Hello, I am a single mother of two wonderful daughters. I work two jobs to pay for our house and living expenses. Recently my daughter was finally given the answer she has been waiting for from her dentist that she now able to get braces, which she has been asking for the last three years for. So we made the appointment for the consult with the orthodontist and we got a yes also they she was ready. But to my surprise our insurance does not cover it which I was not aware of but the fine print was it only covered the consult. So they went over a payment plan with me and I have no problem paying the monthly fee of 87.00 a month but I can not cover the down payment of 1800.00 which covers her xrays, two teeth pulled and the put on of the braces. I feel horrible because it was very disappointing to my daughter when I told her she would have to wait until I can save up that amount. And when she asked me how long it broke my heart to tell her I am not sure because things are already tight with money. So as a proud mother, I am choosing to put my pride to the side and ask for help for my daughter. Please anything to get closer to the amount of the down payment helps. Thank you for reading this and bless you all.
Hello and to anyone reading this.
I never thought I would ever be in a position to beg for money it is embarrassing and humiliating. I am a single mum raising 3 children. I am used to going without, but unfortunately I find myself in a situation where I simply cannot go without, the pain is unbearable. Once my kids were older I trained in nursing, I was so happy to have a job I loved and all was well until my back just gave out one day at work. I got nothing from it other then a bad back for life, surgery and being on a disability pension.
Because of all the drugs (prescription) that I took for my back combined with gum disease my teeth have deteriorated to a state that I have been advised by many many dentist that they should ALL be removed. I was mortified, devastated and I have been clinically depressed ever since. Having full dentures at my age is a living nightmare. I cannot afford dental treatment of any kind. If I go through the public health system I have to be without ANY teeth for 12+ months before they could give me dentures. I feel like giving up on life altogether, its always been so hard, never having much of anything always struggling but all those things together with no teeth is more then I can bear.
I have tried every way possible to get a loan of any sort but nobody will lend me any money as I am on a disability pension. I would be happy to borrow the money I need and pay it back but have no friends or family who can help, believe me I have asked everyone I know. I am in so much pain from decayed/abcessess teeth that I am almost going crazy, I am desperate for any help I can get. I would be happy to share with anyone pictures, letters from dentists anything they need to see I am very sincere and honest. I have been suicidal over this, living with great pain, not only my back but now my teeth is no life at all.
I will need at least $5000.00 and that is only for dentures plus extractions, 10 top and 12 lower. Of course I would love nothing more then Implants but as they say beggers cant be choosers and I doubt I could ever raise $10,000.00+ to do that.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I appreciate ANY help I can get no matter how litte. In the meantime I am saving every spare cent I have but at the rate I am going it will take me 6-7 years and I cannot live in pain for that amount of time. Thank you again for understanding. Sometimes life is tough but I never thought it could be this bad.
I know there are others out there also in need of help but I am hoping and praying that someone decides to help me even if I arrange to pay them back. I dont know what else to do, its either try this or give up. paypal.me/DentalSOS
Hi, I’m 18 years old I came across this site through an add & decided to give it a try. When I was younger I used to suck my thumb I’ve tried to stop but it was addicting to me & before I could fully stop everything it was too late my teeth already started pushing out…it has made me insecure all throughout elementary going on middle school & high school I used to feel more bad about the way I looked in the mirror , seeing my friends with braces getting their teeth the straightest for that perfect smile I used be jealous of it not because they were gonna look better than me it’s because all through out my life I’ve always had to make something out of myself & anything that I’ve wanted to have I had to get on my own which is really hard for me I can’t afford it aswell as my family I’ve lost a lot of confidence & I feel more depressed because the first thing you see is my two buck teeth, it makes me sounds weird when I talk almost like whistling when I spoke , & when I sleep my teeth dig into the bottom half of my lip making it bleed & painful . Most of my bottom teeth are rotating I hate my smile I hate the way it makes me feel I have never come to ANYONE for anything but if there is really good people out there that would love to help make a difference in my life it’s well appreciated & respected..
thank you !
First of all,hello to everyone. My name is Ivan Kuterovac and I’m from Osijek,Croatia.
It was a very hard decission to do this because when you try everything hopes for a sollution goes down.
Last year I started having problems with my upper jaw teeth,cought some bacteria that has started eating my teeth and rotting.
I went to my dental doctor on first signs but it was already too late and bacteria has done its part. I started to have very bad migraines that lasted for day-two, doctors said that it was because of my teeth. Soon because of my treatments and often appointments at dentist I lost my job. Lucky for me doctors managed to stop spreading of bacteria so I’m happy to have at least some teeth left..
My biggest problem is that I cant find another job,or to be exactly everything on interview is fine untill I smile..Most of the rejections were explained that they cant have a worker with that kind of teeth..and there are looks of people judging me without knowing me or what happened..
I tried to start a GoFundme but my country is not available and it cannot be done.
To the next problem,if you enter current economic status of my country Croatia you will see that we are a country that has roots of corruption to its bottom and the overal standard of life is low.
My paycheck on new job is 450 € and when you put away rent and montly expenses I’m left with 100 € for whole month to live on. Our health care is not supporting these kind of operations so I have to pay it in full.
So I can’t collect money for teeth for a longer period cause bacteria could return in some time and it would took me 6-7 years to save money to do my operation.
I cant get credit in bank for that amount cause my paycheck is too low and I couldnt return the money on monthly base properly so thats unfortunate “no can do”.
The important part is that this has become a battle of time, cause if I get bacteria back I will lose all my remaining teeth.
If you go to coffe every day thats 5 €,skip one day and help someone in need. .
The whole operation will cost cca 5500 € (11 crowns for upper jaw,each 150 € + 9 tooths that i lost,each approximately around 500 €..
So all I was left was this,believe me it was a last option..I really need help from anyone..
I’m desperate..any help is welcome..
If you dont believe me we can do a talk over skype or if there is someone who can help me with bigger ammount,I can present him with the bill and all that matters to my medical problem.

Hi everyone, my name is Liyah. I’m a 22 year old working part time and taking care of my brothers on the days that I am off. Over the past few months, I’ve been experiencing severe dental pain due to my impacted wisdom teeth. They all require the expertise of an oral surgeon, which I absolutely cannot afford. I have called so many places asking for help, applied for Care Credit (which I wasn’t able to receive) and applied for dental insurance (cost too much monthly and can not cover even half the cost). I feel like there are no more options and wish dental help of this magnitude was more accessible for people like me. The small checks I get biweekly go to bills, such as helping my mother out with rent and utilities. The pain has gotten so bad that I cannot even sleep at night, and two of my wisdom teeth have gotten to the point that they are breaking apart in my mouth; I can hardly eat without wanting to break down in tears. I am so desperate to get these taken out; it’s effecting my mental health and pain pills do not help anymore. This is completely new territory for me. I am not used to asking for help, especially from strangers, but if anyone can help in anyway, I would appreciate it so so much. Any amount goes a long way! Sorry for the long message, I just want you all to know I am in no way a scammer. Thank you for reading and I wish you all the best!
Hello, At the time I am a one year graduate with a BS in Computer Science but I have not started to get back to work due to my lack of transportation, much needed dental work, and IT Certification. First my dental work will include teeth pulling and dentures which is $700.00 to have this work done. In terms of transportation, I have decided to utilize a taxi or uber to get to and from work each workday which is also around $500.00 dollars as well. I am very anxious to get back to work and start my new career in the IT Field. I have been out of work for quite sometime now due to health issues and surgery but am ready to get back into the workforce. I am not working so I am unable to get back on my feet which is why I am asking for your help. For my certification, I have chosen to take some CompTIA Certification courses which will be $495.00 for one full year of access. I will also need tutoring to help with the test as well and this is around $1500 dollars. I will be very grateful to anyone who will help as I am unable to stand on my own and will be forever in your debt. PLEASE HELP!!
Hello Everyone! This awesome individual is Susan Tran. I know you might be thinking, this might just be another fundraiser for a good cause. You would be right! : ) I am writing this you in hopes of receiving $3500 for this surgery. I humbly will receive anything that is donated because anything helps!
For some time now, she has been in pain due to some dental procedures. Her dental implants to help get to the end of treatment cost more money than she has and her insurance does not cover it sadly. She had a root canal awhile back and now it is fractured. The consultation that she had gone through suggested dental implants because she is not able to pull her wisdom teeth in. Right now, Susan is in a great deal of pain and she has been coping with the pain by using pain medication since her family cannot afford the surgery for her. It is painful to see my cousin suffer and hold in her pain because her financial circumstances.
