Frank's denture deposit

My name is Frank. I am 32 years old and I live in South Africa. For years I have been hesitant to break out in an ear-to-ear grin despite my vibrant personality that lends itself to smiles and laughter.
As a younger person, I did all I could to look after my teeth. Despite this effort, they continued to get worse. When your teeth are soft enough to just break at anything - even the softest of foods - then you know you are only fighting a losing battle.
Naturally, I am not looking for exotic treatments, such as implants, crowns, veneers etc. My solution will be simple - extraction and dentures.
Having consulted a dentist, it would seem the cheapest to extract my remaining 17 teeth (which are all exposed to the root). The dentures themselves will apparently cost a minimum of R 4000. Add to this the cost of just having someone look into my mouth, plus sedation etc, and we are looking at something in the region of R7000!
I have been looking for a job for over 3 years now and believe that the main contributor is my teeth, after all, it's something that people notice first.
The funds raised will go towards:
- Extraction of the remaining 17 Teeth
- Any in-hospital costs
- Denture mould
- Denture cleaning material
- Medication for after the procedure
I am relying on generosity in order to have a mouth that will look decent. Nothing extravagant - just dentures and the chance to smile freely without anyone judging me based on my teeth.
