Common Questions and Answers about Cost of teeth extraction and dentures


Avatar n tn Hey, you two, here's a couple of big hugs from a stranger in the same situation first. I know how confusing, scary and frustrating it can be. I went to "Affordable Dentures" in Spokane, Washington to have mine made. Even for being affordable they were quite spendy. My mother put most of it on her Care Credit insurance and the other half she paid for with her debit card. I'll tell you about my experience so far, k?
1012542 tn?1313358480 Remember even with dentures you can choose the color, and keep going back until they fit correctly. My husband had all his teeth pulled, and dentures, and it was the best decision for him. You would never guess that they aren't his real teeth, and he has such a good fit, that he has to use 2 hands to get them out, and he uses no type of adhesive.
Avatar n tn My concern is the 18 month procedure, the loss of bone mass from my jaws while the gums and bones are treated and the cost of having implants. Like I've heard before, sometimes the commercial aspects of implants get in the way of proper treatment because its a cash cow for dentists (no offense). Good luck to you as well and I join you in your stress and anxiety.
Avatar f tn The dentist told her that almost all of her teeth on her upper jaw will be extracted and every tooth will be bone grafted before they give her dentures. is bone grafting really necessary before dentures or can we get away without it? It will cost us $330.00 per tooth and they need to remove 8 . It's really expensive so is it really necessary or can we do away with it?
Avatar f tn His look great, and he is very happy with his new mouth. I've had a lot of work done and extractions and abcesses and broken teeth over the years. I'm not afraid of the 18 extractions I'm facing. I'm not worried about the discomfort I will face in the first week or two. I'm looking forward immensely to being able to smile again. Learning to eat something aside from smoothies and yogurt and pudding. I miss salads. So what if I have to chop them up a bit?
Avatar n tn i know people who purchased dentures with them and none of them have been happy with the care or quality. there are lots of low cost dental mills out there with inferior products. this is one of the cases where you get what you pay for. its better to go with an established local practice instead of one whos primary dentists end up being new and/or foreign who buys dentures in bulk instead of having a lab that makes each one to order.
Avatar n tn But it definitely beats not having teeth at all. Also, the lost of one tooth is in actuality a lost of two teeth. Because you lose the lower molar, the opposing upper molar has nothing to chew against and also becomes useless as well. It may super-erupt, meaning that it'll grow into that molar's spot and can cause problems later on. But its only a possibility. Sometimes the teeth don't move much. I personally don't know your finances so I can't really make that decision for you.
748543 tn?1463449675 The position of the skull is influenced by the position of the lower jaw and ultimately the position of the jaw is mandated by the eruption pattern and final position of the teeth. Hence your bite is dictating your posture. Ever wonder why your chiropractic adjustments don't hold for long? Of course we can exercise and be mindful of our posture. However long-term we see that this conflict will have its say.
Avatar m tn have him ask his dr about an antibiotic and then after the infection is gone his dentist can get a better picture of what the root of the tooth looks like and can decide if an extraction is the best way to go.
Avatar n tn I hate to say this cat but after investigating every road myself, you are better off getting dentures. An Implant and crown will run you a bare minimum of $2500.00 a piece now if you get all the lowers you need done you would have a down payment on a house. I have been turned down by over 18 different public services for dental and am now working three jobs just to get out of the pain.
Avatar f tn now my teeth are breaking off at the gum line and I was told yesterday all of my teeth had to be pulled. Broke and no way to pay for this and not sure medicare is going to pay but for sure I know they will not pay to replace them .
Avatar f tn The PATIENT then makes the decsion of which course of treatment to take. In 1993 husband went to dentist. Wanted total extraction and dentures. Dentist said no and husband had multiple root canals and crowns placed. Starting in 2007 each and everyone has failed with loss. He now has a mouth full of rotting snags, is diabetic and on Medicare. If he had been told that root canals and crowns have a lifespan of 17 years +/- 3 years he would never have had the procedures.
Avatar n tn That stuff is cheap and the dentist can give you plastic trays that look like dentures that you put in your mouth to hold it against your teeth for 20 minutes. Flouride hardens the surface of the teeth and makes them resistant to the acids that cause decay. There's a prescription drug called Salagen that stimulates saliva production. You take a pill when you get dry. There are some products with the trade name Biotene for dry mouths. Chewing gum, mouthwash and such. You may like them.
Avatar f tn I am in on a lawsuit on behalf of my son 22 years old and now has to have his entire mouth of teeth repaired- thankfully I think we cought in time to repair not pulled he has been on suboxone from July 2013 to March 2014 and prior to that he had beautiful teeth- somehow this company needs to pay for this damage to so many people - go to another site **************** and you will see many more stories of this and people who would be glad to join a lawsuit- this is now my mission in life and if I
748543 tn?1463449675 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.
Avatar f tn Shots were also place in the saddle block between the upper and lower jaw joint, an injection in front and back of the tooth, and several around the tooth. The lidocaine was wearing off before the procedure was completed. I'm very hard to numb and so the dentists now know this and try to compensate for it.
Avatar f tn Exercise makes all of the symptoms worse, as I experience severe aching and muscle twitching after any kind of physical activity. A MRI of the brain and neck revealed increased areas of signal in the brain not consistent with ms. Blood tests suggest autoimmune disfunction (positive ana, antithyroid antibodies, high IgG for parvovirus and EBV and CMV without being conclusive of connective tissue or thyroid disease.
Avatar n tn The hepatic flexure of the colon makes the turn right in the same area where the liver and the gallbladder are. could be buildup of stool and gas that stretches the colon and causes pain. Has the Dr mentioned this?
