Does medicare provide dental coverage for retired americans?

Special cases. Generally medicare does not cover routine dental care, including fillings, extractions, dentures, etc. See the following site for cases where medicare will cover: http://www. Medicare. Com/services-and-procedures/dental/medicare-and-dental-plans. Html for routine care, one needs a dental care/discount plan. Clinics at dental schools may offer services at reduced rates.
No. Medicare does not cover dental problems. Even when related to a systemic disease like sjogran's (where you don't make saliva), you will have an uphill and losing battle. Your best bet is to maintain great preventive care rather than simply letting everything go. A once-a-year exam with x-rays and cleaning or 2 for a healthy person will be less than your cell phone bills and you catch things early!
