Like none?
If you have insurance, they should be able to cover something. If you don't, there is care credit (credit ), there are also places that work with your income... with not having anything for so long, I'm assuming you've lost a lot of bone. You may need implant retained denture, so the denture stays in place?
Have you looked up options in your area? Have you called around to set up consults?

Hi Roy. Well I am 51, I had all my teeth pulled out, my momma has had dentures since she was 18, so I have learned quite a bit and through my own nightmares. First may I suggest, when u get them don't go for the cheapest. I am having to get set #3 because I didn't have 2000 dollars. Nor good credit. They have some,not sure what they are called, all places call them different, but you start with a temporary pair, then after so long, u get a permanent pair. I'm telling ya, wish I wouldn't have been so cheap now, LOL. Probably won't need all that other dentist crap. Just keep them in ,they say take them out at night,pfshh, only to clean them. The longer you wear them, the faster you will get use to them. And your gums and bone structure will adapt. Good luck and shop for pricing and look up reviews . Hope it helps.

 That's  terrible  and hard to understand.  In New York  Medicaid covers all kinds of dental  work
Most of Medicaid is funded by the Federal Government but the state  administers  the program