As her cousin, i want to be helping her out and am asking you to help out as well! She has not personally asked for help, but I know she is struggling and without giving away too much of her personal life- I know her family cannot support her as much they would like. Together, with her family and our help, we can provide for a treatment she needs. Even if insurance does not cover this! Currently we are looking for alternative prices on this dental procedure and wanted to thank you for your time and for helping my young cousin get out of pain. Thank You,
Yours truly, Danny Nguyen
Ps: I have created a go fund me page but I have not been successful at this, so here I am trying a different approach. I appreciate all your time that you are taking out of your day to read this.
My name is TIBERIU
And today I’m writing here because I have a problem I can not solve by myself.
I’m not a sacmmer I’m just here to ask for help maybe there are people who can help.
Me and ERIKA met 6 years ago is the best thing that happened in my life, last year it became my wife
ERIKA suffers from a severe paradonto, has lost almost all of her teeth, has a few teeth in her mouth, and is very difficult to eat, and has lost weight in the meantime.
As you know dentists are expensive coz its a more complex work to be done and whe spent all our savings on our weding .
I will not begin to say that we do not work and so on, both of us work but when you pay the living expenses and all bills ……….
There is not much to put aside for her so she can get all here teeth back .
I promised her I’ll do my best to make her smile again, but sometimes I fight with windmills.
That’s why I’m here to ask for help to make ERIKA SMILE AGAIN , we also want a baby, but we do not dare yet, because it would not be healthy for the baby if she canot eat properly.
So if there are people who can and who want to help us we will be grateful forever.
Thank you very much

- Root canal + Core Buildup
- 8 Fillings
Hi! I am about to be 56 yrs young. I have a herniated disc severe enough that I can’t work. I’m on a fixed income. I don’t forsee any money for dental care in the near future. I was denied by care credit at Affordable Dentures. I had some close family members try too but they got denied too. I have suffered with tooth decay forever. Most of my teeth had fillings from the time I was 19. Then the fillings would fall out and eventually the tooth would cause so much pain the I would have it pulled. I have no teeth on the upper right side. I have one tooth on both lower back sides. One tooth upper left side. The 6 in the upper front all need to go. They’re chipped, splitting and some are decaying. It would cause way too much to try and fix them. I have 6 that I can keep in the bottom front. One dentist said it was due to soft enamel. I maybe have 16 teeth left and for sure 10 needs to come out. I’m trying for a full upper denture and lower partial. I am very limited on what I can eat since it makes my teeth hurt. I constantly get headaches from my bad teeth. No to mention bad breath and hating to smile. I have searched everywhere for help. I’ve filled out applications all over the internet. Help is limited but the people in need is great. My medicare insurance doesn’t pay for dental and I can’t afford a dental insurance. Affordable Dentures has a sale on dentures that ends at the end of this month. I went for a consultation and on the lower price end it would be around $3000. But since I won’t get the permanant teeth until around a year if I got $1300 I could have these pulled and they will outfit me with temp teeth till I pay for the perms. During the course of a years time I can work on getting the money for the perms. I would greatly appreciate any donations and any helpful information and suggestions. Thank you!
I am not normally one to ask for help but the pain I’m feeling is unbearable. Last September, I was eating dinner and I heard and felt a loud crunch and felt this hard piece of something that wasn’t food in my mouth. I spit it out and it was pieces of one of my fillings.
Over the course of a few months, this tooth that lost the filling has been chipping off and I am constantly getting food stuck in it. It never really hurt me until recently. For the past week, I have had to deal with one of my cheeks being swelled up and my tooth in absolute pain. I should have gone to the dentist back when I first lost my filling but I do not have dental insurance and with my job I make enough to pay my bills and have enough leftover for food. But I don’t have enough to save up for a dentist visit. I can’t find a dentist nearby that will take payment plans and on top of this painfully chipped tooth, I have several cavities. I haven’t been to the dentist since my 10th grade in high school, 8 years ago. I’m just so tired of crying myself to sleep over this pain. I’m tired of not being able to eat because of the pain. I honestly don’t know what to do and I wish dentists weren’t so expensive.
I can not even take a sip of a drink without getting a sharp pain throughout my tooth. I do not understand why healthcare has to be so expensive. Why can’t everyone get the treatment they need for a cheap price? Why do they have to force people to pay outrageously expensive fees just to get the care they need?
If anyone is able to help me out, I would be beyond grateful. I really hate asking for help but I have no one else I can turn to. I just need to be able to get this tooth fixed and then I’ll feel so much better. Thank you to anyone who can spare even a dollar to help me. Thank you!
My pay pal account will be posted below and again I truly appreciate each and every one of you that are able to give me a little hand. I truly hope that each of you receives a huge blessing.
I’m an ACoA and experienced medical neglect as a child. We did not have dental insurance growing up. In my third grade school photo, I had a cavity in between my front teeth. By fifth grade, I had a molar that had decayed so badly, it was nothing but gum and an exposed nerve.
I moved out at 18, was able to get insurance, and finally worked up the courage to see a dentist when I was 21. I was terrified of judgment but I faced my fears and went. I received eight nine fillings and two extractions. Unfortunately, I lost my insurance shortly after, when I got married and my husband and I made “too much money.” By too much, I mean too much for subsidized insurance but not enough to afford private insurance.
It’s been ten years and we finally have insurance again. I went to the dentist on 4/18/2018 and had a full oral evaluation. I need $2500+ worth of work to start, plus a root canal (they referred me out so I don’t know the exact cost of this yet, but the average in my state is around $950). So, approximately $3500. This is AFTER insurance. This is for the following:
- Root Canal + Core Buildup
- 8 Fillings (to replace the 10 year old fillings)
- 1 Crown
He also said that eventually he recommends I crown all six of my top anterior teeth which will be over $7000 in addition to the $3500. At this point, I’m not even concerned about that. I just want the necessary work done so that I can live pain free and actually smile at people. It hurts when people think ill of you because of your teeth.
I am in pain daily because of the molar (this is the tooth they want to extract) and I can’t bite with my front teeth because my fillings are loose.
I cannot afford this and am in desperate need. I am willing to exchange services. I am an established blogger and can provide Web content for your blog or website in exchange for any financial assistance you can provide.
Thank you so much for reading. I appreciate your time and consideration.
I would like to begin by saying that I have thought about this for a long time but have not been able to bring myself to it until now. I am 38 years old and have had dental issues my whole life. I have also had a great deal of financial struggles up until recently. Now that I have been able to breathe for the last year or so, I decided now was the time to have my teeth fixed. I am missing my left front tooth, the one two to the right of that is mostly gone, I am missing both molars on the bottom left, and one of my upper right molars as well. I do have dental insurance but it does not cover the replacement of missing teeth as it is considered cosmetic. I went to a local Clear Choice location and got a quote to have permanent implants. They recommended, due to the severity of damage to the remaining teeth on the top, that I replace all my top teeth and the bottom four molars (two on either side). I will include a scan of the quote… roughly $36,000… I was told that I can get started for 15k. That gets me my top shelf pulled and the set of temporary implants that will last roughly a year before I have to get them replaced with the permanent ones.
I am happy to provide pictures if you’d like as well as xrays if I can get them.
I just want to smile without feeling self conscious, eat without pain, and finally be done with it all. I tried getting a loan for it but no one will approve me because of my credit history which is still on the mend from 11 years of being married to a man who couldn’t balance a checkbook.
Please feel free to reach out if you have clarifying questions you would like to ask.
From braces to looking like I’m on drugs. I am 22 years old as you can see from the picture my teeth are awful. From the beginning I had crooked teeth and embarrassed by my teeth. I wanted braces so very badly but unfortunately my mom could not afford it by herself. Well when I was 16 years old my mom, aunt and grandma chipped in and got me braces. I got my braces I had to have them for 2 years I went to every appointment and the orthodontist would tell me every time that it looks good and I’m almost to straight teeth. I was so excited to get straight teeth. Well the day came and I got them off they looked amazing my orthodontist told me I had a one cavity on the top, by the way I never had a cavity til after braces. So I went to my dentist and he told me the worse news I could have gotten…. all my teeth, top and bottom had cavities I was embarrassed and felt like I would never have a beautiful smile, well he fixed 3 teeth and told me to make another appointment. Well I never went back I didn’t have the money for it and I thought brushing would help. It didn’t I had to get my whole bottom teeth pulled off and have dentures all at the age of 21. I’m ugly now with a top month full of decay my teeth are breaking away and my bottom teeth gone. I just need help and I don’t know what to do anymore.
Hi, it’s Andrei with a story about a lower-middle-class family of 2, me and my mom, from Eastern Europe. It took me 2 weeks to get started writing this message, it’s not ‘culturally ok’ to ask for money in our country, but desperate times desperate measures, right? First of all thanks for having time to read someone else’s problems, such as mine.
