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!
My name is Thoams. My mother’s teeth are in a critical condition. My father was made redundant 6 months ago and is in a bit of debt. Same as my mother. My mother went for a check-up a week ago, and the minimum bill to have her teeth replaced is £2875. This is without any pain relief or anesthetic during the operation. I am only 15 and my parents are struggling with the money situation. Most of our family have passed away, and we are fighting with our bones and teeth.
My mother is on minimum wage working as a cleaner. She is struggling with the house bills and with about £5000 dept. My father is a builder who is finished work now. None of them have a pension plan we are saving every penny. I go to a state school and the uniform costs were outstanding. We are still thinking about home education.
Food wise, we shop at Lidl’s finding the cheapest things. We have one car altogether, which is very cramped, and we are struggling with the tax and insurance. We had a written off car before and this used car we had a mechanical fault in the door and we had to pay £500. We are still struggling with the tax and insurance now!
We got a turkey from Lidl’s for Christmas. We had minimum vegetables and few vegetables. Present wise we hardly got anything. Just essential stuff for the house. We sometimes shop at the “one-pond shop” but that is too far away from us. Birthday wise, we don’t get much, if we do, it’s just the cheap socks or cheap shirts.
My education is very limited. We are struggling to pay for the bus fares to the school. My parents and I were thinking about cycling but that is too dangerous. We are all on the NHS and we have no private dentists or doctors etc. The gas bills are a drag. We dread every letter which comes through the post box because it will probably be a bill. Our whole life is just a mess.
I am trying to get as much work as I can. I tried washing neighbor’s cars, mowing lawns, cleaning windows. I am hardly earning anything. I try everything. The little “fees” for the school trips don’t help, I have even had to pull out a few!
Back to the main situation. My mother’s teeth. If untreated there will be a big black whole, and it will look disgusting. We all as a family try to pitch in and do the best that we can do. I just wish it did not have to come to this but the past is the past.
Any donations would be highly appreciated. Thank you.
I ask for help to pay for two operations. I have a friend who needs surgery here next week. He has serious problems with his teeth. It is very expensive to get his teeth fixed, but the more we wait, the worse get his teeth. I have asked various clinics, the price of the operation will cost 5000€. So I please ask you, I will do anything to make sure he can get the operation
Hello, Begging Money Community. My name is Desiree, I’m 26 years old from Ontario Canada. I suffer with having MS (Multiple Sclerosis) which makes it very difficult for me to work because it effects my hands, feet, and legs. However, apparently I’m not sick enough to be on disability, so because of that I still live at home with my lovely family. Unfortunately, my family has never been well off fanatically, Because money was so tight growing up I’ve only ever been to a dentist 3 times and so this happened. (the photo)
The reason I am making this add is because I have four broken teeth, all of which are my front teeth. They need to be surgically removed and then replaced with artificial partial dentures. I went in to get an easement of what the prices would be and on average its $200 a tooth removal and the partial denture is $1500 plus whatever taxes and other work might need done. I would put the cost at $2500, which isn’t that bad, but seeing as I am barely surviving as is, well I could just really use the help.
I really hate my mouth the way it is right now. It makes me depressed and so self-conscious that I can’t even talk to people. I feel ugly and unless I get them fixed no one will date me and I’ll end up all alone. At 26 years old I’m too young to be doing this but I am just so damn desperate. Please I’m begging you to help me. I can’t take having my head down all the time or mumbling every little thing I say.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read my entry, again my name is Desiree and I hope to hear from you. Have a great day

I currently work full time in the restaurant industry and have no dental coverage and have been slowly losing all of my teeth. I currently have none in the front and need full surgery and top and bottom dentures.
WITH YOUR HELP I CAN BE BEAUTIFUL AGAIN!!!
I can provide more detailed photos of my teeth and the desperate need via email.
These pictures are so publicly embarrassing to post and have brought me to the point of emotional and mental anguish. I’am a beautiful 47 year old woman that can’t even smile and keep her head held high anymore.
It all started with my eye teeth being baby teeth and my adult teeth being impacted and when I would lose one the adult tooth never came in and caused infections spreading to my other teeth.
This is causing problems with my work as I’am a cashier and face the public everyday 5 days a week, 8 hrs a day and come home in tears from embarrassment. Please someone help me??? Since this picture I have lost the other front tooth.
For Every $15.00 donation its one step closer to me living a full and active life again. I work for just over minimum wage and cannot get financing through any bank for this huge amount.
I have looked into having it covered by Manitoba medical via the hospital and its not covered. I have also looked into Dental Schools and they unfortunately don’t offer any kind of financing as well.
I have always been gainfully employed full time since the age of 16 and held a full time position with over 20 plus years managerial experience.
I have applied for numerous other jobs and had interviews for jobs that i’am over qualified for to bring in extra cash and no one is going to hire me looking this. WOULD YOU??
This is causing me huge migraines, chronic infections, depression and suicidal tendancies.
