HI MY NAME IS ADISU,I HAVE BEEN LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES FOR THE LAST 18 YEARS.
6 YEARS AGO SOMEHOW I DEVELOPED A GUM DISEASE AND BEFORE I START TAKING CARE OF IT MY MOM GOT SICK AND I HAVE TO GO TO MY OLD COUNTRY TO VISIT HER.
IN MY STAY OF 4 MONTHS, HER CONDITION WAS GETTING WORSE SO I HAD TO SPEND ALL I HAVE AND MORE BORROWING FROM FRIENDS.
IN THE MEAN TIME,I HAD A 4 AND 1 YEARS OLD CHILDREN AND A MORTGAGE, SO I HAD TO COME BACK.
WHILE I AM STRUGGLING TO CATCHUP WITH MY BILLS MY MOM PASSED AWAY. BY THIS TIME THE GUM DISEASE WAS GETTING WORSE, STARTS LOOSING ONE BY ONE UP TO 4.
THE GRIEF OF MY MOM’S DEATH, THE PRESSURE OF BILLS AND EVERYTHING BECOMES UNBEARABLE PUT ME IN A DIFFERENT STATE OF MIND.
THE MISSING TEETH MADE ME LOOK A LOT OLDER THAN MY ACTUAL AGE . I STOP SMILING LOST CONFIDENCE AND HOPE… THEN DIVORCED…
IN THE MEAN TIME, EVERY TIME I AM TRYING TO GET BACK TO MY FEET STARTED TO TAKE CARE OF MY MISSING TOOTH, THE COSTS BECOME UNTOUCHABLE, THEN I WILL GIVE UP. BECAUSE OF THIS I DIDN’T WANNA GO TO MY COUNTRY TO SEE MY SIBLINGS, BECAUSE I AM AFRAID TO FACE THE SHOCKING LOOK I HAD TO FACE. EVERY TIME MY PICTURES ARE TAKEN I MAKE SURE THEY HAD TO EDIT ME OUT OR MAKE SURE MY PICTURES ARE NOT SLIPPING OUT TO MY FAMILY BUT NOW I FOUND LOVE AND PLAN TO GET MARRIED AGAIN, BUT I AM HOLDING THE WEDDING,POSTPONING THE WEDDING COMING UP WITH EXCUSE WHEN THE TRUTH WAS I DON’T WANT TO DO IT BECAUSE I CAN’T SMILE FOR THE CAMERA AND IT IS PUTTING A STRAIN IN MY RELATIONSHIP.
You can get your smile back!
Thank you for your submission to the contest. Loose teeth as a result of gum disease is certainly a problem, have you gone to a periodontist to see if they can help? It would be pointless to do any dental work to save your existing teeth, or to place implants, if the gum disease is not looked at first.
It would be best to see a periodontist as soon as possible, they may be able to help you, and do so at a reasonable cost. Of course a cheap dentist these days is not very common, but treating the gum disease should be the first step, and you may find that it is quite affordable. We can certainly do the treatment for you as well, but it may take a while for the treatment before we can do the dental implants.
Good luck to you, and you are in the running for the free dental implants!
