Need Upper Denture Due To Cancer
I am a 46 year old female that lives in the Stockton, CA area. I was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in September, on October 3, 2011, I had the tumor removed and when they went in the cancer had spread farther than they thought. It destroyed the bone in my upper plate into my sinus cavity. Also, when I was in my 20's I had Hodgkins disease and had 43 radiation treatments and they killed off most of my salivary glands so my mouth has a very hard time producing saliva, leaving me with a very dry mouth constantly. I have a number of teeth that are broke off at the gumline. My two front teeth are broken or cracked due to the surgery I just had. I have one molar that I can chew on. I need one bridge on the left bottom of my mouth. The bottom teeth needs some filling but I believe the can be saved.
Please, if there is anyone out there that can help me, I would so appreciate it. Its been so long since I have had enough teeth to enjoy an actual meal. have no insurance and right now I am fighting with social security and they have no dental. If I can't find someone to help. Ill be stuck this way for the rest of my life. I can't remember the last time I smiled, teeth all showing. Thank you.