There is no worse feeling then not being able to kiss the man you love….
I live a very sheltered life…I don’t go to family functions anymore, out to restaurants or even eat on my breaks at work from embarrassment.
Every page view and $15.00 donation will give me the ability to love life again…please help.
Any moneys left will be donated to Ronald McDonalds Childrens Charity as I have been gainfully employed with them for over 15 years and believe in their cause. I have never missed working a Mc Happy Day and have a Ronald McDonald House here in my city.
I don’t know of another woman anywhere that would be as brave as me to post such personal pictures for the entire world to see…
Hello,I am a desperate 44yr old woman who’s been miserable for 10yrs.no health insurance and if so too expensive! I never have xtra money,I Asst.my elderly parents financially with rent and bills.yet I work as a caregiver? I never leave the house other than work.my teeth started falling out one by one as I became extremely depressed started not to care about my looks or health.can’t smile what’s the point? It would take a lot of money to extract the horrible teeth I have left then get dentures.I need some serious help,I have a lot of pride and maybe that’s why I let this go.I feel ashamed and this is so tough for me if anyone out there that is well off to help me it’s worth it.
When I was little, first coming into my adult teeth, the denist told my mom I had very little enamel and would need to be careful. As a teen I began experimenting with drugs and lost myself. I got clean for a brief time when I became pregnant with my daughter. Two years after giving birth I gave up. I took her to my mom and for a stay and relapsed. I kept planning to go get her…to be HER mom. But I was so lost I didn’t even know myself. That went on until JULY 17, 2012 I turned myself in and over to God.
I’ve been clean 3 years. I have my daughter full time. I attend church and try to give back.
Sadly, between the already thin enamel and my drug use my teeth were in very bad shape. I had my top teeth pulled 5 years ago and my bottom teeth pulled 2 months ago. My mouth doesn’t hurt all the time any more, which is a blessing.
Unfortunately, I’ve also lost some other things that while might seem small to many were quite huge in my life. I no longer enjoy smiling or even just talking in public. I no longer sing in our church choir. My words are often spurred and hard to decipher due to lack teeth for my tongue to use in helping form words and sounds.
I still talk and smile at home or with my family, of course,but I dread public situations.
I simply can’t afford to get dentures. I’ve looked into them and it will cost between $1,000 and $1,500 to get both top and bottom sets. I just don’t have it. Which is what brought me here…hoping for help.
My name is Marie Hughes. I write these lines to appeal for help for Ionel Rotar that has serious problems with his teeth and needs urgent help. We met Ionel in 2009 and since then he has been a part of our family. Ionel has gone through very difficult times. He grew up in a home with parents using drugs, where there rarely was food on the table and he was regularly beaten by his stepfather.
When we met Ionel, he was homeless. He had at an early age decided not to beg, and not to steal. Ionel walked a couple miles in Stockholm every day to collect empty bottles (for money by recycling them) while he searched for jobs when we met him.
Ionel got help through a church in Italy in 2007 when they pulled out 21 teeth that were broken and helped him to get dentures. He was thankful and it helped him for several years.
In 2011 we paid for a trip so that Ionel could go to Romania and we thought that he would be able to get titanium screws. He had contact with a dentist who had helped a relative and everything looked hopeful. We paid a lot for this, but he came home to our and his own disappointment with three new dentures.
Now the situation is urgent! Ionel has difficulty chewing. The prostheses gives him pain when he eats. He has on several occasions had inflamed gums and urgent stomach problems because he does not chew properly. The pain is constantly pulsating under the prosthesis.
We have been in contact with a good dentist specialist here in Sweden (see attachments). We are grateful that so much is covered by the insurance agency. But unfortunately, our financial situation is not such that we can fund, or take out a loan to help Ionel with the dental bill. If we could, we would not hesitate for a minute.
Ionel is an honest man who we want to see restored. Now we hope from the bottom of our hearts that we can get help so that Ionel can get his new teeth and stop feeling so much pain.
Since we couldn’t upload the photos so that they were large enough to read well, here are links to the dental surgery bill and a dental x-ray. The costs listed are in Swedish currency, and in the second link the total cost of 53,144.25 SEK (about $6,195) is shown:
With hope and love, Marie Hughes
Hello good people,
I… Don’t really know how to start. I never imagined my life would be the way it is today. I’m a 26 years old guy who lives alone with his beloved dog. When I was younger I had to quit studying to financially help my family. Ironically, I wanted to become a dentist, but now it is just an old dream. I don’t blame my parents, they are the best, I just blame my bad luck? I don’t know.
