He looked in my mouth with the mirror, and started shooting off numbers to his assistant. Then he used a little camera and took pictures inside my mouth. Then I got more x-rays. And then he came back and laid it out for me. Every single one of my back teeth has a cavity. I need at least one root canal (that's the tooth that's been bothering me). I'll probably need a few crowns. I really didn't think it was this bad. He led me into another room, where I met with the financial lady. Essentially, it's going to cost about $6000 to fix everything. I don't have credit, I don't have insurance, and I don't have savings. Shit. So, now we attempt to find some place to do it for cheap. And hopefully not botch it. And hopefully put me to sleep, because I don't know if I can handle it.
Day 126/365 - At the Dentist's Office
Day 126/365 - At the Dentist's Office
I was a big, brave boy and went to the dentist's office this morning for the first time in 14 years. And she didn't even yell at me! She did 'tut, tut' a bit, though. I think I picked a good dentist. I always try to go to women doctors and dentists because I think they are less likely to be egotistical jerks than are men. I realize that's more than a bit sexist and stereotypical -- I'm sure women doctors are just as capable of being egotistical and jerky as their male counterparts -- but it generally works out. I picked my dentist (Dr. Sheila at the South Capitol Smile Center) because (a) she accepts my insurance, (b) she's Metro accessible, (c) she's a woman, and (d) her website said she was from the Midwest (and thus in my biased Midwestern opinion more likely to be nice). Her office is right across from Nationals Park so I got to walk by the ballpark this morning for the first time since the end of last season. It looked a bit sad sitting there all by its lonesome in the off-season. The results of my exam were pretty good. Apart from the tooth that is falling apart (see Day 117 for details), I have a couple small spots of decay, some filings that need replacing (given that I got them when I was 8, they've held up pretty well), and some wear due to grinding or clenching my teeth (for which I will shortly get stuck with wearing a mouth guard at night). The dentist was amazed. When I told her how long it had been she was expecting a disaster. Today was just the exam and cleaning. I have to go back early next month for the tune-up. Hopefully I'll be able to avoid a root canal on the falling apart tooth. Thank goodness for insurance. That covered my check-up and will knock two-thirds off the cost of my tune-up. Going to the dentist sure has changed. There's a flat screen monitor attached to the chair and your x-rays instantly show up on it, along with color photos of your teeth they take with this wand-like camera. It was kinda cool, actually.
