Hi! I'm trying to get any help I can with getting my teeth fixed. I'm in a lot of pain everyday. When I was younger my parents didn't have the means of getting anything done when it came to my teeth. I needed root canals and from not being able to afford them my bottom front teeth fell out and I have bone loss. All of my teeth are breaking and rotting out. One of my front teeth at the top is half gone and it gives me excruciating pain. I'm embarrassed to smile or even talk to some people so I talk with my head down. I can't even find a job bc no one wants to hire someone with teeth like mine. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
I fully understand the whole teeth falling out thing but sadly with dentistry there are not too many options. I let two wisdom teeth basically to rot once the nerves had died (massive holes in my jawbone where the bone was rotting from infection and the same with 4 molars where the dentist was concerned about breaking my jaw during the extractions.
I spent thousands before that trying to get them fixed for absolutely no positive effect. At the moment I'm getting a 'cheap' smile back for $4000AUD or exactly $3000USD; and that is just basic dentures. I have no other advice; dentistry is plain expensive.
Maybe look for a job that does not require a perfect smile or lots of customer interaction. I can't see why girls shouldn't take machinery operating work (fork lifts, heavy vehicles, whatever). Work, save money for your teeth and then upgrade the job if you still want to. Whatever you decide, the sooner the better.
