8 Dental Implants - Yay! New Molars

Over the last few years I have had many of my molars break and shatter. I keep up with my dental appointments - but due to some bad genes my molars are essentially hollow and they break apart and shatter.

I have lost 8 of my teeth and those that remainin the back aren't strong enough to anchor bridges, and they won't survive root canals. So I am left with dental implants. Guess what - dental insurance is loath to pay for implants. So 6 implants and 2 bridges supported by them. So after double coverage for my dental work and using 2 years of benefits we are so far in 21K for the bone blocks and and the anchors and gum restoration work. 

The cost they don't tell you about is the crowns. So in addition to all the surgery and grafts and healing time then they hit you with the crowns. The crowns are another 17K in addition. I have paid for the bone and the gums - but it's just one more hit to do the crowns - with the crowns I can eat normally again. 

All the funds are going to be directed at the crowns - this is really the last step and I can then have a huge load off and wait for bones to heal without worrying "how am I going to pay for all the crowns".

I hate asking for help - I hate asking for anything - but I appreciate any help anyone can give. 

I know donation levels are silly - but I want to be able to give some kind of thank you. I make chainmaile armor and jewelry so the donation levels below are so I can at least give you something back (I have a huge inventory of rings so I am just going to be selecting from there).
