Okay I just want everybody to know I'm well aware no one has money but if you can get your hands on some of these things it will improve on some problems.
ok if you know Dental problems are starting to cause pain.
Use 3pills of 200mg over the counter ibuprofen tablets every 4 hours for dental pain. Its the best pill of Dentist choice
Get some Hydrogen Peroxide, 
after brushing swish 1/4 cup in your mouth spit hold for a minute and spit and rinse.
To me this helps enormously with pain and inflammation and also whitens teeth.Do this everyday until pain is gone

If you can pick your tooth paste sensodine tooth paste pink and white box is very good for nerve pain in the mouth and helps after time decrease nerve pain from dental decay .

Listerine is the best mouth wash you can get for dental problems don't waste money on anything else without a bacterial agent in it for gingivitis.

Garlic pills and vitamin C help tremendously taken on a daily basis 2 capsules twice a day can keep

cavity or bacterial problems from occurring get these in a vitamin store or grocery or drug store in the herbal remedies section. You can purchase vitamin C at your Dollar tree store cheaply use a dose of 2,000 milligrams on the start of use

they say that a herbal method of teeth pulling will either get rid of dental problems or help them done on a daily basis.
You take tablespoon of olive oil or canola oil or cocoanut oil swish back and forth between teeth for 10- 15 minutes a day. Then spit out and brush the teeth with toothpaste. The drawback is some people can't tolerate oil in the mouth so it's very hard to do.

If you have pain make a wet compress on gauze, and place in mouth of these spices or herbs, to reduce pain, cinnamon , cloves, garlic,canine pepper or charcoal which I find in tablets or crush from charcoal pills. It's black it does stain but works.
Cider vinegar with charcoal or just vinegar sometimes works I put it in the fridge in a jar with several gauze pads which i switch through out the day on the painful area it helps with bacteria

They say fresh Garlic can stop pain but too much in the mouth at once seems to burn my gums so a small crushed amount on the tooth will help or add it too the cider vinegar compress let it ferment in the jar with the vinegar.

They say aspirin helps sitting right in the cavity for pain.

Doctors always say rinse with teaspoon salt and 1/4 cupwater but after a few days this makes my mouth raw. I rather use the hydrogen Peroxide method.

Absolutely don't smoke. Every person i know with bad gums smoked or chewed tobacco at least once in there life. It is a killer of smiles in every sense

If you are starting to get Gum disease or Dental Decay and can't afford work now or in the future and want to save those teeth you have left, take whatever money you can get your hands on and invest in the water pick. It brought my dental disease to a halt when I had no choice but to look else-wear for help when the funds started drying up after numerous root canals which I never could afford which they said I had to have which after 10 years those teeth decayed and had to be pulled anyway. I had no idea that root canals don't last forever and neither did my bank account from them.They still can get deep decay break ect. and need constant renewal. Someone told me there's research being done that root canals cause cancer because of the metals used in them and people are having them removed now after years of having them and are actually recovering from cancer. From now on I just get my teeth pulled and yes one day have dentures but I will be Cancer free and not so broke as some dental treatments leave you. So the water pick is my best suggestion but you have to use it with every brushing to get between teeth and even though I'm not the biggest flosser the dentist is not lying about how much that helps keep you on the right track.

dental help: I'm in need of financially assistance for dental work. I had dentures made (paid cash) ,

I'm in need of financially assistance for dental work. I had dentures made (paid cash) , they don't fit right. Could not keep in mouth. My sister said go to her dentist, I did. They will not work either. The dentists will not refund any money. They have been turned into dental board.Now its been about 2 years into this and I have lost 6 pant sizes , I'm so skinny I'm embarrassed to go anywhere. I have done all medical testing to see if it could possibly be a medical problem. I have got a third opinion on my teeth, but it is going to cost $3300. I feel like I'm dying inside from not being able to eat for so long. If there is anyone who can give me a helping hand, I would be so grateful.

Hi. I need immediate dental help, before I loose my front teeth. I work as a senior caregiver, and I don't have funds for dental help. Since I have pain, I need help as soon as possible.

I am in need of dentures, almost all of my teeth have broken off and nothing but the roots are there. It is very hard to eat and they are starting to hurt. My husband left me and i know its because i look so much older without my teeth kind of like a potato when it starts to dry out. After reading other peoples problems I would rather see them get the help. I can live without my teeth for awhile longer. Thank You and God Bless.

Free Dental Work, dentures: My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a

My father's teeth are rotting away due to chemotherapy that he received for a tumor that he had in his neck over a decade ago. He has zero insurance and my family's AGI is in the low $20,000 range. Primarily due to my father being unemployed and my mother being on permanent disability. Although he has been tirelessly been looking for work, he has been turned downed countless times due to his teeth. I believe that all of this has also caused him to become very depressed about his situation.

We live in Shiawassee County, Michigan, and I just need to know what my options are. I have about $1,000 saved so far, but I know that would not cover all of the required dental work and this is something that needs to be taken care of soon.

If I can find a solution that could fix my father's teeth, it would be a miracle for my entire family.

Thank you.

