Careful they don’t drill too deep in the upper teeth, it’s a short trip to hit your brain! Good luck, I don’t think anyone loves going to the dentist. I told my dentist he was the cause of all my dental issues. I didn’t have them til I started going to him.

" cause of all my dental needs "

Wife went to her friends husband dentist a few years back, been on pain killers ever since. Implant surgery did not go as planned.

It’s pretty important to pick wisely when selecting a dentist. My problems really aren’t my dentist’s fault. I chomped down on a chunk of metal in some food many years ago. He’s just fixing the long term effects of that.
That said, there are dentists that will drill into teeth that aren’t decayed just to get your money.

Finding a good one is definitely worth the effort and no matter how far you have to drive to get there.

I've often wondered why or how the dentists of America missed out on the Medicare bonanza!

Broad brimmed hats protect your ears along with sunscreen!

For some goofy reason, Medicare doesn't cover dental. They figure that we need pills to help with stress, but we don't need to be able to eat.

Would you believe i would travel 400 miles just for a cleaning? While living in NC i kept my dentist in Maryland. However i worked in MD sometimes and other times visited the kids.

Regular Medicare doesn't cover
dental (except for emergency
surgery), visual or hearing that
I'm aware of - changed over to
one of those Medicare 'Health
Plans', but need to check exactly
what they do/don't cover ! Need
my 'uppers' done and hoping to
get the 'implant-style' dentures
that kinda 'snap' into place !

I asked my dentist about those implant dentures hoping to end my teeth issues, she said she wouldn't do the work, said I have lots of good teeth left. Left side I need 2 extractions and a bridge, then it's on to the right side with bone grafts and single implants. Please send all spare change you have so I can pay for this work

Spare change? You might want to request spare folded up bills hiding in the corners of our wallets. Wife's friend just spent $ 4K per tooth.
