Hi, due to legion of issues I won't go into I never looked after my teeth and haven't been to the dentist in 20 years and need have a mouth full of teeth which are either missing or rotten. It is really, really affecting my confidence and I deliberately open my mouth as little as possible when talking due to embarrassment. I am incredibly embarrassed about going to the dentist as my teeth are so bad. Also I am quite broke and I really can't afford the major dental work I know I will need. I am not sure what to do and this is making me seriously depressed.
 
Seen you're from the UK. If you apply for a hc2 form you can get help with healthcare costs and hopefully find an nhs dentist taking on
