He smashed my jaw until my teeth cracked out - please help me rebuild my mouth

He smashed my head into the floor and clamped his hands on my jaw until 9 of my teeth cracked out. I’d suffered years of his daily domestic abuse, but this pain was by far the most excruciating.
My ex locked me in the house for a week after, so I was not able to get immediate medical attention. By then I had got blood poisoning via my gyms and broken teeth. I was rushed to the dental hospital in Melbourne and they removed 9 top teeth and made follow up appointments for me to receive dentures.
Unfortunately I done what most women do in a domestic violence relationship like that and went back to the ex (haveing no family around me or friends, no where to live as that was my home, no car no money, being emotionally unstable). He trapped me in the house. I couldn’t escape - I missed three crucial appointments, so long story short 3 years later I am no longer eligible for any dental assistance from the government.
I’m desperate. I’m only 21 and don’t have the $6,000 minimum to visit a private dentist, and I’m not a child so Medicare can’t fund this. I am petitioning for the Health Minister to be compassionate and grant me access to urgent dental care.
I would be forever grateful if you could help.
i also have a "go fund me" that I set up 15 days ago if any one is willing to donate towards private dental fees it would be much appreciated, just $5.00 can make all the difference. Xox
