Free Dentures and Tooth extractions?
My Mother is disabled. She is on disability and has Medicare but, it does not cover dental work. Her teeth are in very bad condition. She only has 12 teeth left. One tooth fell out and, she got an infection. Her face swelled up and she is in a lot of pain. I took her to our family doctor and got an antibiotic for her. The doctor said the swelling and infection will pass in a few days but, I am worried about her other teeth. She needs dentures badly but, I cannot afford them and her insurance will not cover them. I have tried affordable dentures but, it is still more than I can afford. We do not belong to any local churches to gain charity from. Is there any other way to get her the medical help she needs for free?

If your Mom is on disability why doesnt she apply for Medicaid? They will pay for dentures. A tooth infection is very serious because it can spread to your body and can be fatal. An antibiotic was a good move and she must take the pills for the entire 7 or 10 days to work. She may not like dentures if she is used to eating with 12 teeth. My mother never liked dentures and preferred to eat very soft food with less than 12 teeth. There is no free dental but she should get Medicaid. Call the Dept of HHS at the county or social services or welfare, wherever it is in your county. These are the options for dental work:

Public, county, city or community health clinic that offers dental services for low income people.
Dental students under faculty supervision performing low cost services at a dental college
A dental group that takes payment arrangements
GE Money Bank medical-dental credit card
Private dental insurance which does not cover much and a long waiting period

Does she have medicaid?They will pay for extractions. They might be able to tell her where she can get dentures. Is there a dental school near by?

Call your state Dept of Human Services. They almost always can direct you to government agencies or private organizations that will help. There is much more assistance available then people realize. It's just the programs are not very well promoted, and people do not know they exist.
