Hey everyone ! I really hate to ask money but right it is quite hard and I never get the chance to pay for retainers due to the lack of money. It is also hard at homes and we don’t have enough money there as well, I am trying my best to get some good money to get out of this debts. I usually never ask:( I tried to get the most money than I can and I am still trying my best. Hopefully I can get some help. Thank you so much for your generosity. Any amount is very well appreciated!
Hi everyone. I am in a desperate state of affairs. I’ve lost numerous teeth over the past few years due to teeth breaking off to the gum line and dental disease. I’ve come to the point in the last few months that I am having extreme difficulty eating food. This is due to fact that I don’t have any jaw teeth to chew with. I’ve lost 70 lbs in the last year mostly due to the extreme difficulty of chewing food. Therefore I skip a lot of meals.
I need to raise enough money to be able to go to a dentist and get full denture implants. Both upper and lower dentures.
I have been on disability pension for the past four years. I have suffered from anxiety and depression for the past 25 years. This forced me out of the workforce and onto disability pension after working for 20+ years. I am not receiving enough to live off much less pay bills. I am living way below the poverty line at $12,000 a year. When rent is $800 a month you can see I’m indire straits.
It takes a lot for a person like myself who has a lot of pride to have the strength to reach out for help. And if I had family that cared then I wouldn’t be here begging. But unfortunately my family cares less. All four siblings ostracized me four years ago after my Dad passed away. I still today have never been given a reason why. My mom passed away 7 years ago. It would hurt anybody to be cut out of the family. But toss in anxiety and depression into the mix and you can see how difficult it is for me.
I know a lot of people simply don’t care. Or people have their own financial problems. It difficult during this pandemic for all of us. These are unprecedented times. It is very stressful for all of us. But some of us are in dire straits. I know there are numerous people out there that do care. They understand how difficult it is for some people. People who find themselves in difficult financial states for no fault of their own. Then things like major dental issues are thrown at them. How can I or anyone else in a similar situation cope or handle this situation? Well if they are like me they let these dental issues slide and ignore them because they can’t afford them. But unfortunately for myself it’s caught up with me. I gotten to the point where I am having tremendous difficulty trying to chew food and eat. I mean eating is essential to life. Smiling or a good smile is a side benefit of having good teeth. But for me it’s the ability to chew and eat that’s most important.
I don’t have any dental insurance or a good paying job to afford the high cost of dental work, appointments, and dentures or implants. I am hoping that some of you can find it in your hearts to help me out with getting the dental work done. Thanks in advance for any donation. It is greatly appreciated my friends. Take Care and stay Covid Safe.
I cannot believe I am actually posting this on a public forum but I have zero other choice. I am a 37 year old mother of two absolutely gorgeous daughters, inside and out. When I was pregnant with my oldest, who will be 13 in August, I began having terrible mouth/teeth pains. My dentist said that all of my body’s calcium was now going to my baby and I was, for lack of a better word…screwed. By the time I gave birth I already had 3 teeth die. Yes, turned gray and died. One back tooth and the other two dead in front. I just dealt with it as best I could with what I could afford. Then, three years later I got pregnant with twin boys. They were fine up until a day before my due date, when I went into early labor. I ended up giving birth in my bathroom to two beautiful, silent, stillborn angels. I still have not dealt with that horrific loss. I try to push it away but it always comes creeping back. I honestly do not even know how to properly grieve. Two years after that, I was pregnant with my youngest, who just turned 8 on March 16th. She was my miracle. Born 6 weeks early and weighed a teensie tiny 4 lbs 4 oz, she was perfect. After a month in the NICU, she was healthy enough to bring home.
