Hello Mr moore, back in 2009 when i fell pregnant i had a tooth fall out, so i took a trip to the dentist and was told nothing could be done till after the birth my child, however the dentist was new and alittle rough in handling me, and i was slightly put off, therefore i didnt return for some months, however after yet another tooth fell out i went back, because you see both teeth were baby teeth so there was nothing there to replace them. so i was offered dentures but im only young, i asked for the alternative which i was told are implants but it would cost me £3000 in total for both. But i can’t afford that, i’m a full time student with a small child. is there no way of getting them done for free on nhs or at least cheaper. this is really affecting me now as i have two gaps on either side of my mouth. i wasnt warned that this could happen to me, as id attended the same dental practice for years, they even fitted me with a strange brace when i was 15yrs old, that i was suppose to tighten every week with this little metal key, however the plastic bridge was so thick and sat on my tongue when fitted in my mouth i would gag everytime i tried to talk therefore couldnt wear it. i was told they would fit me with another one and never did. They were meant to close the gaps. I just dont know what to do.. help.
