Yeah it gets expensive. That's the worst. I had to pay $2000 when I got my wisdom teeth out. I haven't been for a couple of years but I never get cavities.... It sucks not having dental insurance. My dentist has TVs to watch. Its kinda neat. There's not much to fear they numb you so you cant feel anything. But I've never had a bad experience. Having oral surgery sucks though... I barely remember it because of the drugs.. but the pain after was horrible.
