For your prayers and advice!
I crave them!
4 of the teeth that need to come out are my wisdom teeth. One tooth is one that never grew in all the way. The other 5 are the result of the horrible dental experience I had when I was 18. I decided then never to go to a dentist again. Bad choice.
Last night was the most painful night I've ever had. I never want to repeat it.
I'm going to be going through the storage at my brother's house to see what I can sell. My brother will list the nicer things on ebay for me and in the Spring I'll have a garage sale. Hopefully the ebay will help pay for the immediate need.
I'm hoping the dentist I went to will agree to sedation. If so, I'll stick with him. For clients who pay in cash, the root canals are $120. each. He has a sign in his window that says simple implants are $695 each. If these prices are accurate and if he does plan to replace all ten teeth (although I don't think it's normal to replace wisdom teeth), it would cost me in the neighborhood of $8500.
I sent email inquiries to his office and to a few others to get information about cost vs implants. Of course, it's a holiday weekend so I may not hear back until Tuesday or Wednesday.
I just qualified to sign up for insurance at my company this week. I've signed up for Met Life Gold which is supposed to cover $2000.00 of dental. But, not until after the 1st of the year.
I'm leaning hard on God. He will provide. He always does.
