Chad went in for his decennial dentist appointment yesterday – I’d like to point out here that I made the appointment, if I hadn’t I might be posting about his vicennial dentist appointment ten years from now – and well, he pretty much got the kind of prognosis you’d expect from seeing the dentist once every ten years.

So, 5 1/2 hours later he came home after a root canal and three crown fittings. Ouch! $2000 out of pocket, even with insurance. Double ouch!

If you want to know more about a root canal or see actual pulp tissue pulled from a root canal, check out the root canal page at wikipedia – or just click on the teeth pic.

Poor, poor hubby. He’s at work today dosed up with vicodine and amoxycillin.
