So i had all my teeth removed 10 years ago due to alot of pain and just bad teeth that runs in my family i guess, so i paid to get them all pulled bc i thought i didnt care what ppl thought of me but now i just hide in my house my fiancee left me after 12 years, i have no friends no significant other and i feel like i get looked over for good jobs bc of my appearance. Im just so lost i dont know how to fix this im only 35 i dont want to live like this forever
 
@adam0718 Have you thought about getting dentures? My mother had full dentures by the time she was 40.
 
Ya im just trying to save the money for it, im a single dad so saving is not easy
 
@adam0718 I completely understand. I'm in not-so-great financial straits myself, and I just dropped more than $400 at the dentist this week and over $1300 last year - and that's just the dentist. It seems like it never ends. I hope you can get them eventually.
 
There are also lines of credit you could look into, at least in the US there are. I know nobody wants to go into debt (me either!) but for something like getting dentures it is reasonable to consider.
 
@HeatherWasHere thank u ive been trying, i just need to get tik tok famous lol jk
