My dad was told that he needs to have a large size cavity filled. He is not so much questing that but the dentist wants to put a $600.00 crown on the tooth as well. And that is the cost with my dad’s insurance. I never heard of having to crown a tooth because of a filling.
However the dentist is saying that the tooth is week and should have a crown so that it does not crack. He thinking he may be taking for a ride though so he did not commit to anything as of yet. I told him he should get a second opinion but he does not want to re due X-rays is there a way to get a second opinion with out new X-rays being done?
I have had this bad tooth pain on and off in one of my back to middle teeth. I have been going to this one dentist under my plan that tells me I have no cavities and does not see anything wrong with my teeth at this time. However good that may sound I still have this pain that comes and goes. Should I put up with it and wait or should I get a second dental opinion?

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.
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.
So I will be having four baby teeth pulled on Monday. I am very nervous about having this dental work done. I am an Adult of 22 years of age but had four baby teeth that never came out. Which made the adult teeth come in all crooked. My parents could not afford to do much with regards to having my teeth taken care of. The only thing they could afford was the cleanings twice a year. I was very lucky never to get any cavities.
Now that I can pay for my teeth to be straighten the first step is to remove my baby teeth. I will not say I am scared, but I never had to have this type of dental work before. What I would like to know is does pulling teeth hurt? I am not big on pain so I would like to know what to expect. Thanks
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.
