DENTAL AND HEALTH UPDATE:
For those curious and following along, I require some major dental surgery and Costa Rica is the place to have it done, since dental insurance and affordability is not something accessible here.
I have a plan and quote from the Doctor in Costa Rica for a life-changing procedure.
Two trips are required, for health reasons as well as cosmetic, he proposed taking everything out and installing permanent appliances upper and lower. I fully agree with his assessment since infection is a present and continuing issue and attaching anything to what I have won’t have durability.
He sent me more details than I will present here
“UPPER
Teeth Extractions $0 (all)
6 Two Piece (one stage mode) Dental Implants at $500 each, total cost: $3,000
1 FIXED Bridge made out Full Zirconium Crowns, total cost: $5,400
Temporary teeth ( you wear them while we build permanents): $500 (regardless of the number of sets needed determined by me and only during your stay)
Bone Grafts: $500
Total for upper: $ 9,400
LOWER
Teeth Extractions $0 (all)
6 Two Piece (one stage mode) Dental Implants at $500 each, total cost: $3,000
1 FIXED Bridge made out Full Zirconium Crowns at $450 each, total cost $5,400
Temporary teeth ( you wear them while we build permanents): $500 (regardless of the number of sets needed determined by me and only during your stay)
Bone Grafts: $500
Total for Lower: $ 9,400
Other costs:
Crown Build Ups $0 (regardless of quantity and number needed)
Gum Recontouring: $0 (regardless of quantity and number needed
Consultation and Examination, CT SCAN, Panoramic x-rays, PAx-rays, study models: $100
(you pay only once regardless of quantity and number of visits needed)
GRAND TOTAL: $ 18,900 (regardless of material selected for your case)
Time For Completion Of Your Specific Case:
In order to complete the procedures accordingly we require that you come to Costa Rica for two visits:
Visit number one:
We extract proposed teeth, place dental implants, place and cement a fixed set of high-quality temporary teeth, then you go home.
This will require a visit of 5 working days mínimum
FOUR MONTHS LATER AFTER YOUR FIRST VISIT
Visit number two:
We remove temps and build the new permanent teeth, this requires a few sessions for fittings and conjunction work with you and our Dental Lab.
This will require a visit of 9 working days mínimum
These costs are without costs for travel, food, lodging. I would like to remind everyone the dentist here quoted me $3500 to put a crown on ONE TOOTH!
To be “safe” and account for unexpected issues, I think the entire cost will end up around $24,000.
Locally, this would be in the $80K range.
SO – there will be tooth-related adventures coming up, toothy kickstarters, a GoFundMe, and some new products. I am investing in a laser cutter / burner and creating cool wood based D&D stuff.
I will tag everything benefitting this life changing surgery with #FangQuest hashtag to secretly identify it as a project whose profits go to resolve this health crisis I am facing.
This is not just a cosmetic issue, my local and remote dentist have affirmed that this is my path forward to maintain good health.
I want to live long enough to know my grandchildren and teach them to be artists. I need help here, but I am not fishing for hand outs.
When you see the #FangQuest hashtag I need you all to share the links, to super-fund these projects. I will also be helping my friends (Aptly named the Crystal Gems) with their own journeys to get work done.
I’m not even asking you for money, just share the link to these projects coming up. If you can’t donate or contribute, it’s fine. nothing changes. sharing a link is better than money.
IF you have been to a Costa Rican dentist, I am eager to hear your experiences thoughts and opinions. If you have no first-hand experience with it, I’m hard-of-hearing.
Thank you all for the support, encouragement.
THIS is STEP ONE on a grand adventure and a big journey. THIS is where Bilbo steps across his threshold at Bag-end.
THIS is where I set off with Gandalf.
