Dental insurance that covers crowns

Common Questions and Answers about Dental insurance that covers crowns

insurance

I've been going to the dentist now that I finally have insurance that covers it. For many years I didn't, and if it was a filling for me or school clothes for the kids... well, guess who won- lol. The little sh*ts gotta have their $70 sneakers y'know! I'm on a medication that some people say is bad for teeth so who knows... but I'm thinking it's more likely the Hep C, plus deep cavities, plus Big Red gum... sure isn't fun though. I'm afraid tx might render me completely toothless!
i am 33 week and i go in this morning for a root canal they say that the third trimester is the best time to get dental work done. Because in your first your babies organs are starting to develop.
my dentist make a cast, fills the tooth (it isnt regular filling material so it needs to be refilled), whittles the sides all around (even the good part so the crown covers the tooth. its stronger that way), takes another impression, places a temp crown. then i wait a month for the lab to make my new crown. temporary crowns sometimes can be a little irregular but if you are in pain go back now. if you do need a root canal it probably is not your dentists fault.
when it came time to pay my bill, (while I was still all swollen and recuperating and not yet aware of how messed up I was) I was having insurance issues, so they actually opened up other patients files in front of me and showed me their paperwork as proof that if I hounded my insurance enough, they will pay. They actually gave me photocopies of other peoples financial statements. I have more pages of strangers files than I do of my own!!!! Now dont get me wrong, I am not a doctor basher.
that resulted in the same problem you describe. my dentist recommended that 1st i sign up for a low cost dental plan like carington care that offers huge discounted prices on tooth repair. you can apply on line at caringtoncare.com it cost $16 a month for my wife and me total. it covers everything antway after i got it the dentist did a root canal ground the tooth down and put a crown on.
Not many dentists or dental Unversities will blame dental problems on a autoimmune diseases because Health Insurance would have to pay for bridges, dental inplants, crowns, root cannals, periodontal cleanings and so on. The Dental companies, such as, 3M and Nobel Biocare are far more shady and greedier than the pharmaceutical companies. If you don't believe me, call Nobel Biocare and ask them if they have a patient assistant program, the operator will practically hang up on you !
THEY WANT TO DO AN OUT PATIENT SURGERY BUT, I SIMPLY CAN NOT AFFORD IT. MY INSURANCE SUCKS AND IT WOULD COST US AROUND $2000.00. I AM NOT SAYING THAT MY DAUGHTER IS NOT WORTH IT BUT, IT JUST SEEMS OUT THERE FOR BABY TEETH. I THINK SOME DENT. WOULD RATHER IT COST YOU MORE TO GIVE THEM THE PLEASURE OF WORKING ON A PERFECT PATIENT?!
last week i visited the dentist for the first time in 7 years. i was informed that i had several bad cavities 2 of which were very severe. i am not familiar with the medical jargon so what im saying is based on what i assume he said, he tld me that my top left mouler might need a root canal because the cavity was very deep and near the nerves, also i was told something about 3/4 infected roots? My problem is i wnt an impartial advice because im afraid the doctr might try to scam me.
For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
One time in the past at that point, I had an actor from Hollywood tell me to scrub out the wound (it was not dental) with a toothbrush and hydrogen peroxide. That was rediculous as the peroxide is recommended when the wound is fresh, but afterwards kills fresh cells, and does nothing for interior conditions of the blood stream. As I was new to the jungle I did not know about the acidity of tropical fruits grown in acidic volcanic soil.
I don't have the terminology down, but I'm trying to understand, so maybe I can take an extra Lyrica when I get this pain, intead of spending a thousand or so in dental work. Nah, the dentist that did the crown on a healthy tooth was one I saw when I tried to find a less expensive dentist. You do get what you pay for! That one had equipment that I swear could have belonged to the Marquis de Sade! I really should go make myself a sandwich now; I'll check back in later.
My son and I also have extremely sensitive teeth. From all my dental work we found that my nerves in my teeth also never receded like they typically should when you become an adult. Eating cold foods hurts, whitening hurts, etc.. The only thing that I have found to help with trying to whiten my teeth and my son's is walnut powder. I also have him brush with whitening toothpaste at least once daily and walnut powder as needed.
I have Kaiser dental insurance. For a checkup I phone and make an appointment. The next person I talk to is where I check in for the appointment. The next person is the dental hygenist (teeth cleaning). The last person is the dentist. Where along this path do I let it be known about having HCV? Worried about being shunned.
However, I just read Lupus-Alternative Therapies that work and am intrigued by the mercury/amalgam filling removal. I am considering that. I have already removed the majority of processed foods from my diet and am going to start on the organic eating. I am trying to reduce red meat and increase vegetables and legumes. Some of the supplements in the book sound promising too. Don't you just wish the medical profession would work on this stuff too!
I am not a doctor, but my father was a highly respected family physician. He was the one that told me that all the antibiotics, anti-histamines, corticosteroids, and nasal sprays that my top-notch local HMO doctor was treating me with might not work, because he’d seen them fail in many patients. The medical model of treating most diseases doesn’t always succeed with sinusitis, and he recommended saline solution for some relief.
I also had an MRI and they found that I had sinusitis and a sinuscyst. I was convinced I had had a stroke or M.S. Is it possible that this cysts is really causing all of those problems? I have to say that I truly hope so, and if so, I will gladly have it removed.
I dont have health insurance but Im so scared about this that Im gonna get it and go see a doctor and hopefully I can get this very uncomforting feeling dealt with.. I wish all of you good luck and if anyone has figured out any ways to help or an actual diagnosis, please let us know..
Yes, I have had autoimmune urticaria for ten years. At first the only medication that would help was Doxepin. I was on that for seven years and finally got a sensitivity to it and it was no longer effective. With autoimmune urticaria vs. chronic idiopathic urticaria (which they said was what i had for eight of the ten years) I couldn't use antihistimines at all with effect, doxepin was the only one! Plaquenil is our next option.
(See my 9/6/06 post)My ENT doesn't think my sinus infection is causing my dizziness so I can relate to your frustration. I know that allergies can cause a sinus infection and I've read posts that sinus infection causes dizziness but I guess my ENT doesn't think so.
I agree with you that I may have stopped too early. And I also think that if candida has ovecome the other bacteria, that have built foundations to defend themselves against any newcomers. I think you're absolutely right. At least it makes sense. However, as I said before, doctors do not believe in this. So it's going to take skills to convince them that we need candida treatment when they don't believe we're sick.
