After spending the last week off of work and in and out of the hospital with
migraines, I was sitting at my computer at home yesterday when I realized
that the root canal filling which the dentist just put in not more than a
month ago was crumbling.
Of course, my first reaction was to run to the bathroom cussing and angry,
but then my husband reminded me that he was just talking to someone last
week about lots of migraines being caused by people clenching their teeth at
I knew I was clenching my teeth when they were hurting, but maybe I always
clench them, and I only realize it when my teeth are hurting.
Maybe a simple night time mouthpiece could get me off all these migraine
I called my dentist, and they said they absolutely could help, except for
the small matter of the money I still owe them for the root canal.
Apparently, I maxed out my insurance benefits for the year, with a single
root canal! (I guess the $382 I already gave them didn’t quite cover it.)
So, perhaps my migraine problems are about to be drastically reduced, just
as soon as I find something cheap to bite down on at night, and something to
stuff in the gaping hole in the back of my mouth.
All in all, I’m feeling much better!