Straight to the point: four years ago I started to have bad breath, dental pain, and random blood loss from my mouth. A doctor told me I had something called “periodontitis”. I didn’t have the money to see a dentist so the disease got worse and, as of today, I already lost five teeth. And it gets worse every day. I’m in a constant pain, I cannot properly chew my food so my stomach hurts often, and I don’t smile anymore because… Well…
I recently visited a private dentist and after the visit, he asked for 1.800 €. I have a part-time job as a waiter and I earn 550 € per month; I can barely pay the rent and buy the food for me and my dog. Sometimes I can’t pay the rent in time so I ask my landlord to procrastinate and, as you can imagine, it’s not a good thing. Now I have no one to ask for help, so your kind heart is basically my last chance. I don’t want an aesthetic treatment for my teeth, I just want them to be healthy. I just want to feel good for once and live my life normally like any other guy of my age, without suffering, without pain.
1.800 euros… If happiness has a price, this is it for me. I will accept ANY kind of help from you: even 2 cents could help me a LOT in this dark moment of my life.
I thank you for your time and for your generosity. I will be forever grateful to those of you who will help me.
I don’t know what to do any more I’m trapped, almost a waste of time! I used to love to smile but now I can’t remember when I last did? I started with postnatal depression about 14-15 years ago I just had a son and I should of been so happy but it wasn’t, yet I didn’t know why! Anyway after a year I got help and things seemed ok, then I had my 2nd son and I tried so hard not to get it again that this time it was 5 times worse and got on tablets in fact I tried many till I got the right one so more years went on and I wouldn’t go out the house for days-weeks and months and I was up and down then got told I was bi-polar 😔 I started getting bad pains everywhere and went for tests and more test but in the end I was told I had server fibromyalgia and slowly the pain was just to much so bad I wouldn’t go out anywhere and looking after myself is something I stopped doing! My body got weaker and I got so tired I just couldn’t say awake, I didn’t ever have any energy and lost touch with life, my teeth started crumbling away and toothache was so bad everyday I’d cry, I put on weight that made my fibromyalgia worse and just didn’t do anything so I missed birthdays, holidays that were booked, funeral, school plays, parents evening, trips with the kids everything stopped and now it’s been well over 18 months since I left the house, I can’t win! I don’t go out coz I’m so embarrassed by my teeth but I know if I got my teeth fixed I could start my life- teeth fixed-means be able to leave the house-so I can get help for my bi-polar- means I could go gym and try be active-so my pain will ease coz of exercising- so I can look after myself =getting a life, being a good mum & one day be a wife, I could look in the mirror and not cry myself to sleep and maybe stop hating myself! I’m the person who will help anyone if I can help I will, I’m a good person who just wants to live and I just want to get some teeth implants Czech I’m only 33 years out and the thought of false teeth scares me to death but if someone could donate or help me even if I have to pay back every penny I will and if I get my life sorted I’m hoping I might be able to help someone else, I never ask for anything and if someone needs help more than I do I’d always want that person to get the help first, I can only ask and if you’ve read this and can’t help its just nice you took a look xxxxx Kim in Manchester UK
Hello, my name James. I know realize I should have gone to school to be a dentist with the rates that are charged!! :) I have donated to these causes before and never thought I would find myself on the receiving end. I have a request that I hope you could help me with. First, I will explain a little about myself. I am married, the father of a daughter and 2 step-sons. I work full time and when not working, I am usually doing house work at my home, in addition to taking care of my mothers’ house for all repairs, maintenance, yard work, etc. She has been windowed for several years now. I also help out around my mother-in-law’s house when I can too, due to my wife’s step-father having a stroke and left him unable to do anything around the house.
I try to take care of my health as best I can. I go in for yearly physicals, have been to bi-annual visits to the dentist. I have inherited my mothers’ “chalky” teeth, despite trying desperately to maintain them the past 4o+ years. At my most recent visit to the dentist, I have been told that my teeth are getting worse and now I have gotten to the point where they cannot “patch” them anymore. I have been given a few options, one costing around $50,000 and another procedure costing about $30,000. That is the kind of money I just cannot get a hold of or raise on my own. I obviously am going for the “cheaper” option. I am now to the point where it is causing me health concerns and need some help. I have cried myself to sleep many nights now toiling over this. It could not have come at a worse time, with my daughter ready to graduate and start college, and a step son soon to follow, in addition to all the other small things that life throws at you.
I have prided myself with being able to handle my own and take care of my family, putting their needs above my own. I write this letter with such embarrassment, realizing now that I have come to the point of barely having my head above water.
I would be willing to accept anything that you could help me out with and would forever be in your debt!!
A smile, it is something that comes so easy to people. Not I, I am much too embarrassed about my smile. Sure as a child you smile all the time, but as teenager something happens. You suddenly become aware of all the imperfections. My imperfection is my smile. As much as I would love to give a toothy grin I don’t. I keep my mouth shut, tight lipped in a small modest smile. I give people the famous Mona Lisa smile.Too afraid to show my real smile.