Fast forward to today. I have exactly 3 of my real teeth in my mouth, 18 broken fragments, and 2 implants. It all happened so fast and got so out of control. I have always been told I was attractive and I kind of believe it…only because my daughters are just plain beautiful. They deserve a mother that they can be proud of and not ashamed to be seen with. In my heart I know they would never judge me like that, but can you blame them? When my oldest was growing up I was so involved in her school and everything else and it just breaks my heart seeing my youngest miss out on having the “Fun and Cool Mom” but then again, she was so young she probably doesn’t even remember that version of me. All she has ever known is the shut-in, low self esteem version of me. I don’t do anything anymore. I hardly ever used to leave my house, only to get groceries (what few things I can actually chew). Until the pandemic hit and everyone was mandated to wear a mask, I refused to go anywhere in public.
I am sick and tired of living this way. I am watching my children grow up with a sad, depressed excuse for a mother and it kills me more and more each day,
I would do anything to be able to go to family get togethers, school programs, Christmas, Church on Sunday and all of the things I have been avoiding because I was too scared of embarrassing my girls. Deep down, I know they want me healthy but could careless what I looked like…they just want their mother back.
More than anything in this world—I want to be able to smile again.
My wife needs a root canal, and
a crown. Her parents were medically negligent growing up, and wouldn’t even get her wisdom teeth out for her because they decided that if they waited until she was out of the house that it would be her financial burden, not theirs.
She finally got her wisdom teeth out, but because of the negligence, she needs a root canal now, and a crown. We used up our insurance, and now can’t afford the root canal
and crown. They quoted us at 2800 for all of that which we just don’t have. She’s in pain all the time. Please help!
Hi, I hope everyone is having a good day.
I come from a very small town and I lived with my grandmother, who was a woman who had no education, did not know how to read or write, and it is not her fault that she grew up like this. Well the town dentist comes Alternative Saturdays. you can imagine the whole town trying to see the dentist. Well, a dentist without a heart. I remember that I was 10 years old and my front tooth have a cavity in the middle of my two big tooth. when I came to see and The dentist removed my four front teeth. 😭there my nightmare began because my life changed completely. The bridge kept falling off me every so often and I had to go around waiting for the Evelio dentist to come to put it back on and so the years went by I couldn’t smile I couldn’t eat very well because the bridge was always loose.
When I arrived in this country. finally, I was able to change the which bridge but then dentist Makenit to yellow . I always had the worse dentist is like they don’t care about the patients is all about the money. I had I infection. I swollen a Crown. After years I have to change the bridge again and this time the dentist left it crooked. The dentist is ok my molar out and didn’t tell me to replacement I was ignored I admitted and years past with out a molars now the really problem begins.
now I have a lot of problems eating because I have no moler on my left bottom side and my right top side and the bone has worn out so now I need surgery to put more bone and be able to put a denture to help me eat. with that comes they have to fix the bite of my mouth because it is bent. I have to replace a lot of my dentures that have been there for years and that are badly placed and that is why it gives me pain in my jaw, I never thought it was because of that. the dentist that I found is very good dentist but Super expensive, finally, to be able to eat without pain and to be able to smile without feeling ashamed. the cost is $ 50,000 to do the entire procedure.
If someone can help me I would be so thankful.
I believe in karma, it helps without waiting and you will see that one way or another your goodwill will come back to you. 🙏🙏🙏
I have a major infection which is causing bone disease and I need to pull out all of my teeth. I will be getting dentures but need a little help with it. I need around 10,000 to help. Anything would be appreciated. Thank you so much. My PayPal is PayPal.me/sexyscorpio
Hello, my name is Patrick. I’m 31, scraping by on unemployment (thanks covid) but don’t want to die. My teeth haven’t been checked much since I was a teen and are getting to the point of unusable. I’m working on getting insurance but will likely need major surgery soon.
I do NOT like to ask for handouts but, I’d rather not be in medical debt for the rest of my life. If I could have things my way: I would receive 30k (for the surgeries and dentures) from some very generous people who’ll never ask for it back. If there is any left after, I’d put it to charity. Please. Generosity begets generosity and I love helping people. If you can spare anything to help me please send through paypal.me/notzeldaslink, cashapp $zeldaslink and if you’re still reading: I hope you’re doing well. Don’t forget to love and take care of yourself
I need help getting my teeth fixed. I have 2 in front with big holes and my top wisdom teeth are falling apart. They’re starting to hurt a lot and there’s no way I can afford to fix them, no coverage I can afford right now and no one I can ask for help at the moment.
