Dental opinions, How do you go about finding the right dentist

Posted on Oct. 23rd 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dentists Comments Off on Dental opinions, How do you go about finding the right dentist

I have not been to the dentist since I was 18 and still on my parents dental insurance plan. I am 21 now and know I really should see a dentist. My family dentist I never really liked and is partly why I have not been back to see another dentist even though I have dental insurance though my job.

I have a plan where I am told I can pick my own dentist but I am worried about getting someone once again that I do not like and will make me upset about even going. I need a caring dentist that does not see me as a monthly car payment. Any advise for choosing a dentist.

Dental insurance advise, I want to keep my dentist.

Posted on Jul. 13th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Fear, Dentists Comments Off on Dental insurance advise, I want to keep my dentist.

I just lost my dental insurance that I had with my prior job.   I loved the dentist I was going to but was told the only plan they are a provider of was the one I had with my job.   I called the dental insurance company I was with to be told it was a group dental plan only.

What can I do ?  I do not have the money to be paying out of pocket but do not want to change dentist.  She was the first dentist that did not make me feel bad about my teeth and was caring to my needs.  I am a bit of a baby when I have to go to the dentist.  Please give  me advise.

Dental Opinion needed, Should I pull my tooth or crown it?

Posted on Jul. 5th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Cavities, Crowns, Dental Help, Dentists, Extractions, Root Canals Comments Off on Dental Opinion needed, Should I pull my tooth or crown it?

I have a bad back tooth it is the last molar on the bottom right side of my mouth.  I seem to be always having problems with that tooth on and off.  I went to the dentist that said he could  save it by doing a root canal and putting a crown on it.

I have dental insurance so that will help me some regarding the cost.  However, I really just wanted it pulled.  I had filling done on this tooth twice before and I am tired of messing with it.  The dentist said he could pull it but would advise against it.  Saying that my teeth may start to shift.

It is in the back and I really do not care.  Will my teeth really start to shift that badly without it? Wanting to pull it but would that be a big mistake?

Dental Care, I have a cracked tooth

Posted on Jun. 28th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Crowns, Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Dental Care, I have a cracked tooth

What will a dentist do to fix a cracked tooth?  I noticed a few days ago that I cracked my tooth on a bone.   I can see a light line going down the side.  So I made a dental appointment.   I will be able to see the dentist in three days from now.  I am eating really soft foods because I am afraid to brake off my tooth.    What will the dentist do to fix it?  Will I need to have a crown or can they just use bonding or something like that?

Second Dental Opinion, Getting a second opinion on dental work

Posted on Jun. 26th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Second Dental Opinion, Getting a second opinion on dental work

The dentist my wife went to seems over priced.  We do not have dental insurance but can afford to have dental work done just do not want to be priced gouge.   I would like for her to get a second opinion from a different dentist to make sure that the dental work needed is with in reason.    I am worried that the dentist is making her have more dental work or at least more expensive dental work then necessary.

My wife just feels it would cost us more money for a second opinon to get then to just have the dental work done.  Is there a way to get a second opinion for little to no charge if we are able  get the X-rays from the first dentist.

Second dental opinion, Tips on getting a second dental opinion

Posted on Jun. 22nd 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Second dental opinion, Tips on getting a second dental opinion

I went to the local dentist a few days ago.   It was the first time going to the dentist in two years.  Since I did not have a regular dentist I just went to one out of the phone book.   I was quoted about $500.00 worth of dental work that the dentist stated I needed to have done.  It is not so much I doubt  what he is saying I need.  I know it has been some time since I last been to the dentist I figured I may need more dental work then just a cleaning.

My really questions is how do I know I am getting the best rate?  If I shop out the dental work do I have to go into each dental office for a check up and a second opinion or can I get cost over the phone?  I would like a second opinion without having to pay for the check up and X-rays each time. What do I need to do to get the information I am looking for.  Do not want to have to pay more for dental work then necessary.

Second dental opinions, How do you know what dentist to trust

Posted on Jun. 21st 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Cavities, cleaning, Dentists Comments Off on Second dental opinions, How do you know what dentist to trust

When getting a second dental opinion how do you know which dentist is correct?

So here is the story.  Last year I was told by the dentist at the time that I needed to have a filling done on one tooth and to have a deep cleaning.  So wanting to make sure I got a second dental opinion from a different dentist. That dentist said that I do not need a filling or a deep cleaning.   Okay so I when to him for just the regular cleaning he said I needed.

Six mouths later he says now I do need to have a filling and a deep cleaning.  He gave me a cost that was much higher then the dentist that I when to before him.  This bother me so I when to another dentist for a second opinion.  That dentist told me that I do not need a deep cleaning and that I do have a very small cavity on my tooth but it was too small to worry about doing a filling on yet.  When different dentist tell you different things how do you know which one is telling  you the truth.  I do not want to feel like I got bate and switched.  Which is how I am feeling.  They tell me what I want to hear the first time then try to get me to do all this expensive dental work the second time I go.   What is up with that?

