Today June 22, 2021, is my sister's birthday, she has been suffering from frequent toothaches over the last year or so, the majority of her teeth from the upper part is messed up because growing up, our parents although they never failed to put food on our table they barely had enough money to take us to the dentist, and I kinda wanna blame them for this but I understand that they had to focus on our youngest sibling because he has autism and needs costly therapies. My sister has been able to save money through the game she was playing(She's been selling in-game items online to save money) and been able to get checked up, get some of the molars extracted, and get some fillings but 7 more teeth need to be extracted including 4 front ones, the dentist said that it was years too late to save the front teeth and it can't be fixed with fillings anymore and it needs to be replaced with either dental implants (which is a lot more expensive and we cannot afford that) or Dentures.
Over the last few days including today, her birthday and she was not able to enjoy her day because she was having severe tooth aches so we're planning to get the teeth extracted but then we won't have enough money for the dentures
The dentist said that it's gonna be a little less than $350 ($200 is the cheapest) for the extraction plus dentures for her 4 front teeth(not including molars). That's the only price the dentist given since we didn't ask for the cost for the molars' dentures since we don't have the money for it yet, the dentist also suggested dental bridges but we didn't ask what the price was since we think it's gonna be a lot more expensive. Estimating from that price for the 4 teeth I think it's about $600-$700 for the 7 teeth, we're also looking at this specific dentist Dr Bucad, we and inquired and they said that the cheapest denture is 25k pesos or $500 USD not including the extraction.
She loves to sing and I think she has an amazing voice, here are the samples if you wanna hear her( Blessed , Last Christmas). We've been wanting to create a youtube channel lately to cover songs but she can't sing with confidence in front of the camera because of her messed up teeth and I feel bad for her

I know our case is not as bad as other people's problem but I really feel bad for my sister, I'm 22 and an incoming 4th-year college student, and I know after I finish my degree I'll find a job and I'll be able to fund this on my own but I feel like her dental problems are just getting worse and worse and it can't wait for another year.
Any amount will be much appreciated.
Thank you, everyone! Godbless!
