Disneyland or Oral Surgery?

I'll take oral surgery for $1000.... Actually, make that $3900 to be exact. Matt is going in on Friday to the Periodontist to have micro graft gum surgery to restore receding gum tissue. He had this done 12 years ago, and lucky for him, he gets to do it again. Sadly, BCBS insurance doesn't cover the procedure as it's not deemed a "medical necessity". Sure, they'd pay for his dentures if all his teeth fell out... but nothing preventative.

Unfortunately we had to cancel our Disneyland trip for this upcoming Friday as it was the only day that the Periodontist could do the surgery. Ironically, we probably would have spent about the same amount of money at Disneyland as we're going to spend on Matt's teeth. Wish him luck!
