Jaw Surgery Needed After Job Loss

This was my mother and I happily welcoming the New Year 2018. I was working two jobs as a driver and an insurance representative. She was a home health care provider at the time, but unfortunately her last patient passed. This put her out of a job, and we live alone so I had to figure out how to make ends meet while she got back on her feet. She has since found another job, but just yesterday I got laid off from one of my two jobs. Even with each of us working a full-time job, we can barely cover rent, utilities, groceries, and bills. We've even had to ask for a payment extension on our car so we wouldn't suffer a repo. I'm already applying for other jobs, however, a toothache took me to the dentist's office and then came some more bad news. My x-ray shows that I'm missing some jaw bone (dentist says probably due to some trauma). I need to have 3 teeth extracted, scar tissue removed, fill in the area with a regenerating substance to make up for the missing bone, and then see if my teeth can possibly be placed back in. If they can't, then I'm looking at implants. The pain is unbearable and my insurance unfortunately won't cover such procedure because it's considered outside of "preventative or basic care". We need $2,000 as a down payment which is about 60% of the total cost of the procedure. I can figure out how to cover the rest later, but we need at least that down payment to have the procedure done. Please, anything could help.
