Hi, I'm Aurim and I'd like to share my story.

The first problems related to teeth started already in childhood. As I remember yesterday, I experienced an unpleasant incident with dentists, after which I began to be terrified of them. Driven by this fear, I tried to take care of my teeth in such a way that I would not have to return to the doctors. Years passed, but my efforts weren't enough to keep my teeth healthy, I felt like my teeth kept hurting and "informing" me. Because of the acquired fear, I was afraid to go to specialists, until finally I felt that chewing harder food was becoming more and more difficult, and after a while I had to give it up altogether. Eventually the front tooth fell out and the adjacent teeth became mobile. I understand that it is only a matter of time before they fall out too. Currently, it is becoming difficult to chew even softer food, and I experience intermittent toothaches. I feel constant discomfort - I'm ashamed to smile, I'm ashamed to speak because the conversation has become unclear, I'm ashamed in front of colleagues, children. After overcoming my fears and realizing that this cannot continue, I decided to go to a dental clinic for an examination and a treatment plan. The doctor diagnosed the melting bone and ordered the removal of all upper jaw teeth that should be replaced by implants. The calculated amount of treatment is, unfortunately, beyond my financial means. I really want to enjoy a beautiful smile again, feel full and be able to chew food again. I hope you will help make my dream come true! thank you
