Q.

Tande

Ek het nog net my voortande oor (vier bo en vier onder) en sukkel verskriklik om te eet omdat ek nie my vleis kan kou nie. Die probleem is ek het nie geld vir kunstande nie. Is daar dalk iewers ''n plek in die land waar hulle ''n mens gratis as staatspasient kan help?

Baie dankie.

I''ll try this in English. I have only 4 upper en 4 lower teeth left en struggle to chew food like meat. But I don''t have money to get me dentures. Now I want to know if there is any place where I can get it free?

There are state dental clinics in all areas.
Contact your local town clinic to enquire where the dental facilities are.
There are also extensive facilities at Johannesburg and Pretoria Hospitals

I know there are state dental clinics and they are worth absolutely nothing. It''s because of them that all my molars are gone. Everytime I go, they just pull it out. I am looking for an institution where they help poor people to get dentures. So, please if you want to help me, give me an address or tel number I can call. To tell me about state clinics is of no help at all.
