New Teeth For Christmas

I’m raising money for a family member who has already begun the process of having his teeth removed. This is due to advanced decay and the risk posed to his health. All of his teeth were removed in his upper jaw. He will need to have teeth removed from his lower jaw as well.   Due to the heavy expense and lack of dental insurance,  implants/partial implants are not a possibility. Instead, he is opting for dentures for the upper jaw and partials (like in the picture) for the lower jaw which will attach to the remaining teeth that can be saved.

 He is very young to have this work done, and it took a lot of strength and encouragement from his loved ones to begin the process. He works hard, and has been with his company for the past six years.  Unfortunately, it is a small business that does not offer dental coverage.

I’ve thrown a goal onto this request.  It is 25% of the remaining out-of-pocket cost, but any help is appreciated.
