I went in for my follow up appointment with the oral surgeon today…it really took less than 5 minutes. I sat in the chair, he came in, took a syringe, cleaned out the holes, told me to swallow each time and that was it! He said I was healing nicely and everything looked good. Great! Now, on to the business part. As some of you may already know by reading my previous posts, there was a mix up at the office. Instead of just having 4 of my bicuspids extracted, all 8 was pulled out. This would’ve cost me over $2K when I had only estimated about $900 for the whole thing. So of course I was mad and I wouldn’t have paid him more than I was estimated. So I went in there, ready to battle with him if I needed to. Turns out I didn’t…he understood that there was a miscommunication and he was willing to just let me pay what I was going to pay. So it all worked out in the end! As a bonus, the wisdom teeth extractions won’t even be counted towards my yearly allowance for 2009 so now I have more to spend on my teeth next year! Woohoo! Not that I plan on doing anything more to it! But it’s good to know that they were willing to fix their screwup and not screw me over. I am happy now.
My mouth is getting much better. It’s not as sore anymore and I’m pain free. I can finally eat now! Yay!
