Does anyone else here have bad teeth through no fault of their own? I take care of my teeth - I brush twice a day with an electric toothbrush and floss pretty much every night - and this morning I went to the dentist for some pain and ended up with a fucking root canal.

Even better news? I may lose one of the teeth. The chance is 20% that an old root canal can't be redone and I'll have to have it yanked. I am getting married in May! I told them I don't even care if I have to be on fucking hydrocodone* for the whole spring, I will absolutely not be a toothless bride. The tooth isn't in the front, but still. That is not a good look or a good way to feel when everyone you know is freaking staring at you.

This is a genetic thing, I think, but it sucks and is so expensive and I already have enough credit card debt and I'm real mad.

*The hydrocodone I was given is doing next to nothing for the pain right now.
