Please help me save my smile!

A few weeks ago, I was devastated to learn I needed $11,000. for dental surgery. During a routine cleaning, my dentist discovered that the root canals in my top two front teeth are experiencing 'resorption'. Resorption is when the body begins to attack and eat away the root and bone tissue inside of the tooth. Normally a root canal would take care of this problem. Having already had root canals in both teeth after a serious auto accident at age 14, this is not an option for me. After two concurring opinions and a consultation with a surgeon, I know both front teeth will have to be pulled, implants inserted, and crowns added. I have dental insurance, but it covers none of these procedures. The surgeon said the longer I wait, the more likely my teeth are to break off while I'm eating. Time is a critical factor. At this point it isn't if, but when, my teeth will break. I have been urged to have the surgery done as quickly as possible, and preferably within the next few months. Can you please help me save my smile?

UPDATE: In an effort to say thank you for your support, Shannon and some of her massage therapist friends have donated five 90 minute deep tissue massages and two SpaFinder cards (for out of towners) to be given away to people who have contributed to Shannon's fund. So, if you have donated before March 1st, 2013 your name will be put into the hat!
