Disabled Lady Needs Teeth To Eat

My Story:

I live alone and am in chronic pain even with medications. I lost many teeth because of medications for spinal stenosis, spondylitis, and nerve root compression. The medicine makes my mouth. I have been on medications for 25 years. It is too late for surgery.

I need teeth to chew my food and cannot pay this dental bill on own because I am unable to work. It would make a real and long-lasting difference to my self-esteem and depression because of the above issues and I can finally enjoy different types of food instead of eating 'baby food.' At this point I must process food to almost a puree to swallow it. Please help me. Thank you kindly in advance for your consideration.
