dental work: My teeth have been bad since childhood. I need all of them cut out. They cannot be pulled

My teeth have been bad since childhood. I need all of them cut out. They cannot be pulled because they are so weak, they break when eating a sandwich. Are there any options for major dental work free anywhere near me in VA? I have asked the lions club for help with hearing aids (progressive hearing loss) But cannot find help for dental. Thanks!

Free Dental Work, dentures: My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a

My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a tumor that he had in his neck over a decade ago. He has zero insurance and my family's AGI is in the low $20,000 range. Primarily due to my father being unemployed and my mother being on permanent disability. Although he has been tirelessly been looking for work, he has been turned downed countless times due to his teeth. I believe that all of this has also caused him to become very depressed about his situation.

We live in Shiawassee County, Michigan, and I just need to know what my options are. I have about $1,000 saved so far, but I know that would not cover all of the required dental work and this is something that needs to be taken care of soon.

If I can find a solution that could fix my father's teeth, it would be a miracle for my entire family.

Thank you.

I have cerebral palsy which affects 1 side only and how I walk. Because of this disability I have fallen often. About 8 years ago I fell and hit right on my mouth. Because of that fall I damaged the bone on my lower jaw. The bone around a front tooth has slowly deteriorated to the point that to repair it the dentist with have to pull the tooth, build up the bone, and then replace the tooth with a porcelain crown--I have access to about $1300. to get started but will need another $2050 for full payment. I'm on SSI and my income is only $721.00/month. Medicaid will pay for the extraction of the tooth and I'm responsible for the rest. Any financial assistance would be appreciated. If you know of a church or organization that can assist that referral would also be appreciated.

dental work, fillings: I need immediate dental help - I don't know what to do. I've been unemployed for a year

I need immediate dental help - I don't know what to do. I've been unemployed for a year and cannot afford dental work. A couple years ago I had two root canals that I never got a crown put onto. A few months ago one of the teeth got injected and I had to have it pulled. The dentist then informed me I had a huge handful of cavities and could have the other tooth pulled eventually.

Besides having the one tooth pulled I also had a few filings down that I could afford. What I'm left with is my other root canal tooth hurting, I'm sure it's injected now. I think I need about 8 more fillings and a deep cleaning because my gums are noticeably receding and a couple teeth are starting to feel loose.

I've looked into financial assistance but I made just over the poverty guideline to qualify for anything. I don't have any credit either. I'm very much in despair right now. Can anyone in Chicago help?

Hello...

My name is Sheri, I'm 39, mother of 3 beautiful boys.

I posted this below a a couple of years ago with no luck, I'm to the point where I'm desperate!

.........................................................
About 6 years ago I got sick with a major infection in my mouth... Since then all my teeth are rotting out and I'm in constant pain. For the last 2 months I haven't been able to eat solid foods without being in so much pain its unbearable. My husband does not have health or dental insurance since he started his own business and since my teeth are so bad, nobody will hire me for a job. They assume I am a drug addict, and they treat me like an outcast. It's to the point where my health is getting very bad because of the contant infection in my teeth. The worst part of it is I've tried to do something about my situation, but it's hard when I cant get a job to get my teeth fixed... My husbands business is new, so we are broke. We hardly have enough money to pay for our bills, let alone a few thousand dollars for dental care. I can't find a dentist who will do payments. They all want the money before you walk out the door. Which unfortunatly we are unable to do.

For the past 3 years I hardly leave the house. It's so bad that I cry myself to sleep everynight, because of the pain and because of the humiliation. I haven't smiled in years... and it's effecting my children. They never really have seen me happy.

I'm asking for help. Which is something I never thought I'd have to do. If I don't get my teeth fixed soon, it will be harmful to my health. I'm willing to pay back what is given to me, if they want to take monthly payments.
...................................................................................................


I'm at my wits end, I really don't have anywhere to turn to at this point. My extended family has no money to spare, we're all broke it seems. My teeth are getting much worse..I have a swollen jaw as we speak. My weight is down to 109lbs (from 140) because I can't eat. I feel like I'm losing a battle with my health and my life. We try and try to save money, but it seems like as soon as we have almost enough to do something... car breaks down, unexpected bills, something always seems to take it all away.

If someone helps our family I would be so grateful. Like I stated above I would pay back any money that is loaned to us, written contract if needed.

Thanks so very much.

I need free dental. I grew up in not-so-great conditions. Little money, etc, single mother, a sister with disabilities so money for the dentist was little to none. I am too young for this and am terrified I'm going to die from it. When I was 16 I got a few caps and root canals but my teeth have gotten worse and are starting to fall out/crack. I have tried brushing them since then hoping it'll be okay but I don't understand why it's gotten so bad. I have a job but could never afford to pay for the costs of what needs to be done. I'm desperate. Seriously, and I need help. Please let me know of anything that can be done.

barter, exchange, dental: Finding affordable dental care will never be easy. But one thing I find afforable is

Finding affordable dental care will never be easy. But one thing I find afforable is barter. True, I pay about 5 to 10% in cash as a fee to the two barter exchanges I belong to. So how do YOU come to participate? First, you must be able to offer a professional service, like painter, auto rental or repair, webmaster, etc. You can see a complete list at itex.com of the many services offered. Or call my broker, Mel Murphy at 888.294.6393 to ask questions.

The key point is that this is NOT one-on-one barter. That is, the dentist doesn't need to accept your particular service in order for you to trade for dental work. You simply place the value of your service into a bank account maintained by the online barter exchange (in my example: www.itex.com). They pay the dentist in barter credits, which he uses to purchase services and products throughout the exchange. It's a win-win situation.

I use most of my credits for travel. So far, I've done multiple visits to Florida, Maine and New York on barter. - John

Hello Aidpage! I am a brand new member! I joined because I am trying to find some information on Dental services. 19 years ago I gave birth to beautiful little girl after 5 days of labor and the doctor literally pulling her out of me!!!She was 2 point away from being dead, rushed to Childrens Hospital on a breathing machine my daughter lay there motionless, she lost all muscle control. Its a very long story but I took her home 5 weeks later and have been caring for her ever since, going to Therapy 2 to 3 times a week, countless Dr. appointments and many many long nights.She never learned to talk or walk, where my biggest problem comes in is here. 9 years ago I ruptured a disc in my lower back. Nothing happened, no fall no accident. Only thing we could figure was the 10 years of lifting my daughter had taken a toll on my back! I was put on very high doses of medication, 30 mg oxicodone and 30 mg morphine. Had surgery, but came out worse. found a new Dr. that weened me down to a lower dose of med. 10 mg Methadone 10 mg oxicodone.and learned to deal with what ever pain was left over. Here is where I need help. All these years on the medication has RUINED my teeth! almost everyone of them has chipped or broken off completely I am not a drug addict, I had never done any drugs before these that are prescribed to me. I don't drink nor do I smoke cigarettes. I need to know if anyone knows of any programs out there that would be able to help me, my husband lost his job 3 years ago and we barely get our bills paid. I have medical threw DSHS but they took Dental away over a year ago. If you know of anyone whom can help or are able to help financially yourself I would greatly appreciate the information. I am a great person, as you can read in my bio I donate my time at my childrens school and bake and decorate cakes for children in shelters for their birthdays I have done 77 so far! I pay it forward in any way possible and promise any help I receive will be given back in what ever way I can!
Thank you for taking time to read this! Sorry so long!
God bless you all!
