The Only Man I Give All My Money Too!

Dr. Lee Gause


It's been a year since my last appointment with my dentist. Many things happen in 2011 and I rarely made time to take care of my health! Not only was my sinus and weight were affected, my teeth were in poor shape as well.

On January 23rd of this year I went to have my teeth clean. While I do brush every day (sometimes twice) as the saying goes "Brushing is not enough!", little did I realize that those words have become a reality in my life.

The hygienist (Can't remember her name right now) did some X-rays and took pictures of my teeth and then she ask me this question "How is your flossing going?" I told the truth "Not that great!" then she told me that you have 3 cavities and we need to take care of them right away! To be honest, with my poor eating and drinking soda almost everyday (okay let me make this clear, times have change and I cut back on many things!) I was not surprise to hear that cavities are resting in my mouth! 


My Dentist (The man you see on the right, okay ladies stop drooling) came in to see me and the look on his face said enough! Dr. Lee Gause took one look at my photos and said "I don't like to walk in here and see that!" 

He called the next day and spoke with my mom and I about what happen the day before and the next thing was kind of shocking but not really; Dr. Gause found 4 more cavities and they had to be worked on soon because I was on the borderline before they hit the nerve! 
Really?
On Tuesday February 7, I had 2 Filings which means 2 down and 5 more to go! Another thing I had to ask God to hold my hand in because I don't like needles, especially the ones they use in the dentist office to numb your mouth! 

I'm glad this happen for so many reasons

1: My teeth are the most important thing in regards to my health and I should learn as much as I can so I won't look like this

2: I don't like having to pay for my "I don't give a damn" fund; when I don't take care of my teeth I'm basically telling my body I don't give a damn about you! In order to save more money and not keep throwing it out the window, my teeth and I will become best friends now where is that floss!

3: I HATE PAIN: The pressure from the filings had a tear coming out of one of my eyes and while the doctor and his nurse didn't see or feel me okay that sounds nasty I was shaking really bad! Oh yeah I hate needles....................

As of right now I'm doing fine and on the road to finding a another job because childcare aka babysitting is not doing me a bit of good right now! Dr. Gause is making my wallet cry!

  2. My sympathy on your dental woes. I didn't get good dental care when I was a child so I have gum disease and a mouthful of bad teeth. I could have bought a car for all the money I spent getting my teeth fixed six years ago!

    1. Let me tell you something his pictures don't do him any good because he is a very handsome man in person! He did my implant and God had his hands in all of it because I lost so much bone and Dr. Gause was still able to do the job!

  5. Hi Ebony. I pray that it all works out for you. Dental work can be very costly, which is why I have to get it done a little at a time. My next visit will be a little costly and I am not too happy about that because it is interferring with my "extra" money (ie doll funds). Put it in God's hands, He always deliver.

    Now, on the other side. Girl, you really crack me up. I had my serious face on when I started reading your post but broke out in a laugh when I got to your 1, 2, 3. Lol! You are hilarious! Thanks, I needed this ( the funny part). I had a stressful day at work.

  6. Hi Ebony! I'm sorry to hear about your dental woes, especially since I need to go to the dentist myself. I don't know which doctor I don't like - the dentist or the gynecologist! As I write this, I'm eating a king size bar of Mr. Goodbar! Mmm, mmm, good!! LOL! Sorry. I probably got a bunch of cavities considering all the candy I eat!! Get all the work done if you can, cause I need to see your smiling face when we go to the doll show in April! Luv u girl!

  7. I feel your pain. I went to the dentist last year after a 10 year absence. It was a lot better than I thought. This year I have to get the cap replaced. I'm no fan of the dentist but I must get back in there.

    I need to switch to your dentist ;O)
