Unhappy Help

I am 28 years old and I am in desperate need of a dental attention... I have only been to the dentist a hand full of times in my life and now its to late... I went about 6 months ago to get started on what I anticipate to be a long hall of dentist appointments and it only scared me a lot... I was told then that i needed two root canals if I was going to TRY and save 2 bad teeth among MANY teeth.. since then.. the 2 bad teeth have now cracked in half and I am in complete agony with each day that passes.... I am so embarassed at this point... aside from needing major dental work.. I should of had braces over a decade ago which only adds to my embarassment ,pain and heart ache.... I really loose sleep every night and am desperate for some medical attention..... At this point I am convinced that my mouth is one big infection and I am dying a slow death... I feel like death everyday and I know that I am only hurting myself by not taking care of it.. unfortunately i have no dental insurance.. and I also have a heart murmur which results in special novicaine.. I am so scared that I am going to cause permenant health problems because of my neglectgence to my mouth.... Is there anyone out there that does Charity work for people that are to embarassed and have neglected themselves..... I dont know what to do I am scared....

Re: Help

well,i know its hard because your scared of dentists,but you must seek a good dentist ,and see what needs to be done and get the most important ,teeth sorted out to get you out of pain
have what you can afford to have done and then save for the next bit of treatment

i know a lot about pain of the teeth ive been suffering on and off for years and paid lots of money trying to sort out my teeth
but you could save a lot by finding a decent dentist who will do a good job on you and in the end it be worth it

good luck
