I am trying desperately to find some help for my best friend Lori. She needs dentures badly.. she’s in alot of pain… She’s on CPP (a pension) and neither of us brings in much money but we have been getting by..she’s been whining about her teeth for a long while..pretty much has to live on pain pills and fill her mouth with that anbesol stuff..adult version of baby teething pain gel..and most days she can’t eat anything but soup..I didn’t really understand the extent of it because she never smiles anymore out of self consciousness.. when I met her she had beautiful perfect teeth tok such good care of them and pride…and she was told by dentist that she was brushing them too much..was wearing off the enamel..plus she had really bad gingivitis..it was a different name though but a worse version of gingivitis..some lost fillings..a few tooth extractions at the back…and her gums were receding.. they’ve just progressively gotten worse and worse and it’s at the breaking point now..so is she.. so anyhow she sucked it up and lived through the pain but it’s getting unbearable and the other day she opened her mouth wide to show me something and oh my god. Her gums have all raised like a dang skull..and she has many actual loose teeth. Before she had it in her head she wanted implants but they are way too costly so she’s finally accepted that she needs Dentures. Literally all her teeth have to be removed and get dentures. Which will of course allow her not only to eat again and be pain free but to smile again..so we called around to every dentist in town and Ottawa and nobody will take payments. Even tried dentacard financing and they said she needs a cosigner..I don’t qualify.. and there is nobody else we can ask…wishheck Ohip covered that stuff..CPP/Odsp will cover the tooth pulling up to a certain amount but not the dentures..she would rather kill herself than walk around with a mouth full of gums and no teeth. Shes only 54..She even said she’d wear second hand dentures but where the heck do you get those?? Plus they need to be fitted.. I searched the web for discount dentures…student teaching clinics..but can’t find anything to help her so I searched for a site like this where hopefully I can get some donation help and get her the help she needs. She’s in so much pain daily both physically and mentally and she doesn’t deserve this…and could be fixed easily but the money just isn’t there. Nobody will take payments..just full pay..she can’t do that. So I’m here to plead her case..I anyone out there can help with this it would be hugely appreciated and we always always pay it forward. Please..please help..I just want to see her smile again..
