Check with your local health department to see if the local dentists do any low- or no-cost work. In my area, the local dentists have gotten together and each of them donates a certain amount of hours per week or month to see patients at the local community college at very reduced rates.

Ouch - I feel really sorry for you. I had this problem, and found that dental colleges need patients for senior students to work on under professorial supervision ... usually free, or cost of materials.

I have to confess I chickened out of that one too, and had full dentures made ... I got rid of twenty-five years of pain and fear in one glorious fifteen-minute pulling session.

Another choice is to have the work done, but to have it done under hypnosis ... this is spreading, and it DOES work safely, if you can find someone skilled ... start with the dental college again.

Good luck, whichever you choose.

My answer got deleted but it was a good answer. I know someone who went to Mexico for root canal because he couldn't afford it in the USA and it was much cheaper in Mexico. They don't like me sometimes.
