Where do you live? We have helped many patients in North Carolina who are in similar situation as you are in with dental pain and sticker shock. If you have eligible Medicare plan and medical necessity, Medicare will pay up to $15,000 toward the placement of the implant. If this is case it will effectively cut the cost of the entire implants and crown portions in more than half. If you are nearby give us a call. But if you are further away, I would recommend look for Medicare Certified oral surgeon for your eligibility.

I've been wanting dental implants, but they cost over 40,000 dollars to get. Shocking for sure! I'm retired; no dental insurance other than an annual checkup to tell me what's wrong with my teeth, but the rest is up to me to pay for. Whaaa???? SHOCK!!! BUT that's AMERICA for you! Our country does NOT provide dental coverage with Medicare A and B...OTHER THAN AN INITIAL CHECKUP! 

 

I'm in SO much pain right now which is why I'm posting here for help! If I can't get dental implants, then dentures will do for now. I just got to get rid of this dental pain!!!

 

If anyone knows of a dentist or dental group that will work with me financially, and let me make monthly payments directly to the dental group, please let me know. WHY do we have to get to this point in life and NOT have dental care as full coverage along with our Medicare A and B???? I'm truly disappointed in our country for this because DENTAL and MEDICAL CARE GO HAND IN HAND!

 

I'm in tears right now because of dental pain. All I've been able to do is use Ambesol, but that won't cure the dental issues. Thank you for any help you can offer.

 

My prayer is to come into millions of dollars so I can start a "Teeth for Seniors" fund and pay for seniors to get the dental care they should be getting after retirement right along with their medical coverage through Medicare B. I'm just blown away that our country does not cover that! 

 

I'm PRAYING for help with this matter. Thank you!

Dental implants and root canals started the disease process that killed my dad in about 3 years. He was 53. Dad's cousin woke up the morning after a root canal with problems that culminated in his painful death just a few years later, also in his 50s. 

 

I knew my two root canals were problematic from the start. Multiple second opinions dismissed me. My MD had no solution for odd things like being unable to open my eyes all the way, dragging a foot, etc. Those root canals almost killed me and both had to be pulled out three years later when Xrays showed that they had almost eaten through my jaw at the base. I won't have anything implanted, ever again! 

 

  • Obviously, this isn't everyone's experience, but it you have allergies or autoimmune disease in your family - think long and hard before going down this road. 

 

Uninformed Consent: The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care is a good read. I also recommend checking out the IAOMT website and searching out a dentist who specializes in using less toxic material.

What would you consider as a confident and beautiful smile?

 

Measuring all the joy you might experience by speak distinctively, or tasting a juicy apple, as well as feel free to brush your teeth without having to endure any pain.

 

Well, with dental implants you can actually improve your overall dental health, instead of having dentures which need to be removed every night before bedtime. Plus, you can eat and speak with a newly found confidence.45743449_m.jpg

 

 

 

They can provide a foundation that is secure, improve nutrition and enable you to eat foods that you prefer. Furthermore, implants may also help to prevent deterioration and bone loss.

Advantages and benefits you may get from dental implants

It lasts a lifetime

Dentists use titanium, which is a biocompatible and non-corrosive material with the capability to integrate/fuse fully together with your bone. It’s been medically used from nineteen-fifty and was proven completely effective and safe. They are also durable and strong, plus, by taking care of them properly, it is able to last up to the end of your days.

 

Usually, implants can take the place of your own teeth

Teeth replacements with supported implants will be able to act the same as your natural teeth. They can allow you to regain between seventy and ninety percent full power to chew any food you may choose.apple-1526601_1280.jpg

 

 

 

Their appearance is exactly the same as your natural teeth and no-one will be able to notice the difference. You should care for them in the same way as original teeth by flossing and brushing, as well as getting regular cleanings at the dentist.

 

They will prevent loss of bone

In the case of a missing tooth, the underlying jaw bone deteriorates. This is caused by a lack of stimulation from normal biting and chewing. During the first twelve months after you lose a tooth, the volume of bone might reduce by about twenty-five to thirty percent. Without replacing it with an implant it can continue to deteriorate.

 

Implants can provide stimulation that is healthy to help your jaw in preventing loss of bone. This is because they offer function and stability that is the same as healthy natural teeth.

 

Adjacent teeth to implants can be kept stable

With missing teeth, the teeth adjacent to the opening becomes destabilized and shifts into the open gap. This position change can easily affect your bite adversely. Furthermore, it could possibly cause TMJ issues or difficulty in chewing.

 

Implants will fill this gap to stabilize your jaw, as well as prevent the teeth next to the opening from shifting. Your teeth alignment and bite can be preserved with implants.46737669_m.jpg

 

 

 

Instead of normal dental implants, you can also opt for mini dental implants.

 

Implants may also prevent premature aging and facial sagging

Dental Implants can maintain jaw structure and prevent loss of bone. Without dental implants, you may experience loss of bone that is progressive in the jaw where there are missing teeth.39826174_m.jpg

 

 

 

This could also cause the height in between your nose’s tip and your chin to decrease and lead to your face’s lower part appearing as if it’s collapsed. These consequences that are surely undesirable may include a chin that looks pointier, thinner lips, plus, wrinkled and sagging skin which may all make you look very old.
