Single Mama in NET   in reply to Dental Specialist
Is this a one time deal? What if a person has multiple problems that are needing addressed?

I don't know where people get the idea that when they turn 55, or become disabled, the can get help. I am over 55, disabled, and out in the cold. There is no help. Not for dental.

They have studies here in Austin where they pay you to remove your wisdom teeth. You just have to go stay o we night and they give you either a placebo an investigational pain med or. Regular one. And take some blood. If the meds they give you don't work like you get a placebo they will give you the real thing. And you just have to take whatever it is once. I did it and got all four removed at once and actually my very back tooth on the bottom was in need of being pulled so he did it for free when i was there. So that saved me a couple hundred bucks. They paid me like $600 about 3 months later you get a check.

Anyone know where I can get lowcost dental work in Spring/houston area, my kids have fillings that are needed. We have insurance, but it is one with discounted rates and we still cant afford it.

I don't know if this will help or not, but you can get a Dental HMO through MetLife. I have one and it costs me $12.29 per month (single, not family). You have to go to one of their dentists, but there are some good one here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.
You do have a co-pay when you have major work done (exams, x-rays, cleanings, etc. are all paid for!!), and that is why I'm here. I need MAJOR work (I was hit and it broke many of my teeth, already compromised by long term treatment for chronic pain) and I need to find some assistance with my co-pays. I can make monthly payments, but my credit is poor.
Any suggestions?
I hope this info about the Dental HMO helps.! (I think Aetna has one, too, but when I checked the MetLife one was a bit better.)
Best to all!!

Hello everyone. I work for Kool Smiles in Tyler, Texas and through our emergency patient guidelines, we must take care of a patient in pain, even if they cannot afford treatment. If there is a Kool Smiles near you, I recommend you go there.

My wisdom teeth are shattered too... thats whats going to cost... the university here in Beaumont will clean your teeth and take x rays and all that for $20 im not worried about that i just need to get my wisdom teeth taken care of and make sure I dont have gum disease.. (i have signs)

 in response to duvexy...   where in Texas can you get your teeth fixed for free? i've been looking for over a YEAR. Even the dental school only offers a discount. one extraction still costs over 300.00 - too much for me.
Talk to ratava
Actually that is not correct. Texas has which run an sliding scale basis in where they can get help with their teeth etc. Also, there are Universities in Texas where they fix Teeth for free. Now most people prefer to get their teeth fixed in Mexico because it is even cheaper then Texas and less rules too. Too much violence though. But, your Texas smear is not called for.
