I have a great dentist, but I hate going to the dentist.  It's a shame, because I have brittle teeth.  A genetic thing.  I brush and floss, and they still crack.

Yesterday I got to go in for the third crown on one of my molars.  I went to an oral surgeon and he said that the one on there was the wrong size for the tooth! It was put on by the dentist I had in Minnesota.  I had it on there for almost 5 years!  No wonder I got a couple of infections there every year.  The new crown fits really well, and hopefully that is that.  I could have gotten a new car with what I've spent on my mouth in the past decade.

On a happier note, the air conditioner in the house works, the strawberries at Safeway have been wonderful, and the skies in Arizona are spectacular!

The picture below is called Aqua Sky, and was a challenge wallhanging that I made..  I like it!

Take care!

I could pay cash for a house with what I have spent at the dentist, seriously!!! Two TMJ surgeries, upper jaw broken, braces (twice!), 3 root canals and 30 crowns (10 had to be replaced), plus I am in the middle of having a implant done. I feel your pain! What an awesome quilting studio I could have had!!! But I have a great smile :o)

I've "only" had two root canals on the same tooth in a little over a year -- and now there's question about whether it should've just been pulled immediately after it broke in the first place... not enough to pay for a car or house yet, but still enough to make me wnat to cry.

Your crown was the WRONG SIZE?! That's what I hate most about going to the dentist. It feels like we've just got to take their word for it that they're doing the right thing.
