I told you I'd go back and get on top of things. I seemed to have clicked with this office, which to me is more important that what tier they are under our insurance. I'm willing to pay a little more if I feel comfortable there. I got all the tarter scraped off my teeth, which was pretty hard since it had been a while. She also polished and flossed my teeth as well as took x-rays. The dentist and hygienist both were happy with how my teeth, gums, and bone structure looked for someone who hadn't been to the dentist in a while who also has diabetes. I even got a bag full of goodies!
I get to go back in a little over a week for the first couple fillings. Although I'm obviously not excited about it, I am looking forward to getting this work done and being pain-free. I'm proud of myself for setting up my next cleaning in March already. I'm also getting better at brushing and flossing how I should vs. when I remember. (Remember that I already admitted to not being the model diabetic.) Hopefully in the next few months I'll be totally done (should take about three appointments) and move on to other things.
