After reading all the Posts on this thread, I can only think of two words, “DENTAL IMPLANTS”.
Perhaps we should have a one time FR Fundraiser.
You know dental implants run about $3500 per tooth, plus extra for bone grafts, or any titanium infrastructure that might be needed beyond just getting the posts. I know someone who just spent $80,000 dollars on them.
I'm sure Obamacare will pay for it, though. On second thought, just floss religiously, don't smoke, and do not grind your teeth, and maybe you won"t ever need implants.
I am missing 10 top teeth and 4 on the bottom. Last cash quote I had was 3500 a pop..
Do the math.
I hate dentures.. but I do dust them off when I need to impress someone.
I am not even 40 yet. Lost um due to being a bit stupid (poor care) but mainly a wrench to the face when I was an auto mechanic. Shop lacked work comp insurance (and a business now.. but I digress) my medical patched up my lip so nice you can’t tell, pulled the damaged teeth, bought me a plate and said “enjoy!”
At $3,500 a tooth?
