Before You Get Dentures Talk To Me

show starting post by NancyMcGuire
Show newest posts...
Nancy, I've been a member of Aidpage since Dec 2010. I've always been ashamed of my teeth, and I don't like to laugh at all. I have 1 set of "eye" teeth that I don't like, and I've lost alot of my back teeth, and find it hard to chew. I also have a cavity on one of my front teeth. I just want all of them pulled and have a set of dentures, but I'm uninsured. I went to your site and filled out an application. Can you really help me knowing I don't have any insurance? At 53, I would really like to smile for once in my life, and not put my hand over my mouth when I laugh.

Hi Lou Ann,

I am a long time contributor to Aidpage and went through a brief period of loosing my account.  Since being back, I have focused on other threads and just decided to visit this one.  I have helped countless people over the years with dental issues.  In short, if you paid money to a dentist to do a bunch of work that you feel is not complete, you are entitled to feeling better.  Have you contacted the dentist who did the original work?  If so, what has been their response?  Feel free to PM me if you like.  I will do what I can to help.

Take care and God Bless!

Hi, Nancy. One thing you don't really mention is the "Good money after bad" syndrome. I paid $1,100 for my last root canal, only to have that tooth break off at the gumline while I was eating a slice of pizza. Then I had to pay an oral  surgeon $350 to remove what was left of that tooth!   $1,500 on a tooth I could have had pulled for $80! My sister has had dentures since her 30's. She's been trying to talk me into getting dentures for years. Well, she's right!  I've had it.  I'm done.  I will never get another root canal.  I have better things to do with $14,000 than spend it on root canals and crowns that will only go bad and have to be pulled eventually anyway. I want all of my teeth pulled. I want full dentures. Please tell me you can help me with this. Thank you!

This is a response to Nancy McGuire's post.  I sure hope she still comes to this website.  I just read her reponse to someone in need.  Wow, I feel recharged knowing that there are still people out there like Nancy.  She shows compassion and the help she offered was unbelieveable!  I know that you made that persons feel like they won the lottery.  I too feel I need to pull out the rest of my teeth and get dentures.  I have been up all night with pain from a very ill fitting bridge and many cavities still in my mouth after two dentists and 17,000.00 in loans.  I can't eat, sleep and I have not worked for months.  I also have RA so I have a double whammy.  I live in Madison Wi and can not get any assistant from the state.  They say our income is borderline, however we are financed over the hill and can not even afford my meds from month to month.  Nancy, if you are still out there, Thank you, for being you!  You are truly an angel from above.

Any one with ideas or resources on low cost or even better free dentures, you could change me and my kids future. It has become impossible to find employment or be in any public situatuation that envolves speaking. It is hard to be taken seriously when the first question any thinks is "how did she get that way" or "Is she still on meth?". I am immediatly judged and verdict passed by the time I get a sentence out, if they even heard me cause they were staring at my one tooth! Would do work exchange or help someone in exchange, like paying forward with what I have to offer. I need to find a place that doesn't require employment or abuse as qualifications.

Hi Nancy,

Sorry about that, I hit stacy5401's heading instead of her NAME and of course it went right to you!  I apologize for suggesting that you and stacy5401 are one and the same?!     I was too excited that she had

more info on dental alternatives, I wasn't careful.  I did hit her link the 2ND time.

time.  Did you hook her up with a near by dentist?  I guess I will have to wait until stacy5401 responds.  Again, I APOLOGIZE !

Hi stacy5401,

O.k. tell me what I should know before I get dentures.  Are you telling me that the big beautiful smile you have is other than your own?



Talk to Sandav1

Hi Stacy,

What on earth does your smile have to do with Dentures?  And, why is it that when I hit your link, I get Nancy McGuire.  Are You one and the Same?  If you have an alternative to dentures, please let me know.

Thanks,   Sandav1
