Before I get into details, a little backstory: The damage to my teeth was a long time coming. The long and short is: I did this to myself over the years and I knew eventually I was going to have to pay the price. Unfortunately for me, I now know how much that price is and there are no avenues I can take that would allow me to pay for these mistakes on my own. I do have a “break glass in case of emergency” option in the form of my father but I feel like this is something I should at least attempt to accomplish on my own and wanted to come here first before asking him.
The timeframe for everything is as follows: once I have the surgery to remove all my teeth, I have been told it will take anywhere from 3 to 10 days for the wounds to heal. Then I get molds made for the dentures and then it’s another 2 weeks for them to actually be made. So in all, I’m looking to be without teeth and, possibly, without work for anywhere from 3 weeks to a month.
I’m asking you all for $9,600 to help cover the costs of the procedures, totaling $8,900, the predicted costs of medications, costing around $100, $300 for the foods and meal replacements for that month don’t have teeth and an added $300 to cover any unforeseen costs I haven’t considered yet.
I know I’m asking for a lot from any of you, most of all those who don’t know me. But I wouldn’t have attempted this if I didn’t have a gut feeling that this could be accomplished. Anything you guys can give to help me in getting this done would be most appreciative and I’d be more grateful than anyone can possibly imagine. I thank you all for at least taking the time to read through this and even more for your donations.
