My Goal to Not Lose All My Teeth

$2,000 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 17 people in 8 months
I knew I was destined to have dental problems when I was a child.  Both of my parents had dental problems.  My grandparents had dental problems.  I knew it was just a matter of time before my teeth fell out.  Unfortunately the inevitable has already begun.

When I was a kid, I would always watch what I ate or chewed for fear that it would lead to dental problems.  I was convinced that if I was careful enough, I could avoid the dental issues that plagued my entire family.  Unfortunately I was wrong.  

Every single time I go to the dentist, it's the same cycle.  I go, get x-rays, see what I need done, see the bill, leave and nothing gets done.  I simply cannot afford the extensive dental work I need.  I've considered going to Costa Rica just to get it done, but even then, with all the work I need, I simply can't afford it with being a single mother.  I honestly don't know what to do anymore.  I've already had 6 teeth pulled and with all the crowns, root canals and fillings I still need, it's only a matter of time before I lose them all.  

I can't smile in pictures (even ones with my son, I simply don't have the self esteem to show my teeth).  I can only eat soft foods because I no longer have teeth in the back of my mouth to chew anything hard like meat.  I cry all the time because of this.  But there's nothing I can do.  I have no idea if I'll ever be able to raise the money I need for all the work I need and when I do, it'll probably be too late anyway.  So I figured I'd start a GoFundMe and see how much help I could get.  

I've been to many different dentists.  The best price I've gotten was $4K and that only includes the actual dental work, nothing cosmetic like veneers or implants.  With all cosmetic work I need done, it'll probably be closer to $6K but I didn't want to ask for that much.   I just don't want to lose all my teeth.  I want to smile in pictures with my son.  I want to be able to eat a hamburger or some chicken without having to wince in pain or mash my feed with a fork first.  Please help me if you can.  I'd be forever grateful.   Thank you for listening.

Hi everyone,
I am incredibly touched by the positive outcome of this campaign. Thanks to all of your love and support, I've become so hopeful and motivated. I had my first root canal started today and extractions scheduled for later this week. Two more root canals after this one is completed. The next step is to find the most affordable route to replace the missing teeth. Any pointers is greatly appreciated. I can't express my gratitude enough. I'll be updating all of you
again soon.
