As I get off the phone with my grandfather he informs me the hurdles he’s been going through with his insurance company and dentist.
Due to hereditary dental issues, the past few years have been a hard one on my grandfather as he rapidly started loosing his teeth. Topped with multiple dental visits a month and thousands of dollars later.
He was still left with aches and excruciating pain in his mouth. After only having 11 teeth which made it difficult to chew food and still be without pain as the decay of those started occurring. Money got very tight for him and he started pulling out his teeth himself (he just informed this to me over the phone). He was able to go back in and get the rest removed in preparation for dentures in which his quote was $6000. He is now in the process of paying back the $2000 it took for the extractions and can’t pay for the dentures right away.
With the Holidays coming up he is ashamed to come around family and says he doesn’t want to scare the babies..
My grandfather had a tough upbringing but that never defined him. He has been a loyal and loving grandfather to 5 of us grandchildren and now 2 great grandchildren.
Times are rough right now for everyone and we truly appreciate any amount giving to reaching grandpa’s smile goals