My teeth have very little enamel, too much soda during childhood I suppose. But really who could blame the child when it was the norm around them to drink 10 soda cans a day. I quit drinking soda already. I went cold turkey in the 8th grade, but by then the damage was done. I was left with brittle teeth with very little enamel. They take on an almost translucent quality. I also have a “chipped” tooth. It is my first premolar and I am able to feel actual gum if I stick my tongue in it (definitely not good).Its more of a 1/3 of a tooth really, that somehow hung in there. Because of all this I need caps, which could be up to 1,000 dollars per tooth. I will need to completely replace that “chipped” tooth. A dental implant with crown could cost $4500 (all of this not including x-ray,scan, anaesthesia, extraction cost, etc).
I don’t even smile by myself anymore. The reason being is when I smile , not only are my less than beautiful teeth shown but I am left with red and deep smile lines. Oh sure the red color goes back to normal but I am left with those lines, making me look much older than my actual age. I’ve noticed those smile lines.Funny how something so joyous as a smile can leave something so damaging to one’s image. Not only the image of oneself but other people’s image of me as well. People always tell me I look sad or tired because of these lines. People always tell me to smile. What they don’t know is, it is because of those rare smiles,that I have those deep lines. Smiling will only make them worse.
These lines, the result of crooked teeth and a bad bite. My parents never got me braces. Price range for braces around 5 to 7k. My parents thinking, if they didn’t have them, why should you? Of course they didn’t have the same problems I have with my teeth. Sometimes in the morning right after I wake up, I feel a pain. One of my teeth is pushing against the other, just making my smile worse. Crooked teeth and a bad overbite. Because of my bite I also need orthographic jaw surgery. Which ranges from 20,000 to 40,000 dollars, yikes! Hopefully straightening my teeth and fixing my bite means I will no longer have deep and red lines appear every time I smile.
So what i’m asking you is to donate to bring back the simple joy of being able to smile again. I want to be able to show the world how I really feel. Make me be not afraid to smile. To not be the only one not smiling in the room when a precious newborn is brought in. To give a friendly smile to someone who looks like they’ve had a rough day. For me to be able to finally smile along side friends. To give joy to others. You know what i’m talking about, that happy feeling you get when someone gives you a beautiful and genuine smile. I want to be able to do that. Donate and not only will you bring back happiness in my life but in the life of others.
with love “Tisha”
My name is Neena and I am 33 years old. When I was younger I sucked my thumb and have pushed my top set of teeth outward and have gaps. At the age of 18 I was working to save up money for a brace and also that year was about to start university . That same year I was forced to go abroad and marry a complete stranger. I spent the next 10 years hiding from my family as well as dealing with a very bad case of post traumatic stress disorder.
I have finally managed to start piecing my life back together and feel that I can now start off from where my family destroyed my life. My teeth however are such an issue that they are stopping me from being as social as I would like to be and I feel very sad a lot of the time that I finally have the freedom I always wanted but now feel as though my teeth are stopping me from achieving the best life possible for me and my daughter. It has been a struggle to get back on my feet and I am proud of what I have achieved since my ordeal but paying for dental work is very hard at this time and I would hate to waste more time being scared inside.
Hundreds of girls each year go through what I went through and I know my situation is no different from theirs but I am a giver and always have been. I wear my heart on my sleeve and would give someone my last penny if I thought it would help them. But I need help now and would be grateful for the rest of my life to anybody who could help me.
I am a single mother with three beautiful daughters. I had my first child when I was 18 and so my entire adult life I have struggled to provide for my children. Their needs have always come before mine. I haven’t had proper dental care since I was 13 years old, and I am now 36. I went to a dental clinic and had one of my teeth pulled about 8 years ago and they also “fixed” 2 of my front teeth, but they did a poor job. For that reason, as well as financial reasons, I have not been back to a dentist.
I have always put my kids first. I do my best to give them what they need and occasionally what they want. All the clothes I own were either given to me or I bought them used (garage sales, thrift stores). I don’t have much, I’ve learned to live without much. Now my 18 year old daughter is pregnant and that will be one more person I will have to sacrifice for. I don’t mind taking care of them, they are my world, but at some point my needs must be met.
I have very bad teeth, they cause me health concerns at times. I have constant sinus infections and have had more abscesses than I care to remember. The pain and difficulty of doing something as simple as eating is bad enough. But the emotional pain from embarrassment and ridicule from others is far worse. I work in public and it’s hard to be good at my job when I can’t smile at people. I actually went on eBay and spent $5 on a temporary tooth repair kit. That has helped some, but it’s only temporary. And it doesn’t help with pain, it just makes my teeth a little less hideous.
