To say I am a bit out of sorts, somewhat confused and very upset would explain my feelings very well at this point..
It turns out as the doctor said, “I have more going for my mouth than I think I do” but thats not to say it isn’t bad nor is it to say that I don’t need major work done..
The bottom lines are thus : All of my top teeth except for two need to be pulled. He then wants to put in a partial on the top.
All of my bottom teeth except four need to be pulled and he wants to put in another partial..
My gums need to be ‘bled?” That confused me a bit…
After all is said and done, the price I was given today for just the top work and only half of the bottom work is …………….$1988.00….NO they do not do payment plans, I have no insurance, I can not qualify for Care Credit nor can I qualify for a loan…So as it stands, MONEY is what is standing between myself an a healthy mouth and no pain which I am in pain in a few teeth.
All of his treatment plan, although lots of work and I’m sure lots of being uncomfortable sounded like music to my ears.. Maybe I could FINALLY have my mouth healthy and looking healthy and maybe I would feel a little better physically and then………. I was slapped with the reality of how much it would cost..
At this point, I am completely lost because it may as well be $10,000.00.. I don’t have 2 grand to get started, I can’t get a loan and with all the bills we have to pay there’s no way to save it.. Even if I did save $100.00 a month it would take me 2 years almost to save enough to even begin. I am at a complete loss and tonight feeling very very hurt over it all..
Sorry my update wasn’t better…
