I recently lost my husband of 34 years. He had no insurance and nothing to fall back on financially. The last 10 years I was a stay at home mom taking care of my children and my husband with a severe back injury unable to work. Money was extremely tight. Going to the dentist was not an option. I did my best to care for my teeth and gums under the circumstances. I brushed and flossed regularly. I was told 30 years ago that a had peridontal disease and my dentists recommended treatments which I refused. The last couple of years I have had such bone loss my teeth are falling out. The teeth are not decayed there is just no bone In my jaw to keep them in my mouth. I was always complimented on my beautiful straight/white teeth. I am having to look for employment and I am so embarrassed and ashamed of my teeth or the lack of. It is keeping me from being gainfully employed. I have no self esteem anymore. I need to get my teeth fixed or at this stage get dentures. I have no money but would be willing to make payment arrangements when I become employed I just can't find a dentist willing to help. Of course I can't speak to any dentist in person only their front office people that offer me no suggestions they are just sorry they can't help. I have contacted dental schools in Dallas and you have to get on a waiting list which you are charged a fee which is not refundable if you are chosen the deposits are applied to your cost. Please does anyone out know where I can get help? I am so desperate
