Hey there! Ugh.....I am having some major pain right now around my left temple and in front of my ear
I am going to be making a trip to the doctor. I don't know if it's an ear problem, TMJ, or what???
I know how you feel about your teeth. I had a dentist phobia and finally went after eight years. I had a filling in the front that was ready to fall out and that's why I went back. It cost me $3900 to get my entire mouth fixed. I needed all of my fillings replaced and I still need two crowns. I can't afford that right now, so I have to put that off for another year or two. I don't know what your credit is like, but I got a Care Credit card. If your dentist is a participant, you can apply online at [url]www.carecredit.com[/url]. It's a credit card, but it's for doctor, dental and vet bills. Depending on each amount applied on the card, you can get it for 18 months same as cash. I have $3900 on my card and my minimum payment is $83 per month. I can't afford the payment, but it was so worth it. Also, check with your dentist about a payment plan. Some dentists will do the payment plan if you let them take a monthly payment debited from your checking.
Hope eveything works out for you and you are able to get your mouth fixed.