I hate asking for help. I feel like I have to work for what I have and handouts are usually for lazy people who don’t want to work. But no matter how much I work, how much I try, this is something I cannot do on my own. I have some dental insurance at my work but it isn’t much. I’m afraid I won’t be able to cover the costs of the extensive dental work I need. But my biggest fear is that someday my dental health with become so bad that it will kill me. I’ve heard of people developing blood infections and heart problems because of poor dental health. I’m scared that I will reach that point, it will get that bad because there is nothing I can do to fix my teeth. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My name is Marisa, I am a single mother. I am the one that never ask for help and has always helped others. This year has been the roughest for me. My daughter is 8 and special needs and my son is 2. I lost my job a few months ago. I have been searching for a new job, but i keep being told the same thing. We can not hire you because of your teeth. i was in an accident a few years ago causing me to ruin my top front teeth. I was getting treatment on them but the dentist will not see me anymore. So i must go to another dentist and just have my teeth pulled and dentures placed, however i cant afford it. Im in consent pain. I know teeth can lead to other health problems, so i just want them gone out of my mouth so i do not have to worry about it anymore. For extractions alone it will cost more then i could ever dream of. Anything will help and once i get a job I am willing to pay everyone back that is able to help or offer my social media skills to a business or anything else anyone can think of. I want to not be embarrassed anymore
Hello, I’m in desperate need for money to receive major dental work. I do have dental insurance through my job but have to pay 3500 up front before dentist will work on me. It’s hard for me to save money due to I have a son with type 1 diabetes and we both have celiac disease so we have larger than
Normal medical and grocery bills. I would greatly appreciate any help I can receive and will one day return the favour. Anyway the celiac disease has done major damage
To my teeth cause of the amount of steroids I have taken over the years which caused my bones to weaken and so on. Now that I have a majority of my health back I would like to look normal again and be able to smile without being embarrassed. Luckily for me my wife doesn’t seem to care that my teeth have gotten in such bad shape but I know she looks at me and wishes I was the way I was when met so that’s why I’m in such need for help. So that’s my story thank you for taking the time to read it. Also I am married (15yrs) have 2 kids.
I lost a few teeth in combat in Vietnam 1968 in a fire fight with the NVA.
Yhe va had lost my dental records so I could not get help from them unless I had proof.My whole platoon was injured to the point they all went into the hospital never to return to the field.I have written to various Congressmen but they all dropped the ball.The quality of the VA is terrible and I need this money for outside help.There is much more to this than all of this and I swear this is the Gods honest truth.I can not eat properly and do not have a smile,this problem has been likr this for 45 years,I put my life life on the line for the people of this country and my country can not fix my teeth which I lost in combat.
My name is Eric. I am 43 and I recently lost my job. I had a job of 20 years and worked with a lot of bad chemicals and wanted to better myself when my son Joshua was born so I could be around as long as possible since God blessed me late in life with him. I went back to school got my GED and made a career change. I got a new job that I loved, got a promotion after being there only a couple months. Been there almost a year and was recently told the company was closing down and relocating the work to their work to their other Facilities in the United States. I was devastated! I am now out of work and my insurance benefits have been cancelled. My son was recently in an accident and his front teeth were broken and has to have surgery to fix and the dental veneers are very expensive and i can’t afford to have it fixed now that I lost my job. I love that little boy with all my heart and it kills me when he says daddy my teeth are broken and can’t eat. . He is an amazing little boy and can hit the heck out of a baseball at the age of 3. He has great eye/hand coordination.
If you can please help us I would greatly appreciate it. Anything at all would help. God bless you!
I am a second grade teacher from rural Missouri. At this moment my financial situation if very strained. I have a family of 5 and my husband has had some health issues this year. He had to leave his job and he is going back to school for a career change that he can physically handle. We are living off of my income of $1700/month which is very hard to do. We have cut every expense that we could but we are still in the red every month. I recently went to the dentist because of tooth pain. I could only afford to get one tooth fixed. I still need another root canal, and three crowns. There are pictures to show a huge hole of one of my teeth where its rotted to the nerve and my front teeth are cracked from when I was a child and had them patched up. My family is behind on our mortgage payments, and have we are short $500 every month to pay our bills so dental finances are non existent. Since I am a teacher I have a very social job which makes me very self conscious about my teeth. My dentist work up says I need about another $5,000 in work that needs to be done. This is also including a night guard for my TMJ. TMJ causes lock jaw and frequent headaches. I would greatly appreciate any help that I can get. God bless!
I need a full set of implants. I have watched my teeth deteriorate over the years it is has been a horrifying experience. I first started having problems many years ago and because of my heart condition, many dentist would not provide service.
Most of my teeth are broken and loose and the front teeth are growing outward.
I am ashamed to smile or laugh because my teeth are ugly. I have tried to get into a program that would help but it is not offered in my area. I have contact several dentists and my insurance does not cover the procedure. It is hard to eat or drink foods that are warm or cold. I am afraid with all the bad teeth, it could pose a greater health issue since I have a heart condition.
Thank you for listing.
Please, just take one moment of your time and read what I have to say…
I am literally crying my eyes out while writing this out. I am young male that is sixteen years of age and my teeth have made my life miserable. I cannot bare to look in the mirror at my hideous complexion. I hate how I look to the point I don’t even have the confidence to talk or interact with people for fear that they will laugh at me and my ugly teeth. Because of my disgusting teeth I constantly am feeling depressed and am also getting picked on at school just about everyday. Whenever I do smile I worry that because I am so ugly no one will ever like me for who I am so I consequently try to avoid opening my mouth at all costs.
