I am on disability and the only dental coverage medi-cal gives me is *******. They are only authorized to do extractions. This week they pulled two teeth because I couldn’t get anyone to see me otherwise.
I spent pretty much everyday since november til now on the phone (on hold) checking every angle of welfare (or otherwise) programs for emergency dental to help save the teeth with root canals.
I have complications due to radiation therapy for throat cancer. I have several large gaps of toothlessness that concern me and two implants would most probably help.
I’m irritated at the ***** corporate dentists who will pull teeth when they know that a tooth could actually be repaired.
thanks for listening,
