I pretty much have had bad teeth most of my life. I should have had braces when I was younger but Dad chose for one reason or another to concentrate on my sisters teeth and he never got to mine. As a result I have overcrowding in the lower front, several missing and broken teeth, ongoing infections, bleeding gums, mouth pain, headaches and difficulty eating at times. I recently was able to afford a small dental policy but it is limited to cleanings, x-rays and extractions during the first year which is ok except you need teeth to eat as well. They can eventually do dentures, bridges, etc but you have to wait a year and I need things done now. My real wish is dental implants, but they don't do them. My main goal at this time is to get my mouth in a healthier state, stop the infections, bleeding, do the needed extractions and eliminate the constant pain. If I can use this current dental plan getting the discounted rates to get the needed antibiotics, cleanings and extractions to eventually get my mouth healthier I can then do periodic implants through another dentist and any donations I receive will be used exclusively for my dental and connected medical needs and nothing else such as co-pays, antibiotics and pain meds and travel expenses (if any). I don't have a target amount needed because I have no idea what it will all cost as far as dental. On the medical debt side I do owe about $1100 for ambulance and doctor bills. If you wish to direct your donation to either one (medical OR dental) let me know and I will use it for that need. I am 57 years old and work as a janitor and receive no benefits and I am hoping you can help me. Thank you for reading this and caring.