Botched up Root Canal done by my so called Dentist.

Posted on Jun. 20th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dentists, Root Canals Comments Off on Botched up Root Canal done by my so called Dentist.

Four days ago I had a root canal done my general dentist.  I never really cared for her but up until not she did a good enough job.  With this root canal she did not get out all the infection or root in my molar.  Now my tooth hurts like hell and is making my whole mouth hurt as well too.  I tried getting her to look at it but she is putting me off for two days!!  I call and leave message but she will not return my calls.  The office staffing did but to only tell me that  the soonest they can get me back in is in two days.

This is not acceptable to me with the amount of pain I am going to be in.  I feel I have no choice but to wait and I am so upset that this is happening to me.  What can I do about this?  I have to go back but how to I control my temper about how she jerked me off!  Is there anyway I can make her fix up her mess sooner?  I have already paid in full to have this root canal done you think that would mean something to her

Dental Opinions, I have a bad dentist.

Posted on Jun. 19th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Dental Opinions, I have a bad dentist.

My dentist is just terrible!!  I have a dental insurance plan were I have to stay with network dentist but the only one close to me is a big time jerk.   I do not even know why he is in business when he seems to not like his job. He always has an attitude with me over any little thing.  I can not complain about his dental work since I never had him really mess anything up.  It is just is personality that sucks big time.    If I could go to a different dentist I would.  What can I do about his attitude he gives me?

Dental opinions, Thinking about going to a dental schoold for my dental services.

Posted on Jun. 13th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Dental opinions, Thinking about going to a dental schoold for my dental services.

My family is living on a very fixed income right now and money is very tight.  That said I do not want my family oral health to suffer do to our lack of extra income.  My job offers me good health thank goodness but no dental.  Both my wife and I have not seen the dentist in over a year but my daughter is due for her six month check up and I do not want her to go without.

I have be thinking of taking her to the dental school that is here in TX by us.  I called and they said they have no problems with doing dental work on a five year old.  They would be much cheaper then going to a regular dentist however my fear is that I am not getting good dental work done.   It worries me that they may mess up or not catch something.  Has anyone ever had their dental work done by a dental school? If so how was your experience?  Would you go back again?

What is an Endodontic Dentist

Posted on Jun. 7th 2010 by Dental Plan Review in Dental Help, Dentists, Root Canals Comments Off on What is an Endodontic Dentist

What is an endodontic dentist?  What do they do?  By going to an endodontic dentist does dental treatment cost more then going to your family dentist?  My sister has to see an endodontic but she does not even know why since she never asks any questions and just does what her dentist tells her to do.  However afterwords is always upset because she does not know what is going on and why her dentist can not just do the work.

Question about teeth whitening and smoking

Posted on May. 31st 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dentists, Whitening Comments Off on Question about teeth whitening and smoking

I had my teeth whiten at the dentist a little over a year ago.  I am a light smoker but have been tyring to quit and only smoke once or twice a week which compared to what I use to do almost a pack every two to three days I have made really good progress.

My question is that although my teeth are still white they are not as white as they use to be when I first had the whitening treatment done.  Should I go back to the dentist to have them re whiten or wait until I am able to fully quit smoking altogether.   Which I am weening off and hope to be done with smoking in another few months.  What would be best?

What is the worst that can happen if you have no dental care

Posted on May. 30th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Cavities, Crowns, Dental Help, Dental Insurance, Dentists, Toothache Comments Off on What is the worst that can happen if you have no dental care

Can not afford dental care, letting my teeth rot.

I currently have two abscessed teeth that I am sure needs to be pulled and about six cavities that need to be filled. I am on the low side of low income with no dental insurance.   The amount of dental work that I need to have done will cost me more then I can save in four years!    There are no caring dentist that are willing to help me I know since I called five in my area who all said that they would only be able to give between 5  to 10 percent discount if I pay in full.   Please there is no way I can paid cash in full and they think they are doing me a favor.

So at this point what can I do?  I am thinking about letting them go until they fall out.  I do not really care since I can not seem to get any dental care.  I am just wondering if  I continue to do nothing what will happen?  Will my teeth just come out on their own ?  Will I be able to pull them out if given enough time?   I am in pain but I am thinking if the teeth come out that would stop the pain.

Need a Free Dentist, Second Dental Opinion

Posted on May. 25th 2010 by Dental Plan Reviews in Dental Help, Dentists Comments Off on Need a Free Dentist, Second Dental Opinion

Where do I go to get free dental work done?  I do not currently have a job and I have no insurance.  My teeth are not really bad but I know I need to have them checked before I do start having problems with them.  I have called the dentist in my area but for the X-rays, cleaning and office vitis only they are still quoting me 100 – 175 dolards.  That may not seem like a lot to you but to me I do not have that kind of money.  Please advise were I find a dentist that will do the work for free.
