Help! I feel really bad and do not know what to do. I have no money and I a barley getting by with my rent. So going to the dentist without any dental insurance is out of the question. My back tooth really hurts and it is starting to effect my every day living since the pain is so bad. What can I do? Please Help
You may want to look into getting a dental discount plan, since you have immediate needs. Dental Insurance at this point may not cover you to see an Oral Surgeon or they may have a long term waiting period before you can be covered. I taken a monet to give you some information about what a discount dental plan is as noted below.
This type of dental plan is not insurance. The managing organizations have negotiated with local dental offices to establish a set price for a particular dental procedure and offer deep discounts (some up to 70%) off the regular ADA pricing code. This plan has several advantages over traditional dental insurance plans, namely, there are no exclusions for pre-existing conditions. This allows a patient to receive immediate coverage for work without meeting any waiting period requirements.
If you are not seeing a regular dentist or do not have dental insurance enter your zip code at http://www.drdental.com/and locate a dental plan that has next day services.
