A couple of weeks ago, I went for a regular dental check-up and found that I had a cracked tooth that was beginning to decay; order of the day was a crown. Then last week, my mom goes for her check-up, and receives the same news. Worse yet, this weekend prior to beginning her crown process, she wakes with a terrible toothache, not in the cracked tooth either. News of the day was that she had an abcessed tooth which wound up having to be pulled today! Obviously we did something to tick the tooth fairy off. Hmmmm. Wonder if mom were to put the tooth she had pulled under her pillow, she'd get enough money for it to pay for the crown that is still pending??
