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.
