To the awesome souls considering these requests.
I never could have imagined the profound impact that losing my teeth would have on me. Once upon a time people would often comment on my exceptional set of chompers, not only because they were neat and tidy but because I had a very full and toothy smile which made it unbearable when they began to decay and fall out quite rapidly after many years on a certain medication. But I don’t let things get me down that easily and before too long I had my first set of dentures. Although they pale in comparison to real teeth, what with certain foods no loner being on the menu and the horrible waxy glue that I had to wear after they no longer fitted perfectly… fast forward to present day after my third set of teeth were eaten by the dog (very expensive snack) I can no longer raise the money for new dentures and I certainly can’t afford a set of much more desirable implants, my face and cheeks have sunken giving me the tell-tale jowls of a much older man. I have recently realised also that most people can’t understand what I’m saying, instead they just nod and smile until they realise that I am waiting for a response in which case they have to confess that they haven’t understood a word and were too polite to say otherwise. I have become so depressed that I am concerned about my own well-being. I used to be a talented artist but my zest for life and my severe self esteem issues have become all encompassing. I truly hope that someone out there will find it in their heart to assist with my request for the dental treatment I now require due to advanced disintegration of the bone in my jaws, – I would like a procedure called all-on-four, an implant worth around 30k Australian money.
Thankyou for reading my plea.
