As I’m writing this, I’m currently sitting at the dentist’s office, kicking myself for a lifetime of bad dental habits and ‘sweet tooth’ excuses. The front desk receptionist is reviewing what I owe for today’s appointment ($168), what I will owe to get my second root canal done ($355), and what I will owe if I get my second root canal done and my first one retreated ($1558).
I’m beginning to understand what people mean when they say, “Health is wealth.”
Lucky for me, there may be a cheaper solution. Years ago, my mother introduced me to the book, Cure Tooth Decay, which teaches how to remineralize teeth using a new diet. I can’t say whether my minimal application of the new diet actually did anything, but a lot people online swear by it so, hey – I’ll give it another shot.
I hope I’ll give it another shot. Work has left me pretty exhausted lately, so my willingness to try new things is running low.
I’ll ponder the matter for a bit and try to come up with a plan. In the meantime, thank God for emergency funds.
