Dental work is crazy expensive! But, the longer you wait, the more damage can happen. And more damage means $$$$!! I went to the dentist the fall of 2011. All I needed were fillings (quite a bit..) and my wisdom teeth pulled and it was going to be like $700 after insurance. I didn't get it done, and just shelled out $600 for a root canal, and need another. Total estimate this time is close to $1500 and that doesn't include the wisdom teeth! Don't wait!!
The longer you wait, the worse it could get. Can you set up a payment plan if it's super expensive?
Yup I am a fool for not going in when i got a dental injury due to my fears and no insurance , it has gotten worse of course.
girl i feel you, my teeth and gums have been acting up really bad recently and they look horrible. I have a horrible anxiety about going to the dentist, and its freaking me out.
I'm scared to go,
but im scared not to go.
I'm pretty sure I have something called peridontal disease or something and it is severly affecting my gums...
I wish there was a magical way to make it all get taken care of and me not have to be awake.
But since im 24weeks pregnant i cant get sedation....
Get the nitrous oxide/laughing gas. That' s what I do. It calms me down. It costs extra, but it's worth it.
I spent a thousand back in august to get my teeth done. I agree with a few others dont wait. I put it off and put it off. Well my teeth were too bad to repair so I have false teeth. Still need to do work on my bottom teeth. But not as bad as top was.
Good luck!!! Do a little bit each time.Yes, ask if they offer a payment plan.
I'll hide with you. I need serious work and am quite dental phobic. If you want me I'll be over there in the couch fort hiding.
