still taking it a step at a time

The dental appt today gave me a better idea of what's ahead. The tooth can be saved. So that's number one. Root canal, then lengthening cap, something like that. The cap part is $850 all by itself. After the root canal and cap, either a new bridge or two implants for the missing teeth. Implants are, of course, much more expensive, but one way to look at it is that it is highly likely that I will need them later, so maybe now is a good time to get them. Maintaining the teeth will also be easier with implants.

Now I need to do more figuring about money. It looks like the thing is to get a large loan for this work, cover it all. But I can think of no place that would give me a large loan. I will keep working on this.
