My teeth are all rotten

I live with pain, I only eat soft food, I can’t smile.most is that they affecting my studies. I do not know where to start because I don’t have money to see the dentists. they all rotten. Please help me

You dont necessarily need money or that much money to see a dentist .
I dont know your circumstances , but if you are on a low income of benefits , then you will not pay to see an NHS Dentist .
Even if you have to pay something , then it will not be a large sum of money , and can be budgeted for .
Community Dental Services , Dental Hospitals , all provide free care .
Its possible to get a referral to a sedation Clinic if you need extractions , and you can get dentures either free , or at an NHS price .
But sometimes when its so difficult to face up to having treatment , its easy to throw up barriers , which can actually be overcome .
The choice seems now to live with this misery and unhappiness , or take small steps to get the ball rolling .
I suggest you look up www.dentalfearcentral.org , where other patients have given some people who they have found helpful
