Worked since 14, lost house in 2006-7 mess, shortly after I had brain anurism. Lost all, including two front caps and lower front tooth. Do not want dentures, and need to get some help on bridges , sliding scale. I am a Disabled Adult caring for a Disabled adult son. I would love to go back to work full time, but my teeth are too humiliating. Please help....anyone. I make 1/2 of previous salary, and on Medicaid/Medicare. Thank you for reading.

Hi Grasshopper. I totally understand where you are coming from. Before my grandmother passed she had her teeth pulled for dentures. The dentureswere a joke and they had to replace them 6 times. It was on going for over a year. She was to embarrassed to go anywhere. She ended up passing before she ever got her "teeth". It is just so sad.
Anyways, have you looked into denture implants? They are dentures, vut they install ways to clip them in. That way, you do not have to worry about your teeth falling out! A lot of places will accept the insurances you have, you just have to "shop" around. Call different dentists and see if they accept it. The area I live in is very rural and to get to a dentist that accepts Medicaid you have to travel an hour away. Also, Medicaid may pay for a portion only, so your going to want to ask about that. If that is the case choose a dentist who works on an income based sliding scale. Best of luck to you.