I am really bad at writing, especially writing heartbreaking stories, so ill try to describe our situation briefly. Mom works at a 12-14 hours a day job (I know, we don’t have working laws in our country, at least companies don’t execute them) and earns approximately 250$ a month. I am a second-course student and the reason I am writing this and not working is that – When I used to work during my first course (minimum working hours is 8 in a majority of companies) I was missing classes and lost points which are needed to get a degree at the end of the 4th course. And if I attend classes I don’t have money even to pay a dentist and get my teeth fixed. So basically this motivated me to write this message. I could go on and write all health condition problems we are facing but, it’s already embarrassing enough, for me, at least.
I will repay you back!
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want just to get 200$ and walk away, like it would fix all my problems. But it will be enough for me to pay dental services and buy cheap drawing tablet to improve my digital art skills (self-taught) and make living out of it. I will send each dollar back to everyone or make digital paintings for you. Even small amount of 5$ means a lot to me. it’s up to you to help me.
Thank you for reading my story till the end. Kind regards
I am a 36 year old single mother of three, that has went without dental insurance a long time and my teeth have started to break and decay over the years. I do work fulltime and I have dental insurance, but that does not cover the amount of work that I need done. I work in retail so that means that interaction with the public is a huge part of my job. But do the fact that I am missing so many teeth on the top, this is effecting my job performance. I am not able to laugh with my children, I am not able to have a relationship because this issue has damaged my self esteem and self confidence. I do not even like to look at myself in the mirror. I just want to be able to laugh with my kids without worrying about covering my mouth. I am not looking for someone to pay for everything, I just really need some help. I have applied for things like care credit so that I could get the work done and pay on monthly payments but my credit is not the best. If there is anyone out there that would be willing to help a single mother get her self confidence back and live a happy life I would for ever be grateful.
I’m not really sure how to do this or where I should even begin. This is a really hard thing for me to talk about. Let alone ask for help with but I don’t know what to do. 3 years ago I was laying in bed and one of my teeth chipped due to a soft white spot caused by demineralization. At the time I thought nothing of it but over the last couple of years, it’s gone from a chip to effecting 4 teeth. It may sound stupid but I should’ve gone to the dentist when the chip had occurred but the thought of anyone seeing my smile almost brings me to tears. I finally built up the courage to go to the dentist a couple of weeks ago and the visit broke me. The cost to give me back my smile was mind boggling and frustrating because I have no means of paying that amount. I’ve never done anything like this or ever asked another for anything my entire life but I just want to feel confident again and have my smile back and not feel like a freak when I talk to others. I know this is a long shot but I have to do it even if it does nothing for me. I appreciate any donation of any amount. There are no words t describe how thankful I would be if this got funded for me. I hope you have a wonderful day and again, Thank you.
Hello! I ‘m a 45 year old female. I recently visited a dentist on March 28, 2018. I have Denti-cal. I got a cleaning and had a back molar removed on that day. Ouch, I’m still in a little pain, but I can manage. I had to have it removed because it was broken in half and it was causing me much pain. The dentist told me that he can save it, but I couldn’t afford a crown. So I told him to extract it. When he showed me the x-ray he pointed out to me that my roots were barely visible and that it would be hard to do a root canal, also I had a deep cavity and that was causing me much pain. That tooth was right by my wisdom tooth which was extracted about 6 years ago. and that left my bottom left side numb which I can’t feel to this day. That dentist that extracted my wisdom tooth 6 years ago told me that my nerves were wrapped around my wisdom tooth and that caused my nerve damage. so basically I’m numb from my bottom lip all the way to my left cheek on my face. I’ve gotten used to it. and I don’t mind.
Anyways my recent dentist told me that I need a crown on my bottom left side right by where he extracted my tooth. Denti-cal won’t cover that. He said he wants to save it because when I smile it shows and I don’t want another extraction. He said he will charge me $275 on the day he works on it and another $275 in 2 weeks when the crown arrives. so I’m asking for $550. I live with my mom and dad. I’m their caregiver. My mom is 84 my dad is 76. I help them with the things that they can’t accomplish on their own. So I”m with them all day.
Please help me with what you can. I would appreciate it very much. Thank you for reading my post. Have a great day. God bless you. :)
Hello, my name is Rachel, I am a mother of 3 wonderful children. I am 33 years old and live in Missouri (usa). I have a disease called neurofibromatosis which is a neurological disorder causing tumors inside and outside my body.
After my son was born in 2007, I started to notice my teeth going bad, I had some pulled with out of pocket costs but then became unable to pay. In 2011 I became disabled due to my disease and other health issues, I’m on medicaid and they didn’t pay for dental until like 3 years ago, I started getting teeth pulled last year.
They told me I would need dentures due to all the damage my teeth had, the dentures will cost $2,100.00 . I only get $750 a month, rent is $188, Electric $180, H2O $48, Sewer and trash $40, loans for truck $260. If I have money left over I use it for gas and much needed items for my home. I do get food stamps so that pays for my food.
I was raised to never ask for help, but I feel like I am backed into a corner, I have tried gofundme but no one would help me or even share my link, so I closed it.
I dont show my teeth when I smile and usually its a forced smile, I know every little bit helps and I greatly appreciate any help that I receive.
Thank you everyone for taking the time out of your day to read this, and may God bless you abundantly.
To understand my situation, let’s start from the beginning.
- Born in Ontario, Canada, to married parents, second child under an older brother. Parents were military, mother gave up her career to stay home and raise us, as my brother was struggling with drug use at the time.
- Moved to New Brunswick at 3 years old, to get away from a crime-heavy area we’d been living in prior. Mother got a high-paying security job. Father continued to work in the military. Brother got off drugs and began to improve.
- I am abused by a family member and forced into foster care at the age of 7. From this point until I turned 17, I spent weeks at a time in one home, then into the next, sometimes going home to mother, sometimes staying in emergency or group homes, but never put under guardianship as my mother continued to fight for custody of me. Thus, I received none of the usual benefits that Canadian Foster Children get. I’ve had more homes that birthdays and more schools than I’ve got fingers and toes.
- At 14, I became pregnant. After an all natural birth, by age 15, I was attempting to raise my newborn son whilst still in foster care and still switching homes every month or other week. Eventually, I made the decision to give him up for adoption, so he’d not have to know such an uncertain future, to suffer like I was. It was a closed adoption. I have no contact, never have and never will, unless he seeks me out at 18.
- At 17, I attempted suicide. My family and peers hated my decision to give my son up, especially after struggling to raise him. After flushing my system and keeping me in the mental health recovery ward for three days, I was released, deemed ‘too smart to be so stupid again’, as the psychiatrist stated in simpler terms to my doctors as they unhooked me unceremoniously and sent me on my way, alone, to find my way home.
- Since then, I’ve managed four jobs in my entire life, and three volunteer positions; no job lasted longer than six months before my anxiety attacks would start to effect my work. Even my favorite job, pulling rickshaws for tourists around town, went to shit after my employer made off with our final pays at the end of the season. After facing court charges, the business was shut down, and I lost the only job I’d excelled at.
- I’ve gone back after dropping out of high school and gotten my GED. It’s my greatest accomplishment so far. I’m aiming to go back and upgrade, to get my highschool credits, to further my studies in biology and psychology. It’s my dream to study behavioral sciences based on the functions of the brain.
- I suffer from degenerative disease that’s destroyed my teeth and gums (it effects my bones and muscle tissue as well, but not to such an extent that it prevents fairly typical everyday functions) and after many years of dental procedures, I’ve been left with no front teeth. On a fixed income with insurance that just barely covers the cost of regular dental work, I don’t have the $200 they require to have dentures fitted and made for me.
- I have insomnia from all of this and that, plus bad teeth, plus my being a pale as heck second-generation Ukrainian-Canadian, I look like a half-dead crackhead at the best of times. I have never touched a drug that hard, ever, in my life- and I’ll freely admit to some drug abuse as a teen, playing around with MDMA, LSD and Marijuana as a teen. After the suicide attempt, I cleaned myself up. It hasn’t helped.
- I’m starving, I don’t sleep, I get just under $550 a month to pay bills with. My rent is $400, electricity is usually around $150. If I can keep it down to less, I can sometimes buy groceries. Usually I hit the food bank and pantries each month. I can only hit each place once a month, and each place gives you about four to six shopping bags of expired donations from a city too poor to donate anything better. This month, I got a leftover butterball turkey and the fixings to go with it, which is amazing, but abnormal.
