Dental benefits for braces, If I do not get braces what would happen.


Dental benefits for braces, If I do not get braces what would happen. I live in Texas and I have not been to a dentist in over six years since I never could afford to have dental insurance. My teeth were starting to hurt me so I went to a dentist in Mexico that told me I have eight cavities.

He also stated that I should get braces since I had an overbite and a few crooked teeth. But even getting braces in Mexico will cost me more money then what I can currently afford. I am 23 and I have self esteem issues as they are I am not sure I could deal with having metal braces in my mouth for over two years. I am not sure if I should get a second opinion or what I should do.

Dental Insurance Coverages for having two dental fillings and a crown


I know I need at least two filling and a new crown.  I have a new cavity under my crown which I told that to have the filling done they can not save the crown and then I have another tooth that has a two service cavity that also needs to be addressed.

I know I needed this work done two months ago but have not yet did it because of lack of money.  I wanted to shop out dentist as well as maybe get dental insurance.  So I would need to have something that would not have a waiting periods for the services I mention.   What would be a good plan to shop and how do I know my cost for my services needed when looking at the coverages.

Dental Halth Care, Few cavities no dental insurance


What can I do?  I was told that I have three cavities in my molars two on top and one on the bottom.  I do not have dental insurance.  I am not in major pain but one of the cavities is hurting me on and off.

The dentist will not take a payment plan from any one.  I was quoted 250.00 for all the filling needed but only have about 100.00.  I would have to wait another two months before I would have 250.00 but that only if I do not spend my money during that time.   Advise please.  Living in AZ.

Dental discount plan, Will it really help me save money


My two old son has three small cavities in his baby teeth.  I do not have dental insurance but I took my son for his first dental appointment at two as I was advise to do only to find out he has these cavities now.

I do not have the kind of money really needed to have the filling done.   I been looking for dental insurance.  But the plans I seen have a three to six months waiting period for fillings.  Will getting a dental discount plan really help save me money?

Dental Health Care, Fiances filing fell out need dental help


Well my fiances filling fell out yesterday.  I tried calling his dentist for a dental appointment but the dentist he goes to now is only open during my fiances work hours.  My fiances will not ask for a day off from work to get his tooth fixed.

He says he can not afford to ask for days off when he just got the job two months ago.  I understand but I do not think it is a good to not have fixe right away.  How long can he wait on fixing his filling any advise on getting him to go?

Dental Care, What is it like to have a dental filling done


I am a liltle worried I was just told by my dentist that I have a small cavity in one of my back molars. I have never had a cavity before so this is upsetting news to me.  My dentist set up an appointment to come back to have the filling done in a week from now.

Since I never had any cavities before I do not know what it is like to get a filling.  Is it scary?  Does it hurt a lot to have done?  How long will I be in pain for?
