Otherwise this would have cost $1100.
That's the spot where the dentist sewed a flap of my skin (taken from the roof of my mouth) to an exposed area of my gum. Yes, it hurts quite a lot.
I also need to get my wisdom teeth out this summer. I've gone without dental insurance for so long that I truly underestimated the value of having coverage now. Even though I'm looking for another job, it takes a while for dental insurance to kick in so hopefully I can finish all the work I need before then.