- When that bird thaws, I’ll eat like a king, but it won’t help me with getting my dentures or being able to secure a job, even if my short, pitiful excuse for a resume gets me an interview. It usually doesn’t. 32 applications since the 1st and not a single call back, this month. I’m really nothing special on paper, and upon seeing my toothless, sunken-in face, with dark circles under my eyes and a tiredness that doesn’t go away; I get shot down.That’s the important bits at least. My situation is craptacular and I’ve tried everything within my power to improve it, only to have it worsen again and again. Please, if anyone out there can spare it, help me be better than this, help me get my smile back, my hope back. My sanity back. I just want a job. I just want to be okay.
Hi, my name is Ivan I’m 24 years old. I live in Serbia, a country in Eastern Europe. I have a problem with my teeth. I have a narrow jaw and because of that, my teeth are very tight and crooked. Since I was a boy I have problems with my teeth. Because one over the other I have a problem to wash them well and this has led to them being constantly in a bad state. I grew up with a single mother who could not always make enough money to help repair teeth. Of course this problem with my teeth does not allow me to find a better paid job. I have trouble eating. And teeth are very brittle and easy to break. I also find it hard to find a girl because it has affected my self-esteem. When I talk to someone, I constantly lower my head, because I feel embarrassed when they look at me, almost never laugh, and more and more often I withdraw. That’s why I am more and more asocial. I miss time with friends and sometimes I go out with them.
I would very much like to repair and correct my teeth because I am sure that it will give me confidence and energy in my life. I have the impression that I would then laugh all day and that my happiness would last forever.
One dentist offered to help me fix my teeth and gave me a significant discount, but I still have to get around $ 3,500
I am very determined to fix my teeth and smile, so I need your help. I do not have anyone to ask for money and that’s why I’m asking you to help me raise money. Each coin is a step closer to the goal and thank you so much for choosing to help me.
Hi, I am a 22 year old male from Minnesota, I’m currently in a bit of a situation, I’m struggling with my teeth. Half of my teeth are rotting in my head causing daily issues with eating or drinking, a few of my teeth are broken and more are on the way out, I can hardly chew anything without a certain amount of pain making it difficult to stay healthy, I’ve been looking into dental surgery but due to the severity of my teeth treatment is extremely expensive, it’s causing a huge amount of personal distress, I avoid smiling because I’m self conscious about what others will think of my teeth, my breath is terrible and that makes me avoid wanting to interact with anybody on daily basis which is hard being I have a job based around customer service and dealing with people all day and it’s taking it’s toll on the way I see myself and my confidence has taken a dive, I look at old picture of me where I used to smile and I miss being able to smile with all my teeth and not have to worry about hiding them. Another reason I’ve been looking into dental surgery is because people comment on my teeth all the time, making comments and mentioning how bad my breath and teeth are and how bad they are getting. I’m really concerned that my teeth will get worse causing more issues than they already have, eating is very very difficult as I mentioned before every now and then when I’m eating something I feel a tooth break more and more, at night the pain keeps me awake tossing and turning all night due to the pain. I get extreme migraines due to the pain in my mouth, it’s an extremely uncomfortable and painful experience that I deal with on a daily basis. It’s hard being 22 with rotting teeth in my mouth and looking into it the initial work is somewhere around 1500 dollars Which I cannot afford on my own due to me only making ten dollars an hour and having other bills such as rent, car insurance, and now a massive car repair bill in the near future, my health insurance will not cover any of the surgery other than the post surgery medication for the pain. So if anybody could help this 22 year old regain his smile I would forever be grateful for the kind gift you have given me and hopefully I will have my smile back and my confidence back as well. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Hey there how are you? I’m not doing so good honestly.. I am a 21 year old with school debt and bills I am struggling with. I have a part time job but my books take up most of it as well as my school costs. I recently met one of my roommates uncles and he’s a dentist. He saw my smile and immediately told me I should get it fixed. I have been bullied because of it as well and it’s always been on my wish/bucket/to do list but because of the costs I deep down know I can’t do it alone. What I have is 4 wisdom teeth that are already growing. My mouth hurts here and there but I do nothing because I have no help to do so. I need teeth implants because I am missing tissue on my right front tooth which causes that tooth to go more and more up. I need surgery to fix my smile, teeth, but I need your help to do so. The surgery would be around 4,000 plus wisdom tooth removal is around 800. We’ve calculated that my total would be around the 6,000. I don’t ever ask for money because I feel the guilt but my life is to the point that I hate smiling. I hate meeting new people or talking because I see the eyes go straight to my teeth. I’ve been told my teeth ruin my face and it hurts. Anything will help I want to be a new me with confidence in 2018. Help me achieve it.
Hi! Thanks for taking the time to read this… I have never asked for money from anyone, but I don’t know what else to do. I was in an extremely abusive relationship for many years with the father of my oldest child. I am no longer in that relationship, but still deal with the physical effects it had on me every day. I have been a single mom most of my children’s lives. While in this relationship I was hit and punched in the face repeatedly over the years. I held a full-time job and was the primary provider for my children. I was provided medical insurance through my job, but never had dental insurance. I went to a dentist a couple of years ago who told me that all of my teeth are horribly fractured. I had been hit so hard that it fractured my teeth like glass. In the last year, my teeth have started breaking. I have lost all my upper back teeth on one side and most of the lower ones on the other side. I got an infection in my jaw last year and ended up in the hospital for 19 days in intensive care because I contracted MRSA. (Flesh eating bacteria). They weren’t sure if I was going to live through it. Luckily, I recovered but am now a MRSA carrier, which means antibiotics no longer work on me and the slightest infection can kill me… I have constantly battled tooth pain and infection from my broken teeth. I was told that to have them removed and replaced with implants will cost me almost 10,000$!!! I will never have that kind of money to spend on teeth. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my appearance, I don’t smile anymore. I am only 44 yrs old and I don’t want to live this way. I have a beautiful grandbaby who I can’t take pictures with because I am ashamed. I thought that once I got away from my abuser I would be free to live a normal life, but that’s not the case. Every time I look in the mirror I am right back in that relationship. I just want to feel normal… please help me move out of that abusive hell and start a happy new life!!
My name is Rebecca I work very hard and so does my mum but we have no spare money. I would really like for my mum to have her teeth done as they have been bad for a while and she won’t go anywhere she has to smile. It costs a lot of money £1,600 (nhs) and I worry she will never get it done, she deserves to be happy. Any help would be much appreciated.
My name is Sierra, and I am a low-income college student struggling to get my health under control. I am struggling with mental illness (thankfully, we have free counseling at my school and I was able to get help paying for my medication) and IBS, and I have now recently developed an unbearable ache in my jaw and teeth. My gum is visibly swollen and my bottom tooth is sensitive to touch and temperature extremes. I had a root canal in this tooth about two years ago while I was still covered, and I believe that it or another tooth nearby has failed. It is difficult to tell, as the pain is widespread.
I live in South Carolina and am not eligible for Medicaid because I do not have a disability or a child. I cannot afford the plans offered under Medicaid for my state, especially because South Carolina did not expand on Mediciad coverage.
My toothache is keeping me from focusing on my work. I have been taking over the counter pain pills to help me concentrate and sleep, but these pills are bad for you stomach in the long run and should not be taken on a daily basis. In trying to curb one problem, I am creating another in my body. As you can imagine, the added stress of this ache is also worsening the impact of my mental health problems.
I do not earn enough (I am a work study student) to make payments for most of the plans offered, and my credit is not good enough to qualify me for programs like CareCredit. I have searched for free options, but all the free clinics in my area are not accepting new dental patients until next June.
I am a promising student with a high GPA with upcoming opportunities to travel abroad and complete an independent research project under the McNair program. These intersecting health problems have made it difficult for me to keep up with the obligations of college life. I have tried every option available to me and will not be able to do this on my own. Please consider helping me.

Hi, My name is Jacqueline. I’m recovering from eating disorder after battling for over 20 years….Due to the depression and Abusive relationship, I let myself go. I believe my teeth started to fall out cause of the beatings in the face i received and from eating disorder.
When i try to brush, I start to feel lost of pain which leads to headache. My front teeth are dark, yellow, cracked and full of holes. I can’t smile or talk clear cause of embarrassment. I can’t eat normal food other than mashed potatoes, due it’s difficult to chew or bite. Drinking anything very cold or hot is impossible. So basically I’m gonna need Implants or permanent Denture for all the 30 teeth.
I can’t work cause most of the jobs i could do requires to put a smile on. So it’s been very hard for me to get hired. I have a kid to take care of, but without work, I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I’m desperately in need to get my smile back, so i can start to work again.
