Good Morning! I am a 43 year old white male, live with my parents, have my 18 year old son living here also and live in a depressed area of Ohio. I made just under $10,000 last year. 25 years ago, I broke my front 2 teeth. They were filed down and had a cap put over them. Last night they decided to break off. After they fell out, I noticed that the caps must have been too big because the teeth on either side of the caps are cracked and will probably need replaced also. I contacted Medicaid and because my son is 18 (what that has to do with anything is beyond me) they said no help was available. I've spent hours on the net trying to find help to no avail. As you can imagine, $10,000 with your son living with you leaves you absolutely nothing for dental, vision etc. My life isn't the greatest, but I don't do drugs or drink (although, if I did, then I could get help), all I need is a little one time help here. Since the teeth fell out, my self esteem has hit rock bottom. I can't smile and now my speech has been affected. I know that you probably can't help, but I saw this and figured that the worse that could happen is being told 'your screwed'. Been told that a couple of times today already, so what's one more? :-) Thanks for taking the time to read this!! TS
thank you for the info. i am going to try and get help for my husband and i to get our teeth fixed. we cannot afford $5,000.00 dollars. we live in il. you have been very helpful.
I really hope someone can help....situation is this...my boyfriend is 29 years old and has had major teeth issues (from neglect) for as long as he can remember. He has medicaid insurance, which denies most work and due to pain and financial problems, he has had 8 teeth pulled and is now wearing a partial denture, which fits terrible, is painful and annoying. He needs to get either implants (i know VERY expensive) or a permanent bridge (also expensive). I have been looking into dental schools in the area, but they have a long waiting list and are supposedly about 20-25% less than a private dentist (which is still alot). I dont know what to do. We are located in Nassau County, which is on Long Island, NY. Please any suggestions, help!
I am a stay at home mom with a mouth full of pain! I went and got an exam and stays done at a place where the dr doesn't say two words to you. We decided to focus on the tooth that bothers me the most to be root canal or pulled. I don't have 2000 to get a root canal so I called to get it pulled and they want me to do two more $$$ appointment before. I it want it out so is can enjoy my kid without a washcloth of ice Tony face