I’m currently working 2 jobs, one full time 44 hours a week and the other part time about 20 hours a week. There’s not much else for work available around me and I’m taking a business management course at the same time to try and get a better paying job. With all my bills; rent, power, car payment, car insurance, repairs, student loan, prescription insurance, prescriptions, gas money.. half the time I don’t bother with groceries and just get rice.
I also have an autoimmune condition called Lichen Planus, it affects my skin all over and makes it hard to live normally. I have to use steroid cream on my arms almost every day so I’m not scratching through my skin. Stress makes it worse, like any other illness really.. trying to get some help to make things easier.
I work reception and, along with hurting, my teeth look really bad. I would really appreciate any help anyone could give. I want to start with getting the front ones fixed because every time anything gets caught there I can’t open my mouth it hurts so much, and when it gets cold it’s horrible. Canada is bad for cold teeth lol
I can’t find any cheap dental coverage around here and don’t have much other choice but to ask for help. There’s no one I can ask because of everything going on with covid and people losing work. I’ve been laid off twice already because of it, but for now we’re allowed to be open. I hate asking anyone for anything, but I don’t have much choice now.
Anything I get I’ll be putting aside in savings until I have enough to get my teeth fixed. I try to put $20 a week in savings, but that’s usually when something decides to let go on my car. Only have about $50 saved at the moment and it’ll cost hundreds to fix the mess my mouth is.
Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. I understand if no one can or wants to help, no harm in asking right?

I only read a couple of the other posts on this site, hopefully this is set up right.
I never pictured myself in this situation and I am embarrassed and ashamed of myself. This is not a joke, but I unfortunately got too many of my horrible father’s genetics and he is English. An orthodontist in my childhood compared my teeth to both of my parents and he said that I have the same teeth as my British father. I use prescription toothpaste and brush and floss twice every day. I keep up on 6 month dental cleanings, which I pay for out-of-pocket.
I am crying as I type this because my teeth, regardless of how well I take care of them, are rotting out of my head. I AM ONLY 33 YEARS OLD 😫😫😭😭 but I’ve already had countless root canals, I’ve had multiple teeth pulled, 2 being very important teeth so I need 2 implants which cost approximately $3-5k each! And that’s only the stuff I currently am aware of. Did I mention that the father of mine who gave me these horrible teeth also molested and raped me starting when I was 6? Yeah…that continued until I was about 12 years old. It hurts to think about all the ways my father has been able to hurt me; from genetics to incest. This is what I get for existing.
I’ll NEVER be able to make enough money to afford all the dental work I need done. I am desperate for any amount of help. Please 🙏🏼 I don’t have any other options and I need the dental work done as soon as possible so my other teeth do not shift out of place, also.
