My God Dentures! $37,000!!!!!
Supposedly my United Medicare will cover some of this but I have to put up the whole amount initially.

I could pay a lot less but I am almost positive I could not deal with dentures that you can take out because I have had bridgeens and ended up not using them because I just couldn't stand it.

After I had a root canal, (totally useless now since it has to come out too - $2,000) 4 days later a 3 cap bridge on the top came loose and when I went to the dentist he told me I had another cavity under it (It is only about 4 years old) and a cavity next to it and my bones blah blah blah and I need dentures. I've always had problems with my teeth and I think, among other things it has to do with all the medication I have taken for bipolar that has caused dry mouth.

Anyway a couple days after that a cap on the other side of my front teeth fell off and then my front teeth caps are just crumbling. I'm wearing a mask most places now because of how horrible it all looks. I'm sill wondering if that root canal where they used some "Wave" technology didn't loosen the caps.

It is all kind of terrifying and plus I have bad TMJ from an accident years ago that acts up every time I go to the dentist. I am really kind of freaked out about everything right now. The dentist said that, because I am opting to go under anesthesia when they pull I won't tense up and it should be much easier on my jaw

I feel bad now for people who have missing teeth in the front who cannot afford to have them fixed. I am very lucky that I can have this done - even though it feels like a horror show.

(I also have to call the bank to tell them I am going to put a BIG purchase on my credit card as I can see it not going through)

So......life goes on.

Dentures? Sounds more like Maraya1969 is getting dental implants, very different.

Reply #11 and Maraya1969's response, as well as Reply #21, suggest that it would/will be implants, not (traditional) dentures.

If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

When you are the beneficiary of someone’s kindness and generosity, it produces a sense of gratitude and community.

When you are the beneficiary of a policy that steals from someone and gives it to you in return for your vote, it produces a sense of entitlement and dependency.

That’s what to much meth will do to you.

Maybe if you brushed your teeth once in a while you wouldn’t have all these problems. :thatsright:

Go to India. You can get the implants much cheaper and make the trip a three week vacation.

If s/h/it goes to China to do it, s/h/it can probably "donate" body parts on the black market while s/h/it waits.

DUmp cred galore if they post about how generous they are while their kidneys are being harvested...  :-)

Bonus dramatic weight loss with that same trip!
