Nelly -
You are a hoot! And, I appreciate your upbeat personality in the midst of all you have been through. I also just went through reality shock at the dentist - 3 crowns for $3,600.00 - plus, one more next week. I even had 2 dental policies at $1,000 each, but, of course, good ole' BCBS isn't going to pay the full $1,000 on their policy - so, I'm feeling guilty about spending money (actually credit card!!! ) that I don't have.
Like you, I used to have a beautiful smile and have spent literally thousands on my mouth. But, many years ago I developed cellulitis in my mouth/face and had to have several extractions due to the infection - mainly molars, and since then I seem to have developed some kind of auto-immune issue that causes dry mouth and my saliva causes pin-point places of decay - no matter what I do.
I have a very aggressive dentist who wants to do implants, etc. and I'm such a "wuss" he intimidates me. But, I've told him no and I'll just keep on keeping on. I'd love to have my whole mouth done - but, get ready for this - the total charge - would be $30,000 - he wants to do crowns on every tooth and implants too -it's like Extreme Makeover !!!!!! At my age, no thank you!!! Guess I'll keep on until DH and I each have dentures!
Hang in there, Sweetie - you're a gem!
P.S. That really sucks about the hospital policy... I'm sure they have their attorney(s) writing policy to make them not liable for anything!
