  1. No, but that was handy back in '96-'02 when I did, thanks. Maybe God will allow an income change (still working) sometime.
  2. Just discovered clubs & joined. Wonder how long they've existed?
  3. Thanks for the reply. I wish I had better insurance, but pay for DeltaCare through my own pocket since 'work' doesn't offer insurance. Maybe God will allow a miracle to happen though, since I haven't found another dentist I can reach (no car) & is affordable.
  4. Thanks for the reply. Should've checked here sooner. Pain's been ongoing, so it may be shifting teeth. No jaw pain thankfully. The dentist naturally wants me to buy the expensive dentist-made one. Which I agree with, except for the cost. I grind my teeth due to chronic nerve pain in the palate that's been going on six years. Two years of head pain before that. If God allows me the funds to get acupuncture, insurance, or something I guess the pain/stress could end if it's possible. Thanks for the response.
  5. Been a while since posting a topic, but does anyone buy them from the store or get an expensive one from a dentist? I had one that was great for a year or two (long past when I was supposed to stop). Used the backup one, heated it up in boiling water & fitted it- and it ended up causing more pain w/the bottom teeth due to it not fitting ideally. Tried another brand, but it went even worse. Yesterday was really bad pain for the front teeth (adding to the chronic pain of the palate). Had 4 hours of sleep and a bad nightmare from the pain that night. Last night went back to the older one since it's less pain, but- Curious if no bite guard or the expensive dentist one is best now. Well no bite guard can mean grinding away what enamel is left and TMJ, but maybe not for a while. Thanks!

    Say What's On Your Mind

    There's a lot of Prayer Requests active it seems. Tough times abound. Hope people find comfort through God's peace. I had some minor, but annoying painful accidents this week. This week is almost over.

    Christian movies?

    Facing the Giants. The Case for Christ. The Ten Commandments. The Passion of the Christ. God of Wonders. Maybe I'm off on some of those, but I'm just throwing out ideas.

    Pray for Nigeria

    Amen, praying.
  10. Yeah, I usually don't have dental ins either, but I try it once in a while. Thanks for the info. It's residential Concord, CA- not high-rent. And yeah, deep means under the gums. Might go for a regular cleaning since it's been a year or two. Ins should help cover most of that cost at least.
  11. Thanks. Good point. Switching dentists can be really tough due to how hard it is to get through to someone at Delta, but I can consider it. Or just try a regular cleaning.
  12. Hey, been a while since my last post here. Finally- 750 posts. Finally got dental insurance (Delta Care) after a a year or two of not having it & managed to get to a dentist for the first time in quite a while. Got a checkup today, but no cleaning. Dentist said I need a deep cleaning (to get under the gums). Even w/insurance (well, weak insurance) it's a lot of money. But I guess it's better than losing my gums, teeth, etc. Tough to know who to trust. And what to do. My bite's off & he wants to do a custom bite guard for sleep (serious teeth grinding). Been using store bought ones for some years now, but he said those can make things worse. Last dentist (or two) wanted to do the same, but I never had the money for it. Maybe it's finally time to do that too. So tough to decide when to give in and spend when money's limited. No idea what others do. Thanks! God bless.

    Worthy has changed a lot in ten years ...

    Hm, thanks for the insights. Good to know what's up. I've been on the forums since '06, but have less than 750 posts. Well, glad to post here, though I don't have much to offer to the talk. Things have definitely changed and seem ok to me. Though if things are awry & I'm missing it, I'll trust God that we'll work through it.
