I am in huge need of help with paying for dental work and a flight to another country because dentists in the US are so unbelievably expensive. I am in need of 13 crowns, root canals, dental fillings and other details (such as x-rays, panoramic, etc.) that a dentist requests. I have found a dentist in Eastern Europe and she started some work last year, however we stopped because I couldn’t pay her. I would like to go back and finish. I can’t afford dental insurance in the US, and even with the dental insurance, not much would be covered. What here would cost me $30,000 to $35,000, in another country I would pay about $6,000. The round trip flight is about $750.
The lack of teeth or the few stomps I have in my mouth are not only preventing me from smiling and being myself, but it also bothers my digestion and that opens a new set of issues. I was lucky that the use of mask for the last year covered my mouth. That way I could talk with the face mask on without having people looking at me with disgust (as they usually do), probably thinking that I’ve got what I deserved because I didn’t brush my teeth or didn’t respect basic dental hygiene. I did have dental problems ever since I was born. I am not sure why, but my mom mentioned that my teeth were already decayed before protruding through gum. The permanent teeth were not very resistant to cavities either. But I feel like I have a chance now to fix them and be able to smile without being judged. Or to improve my digestion by being able to chew on food and avoid the abdominal pain and other problems arising from being unable to properly eat. There is also a problem of self-confidence knowing that the way I look prevents me from getting a better job or even find my better half.
I am hoping to find help here, I am sure many people understands toothache and climbing on the walls when the pain starts. As I previously mentioned, there is more to dental problems (digestive issues, lack of self-confidence, and depression episodes thinking that with stomps in my mouth who would even look at me). I am constantly bullied and I can’t say that I am used to it… How can someone get used to being bullied…
Sometimes I wish I die because I feel like I am dead inside already. The Covid 19 around makes life even more miserable. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading. I would post a few pictures but I am so embarrassed, I am afraid someone would recognize me and start another series of bullying.
