I know that this is not Thyroid related but I want to get some information if I can. I will ask that any replies giving information re any particular Dental Practice or fees not be printed on here but mailed to me privately.
I am at present severely financially strapped. Right at the wrong time my fantastic front teeth three unit Bridgework of over twenty years decided to break. Thinking that I just had to get a replacement on my dental insurance I went happily off to the Dentist knowing that I could get a replacement. Wrong....! Underneath the bridgework the posts had dissolved away and the only answer is Implants !!! The Dental consultant has told me that I will have to pay £9000 !!! I can't ! I cannot tolerate a plastic denture so for months now I have been staying indoors ! I am very very unhappy and stressed and isolated.. All my life I have paid for my Bridgework, I have responsibly been insured, paying monthly for 25 years. Now I need it I can't get help. The Dental insurance that I have doesn't cover this and neither does of course the NHS.
So, my only option is to try abroad but of course I am too scared to do that as you never know who to trust, that's why I'm making this plea. Can anyone offer any advice?
