I am disabled and live in Missouri. I need the rest of my teeth pulled and dentures or implants or something. My disability check doesn't stretch far enough for me to get my teeth fixed. It has been so bad at 1 time I was hospitlized because my mouth wouldn't open because I had a bad tooth.
I am look ing for some kind of way to get a grant or something to get my teeth fixed.Diabetes are eating up my teeth. only have medi-cal and it doesnt cover what i need done. if any one knows of someone who can help please let me know. i cant even smile i am so embarassed need help. thanks
My husband is in need of extensive dental care. We manage an RV park and it does not provide medical/dental insurance. Our income does not support at this point the dentures he now needs. :( I see him in pain all the time and it breaks my heart. Does anyone have any suggestions on what we can do to get assistance with getting this work done for him??
kinda having same prob as twodogs. prob got half removed already, but most others are broke and decaying, i get pains on and off alot too. so im also looking for somone that doing extraction or inplants that have financial assistance or somthing. near waynesboro Virginia. hate trying to hide my smile.
I am in desperate need of a lot of dental work. Over half of my teeth are broken with nerves exposed. I'm in a lot of pain most of the time. I was told that my only viable solution now is dentures but there is no way I can afford them and I don't know what to do. I'm getting a little worried and panicky right now because I hurt so bad all of the time. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.
I really feel for you friend - i have SS but of course, no dental coverage. Healthy teeth are just as important to the rest of your body as any other organ but yet SS don't believe that. Nor do health ins. providers. My grandson, age 28, needs extensive dental work and has ins. that pays 80% after a yr deductible and up to a max. of $1,000 per year. Right now, his dentist estimates to get his teeth back in good shape will cost around $5,000 total due to the extensive work to be done. Some dentist do not even file ins. claims anymore, they require one to pay up front and then get re-imbursed. ha Nor, are there any dentist that will let you make payments that I know of IF you qualify.This is really a bad situation to say the least. Good luck on your search. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and if i find any resources send me your email and I will be glad to share info with you.
I live in Portland, OR. I do have an inexpensive nightguard, but it often causes me pain. That is just one more thing I have to find a way to pay for. I know implants are the most expensive option, but they are the closest thing to fully functioning teeth from what my worrisome research has turned up. I worry about having my lateral incisors ground down to support a bridge (I don't want to destroy perfectly healthy teeth). But I might have to go that route. I appreciate your help. I hope your dental work turns out well.
It would be helpful to know your closest city/state to provide you info on dental..I also have the same condition as you and have 4 fractured teeth from grinding. My work is costing over 4,000 but I do have a dental plan that covers all of it except 290 dollars. Implants are your most expensive option, I lost 2 teeth already towards the back of my mouth and opted to leave the spaces since they cant be seen. Now I am dealing with the other 4 teeth..so maybe you can concentrate on your front teeth and get an inexpensive mouth guard so you dont destroy any others. Also, check dental schools near you, they will do the work under supervision for a fraction of the cost.
Can anyone help me find assistance to pay for dental work? I just recently found out that I grind/clench and I have fractured multiple teeth, including several molars and my top 2 central incisors (top front teeth). I'm not worried about losing my smile so much as losing the ability to talk the same way and being able to eat. My employer provided dental insurance covers almost nothing restorative and nothing at all for what is considered "cosmetic". I'll find out in a few days if I can save any of these teeth and have crowns placed, but I might need to get a bridge or implants for my front teeth. I'd much rather get implants instead of destroying more teeth for a bridge, but I can't afford it. I can't afford any of it. Please help... I'm so worried and I am struggling to fight the tears. =(
I am looking for dental assistance asap in the State of Colorado and in the Portland Oregon areas for my daughter who is in college. The amount of work needing to be done is approx 3,000 or so. What do you offer in regards to assistance in helping us out with this financial hardship?
