I am a 47 yr old woman who had her teeth out in april of 2009. I am on a fixed income which my rent takes. I feel very unpretty and have a hard time eating. I have lost about 25 lbs. I have looked around to get some help, but have come to dead ends. The State  Of Maine refuses to help unless it is a medical nessecarry. Could I get some help getting dentures PLEASE?

I am 42 years old. I am applying for disability due to a rare heart defect I was born with but not diagnosed until last September. I had a triple by pass that month and in November I had a heart attack. I have not been able to work since last year and the only insurance I had was thru my wife. She left me last month so now I have no insurance, no job, no income and waiting for SSI could take years. I am currently on my third application for SSI. Meanwhile my teeth are terrible. Every tooth is loose, I only have 26 left and they all need to come out. I need dentures as well. None of the dentist are willing to work with me, they all want the money up front. My free clinic can not handle the amount of work I need to have done so instead of taking one tooth at a time they simple refuse to do anything. I am desperate at this point and everyone I ask for advice concerning this tells me to try this website. So I am writing to your school to see if anything can be done for me.
Thank you

I am 47 and I need help getting dentures because medicaid in missouri don't pay for no adult dental. I get my teeth pulled at Mt. View free clinic. I just have 7 more teeth to get pulled. I am disabled and fighting to get my disability. So beside medicaid I get food stamps and that is all I have. I wish I could get me some dentures after that is done so I won't look funny and that.

I'm not an expert on the where or when of dental clinics but if you do need any more info on what is available for your father you could try---Starshine---Anonymous40784---they are my aidmates here and have pages of information that might help you further.

Reply to getfreedental:---What pictures are you talking about? I didn't get my dentures through GetfreeDental I got them at an Affordable Dentures clinic and I called them after seeing their ad on TV. Maybe we're both confused, maybe I have a memory lapse but I don't recall anything about pictures or what your referring to. If I said anything about pictures you will need to contact me privately here on aidpage. Thanks  sincerely sheshe030

 in response to sheshe030...   Thank you again for all of your help.  I'm so sorry to hear of your house fire.  I pray that everyone was safely out of there.  It's rare these days to find someone with a heart, especially on the internet.  I do appreciate anyone that is kind and genuine like you.

Reply to raeree:---Hi I had to comment on your post and please tell your father that my teeth are beautiful, I have had several comments on how pretty my teeth are and I'm asked if their mine or dentures. I am happy to tell anyone that wants to know that I wear dentures and we had a house fire in Dec and I wasn't wearing my lower dentures and they burned in the fire and Affordable Dentures repaced them for free. I was totally shocked that any business would do that anymore but they did and I will forever be grateful to them. Your dad won't find any dentures as inexpensive as theirs and the price includes all extractions needed. I hope your able to convince him to go and remember he has to be there early and he can call them and get any info he needs, they are very nice about informing you of everything they do. I wish you the best. sincerely sheshe030

 in response to sheshe030...   Thank you so much for trying to help sheshe.  I did see the ad for affordable dentures.  My father tried to tell me that it was more expensive and the dentures were of cheap quality.  But, knowing that you are a satisfied customer may convince him otherwise.  I am contacting him right now to let him know.  I really appreciate you taking the time to try and help me out.

 in response to raeree...   Reply to raeree:---I can totally relate to your fathers situation and hopefully I can help you. I don't know what state your in but you can either google this or look in your  local phone book. The name is Affordable Dentures and I speak as a very satisfied patient of theirs. If you can come up with a little over $300 he can go in and get any teeth remaining pulled and beautiful new dentures put in the same day. The $300 covers it all. They have 3 different price ranges the highest being $630 for the premium set of dentures. There isn't really that much difference in how the teeth look the important part is he can eat again and be out of pain and his life is really changed by having good teeth. I highly advise anyone that needs dentures to try to find one of these offices. I live in Wa state and there are only two offices in the whole state and people travel from out of state to our offices in Wa just to get their teeth pulled and dentures put in. They ask you to come back the next morning so they can check your gums and take the new dentures out and clean them and they put them right back in and your on  your way back home. They don't take appointments you just show up at 7:30 AM and sign up for what you need and take a seat and they will call you in on the order that you signed in on. They do not fill teeth or do any other dental procedures other than dentures and extractions. For a lot more money they can do the post inserts into the gums that the dentures set on but that is much more expensive. Anyway I wish you all the luck in the world.  Remember---Affordable Dentures--Sincerely sheshe

I am trying to find emergency dental care and dentures for my father.  He is a retired disabled veteran.  The government will not help with much of anything let alone some dentures.  His diabetes has erroded the bone that holds his teeth in.  They are popping out one by one.  He is 57 years old and can barely eat.  The doctors want around $16,000 to do extensive work to try and save his remaining teeth.  He says at this rate he would settle for the dentures if he can't afford to save his teeth.  Well, he can't afford the dentures either.  If anyone has any advice they can offer I would greatly appreciate it.