It’s extremely expensive for dental here, so due to financial problems I have, i can’t afford to fund myself. If, I could get around $10000 would help to fix my teeth. Any help is appreciated. Thank you very much for taking time to read my story. God Bless you all! Link to

I do not care which i just need my teeth for work to be honest I have been losing my hours at work as a receptionist due to the look of my mouth. I hate they way they look and make me feel, both physically and emotionally. I do not ask for help from many, I really do not ask for anything for me. I try and do it all on my own because that is my job as a parent, but I need help this time. I am willing to pay back every dime I am helped with and will sign a contract. I just need help please. I can send pictures if anyone wants to see them and to help me but please keep in mind that I am very embarrassed by this. I am not a drinker and I do not do drugs.

HELLO TO ALL,
My name is Shanda and first of all i cant believe it has come to this. but i am a woman in desperate need. Ive been depressed for a while although i try to hide it. My teeth, literally, seems to be falling out. On one side i have no teeth in the back and on the other side is falling out bit by bit. Im totally scared the front teeth will be gone here real soon. I dont drink. I dont smoke. but I do drink a lot of cofee. Im sure that dont help out the situation. I am a woman in my mid 40’s but look 30…. but once all my teeth fall out, i’ll look 60 0r 70 and i’m TOTALLY SCARED!!!
I can barely eat. It HURTS TO EAT!! IT HURTS TO DRINK. CANT BE TOO HOT! CANT BE TOO COLD! CANT BE HARD! CANT BE SWEET! I’m losing all kinds of weight. I’m just totally embarrassed and ashamed. I wanna date. I wanna live life. I want to find my soul mate. but looking like this, no one will want me.
Im in a very tight income situation. Im on SSI/SSD and i only get 650 a month. BARELY making ends meet. I have a 2003 ford blazer i just managed to pay off by neglecting personal needs. When im down to my last payment….My car gets severely BURNED on the passenger side while im trying to make money babysitting. My car was sitting next to a car that caught on fire.The person had no insurance and i can only afford Liability. So now im stuck trying to fix my truck. THE ONE AND ONLY THING I NOW OWN. I gave up almost half my monthly income..$300 a month for 9 months. I SACRIFICED!!!!!! I was so proud of my truck, for a very short moment. It needs work but it runs and get me from A to B.
I can get my truck sanded and painted for $1ooo. I can get a little work under the hood done for about $300. I can get my teeth fixed for $1500 so a total of $2800 would help me out TREMENDOUSLY!!!! or whatever im blessed with.
I have multiple sclerosis and trying to find a job that i can do without my legs giving out is hard. I didnt mention my condition in the beginning because i dont want to use my illness as an excuse. I wanna be able to enjoy life before this condition worsens.
THANKS TO ALL IN ADVANCE AND GOD BLESS!
I don’t even know where to begin. I feel like all the walls are caving in on me. I have technically three jobs, just went through a seasonal drought, with one giving me a consistent 20 hours, and one being a traveling job starting in November. I wish my issues were caused by laziness, but it seems like its just shitty events day after day, and they come at a time where I’m making no money.
I got my wisdom teeth removed recently, but only the top ones. I paid $200 for pills that were supposed to knock me out, but they didn’t, so I managed to bare getting only my top ones out. The oral surgeon stopped, because my bottom two were coming in crooked, and said they wouldn’t do the surgery until I’m gassed, because I had anxiety, and felt like I was choking on my blood, and they will have to break my jaw for the bottom 2. That costs $1000 with my insurance. So after getting behind on work since that surgery, I’ve since gone back to work. Only, my bottom wisdom teeth are hurting so badly lately, and I can’t bare the pain anymore. Its so hard to concentrate on anything with my pounding headaches. I don’t want to be on narco, and I can’t afford consistent medicine, so that option is gone.
And then, yesterday, my head gasket blew out on my car on the way to work, and I missed a shift (thank god I didn’t get punished by my employer) and now I have no transportation. I spoke to my bank, and at my age, and score, due to having 3 lines of credit open. One is my busted car, with $1500 left on my payments. My car could be scrapped for $300. It was a Dodge Stratus that consistently gave me problems. But in order to be approved for a loan to get a new car, I’d have to pay off my broken car. My friend in financed said I’m at best looking at a $4000, 11% loan after my previous one is paid.
So I’m in a position, where I have no money to fix my health, which is preventing me from working to the best of my ability (only missed 2 shifts in 3 years, this is new to me…), no transportation (now I’m using Uber to get to work, roughly costing me $30 a day), which will cause me to get behind on other payments and rent. I am scared, and my traveling job in November, I’ll have to fly, and I am so terrified of the pressure it’ll put on my teeth, and if I can even handle it.
Long story short
-Need $1000 for wisdom teeth sedation
-Need $1200-1500 to pay off broken car, to qualify for a new car loan
-Hoping for $800 for coasting and rent after I have to have my jaw broken by wisdom tooth extraction.

If you’re actually reading this – then you’re already doing more than I expected- so thanks for listening. I know this is an extremely long shot, and I feel like a complete twerp to be perfectly frank, but I figured it couldn’t hurt (aside from my pride) to ask, on the off chance someone with more money than they need, was willing to take a chance on a stranger.
Long story short, I was diagnosed with ameloblastoma in 2012 and had a jaw resection – which meant I lost a bunch of my jaw and a bunch of my teeth and as a bonus lost sensation in my chin. (See attached x-ray). It was a bummer, but something I could live with. However, here lies the problem: I have been eating on one side of my face ever since and my bite has shifted and it’s straight up destroying my remaining teeth. They are cracked, raw and some in the front have started to move and come loose. I’m in the middle of a root canal but there’s so much more work to be done (bone grafts, implants, splints) before I will be able to eat and smile properly again and so little money to pay for it all.
I work hard to pay my rent and bills and look after my pets, but these are costs that are more than I make in two years and I feel completely overwhelmed by them.
Anyway, that’s enough of my sob story I think. If you can help me at all, even a little I would be eternally in your debt.
Love, peace and thanks,
First off, I have never done anything like this before. I have looked at some of the other posts asking for help here in this forum and I am now even more embarrassed to ask for help since some of these pictures show teeth a lot worse than mine are. I hope those people receive some kind of help, if they are legitimate.
I can assure you I am legitimate, I came here to post because I feel the Lord can use a person that has the funds to help me to help change my life. There is a very long story involved with my issues so I will try to shorten it as much as I can.
I was in a very bad marriage and found out that my son was gay, my husband lost his mind over it and became abusive to my son and myself. Eventually my son had to leave home to live in a different state with my parents and I emotionally died inside because I missed him so much. I take marriage vows very seriously and so I stayed with my husband hoping he could change soon. It all came crashing down when one night he got very drunk took a walk outside in a snowstorm, came home got undressed then threw himself headfirst down a staircase. I called 911 and police also showed up, he became belligerent and they had to restrain him. I became afraid of him at that point because I had never seen anything like that before and figured if he could do that to himself what might he do to me?
He was in an institution for a few weeks and I waited for him at home, I did not have a career as I was a stay at home mom so worried about money while he was gone, amongst other things. I had to put our one dog down while he was away because the dog was peeing all over the house and was very sick with diabetes, I had given the dog shots for years and taken care of him but he became too ill and it had to be done. It was very heartbreaking. Finally my husband got out of the facility, came home and things were a little better but he blamed me for putting him in that place even though I had nothing to do with it. Things got bad again and he asked me why I was still living there, I felt a nudge to leave and so I finally left a few months later in Aug. 2014 to go be with my parents. After arriving at their home I felt so much better and was so happy to be with my son.
In december of that year, we found out my mother had breast cancer. Suddenly I realized God had put me with my parents for a reason and that was to take care of my mother. I never understood why medical books had fascinated me throughout my childhood, I had read every medical book I could find, but now everything made sense. I had been preparing for this my whole life. We found out my mother had stage 4 cancer a couple weeks later, it had spread to her brain and bones. She had had the cancer for a long time and never told me or my brother about the huge lump in her chest. We tried to stay positive and I put her on a special diet.
