We got the same problem here, I could not effored the extra coverage in my Basic health Care packed aim 34 years old I lost almoast all my teeth, and now aim so ashemed to talk to people always covering my mouth, I have holes lost teeth so there is a gap etc.. it is horrible, I see myself as a ugly person (never did before), can not kiss my man (we are over 8 years together he said he does not care about it) but I cant change it, I feel not like woman should feel, and when I look into the future... it looks even more depressing. Aim looking for work, who want's to take someone in with teeth missing and broken. I never before had a hole in my life in almoast 1 year ( I ve got a sort of sickness that I have to throw up for days and the acid of it made my teeth rotten) all this happend and I cant go to the dentist, cause I cant pay him. This is a horrible circle and I feel like I will never look normal again...

I am sorry that you are having trouble with your teeth but your problem does not sound like dentail problem, it sounds more like a medical or emotional problem (eating disorder). You may not get the nutrition that your body needs. I would worry about other problems you could have, calcium defeincy, heart problems, acid reflex is what the surgeon thinks caused my brothers esophigus cancer. I would go to the doctor as soon as possible and find out what the the problem is. It sounds like you...

If your tooth lose is due to a medical condition your regular insurance may cover it. good luck.

@Alice...she couldnt afford dental and now has lost of her teeth and the ones that are lef are rotting. How is that not a dental prolem? Even now with proper care, she would likely lose the rest of her teeth but be able to get dentures. Martina, I am so sorry and hope you are able to get the care you need, and dont be ashamed to show your smile...I bet it is beautiful :)

In our country (the USA) people shouldn't have to go without medical or dental care.

Please take a minute to sign - basic dental care is so important & so many of us can't afford it now. Healthcare in the U.S. is a FOR PROFIT BUSINESS and that isn't going to change. We have to find a way to help make sure those who need help, & aren't able to help themselves, get help.

I am greatful to have some dental coverage, but I do have friends and family members without medical or dental coverage because they make as little as a dollar over the limit for medicaid and too much more for the low cost coverage. At least something should be done for people who are not in the position to provide dental or medical care for themselves.
Yes I am taking a stand for proper health care for the needy. If we can spend billions of dollars on fashion and other projects of less importance why not spend it on life!

Here's the solution: shoot 10 dentists and ask the rest to charge a reasonable price. Keep shooting till the problem is eradicated.

my fiance was in the military and he can't get dental through the VA not sure why though. they say they won't pull any of his teeth unless it is a life or death emergency, but he has constant toothaches n his teeth are rotting out of his mouth. I say that has to fall under the lines of important cuz if he has an infection then it's going to go thru his whole body then eventually kill him and I don't want that happening and we don't know what to do.
