I : I know that finding the money to fix your tooth is difficult, but it is in your best interest to follow your dentist's recommendations. Try to arrange a payment plan or ask if they partner with a finance company such as care credit so that you can have your tooth fixed. It's a front tooth and it's important, so don't fool around with a "cheap" quick fix option. ...Read more

Out of state insurance coverage area. Crown fell off. What is best until I can see a dentist: leave uncovered or try to fit crown back temporarily?

Out of state insurance coverage area. Crown fell off. What is best until I can see a dentist: leave uncovered or try to fit crown back temporarily?

It depends: The crown would not come off just like that, there is a problem, possible new caries around the cap causing the cement to dissolve. You May need a whole new crown or even additional Tx. If you have no pain you can keep it off or you can buy some temp Cem from the pharmacy and try to glue it back until you get back home. Most ins. Will cover out of state visits check with your Ins. Good luck. ...Read more

I broke my ankle 1 week ago. Due to a recent family change i had been off insurance for 2 weeks. I went to the ER and they put a temporary splint that?

You may want to : Call that same hospital and ask what you can do. Some allow one follow up visit to their clinic after being seen in their er. I don't know i don't know if your hospital has this policy but you may want to give it a try. Otherwise, you may just decide to go to the orthopedic clinic at the hospital. Hospitals, often have flat fees or sliding scale payments based on income. ...Read more

I recently had a root canal, but am unable to afford the crown. How long do I have until i loose the tooth? My root canal was at the end of feb. I had a temporary filling, but my insurance ran out before i could pay for the crown.

I recently had a root canal, but am unable to afford the crown. How long do I have until i loose the tooth? My root canal was at the end of feb. I had a temporary filling, but my insurance ran out before i could pay for the crown.

That : That would depend on which tooth it was, the condition of the tooth itself, and your bite. A tooth that is in the front of the mouth that does not contact any teeth when you bite could last many years without a crown. A tooth in the back of the mouth like a molar that you bite against and had a large cavity and/or multiple fillings in it prior to having root can break in a few weeks. You need to see your dentist and talk to him or her about your situation. If the tooth is vulnerable, you may be able to have a temporary crown made to protect the tooth for several months until you can afford the permanent crown. ...Read more

Dental school : It is important to treat a cavity soon. Keeping the bacteria count in your mouth low by brushing flossing and rinsing often can help slow the process. But having it restored is the only way to stop the process. Look into dental school clinics or local hospital dental programs for low cost dentistry. ...Read more
