Unhappy I Need Help Getting Dental Work Done

Here I am, a mom of 3 beautiful little girls, all with perfect smiles bright as can be, and I can't even get MYSELF the proper dental care. I have a problem with my bones that cause me to have low calcium, which in turn, makes my teeth brittle. It takes nothing at all to make my teeth break. I remember when I was little, I always had these white spots on my teeth. I was embarassed by them. I asked my then dentist what it was and he told me that it was decalcification. He also told me that later on in life, I'd more likely than not, have a problem with breakage. Well, he was most certainly right. I have teeth that are so broken down in the back, you'd have to cut the gum to remove them; I have teeth that are broken in other spots so badly, I can't even bite down on them, because of more chipping off and leaving nerves exposed. It literally looks like I never took care of my teeth at all, which I always have because my Grandma always instilled that in me from a very young age. It's a habit I have that I will never break. I mean, even my front teeth have broken away at the gum line now. I'm only 25 and I'm ashamed to even smile at my kids or my husband. My hubby can't afford the prices they want for insurance for either of us. Luckily, the kids are covered by the state. For us, we aren't. I honestly would like to just get my teeth pulled and get dentures. But I feel like that will never happen til I win the lottery or something. I want to be able to smile for my family. My husband always wants me to smile and take pictures, but I refuse to because of my smile. All the pics we have are just of him and the kids. Very few of me for my children to have after I'm gone. Is there anyone out there that could help me? I have no money to go to a dentist; not even for a co-pay. I know I sound pathetic, but the pain I go through is unbarable at times. It makes me physically ill, and that's no joke. Thank you for taking the time to read my wish, and I hope you all have a wonderful New Year.

Thank you, singledad; I hope I do too. I know it's a stretch, to think that anyone would be willing and/or able to help me with something like this. But I have to try. That's all I can do.
