More Info

Jill's lifelong challenge of periodontal issues has resulted in severe bone loss, despite quality care for decades.  Surgery to remove all of her teeth was imperative in November in order to have enough bone left for the placement of 12 titanium implants.  After a recovery period of approximately 4 months, these implants will support permanently fixed dentures.  No donation is too small. Every bit helps! 

Financial Facts:  Surgery(teeth removal and implants) $18,000,Temporary Dentures: $2,000, Permanent Dentures: $30,000, Total Debt:  $50,000.  

Jill's current yearly income is less than the entire cost of her new set of permanent teeth, and the dental insurance covers only $3,000 of the total.  She is selling her car which will bring in about $5,000 and hoping not to have to sell her house, but is prepared to so do. 

In Jill's case, implants are medically recommended one conventional dentures for the following reasons:

1) Implant-supported dentures will replace tooth roots, and the bone is better preserved.  With conventional dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth roots begins to resorb (deteriorate) and results in a collapsed jaw.

2) These specific dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.

3)  Implants usually last a lifetime; failure rates are less than 5 percent.

Thank you so much in advance for your generosity.  Large or small, Jill, we know will be eternally grateful.
