Went in for a broken wisdom tooth after x-rays and a couple of Pokes on the gums doctor came in and wanted to pull all of my wisdom teeth I simply asked for the broken tooth to be pulled, I initially scheduled the appointment then canceled after thinking about how I was railroad into all this extra work and cost and finding out that they maxed out my dental insurance and sent me a bill (they did absolutely nothing on my visit) but yet I still have the broken wisdom tooth and now can't get it pulled untill next year after insurance roll over unless i pay out-of-pocket because they max out my yearly plan.
