Dentists and Children

It appears my wife’s super strong teeth have been passed down to the next generation. TRC went to the dentist two days ago. The verdict? Eight cavities. Count ’em: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. They’re supposedly small, but eight? EIGHT? And guess who the genius was who thought he could wait another year before putting the tikes on the dental insurance.

Guilty as charged.

So, my fine readers, here’s my question to you: do you think waiting a year on these is a terrible idea? My current plan is to wait until I can enroll him in the dental insurance, which will take effect a year from now. In the meantime, if any of them started hurting him, we’d get them taken care of right away, of course. It’s just that to get them all filled right now, with no insurance . . . $1400 is a little steep for us.


Any and all advice would be welcome.

    Maybe you could just fill the ones that are the worst and save the rest for later?

    a. Did you ask your dentist? Most of them are pretty honest about it, esp. since most of them are probably in baby teeth… unless you have a dentist that is only in it for the money…
    b. How much is the dental insurance/month. And with YOUR HISTORY OF BAD TEETH, why didn’t DO THIS EARLIER? SHEEEsh.