Please, if you can help me with even $5, you would be a blessing to me. Please help? 😔
Hi there, my name is Jeremy I’m 43 and I need your help. My teeth both bottom and top jaw need replacing, The start of 2020 I was half way to my total , hoping to have the full total start of 2021 and have a new me. But disaster struck. Not once but twice, my mum got sick 2nd of January and was airlifted 400km away to a emergency care hospital. I took time off work to be with her. Being there for 5 days, the doctors said she was doing well. So I made the decision to come home on the 6th of January. On the 7th I went to work holding out hope mum was gonna be okay. When I received a phone call at work that my 18 year old step son had just hung himself. It was an unbearable pain. I raced to my wife and to see her hugging his lifeless body was more then I could take. All this going on with mum still in intensive care for her condition. When my brother rang up. Said there is nothing they can do. If you want to see mum 1 last time, I better come back. So I did the 4 hour trip. Told my mum I loved her. Sat with her for the day, told her of the tragedy . I told her I couldn’t stay. Had to get back to be by my partners side. Mum was okay , she understood. We had to grief and make funeral arrangements, make sense of everything that happened, was no signs, no hints that this was going through Graham’s head. Dead 3 months after turning 18. Anyway leaving the hospital. Was given good news by doctors that they were confident that a procedure on mum would fix her up. So I left with hope that she would be okay. My mums a fighter. That night I got a phone call from my brother saying mum wasn’t strong enough for the operation. And that that they will just make her comfortable until she dies. That happened on 14th of January exactly 1 week after Graham’s suicide. So money I had saved for all on 4 teeth replacement, went towards funeral costs, taking time off work, etc. Then covid 19 struck and its been a financial nightmare for me ever since. Unable to get any loans and my teeth so bad. I can’t even enjoy simple things in life like eating an apple, chewing finger nails, eating nuts. I’m pleading for help. My self esteem is at an all time low, I get anxiety around people, scared they are just staring at my horrible mouth. And I get teased at my workplace for my missing, cracked decayed teeth. I just want a better life, a more confident me, if you think you could help please please donate to
Hello, my name is Samantha and I am in need of a front tooth. I was born without my lateral incisor on my right side. My maternal grandparents paid for my elder sister and I to get braces when we were young. I was only in the fourth grade when I received mine, which is too young for braces. My dentist at the time left my braces on me until I was in the seventh grade and needless to say I’ve had dental issues most of my life. The biggest issue I’ve had is my missing tooth. He created a retainer with a tooth attached and I’d had it for fifteen years. Yes, fifteen years with the same retainer. When it finally gave out, I visited a local dentist and had a Marilyn bridge done. With the gap being so small I’ve had nothing but issue after issue with it popping out completely. I had to pay out of pocket for it, which was about $700 total. The porcelain is now cracking on the wings of the tooth to where I won’t be able to re-fix it any longer. I found a new dentist that can give me a sturdy new option. The tooth next to the gap will be ground down and a cap placed on with a veneer and another tooth attached to it. This way it will be sturdy, and I will not have to worry about my tooth constantly coming out. Unfortunately, my insurance will not cover the procedure at all as they list it as “cosmetic”. The procedure will cost the whole amount of between $2,500 and $3,500. This is well beyond my realm of ability. I currently work as a Military Move Manager and having a high self-esteem and presentation is extremely important to me for this job. I have tried to work out a payment plan with my dentist and the best they can do is paying half at the first appointment and the other half at the second appointment. I have tried everything, from trying to get a loan to contacting my dental insurance and nothing has borne any fruit. I hate to ask for money, but this is my last option. At this point my tooth is no longer able to stay put without superglue, and this only lasts for about 3 days. I would eternally appreciate any help at all with this.

Let me start by saying thank you for reading. I currently have about 4,000 dollars of dental work I need done. At least 3 root canals with crowns and about 4 fillings. I have been paying monthly to pay off previous work the Dentist graciously did but I’m still about $1,300 away from paying that off. In total to get my dental health taken care of, I am about $5,000 away. This is WITH insurance. I’ve always known dental health is important to every day health and I just want to be able to pay off what I owe and be able to finish the work I need. With Covid-19 I’ve been furloughed and unable to work while I stay home and watch my room mates children who are virtual schooling. I’ve gotten to the point where I’m now further in debt, and can no longer afford rent and get my dental work done. Any help is appreciated.
I know this is a long shot but I really am trying everything I can to get help with fixing my teeth. My whole life I’ve grown up with crooked and uneven teeth. I grew up with kids making fun of me and not wanting to be my friend because of the way my teeth looked and they always told me that I look like a shark or a vampire. It made me go home and cry everyday. I always asked my parents how come my teeth looked this way and how come I couldn’t go to the dentist to get better teeth like all the other kids. They told me they were very sorry that the kids picked on me for it but they couldn’t do anything about it because we had a hard time affording things already as it was.
