I have 8+ cavities and no dental insurance with low income

Leila M started this conversation

Hi, I'm a semi recent college graduate with very low income, I am a dog walker for a living :) I am struggling with deferring huge loan payments, and I have a huge amount of credit card debt

I cannot afford to get my cavities filled, and my whole mouth is rotting and only getting worse.  It's been years since I could go to the dentist. I'm wondering if there are any dentists with a good reuptation out there willing to do the necessary procedures at a very low cost or for free.  I'm also curious if anyone knows about dental offices with financial assistance available, or that are privately funded.  Any financial contribution towards getting cavities filled would also work, I just need help soon!  The pain is getting bad, not to mention I'm losing friends over the...bad breath side effects of so many cavities. 

Thank you for any support you can offer me!  Even advice! :)

Hello and I have to go the dentist after the holidays. I hope nothing happens before then. Fingers crossed.

Here is a link for free dental clinics in your city of Chicago.


Wishing you find a free dentist who can help you.

 in response to satisfiualways...   If you need root canals, a natural way to suck the infection out and make your teeth better is putting clay over the area until the teeth naturally fall out (They might even get better)
calcium bentonite (green clay) is especially good. Clay has amazing antibacterial and healing properties, it can litterally suck the infection out of any wound from deep within. I also recommend you look at and try what they call "oil pullins" if you get any extra virgin (unprocessed, cold pressed) oil and slowly swish it around in your mouth everyday, you can recalcify your teeth and fill in cavities as well as helping with many other health problems. You must be sure not to swallow it and spit it out after half an hour. I know this will help if you try it! Good luck

I've also heard about good results from packing your tooth with bentonite clay, it pulls out the infection very well from deep within your root! I encourage you to do more research on it but it certainly wont hurt to try! Good luck! There are always alternatives! :)

I am with AmeriPlanUSA, which is a Health Discount Company.  It is for those who don't have insurance and it sound like you.  I think they can help you.  We have a network of doctors that you can choose from and they work very well with us.  I must stress to you that this Discount is NOT INSURANCE RATHER AN ALTERNATIVE TO INSURANCE

You may go to my website: to find more information out. If you would like to talk to me personally you may reach me at 727-522-0416 to discuss this further.  I would be more than happy to help if I can
