I have a freakin wisdom tooth coming in!!!!
So after the pain got worse I called a dentist that my coworker recommended and got an appointment for that same night. This was yesterday. So I was texting my friend about it and she said to watch out, they might charge me an emergency fee! She said a dentist once tried to charge her $250 for getting an appointment the same day. I though oh my god, I really hope they don't do this to me!
When I got there I asked them and they said they didn't charge emergency fees. And these people were like, the nicest people on the planet. I mean, talk about service. I was so glad I went there because they really made me feel at ease. I was the last patient of the day and they didn't make me feel rushed at all, even when they were starting to close up and they were going over the prices with me of having the procedure done to remove it.
So, it turns out that I am getting 3 teeth removed next week! I actually have 4 of them but only 3 are coming up and the 4th one would be more complicated right now because its still really far into the gums. The one that has been bothering me is actually infected, so I have to take antibiotics for a week to clear that up before they can do the procedure. So I get to live with this pain for a week and starve because I can barely open my mouth to fit food in. I went to the grocery store and got lots of soup and applesauce.
So you guys are probably wondering how much this is costing me. Well for the exam and x-rays I had last night it was $120. To get the 3 teeth removed its going to be about $350. I have benefits but I have to pay 50% since I'm technically only part time (on paper). So that's my portion. So thats $470 i've got to take from my emergency fund :(. I hate having to take money from my emergency fund, but I guess the good part is that I have one right?!
Here are a few pins I loved this week:
