pulling/cutting teeth out aint cheap.it cost me $2000 to get 9 upper teeth pulled.an i had about 6 teeth filled on the bottom.an that cost $1000 or more.then i had a deep cleaning done on my bottom teeth.that was $400 for the cleaning.then $1475 for upper plate.so im out close to $6000 on the deal.

On the brighter side--
Dentist replaced a filling this past Wed.
Worst part was the shot (he calls it an injection) and it wasn't bad at all.
He was telling me about going to Omaha to watch LSU win the championship. He had a really good time.
Then after he got through poking around in my mouth, we got to talking guns. He has a .40 and really likes it. We are talking about getting together to go shoot.

I finally told him he had another patient waiting.
His dental assistant, whom I dearly love, :heart: gave me a big hug as I was leaving. My hero is Snoopy and she gave me a Charlie Brown and Snoopy book this last Christmas.)

I had a very nice visit to the dentist office.

Hope they make those steaks taste better. You are going to have to do a lot of eating to get good use out of them. Enjoy.

My friends uncle makes teeth and dentures for a living. He has a little shop at his house. He used to make some on the side for people who didn't have insurance or couldn't afford the "correct" method of getting them. He would charge about $300 for a set but they shut him down from doing this. Now he can only make them for the dentists.

Typical government at its finest. Did you hear about the doctor that had his own little insurance plan going? Seems that it was $87.00 per month for all the doctor visits that you wanted. He got slapped down for doing that too...