I took care of my mom for 2 years plus my elderly grandfather, then she died in June of 2016. I took care of her as she was dying and throwing up black bile, I was on my feet for 32 hours straight until she finally died. It was a horrible death and I am glad she doesn’t have to suffer anymore and is with God. We were all devastated and after she died, I started drinking too much wine and cried a lot. I had no mother, no home, no money..I had nothing. But I tried to wake up everyday positive regardless because I believe God had told me that if I take care of my mother and do what he wanted me to do that he would always take care of me. At this point in my life I was unhealthy and very overweight (over 300lbs)
One day, October 2016 I got up and took my dog outside, it was raining that morning and as I walked in the backyard I stepped into a large hole with both feet, I fell over sideways and heard cracking sounds. Nobody was home and I laid outside for about 10 minutes until my dad finally got home and saw me lying out there through a back window. Long story short I was rushed to the hospital and found out I had a trimalleor ankle fracture which means I had broken 3 bones in my lower leg/ankle and had sprained my other ankle pretty badly. I had to have surgery 11 days later (November 2016)and they put in 40 screws a plate and some pins. I was in terrible pain for weeks afterward because I had nerve damage from the operation. I was bedridden for months and had to use a wheelchair. Actually, I am now trying to find a needy family that could use the wheelchair and the hospital bed my mother had used before she died. Thank goodness my father was here to take care of me throughout my injury because I was helpless.
After my injury my appetite was pretty much gone and I have chosen to view the injury as a blessing from God since I prefer to focus on the good things that come out of tragedy. I have lost a ton of weight and am now getting healthy. I feel so much better and look a lot better too. I have medicaid which helps me get dental work done which I’m very grateful for but it only covers fillings. It does not cover crowns unless there is an emergency and then it just covers 1 per year.
My problem with my teeth started when I was younger, my brother came up to me when I was drinking soda out of a glass bottle and smashed it into my face with his hand, the result was it chipped my front tooth. A dentist decided to fill the space but that fell out so he decided to grind down my other front tooth to make them match which was a big mistake because over the years they keep getting shorter and shorter. Also the last dentist I went to said that other dentists through the years have made major mistakes by putting in caps/crowns that did not fit my teeth properly. You will see an example of this in the picture, my front bottom tooth..the cap that was put in years ago does not match the others and the color is off. Putting crowns in that did not fit caused me to grind my teeth down to little stubs, the dentist tried talking me into getting crowns but I have no money to do it. He said soon my nerves in the front teeth would start to hurt because of how small the teeth are getting.
I hate my teeth, theyre becoming discolored and very small. I don’t like to smile anymore and get embarrassed when I talk to people in person. They always stare at my mouth. I’m not a shallow person at all and I know looks aren’t everything but it has been so long since I have been able to really take care of myself or felt attractive and if I could just get crowns for my front teeth I would feel so much better and also not have to be afraid of the nerves becoming exposed.
I’m not normally the type of person to ask anyone for help. My whole life I have done things for other people and tried to help them, I never buy myself anything or do anything for myself and now I’m going out on a limb and asking for a miracle because I don’t have any money to fix my teeth. But only if someone can afford to help me and only if God has touched them in a way that makes them want to help me. If I hear no responses at all that will be ok, I will know it was not meant to be. I will leave this up to God and fate but if someone finds it in their heart to help me fix this problem I will be forever grateful to you. If you have read all of this I just want to thank you for reading my story and about my life, God bless!
They said I must provide a link to paypal to receive help, here is the link if you feel you would like to help me:
Hi my name is Kristi and 33 years old. I just recently found out I had a bad gum disease that was taken my teeth. So dentist told me he had to pull them all. So I let him. Which I now feel it was a really bad mistake. I’ve been suffering from manic depression, severe anxiety, suicide tendencies, and bi polar since I was 13 when diagnosed with all this. Before I would at least go around people and places. But now since all my teeth where pulled. I’m embarrassed to talk to anyone or be seen by anyone. I stay in my house day and night and talk to no one. My depression is really bad because of this not having teeth. My teeth were always the best part of me. Dentist made me a set of dentures after he removed my teeth and the tumor in my mouth. But dentures are way to big and hurt entirely to bad. I’m tongue tied so they can’t make them to fit me right. I’m trying to come up with enough money to get the implants. I know this won’t help me get rid of my depression, but I would be able to go in public and be able to talk to people again. But most of all I would be able to take my soon to be 2yr old baby girl outside to play or to different new to see places. It’s not fair to her to see her mom always crying, cancelling Dr.appointments and just avoiding everyone and thing. I want to be able to do stuff again and have even just a little bit of self esteem again. To be out of this state of mind. I want to take her shopping, to amusement parks, parks, for walks, or just outside to play. I’m feeling like I’m messing her life up. I’m not good at asking for help, but I can’t do this life anymore. Something has to change. With new teeth I could do so much. From actually being able to get a job to having friends again. Getting stuff done that I’ve been avoiding. I’m begging for help. Getting my teeth done will lead to so much more. My home I’m renting is full of black mold, walls falling apart on outside and inside. Just touch the wall and you fall threw it. Gas leaks and lines falling apart so old. So with me getting my teeth done and able to get a job. I could get a new place to stay with my baby girl, somewhere safe also for her medical issues. I just need a little self esteem back to get out of this state of depression. Thank you!!!
I’m usually very independent and absolutely hate to ask for anything, but at this point in my life I feel like all I can do is hope there is someone out there looking to help me in my time of need.I am currently twenty seven years old, and I need a lot of dental work done. I grew up helping my disabled mother and raising my brothers three children so I was unable to go to the dentist regularly because of obvious reasons I was unable to afford the visits. with that being said I had a horrible dental experience when I was around twelve years old a dentist filled almost everyone of my teeth which led to most of them falling out or breaking. I have around eight good teeth left.I’m in a crisis because I recently moved to try and better my life and now I cannot find a job because of my teeth. I feel like I am being judged in the interviews because the first thing they see is my front teeth broken. Without a job I simply can not get any kind of dental insurance or pay out of pocket for the costly expenses. I went to the dentist and was estimated 10,000 just to fix the current problems. I needed a deep cleaning, four root canals, two crowns,two porcelain crowns (for the front teeth) and i think they said one or two bridges. this was a year ago and they told me then i had about six months before my teeth got even worse. and since then I have had an additional two teeth break. I am not asking for the entire amount just whatever anyone can help with. my main goal is to get my front teeth fixed that way i can get a job and save for the rest. thank you to anyone who has taken the time to even read this.I just want to be able to be confident in my future work place and to be able to enjoy eating without the constant worry I will get a toothache or worse my teeth will break even more.thank you so much. https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/DeAnnasCrafty
I want to start this letter by showing you my up most appreciation. I’m very thankful for your time and consideration in reading my letter. I’m in dire need of major dental expenses for performing dental surgery that I can’t afford. I’m really hoping that you read this and understand my situation and true urgency, and gain your trust and believe that what I’m stating is fact. All I can do is ask you for a little financial support and donate any amount you feel necessary, and will go along way towards my goal. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this online. I’m the type of person that is to stubborn to ask for help unless I absolutely need it. So I’m swallowing my pride, and I’m gonna reach out for a helping hand. I’m gonna have faith and trust that this is the right thing to do. My purpose of this attempt for donations is I’ve tried calling multiple different dental programs, and also went online for sometimes hours at a time to find any kind of financial assistance and always repeatedly finding myself at a “roadblock” so to speak of some kind. It’s either I don’t qualify, or I don’t make enough or I don’t have insurance it’s just constant back and fourth. And the result is I’m denied or put on endless waiting lists and a hope to receive a phone call that never seems to happen!. It seems to be that same outcome after all the time and energy and aggravation. And I end up no closer to solving my problem and no progress reaching my goal. So I’m gonna try to be optimistic, and I hope this will give me the opportunity I’ve been desperately seeking. I’m hopeful to raise enough money for a major dental surgery. I want to have all my teeth pulled and have enough funds to put dentures in. That’s been a long time dream of mine,and I prey everyday that it will happen. For many years now I’ve been battling continuous tooth pain on a daily basis. Having sensitive teeth while eating or drinking, and constantly spitting out broken pieces of a tooth that’s decayed away. Also I’ve had multiple sever abscesses and tooth infections with non-stop throbbing and pain and my face swelled out like a balloon!. When I was a kid growing up I wasn’t fortunate enough to have a regular family dentist. Someone to guide me in helping me with regular check ups and cleaning’s and to prevent my teeth from decaying so rapidly. So I was ignorant to cause and effect without any regards to regular dental check ups and up keep!. But my mom tried to do what she could with what she had. She was never financially stable enough to afford such care for me. I remember it was always a constant struggle for her to put food on the table, and clothes on my back. I grew up in a poor, and rough household. So a dentist among other things wasn’t an option for me. So this is my cry for help with good intentions. I’m a very honest, and hard working person who would give my shirt off my back to help someone in need. People say I’m to caring to others. That’s just the type of person I am. I can completely relate to others who also have it rough financially and who definitely know the value of a dollar and to earn that dollar. Dental work these days is very expensive to afford, even if you have the proper insurances. I don’t have either the finances nor the proper insurance to afford the type of dental repair I need. The older I’m getting I’m noticing my health is rapidly degrading because of my teeth. I was hospitalized last year I had a upper GI bleed from an ulcer that had grown and erupted. I almost died do to blood loss I was continuously vomiting up. I spent 7 days in the ICU and had three blood transfusions and multiple other medications. And I had two endoscopy surgery to shrink the ulcer. But this was due to my teeth because I was constantly taking either Tylenol,or Excedrin to deal with my sever tooth pain and massive migraines which led to me developing a huge ulcer from continuous use of those pills over the years. I just want to become a healthier and more energetic person and have a second Chance in life being able to smile and laugh without the major tooth pain and constantly feeling depressed and insecure around people. I want to be able to have my picture taken without the feeling of judgement, and to have a conversation with somebody who isn’t looking at my messed up teeth and judge me as a bad person. Your smile says a lot to someone, and it reflects the person you are. So it’s really bothering me tremendously, both physically and emotionally. I’m posting a photo with this letter of my teeth so you understand my urgency and my credibility of my story. To be honest it took a lot of guts for me to do this cause I feel very uncomfortable showing anyone. So I hope you take my letter to be a 100% honest and sincere. I’m going to leave a link at the bottom of this page that will direct you to my PayPal.me account to leave a donation of any amount you find necessary that will help my cause. Again I just want you to understand my appreciation and gratitude and taking the time to read my letter. I’m really hoping for a second chance and give me the opportunity for happiness and being able to laugh and smile again with no regrets. And to end all my pain and suffering.

