My Teeth ~ PHASE TWO!

Phase one done, phase two begins Jan 13, 2017 in Mexico.

The first part of the process was to straighten the teeth to correct the bite that was causing jaw pain and teeth issues (caused by dentistry error many yrs ago).  A total cost of $4500.  $1665 was raised in this campaign towards this expense.

The next step is to remove two root canaled teeth that have "failed" (one is 39 yrs old and the other is infected).  I'm going to Mexico to have the work done (which will cost half as much as it would in US). 

Because I'm sensitive to metals, I have chosen ceramic implants (higher success rate of the bone accepting the implant), which costs a bit more.  This work will be complete by May.  The cost is $2600 per tooth (minimum). 

Whatever you can donate to help with this $5200 expense would be deeply appreciated.

Much Love and Gratitude to all who have assisted in this long and challenging process!

Phase One, Dec 2014:
A number of years ago I had a couple of root canals and crowns done that have now created another problem. 

The fit was not quite right and caused my teeth to shift.  The difficulty that I'm dealing with as the shifting gets worse is an overbite that is causing other issues.

Unfortunately, it would take more money than the fix to prove that the work the dentist did (Massachusetts) has caused this painful challenge.

I don't have dental insurance and the correction is going to cost $4,200 (that's the uninsured price, the original cost is $7,000).

I would like to schedule the work - it'll take 2 years to correct the damage - and the cost is where I could use some help.

Deep gratitude to you and your beautiful heart, whether you feel to donate to my cause or not.
