I just found out that I need 8 root canals plus some periodontial treatment. I am so depressed because i live on a fixed income and as a single mom I just don't have any money. I can barely pay my bills. I have beautiful teeth and I want to keep them. I have an infection going on in my mouth and I am in pain. I wrote to Oprah Winfrey and I guess she can't even help me. I even made a wish on the site"Wish Upon a Hero', but i am not dying or I don't have aids so I don't have a her. The clinics here just pull teeth and won't do anything else. I really need a hero. I have worked hard to be where I am today. I moved my 10 year old son from the hood in Florida to live in a nice little mountain town last year. It took everything I had to make this happen. Now I find out that my teeth need this work and I am devastated! Where do I go? Who can I turn to? I even tried pleading with local dentists to see if they would do pro bono work. No one wants to help! I would even make payments if I could find someone who would work with me. Is there any hope for someone like me?
