Went to the dentist to get my teeth cleaned. He found a cavity under my cap. The tooth has been irritating me for about a month. It is a part of a three unit bridge. He has to cut the bridge and repair the decay...... The problem is that the bridgework will need to be replaced. This will be major bucks and at least the dental insurance will cover half. So, not only have I lost money on my retirement, I will have to pay the dentist too. He said he will also have to work a few more years too. Major bummer.. I am feeling sad..........

Back to work tomorrow. It is a 10 hour day, then off for a week. Maybe I can get something done in the house to ready it for the winter.


  1. Sorry to hear about the unexpected dental work. Not fun, on many levels.


  2. It is obsurd what dentist charge these days. I just went through the new crown ordeal that wasn't seated right. Had to be replaced three times and at $1200.00 I wanted it to fit right. Thieves! It has to get better eventually! Good luck!

  3. That sounds painful for your mouth & your wallet.

  4. So sorry to hear about all that dental work. Not fun.

  5. ouch!! I think we all will be working a few extra years, but thankfully we all still have jobs, right?
