My work with the Halifax periodontal is now done. I was in for the final cleaning and check up. It went pretty well except having to give them another $500. I won't miss that part. Despite some coverage from benefits it was still pretty expensive. I hope my regular dentist doesn't have any more specialist recommendations up her sleeve after this and the wisdom teeth. My teeth feel all right and the top feels different after being gouged out to fill in the bottom but I can eat normally again now and I'm used to the ridges in the top now.
The specialist did recommend I try a rotating toothbrush so I might try that. The one she recommends is $90 at costco so yet more to spend it seems. Maybe I'll wait to Christmas what's an extra 2 months at this point after going all these years on regular toothbrushes.