Hello, First I need to explain my entire situation so you know the financial burden on me. I’m originally born and raised in New Jersey. my dad passed away and always wanted to retire to Las Vegas, so my brother, mom and me moved to Las Vegas to honor my dad. in 2010 my mother passed away, completely devastated my brother and I, in 2015 I met someone online from Wisconsin and fell in love with her so I moved to Wisconsin to be with her.. We decided to be just friends and be roommates to share living expenses. Within that time I needed a car so I financed a car at 24.5 interest rate and at this rate will never pay it off. I still owe $4,900 on my car. My teeth I had a bridge in which came out I went to the dentist, got a few opinions and all of them said my teeth was bad and had to come out, so got dentures which I hate, can’t talk normal but I’m dealing with that, hopefully one day be able to get implants. it cost over $10,000 I can’t afford that, now my roommate tells me she wants to live alone so I need to get my own apartment on top of that I’ve never been in such a financial strain as I am now. What I’m asking for is $5,200 for my car payment to pay that off and bill on my dentures. I’m having problem finding a apartment with the money that I owe.
If you can find it in your heart to help me, I’ll be forever grateful. I can prove all of this. This is not a scam.
My name is Andria and I am 19 years old. My teeth have been terrible since I was young due to neglect as a child. As a result, I never learned how to properly conduct dental hygiene until I was about 12 years old, and by then I had all of my adult teeth. No amount of brushing or flossing could undo the damage that had already been done. I am in constant pain due to my bad teeth, and I cannot properly chew my food. All of my molars are decaying and two are completely broken with dead exposed nerves. I have previously gotten infections from another bad molar, and I was told that it could have killed me due to how long I had to wait to get it fixed. Now I am very afraid for my health, and it even keeps me up at night thinking about how I could get another infection.
I am on my own financially, making barely above minimum wage while going to school. I live with family but I have to pay rent and bills, and they are not understanding of my dental situation. After rent, paying half of the electric bill, half of the cable/internet, and food, I do not have any money left over to afford to get my teeth fixed. I’ve been dealing with dental pain since I was a kid, and just to have peace of mind about my health would be amazing to me. Root canals cost at least $500 dollars each, but at this point I would even settle for having them pulled.
If you can help at all, I would be ecstatic and so very thankful. Once I get to a more positive point in my life I will absolutely pay it forward. I always remember those in my life who have helped, even if it was just a little bit.
My name is Jessica and I am a 24 year old student in Ontario. I have been plagued with dental problems my whole life, but being an adult there is no help out there to cover the insanely high priced dental costs associated with fixing my problems. I need over $5,000 of dental work done and I am just not able to afford it on my own. I go to school full time, work part time, and volunteer in my spare time, but my dental issues are getting severe enough that it is almost impossible to eat solid foods, I no longer enjoy smiling and it has affected my self-confidence to an extreme. I am in school to learn health care and I really want to be able to help people and give back in my career, but I know if these dental problems aren’t addressed, I will not be able to commit to that 100%. I know that there are so many people out there that need help, but this would ultimately change my life. I try to live my life only doing good and looking out for others but I still was not blessed with good dental. Any amount of a donation to help me achieve this dream would be more than I could ever hope and I know that if anonymous donors helped me as soon as I am financially stable, I would do the same for others. Thank you so much.
My name is Michael Huck and I am 23 years old currently battling against Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. I have been fighting cancer for over a year now and since then my family has been reluctant to help, forcing me to do this all alone. My parents do not want anything to do with me and do not contact me and do not care to. My mom has put a restraining order against me for reasons that are absurd and she refuses to help. My father just doesn’t care and he never has. I am unable to work due to my disease and treatments which inhibits me from doing any physical activities. I have very limited family support for I was born in Germany and half of my family lives over there and doesn’t even speak English and my father’s side here in America do not even care of me. Since I was diagnosed last year in March I have been for the most part fighting this by myself. I goto treatments by myself, I stayed home by myself( In a group home now) and dealt with all this alone. I am tired of being “strong” as everyone tells me. I just want some help. My wisdom teeth are coming in and its hurting me so much and I don’t have dental… I cant work and I want to so bad. I have certifications in Welding but I just cannot physically do it anymore. idk what to do or who to goto. I am honestly desperate. I am not even from this state I am currently in, I just went to school here for welding and was diagnosed here. So I decided to stay here for the duration of my treatments. I have no source of income(Waiting on the approval of disability) and really no real support. I just need a break.
Hello, I am 21 years old female, who just want to feel confident in everyday life. Never, in my whole life experience, have I ever felt confident enough to achieve something, just because of a feeling that other people may judge me because of the way that I look.
I never smile, I am always down or moody and just because I do’t feel like smiling to the world. I am uncomfortable in my own skin and I want to end this. I want to be happy, to be able to feel confident and start to achieve something. I know that appearance is not everything, but nowadays everything is about the way that YOU look. I was always self-conscious and shy, was told that I’m too dumb or too ugly to reach anything in my life. Eventually I befriended depression and anxiety, which did not help me to feel better at all.
I feel pitiful because of the way that I am now. I have no friends nor people to talk to and only because I am afraid of judgement that I may receive.
I, nor my family, was never financially capable to solve my little problem, but finally, little by little, I am trying to reach my goal and finally trying to do something about it, but it’s not easy, it costs a lot of money and I don’t have that money. It would be way easier if someone would help me, but it’t not easy for me to ask for help. I can’t ask my family for money, because I know that they don’t have them, I don’t have friends to ask for help too, I don’t have well paid job so I can’t save money almost at all. I guess it won’t hurt to ask for help here, every penny is important to me and will help me to reach my goal, so thank YOU so so so much, if you decided to help me, I really appreciate it.
I am in need of major dental work and need to raise $6,720.00. I’m not usually in the habit of asking strangers for money but I have no other choice.
I am 62 years old and due to a disability I was forced to retire at age 45. My life prior to retiring was spent helping others now I need help. I became a Police Officer at the age of 21 and at the age of 26 I became a Federal Law Enforcement Officer. At the age of 34, at the start of the Gulf War, I enlisted into the U.S. military reserves and served for eight years while still employed as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer.
At the age of 41, while on active duty with the military, I was diagnosed with Graves Disease, by age 44 the disease had caused or aggravated other medical problems and I was not allowed to re-enlist into the military and I was also forced to resign my position as a Federal Law Enforcement Officer.
Since 1999, I have been receiving a modest Federal Pension which is currently $24, 600 a year. My wife works in the medical field and also makes a modest salary approximately $40, 000 a year, our combined income supports a family of four.
Not too many years ago our combined income would have put us in a pretty good place, we may have been considered mid middle income. Today we are the new poor, actually we are worse than poor because we make too much money to qualify for any type of help. We earn just enough money to pay our bills, mortgage, car insurance and put food on the table, but not much left over for anything else.
Since 1999 I have had open heart surgery, a number of minor surgeries, been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis and a number of other medical problems. We have excellent health insurance through my wife’s employer (that we pay for), I also have Medicare (which I pay for) and we have what is supposed to be the Cadillac of Dental Insurance Plans (Which we pay for), like I previously mentioned, we pay all our bills including all our medical bills but now I am in need of major dental work amounting to almost $9000.00 and I discovered that the Cadillac of Dental Plans is more like an ala carte menu, and the more serious the problem, the less it pays, which in my case comes to a grand total of $1,800.00 leaving me a balance of $6.720.00.
