I havent been to the dentist for about 3 years. I also do

Customer Question

I haven't been to the dentist for about 3 years. I also do not brush my teeth very regularly. Now a lot of my teeth are rotting and falling apart. I have some teeth where half of the tooth has rotten away and left the nerve exposed so making it very painful. I have a few teeth where they have rotten bits have just fallen away. And my front tooth is so rotten that It has fallen out but a little bit of the tooth has stayed in and I have been using toofy pegs to stick it back in. It is all my fault that this has happened but because I have let it get so bad I am afraid and embarrassed to go to a dentist. What should I do? And is there a payment plan I could do to fix it?
