Oh yea, I got teeth... well sorta. Dr Steltzman made me plastic teeth, a bridge to go over the 6 left in the lower front. Tickled me so much I stopped by and showed mom, then Cindy, Shelly, and Linda at Easy Inn, then Misty & Matt. I wanted to show Denise but they were busy yesterday at the office and I didn't want to get her in trouble. I go Monday to get the lower teeth pulled and then hopefully to get the temporary bridge put back on until my partial comes in, or that is how I'm hoping it will go anyway. Dr Boyd will make that determination though. The teeth aren't cheap but I'm fortunate to have two good doctors on that since most are afraid to work on someone who has had radiation in that area. Both of them have a great crew too that work for them. That makes a big difference.

  I got a price for the whole thing, uppers and lowers, two caps plus repair, and for now since we have to meet deductibles all over again, plus the medicine costs, and the tests, and everyday living expenses... I'm going to wait on the upper plate and extractions. All of this has been costly and so far we've been able to pay as we went and I still want to do it that way. Plus I want to know the throat cancer is gone, if not, it would be a waste of money. That would be money spent better on other things since I know of no use dentures have. I don't think anybody else could use them. But for now... I have front teeth again. Oh yeaaaa. :)
