All we want for Christmas is to help heal my dad's mouth. Our dad is in daily pain from his genetically bad teeth. It isn't that he doesn't care for them; he brushes repeatedly and flosses daily. The sad thing is he doesn't smile anymore because he's embarrassed by them. It breaks our hearts. He has a job with dental benefits but they only cover $1,500/year. That won't even fix one tooth! He is a great dad and deserves better. Every time my parents save money for dental procedures, something urgent comes up and my dad insists on sacrificing for our family. That's just how he is. He is the first one there to help anyone out. He helps people who need their cars fixed, people who need something urgent fixed at their house. For almost a year, he would do needed repairs for an elderly widow who needed to sell her house; he took nothing in exchange. That is the type of guy he is, and we've been taught to do the same by example. My dad had a filling fall out of a crumbling tooth recently and his dentist referred him to a specialist because his mouth is so complicated. He had that appointment on Monday and walked extremely discouraged. To fix his entire mouth it would run about $58,000!!!! That is so beyond our comprehension. I am starting this fundraiser hoping that we can raise half of that to get his top teeth fix so he can smile again. And by some miracle, maybe we can get the bottom fixed, too. For his upper he needs 11 extractions, 6 implants, 6 abutments, bone grafting, upper interim teeth and iTeeth with a titanium bar. For his lower, he needs 10 extractions, 4 implants, 4 abutments, bone grafting, lower interim teeth and iTeeth with a titanium bar. There's also fees for IV sedation, xrays and a CT scan. I know its a long shot but my dad is a very, very good man. I know he would be forever grateful and would spend the rest of his life paying it forward. Please help my dad be out of pain and smile again in the new year.
