Is it for real that I can get Free dentures and teeth pulled using my MEDICARE? Who do I call first? I am desperate! I just had an abscessed tooth and my face was swollen up so big. I can't stand the pain anymore. Please tell me some up to date info if you have it. THANKYOU!!!! DeeDee

 in response to tazzytag...   Reply to Tazzytag:---Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you but I just got my computer fixed so I hope your still around for this info. First of all you don't call Affordable Dentures about getting free dentures, they have nothing to do with obtaining "free" dentures. You have to qualify through medicare/medicaid and they now allow 1 set of new dentures every 5 years. I got my first dentures 5 years ago and had to pay for them but since then medicaid and medicare has started allowing the free sets. I did have to pay 25$ to have each tooth extracted but that was cheap compared to anywhere else. After you get the OK from medicaid you then call affordable Dentures and they don't take appointments, you just show up about 8:00 AM and they will usually get you in and out within an hour or so. You leave with your new dentures in your mouth and come back the next AM to be checked and your done. The dentures are very nice looking and they will work with you until you get a good fit. Make sure it's the same Affordable Dentures that has the chain of clinics as it may be just a dental clinic with that name. To my knowledge there is no FREE dental care for dentures other than medicare/medicaid so if you think there is any chance at all you may qualify you need to apply and get the ball rolling as it takes several weeks to get the OK for the dentures. Good luck and I hope this helped. Sincerely Sheshe030

hello, i am looking for a way to afford dentures for my husband. he is 47, disabled because of a condition called multi infarct dementia also with parkinsons symptoms. he has dental insurance but it doesn't pay much towards dentures or the surgery needed to remove whats left of his teeth. he has no whole teeth left, just broken off pieces. his teeth became brittle because he was on 13 medications at once until the doctors finally figured out what was wrong with him. he also has medicare but of course they pay nothing. i lost my job when he was in the hospital with double pnuemonia and a collapsed lung. my job replaced me after telling me to take two weeks to get him back on his feet. now he requires constant care. the local dental school wants $3000 to remove what is left of his teeth and this does not include dentures only the removal. we could pay some out of pocket but not $3000. we live on less than $2000 a month. he has to be monitered during tooth removal because he also has a pacemaker due to heart problems along with the strokes.

best alternative is traveling to Mexico (you could get better and less expensive service there)

 in response to astrid_lao...   Hello, Just wanted you to know that here in Fl, if you are on medicaid, they pay for dentures. Have you applied for medicaid because if you are accepted, that is another way of getting free dentures.

 in response to kbee...   Hi. I am also in PainManagment and am on a number of medications. Methadone,oxycontin,oxycodone,and lortab and a couple anxiety prescriptions. this is all due to a car wreck i was in when i was 15 years old. i suffer severe back pain everyday! so i can imagine what your going through. I also have bad teeth now and im positive that my meds are the source.Im only 25 years old and i want and need dentures bad. I am no longer able to smile or feel confident at all.  Before these medications i had GREAT teeth. now im missing a number of teeth and its only getting worse. I have paid for 2 diffrent partials but they hurt my teeth too bad to where. what a waste of money. I am wondering if you found anywhere that will do GOOD work for free or a very very low price??. I cant work and have very little money. I have a 3 yr old and a baby on the way so its not going to change anytime soon. Thank you.
