Romance via broken tooth

So, if you hadnt read my Facebook or Twitter - or if you were one of the lucky ones who actually got a phone call of me crying & freaking out - then you already know.... I've had ANOTHER tooth break....

Yep - Sunday night, my tooth was aching, but I thought it was just sinus stuff since I was having another "dizzy day" with my ears. But Monday morning, it was still hurting & I pulled out a mirror & lo & behold, half of a tooth is missing in the back.... cue tears!

So I go to the dentist & yep, it needs a root canal & a crown. This made for my 6th root canal & my 5th crown.... and seriously ya'll - I am GOOD about taking care of my teeth, which makes it all even more frustrating! I can remember my daddy making me go in the bathroom when I was little to get me in the habit of even flossing....maybe its because I'm from Kentucky & the rule is, you can only have 4 teeth in your mouth... JOKING fellow Kentuckians.... we all know its 5 teeth!! hehe!!!
(Oh - & by the way - as I'm sitting in the chair waiting, my mom calls me on my BROKEN cell phone - another story - & tells me her tooth just broke!!! She had no idea I was in the dentist chair with my own... aahh - family teeth)

Then the work up of the cost comes in & this is where the freaking out part REALLY kicks in, because it's going to be another $1600.... GASP... but what can you do? Bye bye vacation... hello little tooth

So... here it is - the romance coming up... Ricky keeps calling to check on me - see if I'm ok - what the latest is. I told him the price of my tooth & he says....
"Dont worry - your tooth is my tooth"

There's love for you right there! My husband isnt the most romantic thing in the world, so I'll take a goofy comment like that any time I can get it. I have to admit, it made me laugh & took the freak out level down... romance at its finest!


  1. YUCK!!! I am so sorry. I hate dental work! Praying you are feeling better and that you have no more broken teeth!

  2. You poor thing!

    And that is one of the sweetest things I have ever heard.

  3. Sorry to hear about the tooth. Your husband sure is sweet.

  4. Ricky is just the sweetest!

    As you know, I have alway had problems with my teeth. As much as I tried to take care of them, they just didn't cooperate. I feel your pain, sister.

  5. I have my 6 month check up tomorrow and I think I have a small chip in a molar. If that is true, that will be my 4th crown in 3 years. So, I hear ya'. : )

  6. Oh He is a KEEPER!
    And I hope this is your last root canal/ crown. I had to get one a few months ago (crown...not RC) and it was like $900. Ugh. Makes you want to be a dentist, right??

  7. I don't think I could get married...I want my teeth to be all my own! Okay, seriously, bummer! Maybe it'd be best to have them all removed and just wear dentures? How happening would that be?

  8. Aw bless his heart! That was sweet!!! And bless yours even more! Your poor tooth :( I hate going to the dentist, so I feel you!

  9. Ahhhhh what a sweet heart! My husband would have just freaked out about the cost! How funny you and your mom broke a tooth at the same time?!

  10. sorry to hear about your tooth AND the cost! Be grateful for a kind and understanding hubby!

  11. Wait... I know Ricky... are you sure he didn't say "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." Yeah... he can be a good guy...

    And I'm so sorry about the tooth thing... it is all linked to calcium... which can be found in abundance in the "drink that shall not be named"... (just gagged a little, didn't you?)

  12. Oh my, what a frustrating experience. But I had to laugh when I saw what Ricky said! What a sweet heart!!!!

  13. Awwww, you poor thing!!!! I know you wish you coudl be spending $1600 on anything but a broken tooth!!!

  14. oh no i'm so sorry! that is so sweet of hubby to be so understanding and sweet! and your poor Mom too?? awww!

  15. I am so so sorry...what a bummer :(

    But think of it this way...your getting a brand new mouth full of teeth!!!

  16. Ouchy.... I am so sorry! I hope you feel better!

  17. Oh no! You poor thing! =(

    So sorry to hear you had this happen!

    But what a goofy husband. At least he was able to make you smile when you were having a freak out moment.

    (I was going to say "when you were getting your freak on", but uh...that sounded wrong. Hahaha!!)

  18. It seems like teeth problems run in families for some reason. My husband has lousy teeth but not one person in my family has had any issues at all.

  19. All but 7 teeth on my mouth had had root canals and crowns.
    I took very good care of my teeth but nothing I did worked.
    My mother always thought it was because where I grew up we didn't have flouride in the water.
    I got dentures in January.
    You will survive this with the help if your loving husband.

  20. Aww how sweet of Ricky. So sweet it could give you a cavity! Is he to blame?? Hmmmmm

  21. That should TOTALLY be on tshirt. YOUR TOOTH IS MY TOOTH. How friggin' sweet!!

    Hallie :)

  22. So sweet of him! I hate teeth! I have the same teeth issues. No matter how much I take care of them they always turn on me!



  23. I work for a dentist and as soon as you said broken tooth I knew you were in trouble. I think your hubby's comment is darling and it should be on a card!!
    Feel Better!!

  24. Holy crap my dear, does your insurance pay for any of that?

    I'm so sorry girlie I hope you feel better quickly. Muah lot's of love coming your way!

    Ricky you're the sweetest!

  25. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Hugs to you! I don't like dentists at all, I hope you feel better soon.

  26. Sorry to hear about having to get another RCT and Crn! Yikes! I know we are both having a tooth crisis right now haha. Ricky is so sweet!
