Single Father in Need of Dental Work

Blake is a loving, single father of an 18 month old little girl. After getting his braces removed at age 19, he realized that there were holes bored into his teeth where the brackets were. There was bacteria caught underneath the braces when they were put in, causing them to rot underneath the braces.

Now, at age 25, his teeth have continued to decay to the extent you see in the pictures posted below. The enamel all wore down due to the decay that the braces had caused. Now, Blake deals with severe, debilitating pain from the exposed and slowly decaying nerves in his teeth and gums. This is what is left of his mouth now.  The severe pain has caused him to be unable to eat most foods or even drink, causing significant weight loss as well.

Blake needs to get in to a dentist to have the remains of his teeth pulled, as well as be fitted for dentures so that he can once again be able to live the normal life that he deserves, not embarrassed to show his smile in front of his little girl. He is an aspiring university student, and is currently out of work as well as insurance due to the situation in the world at the moment, with the pandemic causing job loss across the states.

The cost of $5,000 would include the pulling of his remaining teeth, as well as getting new dentures. If just a thousand people can give only five dollars to help, it would mean the world.
