So I had big dental problems since I was born….I just found out that it’s actually a genetically transmitted disorder called: Amelogenesis imperfecta.
I only got to find out because I transmitted it to my son as well…he is in treatment for it, we discovered it early for him….for me however is to late and I had tooth decay all over. Last summer it got so bad my teeth were simply breaking during normal eating, I couldn’t smile anymore for years and I couldn’t eat(still don’t eat normally)
Now I took all my savings and got us both(myself and my son into treatment) he is at the moment wearing a space maintainer brace to keep his teeth from moving until all the permanent ones came out as all his baby teeth had to be removed as they were very decayed due to the condition. He is ok, he was the priority!
As for me I started treatment I saved as many of my teeth as possible but I am still left with no teeth of my own on the upper jaw and even on the lower jaw I am left with just the front teeth and two molars….I still can’t eat properly but at least there’s no trace of infection left in my mouth.
Now with all my savings I did implants for me….an all on 4 work on my upper jaw and 2 extra implants on the lower jaw to allow me to chew.
It all worked out great, thank God, I even traveled to Eastern Europe for lower prices on my treatment.
But now it has come the time to put in the crowns(the actual teeth) and the definitive fixed denture(I have a bad fitting provisory denture up at the moment)
I hoped when I blew all my savings(around 4000€ so far) on having the implants and the fillings done that I’ll manage to save in 1 year the rest of the money….but with 2 kids, and Covid and really reduced work time and all the extra expenses with my child’s dental treatment, I couldn’t save enough…and I need another 1500€ to complete the treatment….I already postponed the appointment with two months…but I’ve been told that I have to go As soon as possible or they can not guarantee that the implants won’t get damaged.
I’m scared that I might blow my teeth treatment and my savings.
