$$Dental Work$$

September 25th, 2021 at 02:08 pm

Last week I needed to go into the dentist and discovered that I had a cracked tooth. After 2 visits and some significant pain I am happy to say that I am finally feeling much better, with just some minor soreness. This not only physically hurt, but it hurt my wallet too. Even with decent dental insurance I’m still estimated to owe around $1200. A large portion of this is the cost of the crown I will need. It also includes another small procedure on another tooth and an upcoming cleaning.  


Fortunately, I have a healthy emergency fund to pay for this expense, so while I will put it on my credit card to earn cash back points, I can pay it off in full when the bill is due.  


I’m looking forward to having my family over tomorrow on Sunday for football watching and lunch. My cousin is bringing pizza and wings, and I’ll be serving homemade apple pie for dessert. We always have such a good time on our football Sundays. It’s a low-cost way to have a great time with family. 


The weather here on the east coast has turned cooler and I am loving it. It felt so good to open the windows and turn off the AC for a bit. Fall is my favorite season!

    Sorry about the tooth! Ouch! But as you said, how wonderful you had the emergency fund!

    Your family get together sounds grand! Hope it was a delight!

    Enjoy the cooler weather. We had it in the Midwest for a few days, but it is supposed to heat up this week in the middle 80s.

    Definitely a big relief to only have to deal with the problem of the tooth and not how to pay for it! All the same, wishing you a speedy recovery!
