Things gotten worse as I aged, and then I decided to see the ortho-surgeon near where I live. My dentist, Michael, he took several X-Rays on my jaws. The verdict was what's the previous dentist had done was not right and he skipped a few important steps and I better get them treated now instead causing more trouble in decades to come. Michael and I sit together going thru my jaw images, and he explained what's wrong and how to deal with it. We then schedule a set of procedures in sequences and projecting how much will it cost me (before my private health insurance covers for worst case scenario). At least I had money for the rainy days since I work and save.
Seven gum surgeries, three canals on one tooth in 12 appointments. the canals had to wait as the surgeries are considered to be a more pressing issues and they will require substantial healing time. The first 6 months since the first surgery began, I had four gum and root surgeries. They didn't show any good healing progress that the rest of procedures had to wait. The following three procedures gradually done in one year stretch then the canal procedures finally started last month after long wait for the roots and gum to heals. And today, Finally the whole long daunting dental procedure journey come to an end. I will only see him on six monthly period for cleaning and check up. Hopefully these teeth will sit properly on my jaw and not running around even tilting upside down and be settle. Cross fingers...
