Hi all …. well, the procedure to have my teeth removed for dentures, which started last July, 2016, continues. Seems that the roots of my teeth have all demineralized, so when they are taken out, the root crumbles. If they don’t get all the shards, they begin to push at the gum and hurt. The last 4 taken out were the bottom 4 small front teeth, about 2 weeks ago. Now they all have a bulge that hurts pushing , and tomorrow I am to go back to have those surgically cut out. I have had this done so often, I could scream. I’ve been eating soft, pureed, and mashed food since this started. Oh for a great big salad! YUM. So I go tomorrow to get this surgery done and then it will be a full 2 months til the permanent impression can be taken for the permanent teeth. I have temporary top ones, which since the gums have shrunken so much, they are enormous. I have to use so much of that goop on them to keep them in. Anyhow, just guess I wanted to whine …. but I’m totally sick and tired of this whole thing. And, the cost! OMG …. my Dental insurance maxed out and now I have a new bill from the Oral Surgeon for $1600 and I pay $170 each month for the dentist. I have no idea how I am going to pay for all this.
Thanks for listening ….
