USMC Veteran needs teeth

I think I'm fairly decent looking man.  But when I  talk to people they  seem to forget about the conversation and focus on my mouth and few teeth.  They seem to frown as if to say what happened to his  teeth.  It seems that they don't listen the same.  When I first started losing my  teeth they seem to drop out one at a time.  And I would  almost  swallow  them  sometimes.  When  one  fell out  the one next to it would follow.  Some of the back teeth were cavities  . Not a  few of whole  teeth would fall out.  Not  only   is it shameful.  But  my food doesn't digest properly because I can't chew it up.  As a  young man my  smile was my best characteristic . But when I lost my teeth my  it was like a dark cloud  came over me.  And  I lost a  lot of my confidence and self esteem.   Dental surgery is  very expensive.  I  am on disability and can't afford the cost. My Medicare don't cover dental.  I would have sent a picture of my mouth but didn't because I was too ashamed.  But  I was reluctant to do this.  But I'm 60 now and not getting younger.  I  couldn't think of anything else to do. . Thanks for  reading my  story.
