Greetings, I’m writing in distress. My name is Jackie and I am 35 years old. I have an obscene amount of dental work I need to have done. I do not have dental insurance or the means for all my dental work.
When I was 10 years old, I had braces for approximately 2 years. After my braces came off I stopped going to the dentist, so by the time I was 17 I needed 11 fillings. After all that dental work, I started to get extream anxiety about going to the dentist, so I didn’t see a dentist until I was 26 and had my first root canal. I had 2 more root canals at 32 and never got the caps that suppose to be placed over them.
I recently went for in for an exam and was overwhelmed by the amount of dental work I need to have done. I need 2 dental implants, 2 root canals, 1 cap replaced, 4 caps, 4 fillings, 4 filling replacements and I have 6 teeth that are chipped that need composite veneers.
I do not do drugs, and I quit smoking 3 years ago. I asked my dentist why he thinks my teeth are so bad, he said I simply ate too much sugar and didn’t brush properly / take care of my teeth.
I moved back to my home state about a month ago, my dad recently had heart surgery, so I decided to move back home to be close to him. I’m currently looking for employment and I do not have dental insurance.
Before I moved I was transitioning to the real estate department of my office and quickly realized that its the career path I want to pursue. I plan to get my real estate license and start selling homes. In this field of work presentation and appearance is a huge part of the job. Right now I’m ashamed of my teeth, I don’t want to smile in front of people. I’m simply embarrassed.
My anxiety for my oral care is extremely high right now, I can’t sleep well at night and I’m becoming depressed. I need approximately $15,000.00 to save my teeth and any help will be appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
