FREE AND LOW COST DENTAL HELP

I am a 51 year old woman in North Idaho. I have over the last few months now, been having re-occuring sinus and ear infections. I have also just started getting migraines. I heard a popping sound in my jaw one night and thought I had broken a tooth. I went to the dentist, who told me that I had 3 abcessed teeth. I had no pain with them. I was put on yet another course of antibiotics. I recently had 1 of those teeth pulled, which I had to borrow money from my elderly parents for. I need to have all my upper teeth pulled to help get rid of these infections.  The dentist told me that this could very well be the cause of my other infections. If these are not treated they can cause even more damage to your health.I have recently lost many hours at my job, who doesn't provide dental coverage. I need to find some resource at little to no cost.

The inventiveness taken for the topic is very serious and need an awareness of every one. This is the concern which exists in the people and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as probable.

hi my name is kristan, i am 22 years old and i am need of some kind of dental assistance.... in Nov. 2007 i went to the dentist to have my wisdom teeth removed and they discovered that i still had baby teeth that had never came out.... so on valetines day 2008 they cut and pulled out all together 8 of my teeth.... it was the most painful ordeal i have ever been the thro... for months i couldnt eat barely talk, awful experince..... then in March 08 i turned 21 and lost my coverage.... when this all began they told me my adult teeth may come in on their own but because of my age it wasnt likely and they havent moved... so i am miss two teeth up front on top and one tooth in front on bottom, i am going to need braces, plus buttons put on my adult teeth so they can be pulled in, they estimated the cost around $4000.... i am a mother of the most amzaing toddler, have a good man, and i am about to graduate from our community college..... but i wake up every morning with a frown not a smile because i hate smiling with my teeth missing.... i am just beginning my life missing teeth should be the least of my worries, but they are one of my main ones...... after i graduate i will have to go to interviews and find a job.... but even with my degree how many employers are going to take me serious with my teeth missing? i have lost so much confidence in myself since this happened i feel like they cut me up and left me out to dry with hardly any rope....  so please if anyone has any information about any dental assistance email me at ting_ting_nacoke@yahoo.com..... thank you

Hi snappy1

I am SO HAPPY to hear that your suffering will be gone soon . A toothache is a horrible thing to have to live with. I think toothache pain is some of the worst pain ever.

Take care and I am praying that you have relief SOON !

Soulight,

I've been up all night with a tooth ache (a bad tooth for months from a chipped tooth turned bad cavity) and had no idea there could be free help available. I found a clinic to check out and you gave the magic words I didn't know to use before ; "pro bono" I found a whole list of clinics in my state. My husband is unemployed and times are getting too tough to afford dental care. I just treated my own horribly abscessed tooth a few days ago by using a homemade salt compress and gauze against my gum. Now I have hope I won't have to endure this pain much longer, THANK YOU SO MUCH AND MAY YOU BE RICHLY BLESSED SOULIGHT!!!

Hi B, I hope you are reading all of the info on this page for dental help.  You have to really search the net and just keep trying.  When an organization sends you paper work, fill it out and keep track of it!  I came here almost two years ago for the same reasons as you and I am just now getting help!  If I had been able to have had it taken care of sooner it would not be so massive.  As it is now, I have to have bone graft on my upper jaw so they can put an insert in for a bridge.  Good Luck and remember to keep trying and don't give up!  I have to run right now, but if you want to talk some more you can email me here.  Sandav1

I'm soon to be 27 year old female with alot of dental problems, and I'm in need of alot help. I am un employed and have no insurance, and I can't seem to find anyone that will help me. I want to be able to smile again. And well I've had dental problems for a couple years now and I know that several teeth will need to be removed. I live in south carolina, and I don't know where to find help or who will even bother to help. It would be great to get something done so I can find a decent job, and get my life back on track.

Hi like a rolling stone

What a challenge you have to put up with only being 20 ! I am so sorry that you have to deal with this. Could I suggest something to start ? If at all possible , get the decaying teeth fixed first so that you have a good foundation for the corrective dentistry. If you could tell me more about yourself ( in private message ) - what state , what county , are you disabled ? a studen? - these things may help in getting your mouth fixed.

 

I don't guarentee anything , but I will try and help

like a rolling stone

Hello there. Im looking for some help and i hope that someone, anyone has got any helpfull solutions. I am currently 20 years old and have major dental problems. At the time being i have an underbite which is not very good looking..My wisdom teeth are on their way through my gums too, which is pushing my front teeth in my lower jaw to jam in front..i can almost litterally watch my teeth become a wreck before i even have a future. Another problem, which at the time isnt quite visible, but one of my front teeth is decaying as well. Ive never not brushed my teeth daily but it seems nothing can help restore them. i believe i will need jaw surgery soon, but financially.. get real.. i got nothing. PLEASE HELP!

For Nancy McGuire :

Your business sounds like it could be helpful to many people, but I removed it from my page. I am neither for or against your business , but I ask that you start your own page on Aidpage to advertise it instead of using mine.

Thank you

I live in Fl. also, check out if their are any dental schools in the area & they may be willing to help.  Are you on medicaid? Use your computer as a resource tool. You will be amazed @ what you will find out.

Hi angellvr6

I'm not sure if you are disabled or not ? if your are disabled , the best bet for help would be donated dental services . Here is their site for Florida ,and the listing of the current counties that they help . Also includes the name of the coordinator for Florida , which would be a good person to contact for ideas.

Other than that , I am not sure where to get dentures for a person your age. Have you tried asking a dentist for a payment plan ? Or , maybe the local Salvation Army or United Way could help . I am sorry that I don't have more info . for you . If I find more , I will make sure you are contacted.

I need your help I am 52 years old about to turn 53 have no insurance make very little money and I can't smile anymore I have 4 teeth left on top and 1 of those has chipped half way up  I have very few teeth on the bottom one which had a hole in it and that one just broke in half and some that are down to the gums. I can't even smile for my Grandchildren when I see them. I want to be able to smile again although I never had pretty teeth because we didn't get to go to the dentist when we were growing up. Then through the years going for fillings and root canals then not being able to get crowns my mouth is a mess. Please I pray can you help me smile again? All I want is to get some dentures and I can't even do that. God Bless you for being here to help us.

Hi jmgabbard

What does that dental clinic not understand about free ? I am so sorry that you have had to go through this situation with your teeth . I will be keeping you in my prayers and I hope you find some relief soon . One more thing , I don't think you should blame yourself . The pharmecutical company  had an obligation to warn people about what the side effects were.

cool its an old-fashioned remedy that really works and is cheap...clove oil works to and like I said oregano oil they are a bit more expensive but  ground clove powder is a buck at the dollar store and to me an awesome blessing from GOD, HE has something natural for everything believe me
