Good News!

I'm so happy!  I had an appointment with a dentist.  For months, I've been worried about my teeth. Because of my disability, I have ground my teeth involuntarily for years.  My teeth, especially the bottom row, have been terribly eroded. 

I wasn't sure what, if anything, could be done to fix the problem.  I thought maybe tooth implants or crowns, but I was doubtful. 

However, my doubts were for naught.  The dentist told me that it was entirely possible, albeit very expensive, ($40,000!) to build up my teeth by using implants; crowns; fillings; and root canal.  When I brought up the fact that I live on a fixed income, the dentist told me that there were programs at dental school offered reduced rates for people like me.

I'm so happy! Sure, I'm worried about how I'll afford it all, but I'm hopeful and happy!
