Oral Surgery

I want to start by saying that one of the hardest things for me to do is ask for help, especially financially. I always try to do everything in my power to do what I have to do to get by, but these circumstances were completely unexpected and I really have no other option at this time but to ask for help. As you can see by the fundraiser picture, I have a gap in my top front teeth. I have had this since I was a child but it has grown wider. At my last dentist visit the dentist informed me that my gap is caused by the frenulum of my top lip and gums being too low. This is usually caught in childhood, but mine wasn’t and he said that if it doesn’t get repaired then my gap will likely just continue to grow. This has caused crowding in my back teeth and I now have an impacted wisdom tooth as a result. To take care of the frenulum and my wisdom teeth it is going to be $902, even with my dental insurance. I wasn’t expecting a medical expense like this, and with my husband leaving me the day before this happened and our finances being split, I have little to no savings put back, and down to one income I’m not even sure I will be able to afford financing payments. I understand that this is a big ask, and I totally understand if you can’t donate! I appreciate any help that I can get, and thank you for your time!
