I am 38 years old. I do not have a job due to back problems and a mental illness. Two years ago my teeth and gums started going downhill fast and afraid if I dont do something fast that I'm going to lose all my teeth. I have gone many sleepless nights due to the pain. I try eating on one side of my mouth but is getting to painfull to eat period. I still live with parents because of disabilty and they cant afford to take me to the dentist. I feel stuck and dont know what else to do. Im not sure what it cost at the dentist, but as bad as my mouth is I figure its probaly going to be pretty expensive.
