I Can't Afford to Take Care of an Abscessed Tooth. I'm in a Lot of Pain & Need Help Urgently Please!

My Story:

I am an autistic 30-year-old, and I live with my twin sister and my elderly grandma. My sister and I are our grandma's caregivers. Spending time together is really important to us, and we love to watch movies, TV shows, and the news together, as well as dine and garden together. My sister is an avid writer and hopes to publish one of her stories someday.

As for myself, I've always worked, but right now, I am currently between jobs and have two interviews lined up that I hope will pan out. In the meantime, the only income that we have right now is through my grandmother's benefits that she gets from the government. Without any other income, we've been living from paycheck to paycheck, and we don't have a savings to fall back on in case of emergency. When I started to feel some pain in my tooth, I feared for the worse, and after going to the dentist, it turns out I have an abscess that will require a root canal to repair. The procedure is relatively expensive, and it's well outside of what we can afford, but I have to get the root canal done before the abscess gets any worse. I'm in desperate need of assistance with affording this dental procedure, so I'm very humbly asking for help with covering the cost of the root canal.

I've tried to find the most affordable way to get this procedure done, but there's nothing that we can afford. I've spoken to our insurance, and they won't cover the cost of the root canal. I also tried applying to two different dental clinics, but they never got back to me, and I also looked to see if there were dental schools in the area that might be a cheaper alternative but there aren't any nearby. To be honest, I'm in a good deal of pain, and it's urgent that I get this procedure done as quickly as possible, so having this assistance would be a huge relief, both emotionally and physically speaking. After the dental surgery, I will be able to refocus my efforts on finding a job, and once I'm able to do that, I can give my family some much-needed stability. I want to thank everyone who helps me with this dental surgery for showing me and my family compassion and kindness. We will never forget it.
