i guess not going to the dentist for twenty years can render one's teeth a bit fragile.
fortunately the nerve is not exposed so it doesn't hurt at all and naturally since it is not hurting i am wondering how long i can put off getting it fixed. i hate dentists (1) and i have no dental insurance (2).
i guess though if i did go to get it fixed i might be eligible for a good wallop of nitrous. that might be worth it.
