A few years ago, I had a bad Seizure, While I was out
Which resulted in the loss of, 3 Bottom Teeth, And Crack 2 Top Teeth,
My Epilepsy causes me to have Grand Mals,
Which have been quite bad at times, This time being one of them.
Sometimes I've no memory of up to 2 weeks before it,
When I went to the Dentist , He said a Pallet wasn't an option, Due to the danger of possibly having a Grand Mal while wearing it, And it becoming stuck in my throat, Which i knew anyway, because i'd almost swallowed my tongue and hurt it quite bad in the past.
So A Temporary Bridge and Caps were the first to try,
Over about a year I felt it loosening the teeth either side of it,
So now Basically, What teeth I have left are knackered,
The Only Option U Have Is Implants.
Which I Know at the price they are , I'll Never Be Able to Afford,
This Made Me Paranoid, I Suffer With Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Which Became Worse.
Never going out anywhere incase anyone saw me.
And Very Depressed, I Wont have my pictures taken, I hate how i look to people
My GP came to my home last year,And said that she was Referring me on Medical Grounds,
To get the treatment needed at The Dental Hospital
We Looked Up The Reasons Why You Would Be Refared For The Implants On NHS,
The Reasons Being.....
1. Missing More Than Half Of Teeth On "EITHER", Your Top Or Bottom Jaw..
2. Missing Over Half Your Teeth Before The Age Of 40
3. It Can Be Confirmed In Writing That All Other Methods Had Been Tried To Fix The Problem,
4. Or If It's Proved To Be Having An Affect To My Health And Living On A Day To Day Basis And Continue To Do So If Left As They Are
I Don't Just Come Under 1..I Come Under All 4 Of Them,
I'm Not Only Missing A Few On The Top Or Bottom Of My Mouth,
I've Been Missing Almost All Of Them, By The Time I Was 38.
I Can't Wear Removables, Through Risk Of Choking
I Just want to be able to talk without covering my face, Smile on a picture with my daughter,Go up to her school, Things what are normal everyday things to other people, But things i cant do
When I went to The Dental Hospital, The Dentist wasn't nice at all.
He said, I Wasn't Suitable for Implants, Because I Hadn't Had Cancer Of The Mouth, Or Had Suffered Severe Trauma,
Due To Being In An Accident .,
That's were I'm stuck at , It was My GP s First Time Dealing With Dentists, She Also Was Shocked That Medical Issues Meant Nothing When It Came To Treatments And Dentists, She said whatever she can do, She will do
Has Anyone Any Information Of Other Ways To Go About This Please ?
