I'm 24 and I need total dental reconstruction.
To give you kind of an idea on how bad my mouth is, just imagine what a persons mouth would look like after 11 years of chronic bulimia. I've been to several dentists and all have told me the same thing that all my teeth are shot, but still have a chance on saving them without turning to dentures quite yet because the bone inside my jaw is really good. Fortunately none have fallen out yet, but they're really tiny, like baby vampire teeth that are extremely yellow, with no enamel left to protect them.
My teeth ache constantly, I can't bite into apples or corn on the cob or anything of that sort because it hurts my teeth, and embarrassing enough to say, my breath is wretched even after I brush.
Dentists have told me it would cost $40,000 and even $50,000 thousand dollars for the work that needs to be done. I collect disability insurance and have barely enough to survive on as it is, so there is no way I'd ever be able to afford this amount.
If you are a dentist who is willing to help me and make my world a brighter place to live, not to mention a real challenge, please let me know. Thank you.
