So I broke down and went to the dentist because I've got some extra $$ left over after buying textbooks this semester. The total amount of work comes out to over $7,000 (it's gotten worse since last time, yay). I got him to agree that I only wanted to fix what was bothering me right now...which comes out to $1,300 after insurance. Two root canals and a filling.
I also have to wait til next Thursday to get it fixed and miss yet another day of class. Yay.
