Dental insurance that covers implants

Common Questions and Answers about Dental insurance that covers implants


Avatar m tn 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!
Avatar f tn Apparently none of what we are reading is of any consequence to the conclusions of the safety of dental implants for the American Dental Association. Alot of the research reveals what can support the multi-million/billion?? dollar medical and pharmaceutical industry, I think. I was able to get the materials specification from the manufacturer of my dental implant in order to be tested for a reaction to these materials via the Melisa test.
Avatar n tn But implants aren't covered by my insurance, and I still haven't finished paying off the Root Canal/Crown. Ins. only covers cavities, cleanings, extractions, and checkups. Which brings me to my other point. While my dentist is very nice, the folks in the office got mad when I told them I wasn't going to give them any more money for the RCT that was done wrong. Then they have the NERVE to still want money.
Avatar f tn I need to know if there is anything that is actually affordable for getting my dental work done. I went without dental insurance for pretty much my entire life (I'm 26, going on 27). My teeth have always been weak, and even though I don't consume sugary drinks and foods often (usually just occasional sweets on holidays), and I brush/floss/mouthwash every day my teeth still break and rot.
Avatar n tn (Most of the other teeth were between 2 - 4 mm with no bone loss) I was referred to a periodontist who has recommended bone grafts for those two teeth in addition to scaling/planing. Fortunately I have good dental insurance that will cover most of this, but is there any chance of saving these teeth? Both have some mobility.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I am a single mom of 2, sole supporter (no child support) and I work 2 jobs one of which has some dental insurance. It has taken me a while to work up to this but I work with the public on a large scale everyday and I am sick of being asked if I am angry or unhappy because I don't smile. 3 of my front teeth are broken down to the gum line so I have a really unwonderful smile at this point.
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.
631581 tn?1224848261 I have spent, literally, thousands of dollars in the past 3 years on dental work. My insurance covers a pittance after co pay and the initial deductable so just about anything is out of pocket for me. I just had my 3rd root canal this year, I've had 3 teeth pulled this year due to bone loss in my gums and I'm looking at needing 3 implants which, here in the states, cost about $3K each. So I'm going to Costa Rica where it can be done for about a third of the cost.
351846 tn?1273619144 I have to do this over the next year and a half cause my dental insurance only covers so much peryear. I have never ever ever had teeth problems like this.. my teeth look fine for the most part nor do they hurt but last year at my dental check up the x-rays and gum examination revealed lots of problems.. not gum disease but definate gum and teeth issues.
Avatar f tn I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain. Now I have pain on the right side (tumor was left frontal). I had to start the Vicodin again to ease the pain but have to tolerate the nausea. How do you know if your brain is swelling? So many questions and no answers....
Avatar n tn I am NOT averse to wearing glasses after surgery so please keep that in mind. That means that if I need them to correct astigmatism or reading...then I'll get progressive glasses. I would like to have great distance vision (for day and night driving) and especially intermediate to watch TV (about 10 to 12 feet away). I use my cellphone a lot so I would hate to lose that close vision I have now (6 or 7 inches away) but again, if I need be it.
429155 tn?1205676864 I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
299940 tn?1192322967 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.
Avatar f tn I understand that a lot of people have had trouble after implants and I only wish that there was more information about what can go wrong in some cases.. If your dentist is aware of what has happened and is prepared to give you root canal treatment, I would say go ahead and don't look back. Keep smiling folks - cos that is something that hasn't been affected by my numb chin.
Avatar f tn Surely it couldn't be from the mercury fillings in my mouth that the American Dental Association (ADA) and FDA both says are completely safe!' At that point, I began to research metal fillings and their potential effects on people's health. I found some very interesting information online with regard to Mercury poisoning. It was the very first time I have seen all of my symptoms described together. It is like I wrote it myself: "...
Avatar n tn Does this mean my operation is deteriorating so soon? Also, I hear that these titanium knees are good for only 10 years, is that a fact?
Avatar n tn Before that, she was so full of life, making car races, flying planes, being a model for photographes, and photographer herself. All the physicians and experts that she met told her that it was impossible to be due to the Interferon treatment, but before the treatment, all went well. She is so exhausted that she can't fight no more against medical community in order to admit the origin of her symptoms and to push them to try to find a beginnning of solution.
211940 tn?1267884866 It is an extreme ache down to the bone, that is unbearable at night. Even with pain medicine and sleep aides, I get about 2-3 hours a night. Finally, I went back to my own doctor and asked if he could help me, he said yes. He sent me for an MRI, and then to an Orthopedic Surgeon.
Avatar n tn Make sure you have good insurance that covers major illnesses/surgery and rehab if needed. He was in acute rehab for a couple of weeks and as of Friday 10/19, he is now home. He is talking better. He is thinking better. He can move is right arm somewhat. He is walking on his own. with little assistance. He eats everything on his plate and feeds himself. He always had a joke to tell, which he hasn't told any jokes yet, but he can recognize when to laugh and what is funny.
Avatar n tn I found some links regarding this when I did a search for olfactory damage since I had a cat-scan done and the ENT specialist said that although the scan did not show anything - that it sounded like my past illness had caused some olfactory nerve damage. There also has been some mention of possible damage being caused by certain medications. I am going to talk to ENT again regarding possible surgical solution to this since I have seen some info on this being successful before.
Avatar m tn I notified all of my doctors when I realized what was going on and they all told me that the belief that mercury fillings cause migraines was quackery and that insurance would not pay for the removal. They all wanted to give me drugs to mask the symptoms. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to just pay out of my pocket to have the fillings removed. I then followed the removal with a heavy metal detox called HMD.
Avatar n tn The iui only cost 350.00 but my insurance covers 100%of that we only pay the co pay.The thing that's costing the most is the injections.The nurse said yesterday that the shots give you better eggs then the clomid by itself does.I totally agree I'll never understand how these kids go out and get pregnant and doesn't even want them but if I thought about it to much it would drive me crazy.This whole process is so nerve racking.
1462588 tn?1345065395 ) Amy _ I was prescribed menopur and had a trying time with mixing the med last cycle. How is that going for you? Lydia- Praying that you have a successful cycle . How does the heparin work in conjunction with the IVF meds and how often are you reporting for PT/INR PTT. Robo-Hi how is the LUP treating you? Also, did you get the polyp removed? Melram- Thank you so much!!! No I've never tried gestational surrogacy nor do I know anyone who has.
Avatar n tn hoping the negative result on monday meant that was out of my system... but you never know. obviously there is a reason for NOT taking a hpt... but i think i needed the boost... LOL. the waiting is causing the anxiety to take over. thanks for you response.
Avatar n tn I am so worried that he has some sort of a medical condition that we don't know of that is causing these hives. Lately his eyes look sickly to me. I know I worry about him alot but after all he is my baby. I wish I had some answers. We see a pediatric allergist for his other multiple allergies and we do totally avoid what he is allergic to everyday.
162948 tn?1205256292 I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal. Any advice/stories would be appreciated. Thanks.