I have two broken teeth and I need someone to help me pay my bills for my upcoming dental surgery.... Are there any philanthropists out here that are willing to help me to finance the funds? I am unemployed and do not know any resources out here and what programs are available, if anyone knows of any non-profits/organizations then let me know, please, I am desperate, and fed up with living life like this in constant pain and stress about my dental care surgery and this is just a huge ordeal, it's even starting to weigh on every aspect of my life.... I have been struggling with this for almost ten years now.... HELP, IT IS REALLY AN EMERGENCY.... BECAUSE MY SURGERY IS AT THE END OF THIS MONTH IN MARCH 2014.... I have two broken teeth on the right side of my mouth, and the one on top is impacted and infected, with green and yellow bubble of pus, and the teeth are so broken, THAT fragments of the top tooth is broken up and stuck up into my gum, and sticking out and everything.... The bottom tooth has the bone in the guns receding and eroding away.... my jaw is slowly receding.... Please feel free to contact me, at anytime, and I am always available to discuss help, it is never too late, I am always up, and we can talk more about how you plan to assist me with finances.... I will give you more details on my particular dental situation.... Any donations would definitely be appreciated very much, as this situation is impacting my life, in quite a very negative way.... I am very friendly and open to any kind of help that one can give me.... I have already prepared my research of a decent place and the amount is minimal....

I have cerebral palsy which affects 1 side only and how I walk. Because of this disability I have fallen often. About 8 years ago I fell and hit right on my mouth. Because of that fall I damaged the bone on my lower jaw. The bone around a front tooth has slowly deteriorated to the point that to repair it the dentist with have to pull the tooth, build up the bone, and then replace the tooth with a porcelain crown--I have access to about $1300. to get started but will need another $2050 for full payment. I'm on SSI and my income is only $721.00/month. Medicaid will pay for the extraction of the tooth and I'm responsible for the rest. Any financial assistance would be appreciated. If you know of a church or organization that can assist that referral would also be appreciated.

Hello...

My name is Sheri, I'm 39, mother of 3 beautiful boys.

I posted this below a a couple of years ago with no luck, I'm to the point where I'm desperate!

.........................................................
About 6 years ago I got sick with a major infection in my mouth... Since then all my teeth are rotting out and I'm in constant pain. For the last 2 months I haven't been able to eat solid foods without being in so much pain its unbearable. My husband does not have health or dental insurance since he started his own business and since my teeth are so bad, nobody will hire me for a job. They assume I am a drug addict, and they treat me like an outcast. It's to the point where my health is getting very bad because of the contant infection in my teeth. The worst part of it is I've tried to do something about my situation, but it's hard when I cant get a job to get my teeth fixed... My husbands business is new, so we are broke. We hardly have enough money to pay for our bills, let alone a few thousand dollars for dental care. I can't find a dentist who will do payments. They all want the money before you walk out the door. Which unfortunatly we are unable to do.

For the past 3 years I hardly leave the house. It's so bad that I cry myself to sleep everynight, because of the pain and because of the humiliation. I haven't smiled in years... and it's effecting my children. They never really have seen me happy.

I'm asking for help. Which is something I never thought I'd have to do. If I don't get my teeth fixed soon, it will be harmful to my health. I'm willing to pay back what is given to me, if they want to take monthly payments.
...................................................................................................


I'm at my wits end, I really don't have anywhere to turn to at this point. My extended family has no money to spare, we're all broke it seems. My teeth are getting much worse..I have a swollen jaw as we speak. My weight is down to 109lbs (from 140) because I can't eat. I feel like I'm losing a battle with my health and my life. We try and try to save money, but it seems like as soon as we have almost enough to do something... car breaks down, unexpected bills, something always seems to take it all away.

If someone helps our family I would be so grateful. Like I stated above I would pay back any money that is loaned to us, written contract if needed.

Thanks so very much.

dental help: I don't believe I'm special. I don't believe I'm the only person who has struggled

I don't believe I'm special. I don't believe I'm the only person who has struggled hard the last couple of years.
I've had depression since 18 years of age, I'm 57 now (but so what?), I'm unemployed ( like a million other guys). I have untreated hepatitis C (that's what you get!) Drops I use for recurrent eye infections have given me catarachs (ahh, they got lasers for that!) So, I'm blue, broke, and blind (getting there, anyway). I'm sick a lot, too.
Still, I've always been able to disguise myself as guy who's got it together - I cleaned up well. I was at least presentable. That's no longer true because my teeth hurt all the time and they look horrible! I look and can't believe it's me.

Please tell me something that will help me. I can hide all those other things but now I must hide my mouth. I'm not vain (my brother was always "the handsome one").
It's strange but this feels like the last straw, like all of me is decaying. I can't explain it better than that. I've reached my limit. My 15 year old daughter is ashamed of my appearence - me too.

I wrote about myself thinking I was writing to someone, a team, a board, anyone that could hear my story and may try to imagine walking anywhere in my shoes for a little bit and maybe willing to talk more if needed or get some guidance on who can help me. Thank you for taking your time to learn more about me.

Hello I just was doing some looking on the web for help for husband who is in a lot of dental pain. We are both currently unemployed, no not have insurance and don't qualify through DSHS because we bring in $704 a month in unemployment benefits for the next 4 months or so, but I am wondering if anyone on here knows of a DDS that can help in WA state. He would be happy to do maintenance work in exchange, he used to own his own painting co. he can paint really good. I pray to the Lord everyday for help for him he is a lot of pain he needs a lot of work, his parents abandon him when he was only 13 years old and he never had anyone show him proper dental care, or got it anyway. I asked DSHS for help and they didn't even know where we could find help. So I am desperate he's about to loose his front tooth from a bad cavity and we are worried that he wont find a good job with missing teeth. He has been looking for work for last 2 years finding it sporadically but his credit is so bad from before we met he gets turned down 3 times a week due to credit only. I am grateful for even a prayer for us.
