I Need an Implant for One of My Teeth, but I Can't Afford it! Please Help Us!

My Story:

I'm married to my wonderful and hardworking husband, and together, we have three children, one of whom still lives at home with us. In addition to our children, we have been blessed with five wonderful grandchildren who we love to spend time with whenever we can. Until recently, both my husband and I were working full-time; however, due to some health issues I've been dealing with, only my husband is working full-time. As a result, we're struggling financially, and while I wish there was more that I could do to help, I'm unable to work and am currently having to seek disability assistance.

Over the past few years, I've been experiencing a lot of difficulties with my teeth. Four years ago, I had some work done on a tooth that was bothering me. Now, years later, it's starting to give me problems again. I went to my dentist, and they told me that the tooth needs to be extracted and replaced with a bone graft. We were able to afford the cost of having it extracted, but we cannot afford to have the implant put in. Unfortunately, without me being able to work full-time, we don't have the income that we need to complete the rest of the oral surgery that I need, so I'm very humbly seeking assistance with the remaining cost of my surgery.

The tooth that needs to be replaced is extremely important to my overall dental health, but my dentist also informed me that without it, I won't be able to chew. With that said, it's vital that I have this surgery done, so I would be deeply appreciative of any support that I receive with getting this surgery done. On behalf of my whole family, thank you to everyone who lends us a hand with the cost of this dental surgery. Truly, this support would have a longstanding impact on our lives and on my health.
