Hi I am not sure about posting here as I am very scared of being judged and my mental health is not good as I said I have very advanced periodontal disease I have issues since 2015 but had a very bad experience with the dentist which did not help my fear of them one bit so 2 years later in 2015 I had gum issues I had just started working and long story short with me and my mum being in tons of debt I could not pay for treatment and I could not get help with payments

so I saved up got the cash which is hard when you earn £300 a month and the majority goes on debt food rent at the end of 2017 and made the appointment for early 2018 problem is my mum figured it would be a good idea to steel the cash to pay off a debt she had knowing she could never pay it back I started saving again then I was just getting there when the pandemic hit so for 2020 I was stuck and the most of the money was used on trying to live and a funeral for a relative who passed during covid anyway I sit here now having had Periodontal disease untreated since 2015 teeth in very bad condition and during the pandemic I noted my face has become misshaped on one side I will be able to get to a dentist I have in February so I started reading and found that I very much might not be able to have dentures because there might not be much left of my jawbone or what is left is to weak

no teeth have feel out so that has given me some hope but I have most other symptoms including thinned out lips especially on top

is there any hope what has me worried is if I cannot have dentures I feel my life is over no one is going to hire a 45 year old man with no teeth and frankly I would become housebound or with my mental health issues I am worried about getting to a place where I just want to end things

I can attach a picture of my gums but not sure as I said if I will get judged or attacked rather than get advice and help

I will have the cash in February for sure but I hit a snag on it tonight I use sensodyne toothpaste and corsodyl mouthwash which the toothpaste is running out

My main thing is because it’s in such bad condition with my face looking the way it does feeling that I would no be able to have dentures I know there are 2 kinds and 3 types of implants I just don’t feel I can live with having no teeth and not having dentures it’s not like I have the cash where I could just stay at home and never leave
