This is the first time I use a fundraising platform, I do not have other option. Because I delayed it 7 days already, and this is a serious condition.
I am grateful to God and existence because excepting this tragedy, my health is perfect. Though I was very depressed when I found out what happened. It’s about my tooth.
At first, it was necessary only the root canal procedure (as this was not horror enough), I delayed it 2 years. I was so naive that I thought the science would discover something that can heal a tooth decayed to the pulp. And I would afford the treatment. I was delusional.
During those 2 years I had 2 “attacks”. My gum and face swelled so much that I went to hospital. The doctor from the emergency room would use syringe to pull out the puss. I used antibiotics and I went back to normal. Not to mention about extreme dental pain I had at the beginning.
Everything started when my fillings fallen. I went to doctor with my Mom when I was really small, I had a cavity and the doctor filled it.
And with time while my tooth was developing the fill has fallen. At least this is what my Mom thinks. I didn’t notice it falled so the cavity evolved.
The previously week my tooth cracked while I was eating something. I ran immediately home (I wasn’t home). I have an abscessed tooth. I discussed with the doctor and the total procedure is priced at 2000$:
• Fillings – 300$
• Root canal therapy – 700$
• Dental crown – 1000$
I have 1000$ out of this amount and the doctor says it cannot be delayed, this requires immediately intervention. As this was not enough, now half of it is broken. It is so bad that I have only half of it. I can see my gum… With my naked eye!
Fortunately, unless I open my mouth really wide, and you pay attention to it, you cannot see the abscessed tooth. This is because it is placed at the corner of my mouth, where are “the hidden teeths”, to be more specifically.
The emergency is really big, I have to pay all the amount otherwise the procedure would not start. And I have no one to help me. Me and my Mother. I do not have another 1000$, and I want to avoid other complications, an abscessed tooth can lead to severally other problems.
In my country the Dollar is very powerful, even though the prices for medical services and electronics are mainly the same across the world, the income of jobs varies dramatically from country to country. I am staying like that for a week, I barely gathered 1000$ from my savings and Mom’s help.
I’m in the third decade of my life (20 years, to be more specifically), but never heard of other peers the same age as me needing the root canal procedure, and dental crowns. If my job would be enough I would pay alone all the procedure but is very expensive compared to the minimum wage. I need 1000$ to finish the procedure.
Hope you understand. Any help is welcome.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
