Hi, my name is David and I am 27 years old. My teeth have been failing for over 10 years, and just recently started getting really bad. To the point of full extractions and denture/implant procedure. 8 of my teeth are severely broken from cavities and decay, all the rest have some form of decay and tartar damage. Advanced periodontal disease from gingivitis early on and untreated. I have only been to a dentist once when I was really little. My parents never took care of their teeth, thus never wanting to take me growing up. I should have took it upon myself after being able to legally work and providing for myself. But turns out, dental work is extremely expensive once its to the point it is now, and never been able to catch up enough money to pay for it. Ive been slowly trying to save for a out of country dental procedure to try and relieve some of the expenses. I am only a part of the way though given my procedure will be upwards of $10,000 out of country! Im ashamed of my teeth, and how poorly ive taken care of them. To the point where nobody knows the true extent of how bad they actually are. I know if I was open and honest early on, this couldve been avoidable. Im never one to ask for handouts, and always doing what I can to give to those less fortunate. Just really out of options and am afraid that I let my dental problems go too far and maybe starting to affect with general health and well being. If there is anyone at all who reads this, and understands the situation I am in. I please ask of you to donate whatever you can. I need this more than anybody could imagine. I feel like I am now in a race to save my own life, but limited by money unfortunately. Thank you to whoever takes the time to read this. As ive stated my procedure is around $10,000 and I know how much money it actually is. But any donation at all will get me closer to the care I really need.
