Clearly you need good dental care
now, and that is something that is not frequently available in any large measure unless the cost of treatment is paid for.
Temporary assistance for needy families (tanf) provides temporary cash and medical help for families in need. Some families participate in the workfirst program. The workfirst program helps participants find and keep jobs. The department of social and health services (dshs), washington state, may be able to help also, but you have to contact them and state your case.
Now to address your question. You are making life more difficult for yourself by thinking that being put to sleep
to have dental care is going to solve your problems. It isnâ€™t! when a patient is sedated the most critical aspect of treatment is keeping the patient alive, not the quality of care, and while it is possible to for both to be addressed, my experience over the last thirty six years is that frequently less than the finest care is achieved under these circumstances. In short you are doing yourself a disservice but making intravenous sedation a part of your means of attaining treatment. The truth is that we have treated many very difficult situations for extremely fearful patients, and we have done so successfully without using I.V.
There are some very fine dentists in seattle, one that comes to mind is my colleague dr george goll. I suggest that you contact one of them and explain your situation and ask for their help. Then make a start and get your dental treatment going. In the mean time brush and floss every day and use a mouth rinse if you can to slow down any gum disease
