I am in a temporary full time position which includes 100% dental coverage so I am getting all my dental work done while I can.

I have gone (no joke) 5 times in two weeks.

first was cleaning and xray
second was replacing fillings on one side
third was replacing fillings on other side
fourth was a quick fix of my bite from a filling that was too high up
fifth was a quick impression for a night guard / mouth guard because I apparently grind / clench my teeth
sixth is tomorrow and is an appointment with the oral surgeon for a consult
then i book my surgery to FINALLY remove my wisdom teeth which have bugged me for years but I didn't have coverage so I didn't want to pay for the surgery....

ALSO my daughter had a cleaning and a filling so 7 times at the dental office in two weeks ha ha

thank god i have amazing coverage right now!

I am scared for the surgery to be honest. I will be put under and I assume they will take all out at once.... I am a wimp - I think I have a high pain tolerance, i have tattoos, i gave birth without ANY drugs (against my will trust me i begged for drugs!) but besides that I really am a pain wimp!

I am hoping to book it Easter weekend so i have extra days to recover without missing work, though if I have to miss then I have to miss but I actually love my job so I'd rather work, plus i may not have many paid sick days left because I get so sick for so long all the time - boo hiss!

Anyways - the dentists know me and love me and I don't mind them even though they inflict pain.... i don't have to PAY them to inflict pain and the pain is temporary and leads to long term better dental health.

My dental hygienist friend will be proud ha ha
