Michele's Dental Dilemma
Organized by: Michele Leete
I would love to eat all the fruits and nuts and raw vegetables like most people do instead of gumming it to death! A juicy steak would be nice too! I have had dentures (with posts in the jaw bone) for quite a few years and last year one of them became severely infected, would not respond to antibiotics so they had to be removed along with the other as they were so old. Why am I not saving to pay for my own medical need? I am a 58 year old single woman who has spent two of the last three years in bed - literally- with LYME DISEASE. In between the two years I broke my wrist in five places! So, I need two new posts ,four snaps\attachments, and a new set of dentures. I have in the past and presently now, am getting the work done at Tufts Dental School in Boston, Ma. to have it be more cost effective. It takes a lot longer to get through the whole process, extra driving, etc. but again, less money. I would be ever so grateful for any help you could offer; and thank you so very, very much.