This went along years and years and I didn’t have friends growing up. At 14 years of age I even started my first job and helped my parents pay bills so we wouldn’t get kicked out and live on the street because my father was now getting sick and couldn’t work really and it got worse over the years. We struggled more and more everyday and seeing him getting more and more sick I couldn’t just sit there and see my family like that. He passed away in 2015 and my mother was left in a lot of debt because of the struggle along with myself. I got jumped and beat up over and over again over the years and my teeth got worse. Chipped and more and more crooked. I had to go to the hospital because I was in so much pain from it and it left myself in debt with hospital bills. I hated even leaving the house because people would look and me and see my teeth and would just give me this look. I’ve gone to the dentist and they went through a bunch of listing in which it would cost me way too much to even do anything. I’ve been trying to save money to try to do anything I can but I’ve been having money taken out of my check and my wages garnished from my paychecks in order to pay of debts so I havnt been able to even save up anything. I can barely survive paycheck to paycheck. I got kicked out of my girlfriend of 4 years after she found someone else who she says is better than me. I had no where else to go but back with my mom and pay her for rent to stay with her. When I’m at work people say I need to smile more and then when they see my teeth they go oh now I see why you don’t. I’ve had to walk away and cry at times because people were so mean to me about it. I still to this day can’t even really go out in public without people asking what’s wrong with my teeth and why I don’t just don’t get them fixed. I still have people make fun of me when I go out. I’m depressed everyday. It hurts not feeling normal and being neglected from people for something I can’t help. I look in the mirror and just want to have a better smile some day. I’ve worked so hard to fix my life already over the years and try not to let it bother me but even when I look at my mouth it makes me so upset and depressed feeling like I’m so ugly. I can’t even smile in a picture because I hate it so much and afraid more and more people will just bring me down and make fun of me. I’m really goofing I can really get the help. I’ve been trying for years and years doing research on how I can try to get help but haven’t been able to find anything so I’m hoping this time something good will happen for me. I pray everyday for a miracle so please.
God Bless everyone,
I don’t know how to start this post but I feel God spoke to my heart and told me to leave the pride aside. I don’t think is about pride because I am a humble person. I just don’t know how to ask because I never ask. I have been a very hardworking independent person. I am a Licensed Practical Nurse that every time i needed something I would work overtime as much as I could until been able to get what I needed. Unfortunately now I can’t. I have been working my full time job and taking care of my 78 years old mom at home who had a femur fracture after a fall 10 months ago on Christmas Day.
I just feel embarrassed of my situation at this moment. But I will go ahead with my eyes closed and my heart open. I just turned 50 last month. I have come a long way building my self esteem back in the last 5 years. I was overweighted, with low self esteem. Thanks to God I got the wisdom and strength to work on those areas. I was feeling happy about myself more than ever before. In the past years I have been loosing my back teeth. I was ok with it because no one could see them. Then, I lost one in the right side but I was ok too because I could hide it and smile with the other side. But this past week I lost one in the front left side while eating almonds and the other one next to the front teeth two very loose. I went to the dentist and they gave me the sad new that all of my upper teeth need to be pull out and all the ones in the bottom except 2 also. So they told me I need a full denture in the top and a partial in the bottom. The total treatment plan fee is $8,654, my insurance cover $3,083 + $952. But I still have to pay out of my pocket $4,619.00 which I don’t have. I work and live paycheck by paycheck to pay my mortgage, car expenses and house expenses. I just want to be able to smile freely again!😭 Now we are wearing masks, but what’s going to happen when this is over, my smile is what brings peace and comfort to my patients. Christmas is coming and I won’t be able to smile next to my grandkids. It’s so frustrating!
I feel so embarrassed about all this. I have proof of my estimated treatment plan totals. I have my pictures also, but it only allowed me to post one picture here, so I posted only the cost page.
Thank you for reading this and God Bless the ones that can help others.🥰
Hoping and praying that God send me an angel to help me.
