Hi, I’m Mahmoud, a 23 yeard old guy from Italy.
I need money for my dental care. Throughout my childhood I always had poor teeth.
2 years ago, I decided to take my teeth health seriously, and now I spend around 45 minutes daily, in teeth cleaning sessions (it’s comprised of swishing, brushing, flossing etc.).
Infact, I clean every teeth individually.
However, for 19 years of my life, I had bad diet (full of sugars and seed oils), and an almost absent teeth care routine.
So now, I carry the results of those 19 years.
My wisdom teeth are perfect, and oral microbioma is good, I almost never have bad breath (even when waking up in the morning)…but I still have almost destroyed teeth from the past. Dental care, doesn’t reverse that, as far as I know.
Big cavities, appearently, can only get worse and worse, since those super-compromised teeth I am talking about, have went through a “necrosis” process (aka dying), with abscess and fever.
Eventually, when the abscess goes away (usually after a week), the teeth is basically dead, it becomes insensitive to cold. But the infection, under the gum, remains, and it puts a burden on the immune system.
Infact, occasionally, my gums gets inflamed under those dead teeth.
No teeth pain, but gum pain and fever.
The teeth need to be extracted, but I have very few molars already (I got 4 removed, and 5 almost completely destroyed), I do most of my chewing on almost-flat teeth.
I want to remove the teeth, but then I would need to replace them with implants, right away, because I already have a hard time chewing.
I finally went to a a private dentist today, after about 6 years without seeing any dentist (I don’t like the way public-healthcare-dentists usually worked, they were shallow and in a hurry, and my dental situation has always been “serious”, it requires “serious” work…I was always afraid to ruin my teeth more than they were already; I would also add that they would often humiliate me on my situation, and I was offended as a child and teenager).
Excluding extraction and implants, the private dentist gave me a quotation of about €3000, to save the teeth that can be saved.
Extraction+implant, are of course, whole different numbers (probably in the 10.000s of Euros).
But all I’m interested in now, is saving the teeth that can be saved, so that I know that in the future, I will have those teeth (my dental care routine, should help with that).
So I’m asking some money in those numbers.
But a few 100s, would be fantastic aswell, since I will be able to fix a few teeth at least.
Thank you very much for reading this.