I cannot afford it all on my own at this point in time as I am a full-time secondary school student with no medical card or insurance of any kind. I have gone to two different orthodontists and even with the payment plan my parents and I would not be able to afford it. As a last resort, I have put together this fundraiser in hopes of raising the money.
Any generous contribution will greatly be appreciated and hope you help my family and I in this time of need.
They say that smiling/laughing is the second best thing you can do with your teeth. I can only hope that day comes sooner rather than later. All I want to do is feel beautiful and smile with confidence alongside my family, friends and all the priceless pictures yet to be taken that will last a lifetime. Hope you understand:(
I am 43 years old and have a part time retail job at a local department store. I have no health insurance and nothing remains of my savings. I pretty much lost everything, except my home, when the company I worked for went out of business, several years ago. I have some major dental issues and a recurring oral infection that results from gum disease. Basically, my teeth have all gone bad because going to the dentist is a luxury I cannot afford. I have a failed root canal that has split and several others that need to be removed. I need to have oral surgery to remove the remaining root canals as well as my other remaining teeth and need both, upper and lower, denture plates.
If there is some kind of program that would provide these services at no cost, I would be most appreciative if you would share that information. I live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and have limited transportation.
It has become increasingly difficult to eat anything besides very soft food and the infection is painful. I just look forward to the day that I can eat normal food again and my mouth doesn’t hurt. Any donation you can spare would be greatly appreciated and I am truly grateful for your help.
I never meant to become a doormat. Still, I am covered with muddy footprints. I will try to keep this short and to the point.
I have suffered with depression for my entire life. I have deep shyness, social anxiety, borderline personality disorder. I am in the care of a psychiatrist now and I am on meds. I hardly said a word all through school…..all the way through grade 12. I did not think I had anything of value to say, and I thought I would be laughed at for having an opinion of my own. God forbid I speak up! Yes, it was torture. I always wondered what was wrong with me; I so desperately wanted to fit in but always felt like a total zero. No one told me I was a zero—I just believed it all on my own.
I married three abusive men in succession. I divorced all three of them. I had three children with the first husband and one child with the second husband. I have a hard time having to face the truth: I chose these men. Why? That is the question. Did I ignore red flags? Do I really think so low of myself that I think abuse is all I am worth? I do know that I was far too trusting, both with my emotions and with my personal information……finances, for one. I thought that being kind and giving would make others in my life the same way. Oh, how wrong I was.
The divorces left me barely able to survive financially. Then: five years ago I got fired from a job I loved. Work peers I thought were my friends stabbed me in the back and told lies about me. I believe this is because I have a very kind and giving heart; I was the easiest to “get rid of”. I was devastated anew and spend six days in the psych ward at the local hospital. I could not believe that anyone could be so cruel as to get me fired. Perhaps I am naive; people CAN be cruel.
I had to live off a line of credit to be able to pay my bills and my mortgage. Within a year and a half, I was $10,000.00 in debt to the line of credit. I did land a very good job at this time, but I was so in debt at this time that it was all I could do to survive.
Then, five years ago (around the same time I got fired), a fellow named Scott contacted me on Facebook. We had worked together thirty years before. He liked me then and had held a torch for me all along. We soon got involved, but I did not like his living situation. He was living with his twelve-year-old twins and their mother! I told Scott I was out of that ugly picture, but he begged me to stick with him. He told me he was living with his ex for the sake of his kids and that there was no sexual relationship between him and his ex. I thought, I will keep my eyes open for a more suitable man and just see Scott on the side. No woman in her right mind would date a man in that type of situation!
Just six days ago I broke it off with Scott for good. I had tried several times over the five years to end it but Scott always spoke if his love for me and that he was working so hard just for us so that we could be together some day. I continued to see him and always told myself that my eyes were open for someone better. This someone else has not materialized, but seeing Scott was causing me to have suicidal thoughts……….I was more depressed than ever. None of his promises were kept.
At this point I must mention that I was diagnosed with stage 2 – 3 cancer fifteen months ago. I had major surgery to remove part of my colon and I went through chemo and radiation for eight months. A couple friends of mine actually said, “Of all people, Jane, why YOU? You have had it so rough already………….Why cancer now on top of everything else?”
There is more. I am afraid to say this because I feel so terribly guilty and stupid. Scott and I started a business almost two years ago. Scott had bad credit so I opened several accounts to start the business. Scott said to me he would make me RICH. He had also promised me that he would be living with me five months after the business started. Awesome, I thought! I get to live with the man I love and we will have a viable business to boot!
