Just got back from the hospital dentist...

On June 2nd, Avery will go in for day surgery at the Children's Hospital. She has to have four root canals, fillings where possible, and although they will do their best to avoid it, her four front upper teeth extracted. Without insurance, it is $2600. Since Brad just started at Telus this week here's hoping there's no delay on that paperwork. I am going to take June 2nd off, I get June 3rd off (since Cenovus has the first and third Fridays of the month off) and then we will have the weekend off to get her back on track. I am not looking forward to it but, for the sake of her dentists, I am glad she will be sedated.

P.S. A doctor and nurse will attend her surgery to keep tabs on her heart plus she will be pre-medicated with antibiotics.

Allison, are they going to seal the rest of her teeth hoping to prevent any more cavity until her adult ones come in? If they do extract the toppers, will she have to wear spacers or something? $2600 seems like a lot until I tell you that is one root canal and one porcelain crown with out anesthetic where I live. That would pay one implant with medical but not the crown. Lost my insurance in bankruptcy, so I am saving up bits by bits.
