Please help my Dad finally eat without pain

44584704_1578443769995904_r.jpegMy dad was urged to have his remaining upper teeth removed to get dentures, but an odd bone in the roof of his mouth has made this decision a very regretful one. The dentures now only cause him pain and he can barely bite through much of anything, let alone chew. We looked into getting him dental implants at ClearChoice, but the cost estimate is incredibly high. We need help. He is retired and I cannot bear the idea of spending what remains of his savings on this surgery. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease a few years ago and he has had a hard time keeping his weight up. Not being able to eat the way a person would normally has made it even harder and I fear that he is getting frail. I have never used this site to ask for help from strangers before, but I decided that now is the right time.

Any donations will go directly toward the dental surgery at ClearChoice. Thank you for reading this. Please share far and wide with your contacts. Update: We are currently looking at some other options to try to cut the cost in half. I will update the goal if we find one that dad wants to go with.