I don’t have the balance, I don’t qualify for any free government dental programs and we tried getting a loan. I was told our credit was good but our debt to income ratio was too high to qualify for a loan. Now that might sound like we live beyond our means, but our salary to debt ratio is high because in 2012 Hurricane Sandy hit the New Jersey Shore and we sustained $30,000 in damage. Our insurance company refused to pay to repair the damage, so we applied for a FEMA grant. FEMA offered us a loan instead, so we were forced to borrow $30,000.00 putting our Debt to Income Ratio at it’s max.
Hello, its been about 7 or 8 years now that I have been missing my front tooth. My baby tooth never fell out when it was suppose to so i went to an orthodontist got xrays done and they found the problem, there was an extra piece of bone blocking my adult tooth from coming down, after the orthodontist found out what the problem was he started working on my mouth immediately, he pulled the baby tooth removed the piece of bone that was blocking my adult tooth and then cut a slant in my gums in order to make room for the tooth, he did insist that i wait a month or two to see if the tooth would come down naturally which it did but when it came down it came down crooked so after i noticed i went back to the ortho and he told me that i would have to get braces and a minor surgery to get the tooth to come down so i went to get the braces my medical card at the time covered it i was a teen at the time and the next step was getting the surgery done but i couldn’t get it done because my medical card had stopped working (i turned 18) the ortho dentist took the rubber bands off the brackets and never removed the brackets from my teeth so fast foward til today. . . I still have old brackets on my teeth and i also lost some brackets, all I need is the money to actually pay for my procedure and braces i can not afford even a portion of what it cost (over $5,000) and thats why i am asking you all for help. I just want to smile without people being disgusted at my smile, i want my confidence back to 100%.
Hello all, well about a year ago my son I was riding a skateboard and hit some gravel in the road and fell and landed on his mouth on the concrete. It knocked out his two front teeth and scraped a couple the other ones. We got most of that fixed. We just took him to the dentist today May 12th and was shocked to find out that he needs $21,000 and dental work that consists of about 10 root canals, porcelain caps, fillings, and deep cleaning. My wife was recently let go from her job, and we have an ongoing lawsuit for ADA discrimination. Since she lost her job we have not had insurance for my son. Our attorney says that the case is probably worth about 2 million dollars but will probably take a year to 2 years to get an end result. I am doing all I can right now just to make ends meet. I work as a machinist Monday through Thursday, and in all my spare time I drive for Uber, but it’s still not enough. With my wife losing her job I am having to pick up all the slack. I pay two car payments, insurance, all the rent, all the bills, and have a mound of credit card debt that I’m trying to keep up with. I’m not asking for a handout as much as I’m asking for a loan until we can get this lawsuit out of the way. Anything will help. I have included a picture of the work that he needs done. I pray to God somebody out there can help as I do not know what else to do. This is causing serious Strife with me and my wife and I just do not know what to do anymore. Thank you for reading this, and have a blessed day.
￼My name is Hazel Donald. I am a university student. I am 21 year old now. My problem is that I don’t have perfectly straight teeth. Ever since I started to care about my teeth, I smiled and laughed less; because I feel insecure about it. My teeth are my flaw that I wish to make it flawless. Every time I smiled, it looked like I have missing one of my teeth and crooked and crowded. I prefer to smile with my mouth close, laugh with my hands covering my mouth. Why I did it? Well because if I didn’t, people will look at my teeth and I feel ashamed. My family and friends always teased me about my teeth. It hurt hearing that and this about my crooked teeth. Although, it was only a joke for them, but it is not for me. I was not born having crooked teeth, when I was small my teeth was fine. Until I decided to pulled most of ‘milk teeth’ by myself, yes by myself. Since then, my teeth grow crooked and crowded. Some people would tell me personally, that I would look prettier if my teeth were straight. Some would laugh at it. Until now that joke about my teeth still alive, which means I still feeling insecure. Whenever I’m having conversation with people, they never missed looking at my teeth. So, maybe some of you been thinking “Then just do braces, problem solved!” I wish it was that easy, but it was NOT. The fees for braces in my country it is just too expensive for me, I just can’t afford it. My family is financially unstable. My mum work as a cleaner and my dad is jobless. Plus, two of my brothers are still studying. See, my mum have to support us and pay bills at the same time. So I can’t just ask her to pay my braces fees. It will be too burden for her. If you were thinking “why don’t u just worked?” well guest what, I am a full time student and I don’t have the time. Everyone have their own flaw sometime their embraces, but most of the time their trying to fix it. For me I just want to fix it. It is okay for not having pointed nose, full lips, big eyes, big boobs and etc. All I want is perfectly straight teeth, that it and only that. I believe in braces, because just like people, your teeth will go through changes and mine will too. I really appreciate for every donation that you guys have made. Love you.
Hello! My name is James! So I am here yo ask for money. Its just that simple! Why? Because I need it! But in all honesty, there are things i would really like to do with my life! To begin, once I have enough money, I will have my teeth fixed! I have peridontitis, its a disease that breaks down your gums and bones in your mouth. I will let you look it up instead of writing it here. I will be doing this for several reasons, one is the horrible breath that comes with it. I am a people person, I love talking to, and making people happy! Which is very hard to do with stinky breath! I haven’t had a relationship in over 5 years because of this. So, anyways, besides that, I want to be able to start a business. I have a few plans, but, need to make a concrete decision on what it is that will make myself and others happy. I want to do something that helps others, but there are so many things people need help with! There is just so much more to say! I wish this was a recording so I could say EVERYTHING. Whatever money I received would either go to financial support to quit my job (at which I work 60hrs/wk with little pay), or, if it were enough, to start this business asap! Please consider me for your donation, and everyone else that needs it to try and make a difference somehow! Thank you!

Family asking for Money for ongoing Dental work for Mother’s cancer care. Also requesting money for dental work needed by daughter a victim of Secure DentalOne dental insurance scam.
- Hi there, if you’re reading this I appreciate it. My husband and I moved to Dallas for a job opportunity for him, but it turns out it isn’t paying as we thought, and rent is way higher in a city as we quickly found out. His parents were kind enough to help us with moving expenses but we are still in debt. His car is breaking down and needs a few major repairs (water pump, coils going out, overheats) but now that it’s warm he just wants to save the time and money that would be spent fixing the car (its old so something else would just pop up) and get a cheap bike to ride to work.
- As far as the crown goes, he went to a horrible dentist when he was a kid who filled his cavities and put sealants in, but left gaps. This caused the teeth to rot underneath the sealants and the only solution is a crown and/or eventual root canal. One of these rotting teeth broke in half last week but we just don’t have the money to pay the medical bills. He has already had 2 root canals in the last two years. He’s only 26.
- Basically we just need a few hundred dollars to cover a gap. Even if one of these things gets paid for it would help tremendously. We don’t know anyone out here and our families both live far away and don’t have the means to help us. Additionally just for the record, I work as a nanny when I can find work.
My name is Peter.
My father’s family is American and my mother’s family is Swedish.
All my life I have “fought” with my teeth. Because I have too short tooth roots my braces treatment were discontinued when I was younger, and the only thing that could solve the problem today is a surgical procedure. The problem is that my teeth are extremely protruding, so this treatment would be very costly. There is a surgery clinic that could help me and I know the cost of this surgery procedure.
Now I seek opportunities to help me with this and although I realize that the chance is small, I ask for help with some small contribution so I might get enough money to make this happen.
Apart from my protruding teeth, I have a plastic-coated teeth that looks more yellow than white. I got it when I was younger and fell off a bike. I would like to have my teeth in the same color.
Because my front teeth are so crooked, my bottom teeth has become twisted wrong.
(Because they receive no bite resistance.)
I don’t want to smile with an open smile and I am ashamed to show my teeth.
The cost of treatment and surgery is about $ 8,000.
It feels somehow wrong to ask for money and it is the first time in my life that I actually do this. It is amazing that there are people in the world who care about helping others.
Although the hope is small, I now put myself out there and ask the question.
I have tried to seek contributions from the community to this without result.
I would be grateful for only minor contributions and I am not expecting much.
I found your site on the internet and find it difficult to believe that there actually are people out there who offers what you do.
I understand if you give priority to other cases more than this.
But if you could see my plaster tooth cast I believe you would understand better.
I have pictures of my plaster tooth cast and a photocopy of the clinic’s cost estimate.
I wish you all happiness and prosperity!