He never did introduce me to his family. He introduced me to his friends as his FRIEND only. He never did move in with me. He told me it was because he was having mortgage trouble. So…..I continued to see him until six days ago. For my sanity, I had to get away from him. I am left owing $30,000.00 to credit cards and two credit lines. Yes, these accounts are all in my name only. Scott sold the business two weeks ago—(he did keep me in the loop about the sale.) He fixed his mortgage situation with the $45,000.00 he made and bought into another business. He is not speaking to me since I told him WE ARE DONE……….now I am deathly afraid that I am left holding the bag for the business debt on top of my already dismal situation. GOD HELP ME…
I am writing to you not to complain about all the abusive and deplorable men I choose to hang out with, but because I am losing my teeth. My teeth have been bad for many years, and I have always been waiting for the right opportunity to get them fixed, straightened, whitened, and all the rest. That opportunity always eludes me. I know, much of the reason for this delusion is my own fault. I will never deny this. I could ask for resolution of ALL my debt, but I am responsible for it, and me alone. What I am requesting is $10,000.00 for teeth that are nicer to look at. I would be much more confident and alive with nice teeth.
Like I said, GOD HELP ME. Thank you for taking the time to read my sad tale.
Single mom with serious dental/health problems
Ten years ago, I was not aware of the fact that the mercury amalgam fillings
in my teeth are responsible for the vast loss of my memory and my vision.
While many people have amalgam fillings in their teeth, few are aware of the
danger it poses to their health. Having Mitral Valve Prolapse, the bacteria
and mercury evaporation from my ten amalgam fillings are a constant threat
to my heart. My Immunologist warned me to have them removed many years ago,
being without insurance, there was very little I could do. I am in need of
extensive dental work in order to safely remove these ten very toxic mercury
amalgam fillings, which “reside” in my mouth since several decades and are
deteriorating my health. I have other associated dental problems such as
extensive bone and gum damage, lesions on my gums and a permanent infection
of my throat accompanied by a permanent low grade fever. Because of my
Immune Deficiency (I am missing Immuno Globin A), the restoration of my
teeth has to be done by a biological dentist. The cavitations from teeth
that were removed and from root canals are destroying my jaw bones. This
bone loss in my jaw can be alleviated by a bone transplant. Several teeth
would need to be extracted and I would need four crowns.The dentist told me
that I also need braces because my teeth are not lining up, as a result I
have what is called Bruxism. I grind my teeth in my sleep because my teeth
cannot rest since they are misaligned. This causes the corrosion of more
mercury while I sleep. Several of my teeth need to be covered with veneers
and I know that during the removal of these fillings I have to be on an IV,
to chelate the toxic mercury that will leak into my blood stream
immediately. I have spoken with, and seen several holistic dentists,
however, I know that a dentist that has been trained by Dr. Huggins (
Huggins Institute) is best suitable to do this very dangerous job for me. If
the Huggins protocol is used, my chances of recovery will be the safest. A
test has to be done to establish how much mercury is in my organs, before
the treatment can be started.
I am now 54 years old and I have been raising my 13 year old daughter on my
own. I have been without health insurance since ten years. All I can think
about and all that I ever seem to dream about is that I will be able to
laugh and feel the health and strength that I used to take for granted, and
feel beautiful when I smile. I thank God that I have been able to come this
This is a mountain that I have been trying to climb on my own.
I would be incredibly thankful and appreciative for any help that I could
receive in order to gain back my dental and over all health, so I can
continue to raise my daughter, be there for her as she gets older and smile
with her in confidence again.
I Forgot How to Smile
Please help! No one will hire me since I do not have any teeth on the upper
part of my mouth. Was in an abusive relationship and lost first four front
teeth. Got out of it, but was left with missing teeth. I would like to get a
good paying job, but with no teeth it doesn’t help.
Thank you so much for your help!
Please help me smile again!!
I am a 28 yr old woman who has now turned to advertising to see if I can get
any help in trying to raise some money for some dental work that I
I have a condition called hypodontia, which means that only a few off my
baby teeth would have adult teeth. I had 9 teeth that I knew had no adult
teeth underneath them. They lasted pretty well but last year I had to have
the 9 teeth removed as they were becoming wobbly and impossible to eat with
them. I was given dentures as a temporary measure but I really couldn’t get
on with them. I found them uncomfortable, hard to eat with and felt very
conscious wearing them. I was hoping to get dental implants done and was
hoping to get this done on the NHS but have since been told that this is not
possible and I will have to pay for all my treatment myself.
Since having the 9 teeth removed I don’t use my dentures as I really can’t
get on with them and would feel more self conscious wearing them. I hate the
fact that I am only 28 and have a lot of teeth missing, which is why I have
decided to place an ad.
I am going to have to have 9 implants plus some other work and have been
advised that this will cost around £25k!! I work full time and trying to
raise as much money as I can but this sort of money is impossible to save.
If there is any generous person who is willing to donate any money, no
matter how big or small this would be very much appreciated.
