    I worked at my job for eight years and then because of the recession I got laid off and of course lost both my health and dental insurance as a result. Any insurance I bought elsewhere would be cost prohibitive. For those eight years I never had a problem with my teeth, then one...

    It's More of a Sensitive Tooth
