I have a back story. I’m 42 now and back in the early 20’s I was doing some drugs that I shouldn’t have been doing. I was shy and was influenced by the wrong individuals. I had braces on at the time. This is what is causing me a lot of issues right now. In 2005 I ended up getting heart failure and almost died. My ejection fraction was at 10 to 15% and was given 6 to 12 months to live. So BIG wake up call. I stopped doing the drugs and cleaned up my act. Got rid of those bad influential people that I knew. I received a second chance. I now have a loving husband and am a proud mom of 3 young boys. I’m also found Christ and have started going to church where I attend bible study and have turned my life around. I’ve been clean ever since and will never go back. Due to the damage that the drugs had done to my teeth. I am missing all of my back bottom and top teeth. They have all been pulled. I had facial cavities on my top front teeth which I have fixed those issues by getting crowns on my top front teeth, but my back teeth are the issue. It’s hard to eat food and doesn’t make me feel good about myself. I’m so tired of soup and mashed potatoes too which is pretty much all I can eat! 😊 I need to get bridges or dentures or implants on the bottom and top. They need to do bone grafting as well. I have looked at options such as dentures but the overall cost I cannot afford without going into complete debt and not making monthly payments on something else that is crucial like the mortgage or gas. The estimates are overwhelming. We live paycheck to paycheck as many others are living with currently. My oldest son also has dental work needed. I’m at a loss. I maxed out my CareCredit card with all of my dental care that I’ve had so far and really need some help. It’s like never ending and I pray to see the end sooner than never. I need to ask for help from you all. If you can help and spare anything I’d greatly appreciate it and it will not go unappreciated. God bless each and every one of you and thank you for reading this.