I am very desperate and just want to become confident and be able to smile
again. I never smile showing my teeth so I would love to be able to smile
again and I do hope that this dream comes true :)
Dental help needed
Recently I was diagnosed with a bone disease that has caused all of my teeth
to become loose. My dentist says that I will have to have dentures. I care
very much about my appearance so the dentist suggest a permanent prosthesis.
This procedure is very expensive and my dental insurance pays very little
since it is considered cosmetic. As of now I can hardly eat anything and the
discomfort is very annoying. The sooner I can get this taken care of the
better. With help from family we have come with about half of the cost. I am
asking anyone who can spare a dime to please, please help me. I have always
been an independent person and hate asking anyone for anything but this time
I really need the help. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated more
than you will ever know. Thank you in advance for your help.
My name is Larry and I live in Florida. I’m in a very tough bind, I’ve been
unemployed for two years. I’m doing odd jobs to get bye but it’s never quite
enough and what’s worse I need some dental work done. What I need and can’t
afford is dentures, I can’t even afford to see the dentist, I do not have
any teeth in my upper arch and I only have 8 teeth in my lower arch. Maybe a
dentist could save the bottom one’s. I would appreciate any type of
donation, anything would help. If you could THANK YOU VERY MUCH
please help me and let me smile again!
I have extremely horrible teeth and I don’t know what to do anymore. I have
just recently passed 30 and I haven’t been able to smile in many many years.
It has led me to extremely solitary and avoidance friends, family, the
general public and doing anything really social. i am afraid to go out in
public and talk to people, when i do talk to people i either cover my mouth
when i talk or i hardly move my lips, laughing i cant do, and if i mange to
i cover my mouth.
i used to be out going and funny, now i am very anti-social and others
think i am just a snob. its not that i dont want to talk to them, its that i
cant talk to them in fear of them judging me of my dental appearance. it has
really affected my whole life. im very ashamed and self-consious of them. my
teeth have affected my self esteem, my personality, my weight , my
outgoingness, and has giving me a very low selfesteem, i am afraid to even
look in the mirrow and see my teeth,
every day for over the last five years i have suffered with an overwhelming
load of anxiety and depression that makes me think of unhealth and unruly
thoughts. i am tearing up now just thinking of it and how bad it has gotten.
i know it does sound easy just to go to the dentist and get it all fixed,
but its not that simple, i am currently unemployed and am only collecting
Employment insurance at this time. and dont have any medical inssurance. my
only last resort is for me to ask you if there is anything you can do to
help me? live and enjoy life again? fix my teeth? i dont want to lose my
teeth and am at my breaking point. please help me and let me smile again!
Help Me Fix My Teeth Please
I am asking for help to fix my teeth. I broke a large piece off my front
tooth two years ago as a result of a botched filling by a scammer dentist
when I was young. In that two years my pretty teeth have gone downhill. The
last time I visited a reputable dentist I was told my minimum cost would be
in excess of $2,000 as the broken tooth was dead and has created a fast
developing periodontal desease below the gums which may be killing other
teeth and gums. I have to have serious scaling under anesthesia just to get
a consult to get my tooth fixed. I am a responsible working individual, the
cost is just too much for me right now but I know this snaggletooth is
holding me back from promotions and relationships. Not to mention my health
has been deteriorating over the last 6 months. Not bad I can just tell by
more headaches, pain in my teeth, serious wear on my face and not to mention
I read I could have a heart attack from the periodontal disease alone if
left too long. I always had a wonderful smile and now the impact is just
bringin me down, please help me to feel good about opening my mouth to talk
to people again.
Help with dental expenses
Last week my oldest grandson asked me why I don’t smile anymore or go out
to events with them. I almost cried, I just didn’t know what to tell him.
Because I am having so much pain eating and having two broken teeth and one
front tooth that is about to break. I don’t want my family to know how bad
off I am. I made choices 11 years ago to move in with my daughters to help
out with childcare. With the small amount of income I get, I can’t afford
dental/health insurance. I need some help with dental expenses so I don’t
have to be ashame to smile again. Any help will be greatly appreicated.
Losing my teeth
I am a woman in my mid forties and I am losing my teeth. Pieces have already
chipped away and left nothing but the metal fillings I got when I was
fifteen. I can only chew on one side of my mouth. I need help to save my
teeth, or be able to buy dentures if it is already too late to save them.
Any amount will be greatly appreciated. I will supply dental work to all who
donate. I work in Customer Service, so I need my teeth. Thank you, and may
God bless you all.
I have been trying for years to make a new start. I was working as live in
full time care giver but they never really paid me. Now my teeth well I only
have 13 left and I am desperate to go back to school and finish up. I have a
pell grant but need a scooter or buss and train fair to get to the college.
I would love my first 4 top teeth done and the bottom right row that’s too
badly rotten removed. I am close to 40 now and I am so wanting a life I
should have had. But I need a hand up.. not so much a hand out.. cause I
plan to return favor to another in need as soon as I can. Thank you for
