The dentist visit went a lot better than I thought it would. I do have a bunch of work to get done but our insurance will be covering most of it. I had x-rays, consult, scaling and cleaning. I was there for 2 hours. The scaling which I wasn’t looking forward to went completely pain-free and now I have purtty teeth. I do have a bunch of cavitys and I need a crown on one of the teeth but aside from that I came away pretty good. thanks fishee for the well-wishes.
