be careful what you pray for--you may get it!

sorry I haven't posted in a while...

For the past few years I've been praying that God would give me all new teeth or restore my teeth to perfection.

Well, the infection is back from the broken tooth. I finally broke down and went to the dentist. He told me that there are three teeth in a row that are causing the infection and need to come out. He also said that I need to have 10 teeth removed altogether. He suggested implants.

The people in the office were very kind. The prices were the best I've seen outside of the dental college. But, frankly, this terrifies me.

Then I started thinking--maybe this is God's answer to my request for all new teeth. If so, it's not as scary.

My plan is to save the initial money to get the three teeth pulled and then do a little at a time after the new year when my dental insurance kicks in. I am also checking out other dentists to see if I can get sedated.

So, between crazy business at work, taking the night class on finances, and dealing with the pain of the infection, I've just been too tired to do much online.

    My brother wanted to get full mouth implants as he has had all of his teeth pulled but the dentist in St. Louis wanted $42,000 so he said NO.
    I found Dr. German Arzate at Cancun Cosmetic Dentistry where he could have it done for about $20,000 Dr. Arzate has a lot of videos on YouTube.
    Then I read up about the 350 dentist across the border from Yuma Arizona and all of the Americans who go there because it is so much less.
    The one American dentist I found was Tanya Long DDS RightChoice Dental Implant Center of Kentuckiana
    802 E 10th St
    Jeffersonville, IN 47130
    Her husband works for her and makes the teeth. She does it for about $10,000-$20,000 depending on how much work you need. She does take insurance.
    I see you live in Texas, well, I checked out dentist that people go to at Nuevo Progresso, Mexico just across the border and they get a great deal there as well.

    My Dental insurance only paid $1200 a year so it didn't cover much. I hope you have a good plan.

    My prayers are with you. I got two dental implants at the dental school and I am so glad I did. You will be just fine and be thankful for the blessing.
