In 2015 I was 8 months pregnant. I had a back tooth break. I was able to get a temporary filing, which should’ve only lasted 3 months or so. It didn’t fall out until 1 year later! The pain is excruciating. It throbs and sometimes my face will be swollen. At the beginning of 2020 I went to a local dentist. He was having a special for exam, X-ray’s and cleaning - for free! I was able to get an estimate on the dental care that I would need. It’s quite the list. I have a receding gum line that’s would require a few rounds of gum therapy. The broken tooth needed to be pulled as it can’t be saved. It leaves the nastiest taste/odor in my mouth. It’s embarrassing. I miss smiling. I miss not having to worry if someone can smell my tooth that is decaying. The tooth right beside the broken one needs a root canal. I also have an upper incisor that has a filling, the dentist wants to just cap this off. That tooth looks like something is stuck between it due to the discolored filling. And of course, I have other cavities. I wish I had taken better care of my teeth. I really do. I am a single mom of 3. I do feel selfish asking for help for myself. As a single mom there are so many other things that I need. But for once I just want help for myself. I just want the pain to stop!
