i have yet to find free or even low enough cost dental care that its even possible to afford. me and my husband both have several missing teeth and are on medicaid, but as alot of people mentioned medicaid covers nothing for adults, just tooth extractions and even then you are on a waiting list of several monthes to see a oral surgeon who does it and by then then you will be in some really bad pain or even die of blood poisioning by the time the tooth is pulled. it has been proven that dental health affects all of your health and if your in poor dental health, it can cause several problems such as heart disease and strokes or even bllod poisioning as i mentioned. this is a crime, how do they get away with this? how many people have to die or become very ill before something will be done to make the goverment cover these much needed services? any suggestions would be greatley helpful for free dental care in the greater las vegas area in nevada, thanx for any help my name kathleen ...

I completly agree with you, my appearance is very important to me, but right now or in the for seeable future I have no hope. I know it is a stretch, but I think that companies should help people on disabilities. They know what might happen, if one take's their medication. It's like some of my medications I have to have blood work to what levels are in my system.I use to read all the warning labels, then one becomes afraid to take the medication.I hope you can get help soon. God Bless

I have a problem, Im 36 years old. I had to have all my teeth removed over a year ago. I am disabled and single. I can not find any help for getting dentures. Every cent I make goes on bills and Im still struggling. I desperately need help. I have bad credit from my younger years so I do not qualify for that dental card where you just make payments.
Having no teeth at all is affecting my life. I never smile, I never go out to eat, I have choked so many times that the hymlick monuver was done. Im so terrified to eat while alone at home, and before I do eat I have to make sure that there is somebody that knows how to do the hymlick.
This is affecting my whole life in every aspect. My kids are even embarrassed by me. Im embarrassed. Im am very depressed and my whole lifestyle has changed to, well to were I dont have a life, but stay at home and never go out or have company.
Please I need help desparetly. But have absolutely not a dime to my name.

People have been commenting on my teeth. It has really lowered how I feel about myself. I'm ashamed to smile. As a result of my missing teeth, people think I'm angry all the time. Or they ask me if i'm sad. I know have a huge gap in the front and have been the subject of ridicule as well. I've been told that if I don't take care of this soon ( missing back teeth) all my teeth will fall out. Dear God, .i need to work. My smile used to be my best asset...losing my teeth because of hardship and poverty has been traumatic for me. It has also been hard to even meet anyone....when they see me smile, they laugh at me. Please, is there anyone out there that can help me?

someday smile
I have never in my whole life had a beautiful smile when I was born and my teeth came in I was missing one of my front teeth. By the time I was in school I was teesed constantly everyday was horriable my parents trying to do what they could took me to an orthodontist to get braces and began a path to a new smile. The procedders were extreamly painful. The doctor once had me waiting so long with my mouth propted open that once it was time to close my mouth i couldnt it was very litally stuck. so he just forced my jaw shut i now have displacement in my jaw and it pops all the time i have lived with it for so long ive just gotten use to the pain. Sadly this was the 80s first my father lost his job then my mother. She took me back to this supposed dr to ask him to remove the braces she had the money in cash to do that. he refused and said he wanted full payment for services past due and amount to remove braces. Well needless to say she didnt have that kind of money so we left I had those braces on my teeth for over five years distroying and roting all of my teeth no adjustments no repairs for broken wires or loose brakets with time they some pieces fell away taking chunks of my teeth at the same time. I even had a device on the roof of my mouth called a butterfly that came loose on one side and became inbeded in my upper jaw. In time my mother found a dentist that would only remove them nothing else. Finally the braces came off but the damage had been done. It has since gotten worse pain physically emontionally and mentaly. My dream is to one day have a beautiful smile to be proud of and eat one item that I have never had. Take my first large bite out of a large gourgues APPLE. Ive never done that and have always wanted too.
Talk to someday smile
I had a beautiful smile, then my financial situation changed. My teeth started causing me pain. I was told I had a infectionin my gums. With seven kids I could not afford the treatment. I was eventually told I needed a scaling and crowns and now I have peridontal disease. I am loosing teeth and all because I'm poor. I was abused by my mother as a child by my husband as a adult but watching my smile dissapear hurts more than the beatings. I no longer smile. And my heart is heavy because I feel like Im being punished for being poor
