He gives us everything

My husband is such a giving and sweet man. He is the kind of person who would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it.
I have been married to Clyde for almost 8 years and we have two beautiful children ages 4 and 1. Like many families today we live paycheck to paycheck and there isn't usually money for any extras. Clyde is the product of a very dysfunctional broken home and never received any dental care growing up.
Just since I have been married to him he has had at least half a dozen teeth pulled. They would get infected and we could not afford the root canal and crown that he needed so the only option was to pull it.
Here recently our son who had climbed into bed with us had a nightmare and before we could wake him out of his fit the threw his head back right into my husbands mouth knocked off at the gum one of his incisors.
Again we do not have the money to get it fixed properly so he will now have a gaping hole where his tooth is missing right in front.
He still has not complained. And he never thinks about himself. He gives and gives to everyone around him and now I would very much like to be able to give to him. He has been evaluated and no one wants to give him dentures b/c he is only 29. So they have all advised we try and save what is there which would take multiple root canals and crowns. We don't even have the money for one so multiple is most definitely out of the question.
We saw an ad for affordable dental implants and thought he would be the perfect candidate. But as we came to find out dental implants are VERY expensive.
My husband has a beautiful heart and soul. He loves me and his children more fiercely than I have every seen before. It is because of his beautiful heart that I believe he deserves a beautiful smile to go with it.
I have never won anything in my life but I have never wanted to win anything as much as I want this for him.
Please help me make his life a little better by giving him is confidence back.
Thank you so much for reading my story I hope to hear from you soon!
