Hi Everyone. I'm hoping there is someone who can give me some advice or info on any resources for help with the teeth problems occuring after treatment. I'm four years out of treatment & my teeth are a disaster. they started slowly falling apart, and now I'm dealing with many broken teeth,three abcessed teeth and a whole lot of pain. my onc. says this is definately a result of chemo. I know at this point I need them all extracted and need to get dentures. needless to say, health ins.is of no help and I have limited income and no dental cov. Any sugestions on where to look for help with this? I'm to the point that because of my looks I don't smile anymore, and most of the time avoid any social situations at all. 2 of my front teeth have fallen apart, which I have temporarily fixed by molding teeth out of epoxy and gluing in with crazy glue. (both poisons that probobly shouldn't be in my mouth) Any suggestions on where to turn for some financial aid, or even how to find a dentist with enough compassion to work with my limited funds would be greatly appreciated. thanks for listening.
