I have lost several teeth and would like to get dental implants on the NHS. Any advice?

Q.
I am a 44 yr old woman; as a result of a brain aneurysm, I had a stroke, which further resulted in a seizure and I lost my front teeth when I hit the ground face first and fractured the bone that holds yr front teeth. I am extremely self-conscious of having a partial denture and have had many problems with it. I understand under some circumstances, its possible to qualify for dental implants on the NHS. I have lost 10 teeth from my upper jaw so have no chance of ever being able to afford the costs privately. It is really affecting my confidence and getting me down. Any advice?
A.
There is an ‘exceptional circumstances’ fund that some PCT’s offer for patients who would really benefit from dental implants, but as you can imagine money is tight and most people aren’t accepted. The first step is to contact your local PCT and build a case along with your implant dentist to try to get funding for the implants

Many thanks for your extremely helpful advice Andrew. I shall certainly look into that possibility. A little hope is better than none, after all. Kind regards and thanks once again.
