I lost my teeth due to gum disease and can’t afford treatment. What can I do?

Q.
Hello, I wonder if you could offer any advice for me or other people in my situation? I lost my teeth due to a severe gum disease, which was due to both circumstances beyond my control, as well as lack of seeing a dentist. I now have only five teeth left, no uppers and I do wear a upper dentures an a parial which is impossible to deal with under any circumstances. My situation is unusual as I don’t have the funds to afford the appropriate dental that I really need. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you
A.
Hello, thank you for your question. This is very difficult for me to answer without seeing you. However, I would recommend visiting your dentist and seeing if they will refer you to an NHS hospital, where they may be able to carry out the denture work for you. Some NHS hospitals take on difficult/special cases and they may take on your case if they consider it is needed enough.

I hope this helps. Thanks

Asking for the right treatment from your dental experts are really important especially if your dental needs are really severe.
