I know my insurance will cover very little. I keep delaying going because 1) I despise the dentist and 2) I know it's going to cost a ton of money.

I don't understand why dental insurance is so poor in this country. Gum and tooth infections are serious and can kill you (in extreme, thankfully rare cases). It should be under medical but of course it's not and as a result it's so expensive.
That's so true. I need two crowns and my out of pocket is going to be over $1,900.00. My insurance hardly covered anything.
