*hugg* It sure is good to hear from you. You and Scarred be sure to make room for bumblebees and I. We will be right over!
Gosh, I am so terribly sorry to hear of your teeth. My heart hurts for you. I really do understand. Not good, not good atall. My dental reconstruction was a nightmare. The General Dentist, Lab Tech, Surgeon and Shading Specialist all donated their time and facilities...yet I still had to pay close to 11,000 "materials". My insurance only covered 2,500. what a joke!
I know you need the work done, but I worry some... Are you going to be taking the medications in the future? If so, you might just want to go with the root canal. If you do go with the root and cap, and your teeth are still breaking after all that, I highly recommend Mini implant system. Astra Tech is fantastic.
Also, while I was waiting on the endocrinologist to get the Hypoparathyroidism and Parathyroid absorption under control (took 6mo before I was cleared to have surgery) I was perscribed this paste.. humm lemme go find it, think I still have the tube... Here! Ha ha, cant believe still have it. Called "Prevident 5000 Pls Cre Colg." It was supposed to help slow down the crumbling but it didnt work very well because my medical problems clashing with one another turned out to be the cause. In any case it might help to buy you a little time or slow down the damage.
I hope you are able to get everything done. Dental pain, on top of everything else, just isnt fair. Its terribly draining to boot. Try to rest as much as you can. Of course you are in our prayers here
