Dental Insurance, My parents do not have dental insurance.

Saturday, Jun. 26th 2010 11:13 AM

I have a really bad toothache that started in a day ago.  The pain is off and on mostly when I try and eat something.  My parents do not have any dental insurance so having my teeth fix would be costly for them.

I have not told them about my toothache because I know they will get upset with me. They will tell me it is because I do not brush good enough.  However I do brush my teeth twice a day every day.  I am not sure why I should have a toothache now.   I am 15 so it not like I can go to the dentist on my own.

What can I do to stop this toothache pain without having to tell my parents and make them take me to the dentist and pay out money they really can not afford.   Advise please.

    In my opinion I would say that it your parents fault here.It is up to them to take care of your oral health by having you go to the dentist at least twice a year. Whether or not they have dental insurance.

    At least they could have gotten a dental discount plan that cost lest then $15 a month. Really whats the deal? Anyway since you are a minor you can not go to the dentist with out a parent consent. So tell your parents about your toothache. It is about all you can do.

    It is a shame that your parents do not have dental insurance. However you will still need to inform them that your tooth is hurting you.

    You are a minor whatever the reason are for your to have a toothache only a dentist will be able to address them and fix your tooth. Doing nothing will only compound the problem.

    Sorry but your parents need to know. They may be a little upset but I am sure they do not want their child to be in pain.
