    Dental

    I am terrified of going to the dentist but I know I have to. I’ve waited too long and now my teeth’s are crack and I don’t have any left. I know it will be expensive but does anyone know what can be done? I don’t have dental insurance and I am on a fix income. Help I don’t have chewing teeth’s left. I probably need dentures. Any answers would be a great help.

    RE: Dental

    I know that it can be scary to go to the dentist for the first time in awhile. Especially when you know that you are going to need to have a lot of work done. I would suggest just being upfront with your dentist. I've found that most dentists really do want to help you. Some dentists are willing to work with you on a payment plan, which could help spread out the costs, or have a sliding scale for what you pay or discounts for uninsured patients. It can't hurt to ask There are also some low-cost dental clinics out there, or you could try dental schools (sometimes they charge less because their students need training...don't worry they will be supervised). Don't be embarrassed to ask your dentist about payment options. Shop around for dentists who have the best rates. Hope this helps!

    Seek a dentist with good reputation in your area, not the type of chain practice. Discuss with dentist and be honest and frank about your situation. Do not try to stiff him by not telling the truth. If live near dental, it would be a good choice. They need someone like you and you pay a lot less. I am a retired dentist.

    I think you should trust your dentist. For example, when I was in the same situation (my dentist wanted to remove my tooth and insert a ceramic tooth instead), but I didn't listen to him and a year later I had such a strong inflammation that I could not even eat. I urgently went back to Stoke On Trent to cure my teeth. You know what? I was very glad that this dentist didn't tease me with phrases like:"I told you!", and quickly and painlessly eliminated the problem... Now I am very glad to help people, directing them to really high-quality services of the dentist who helped me https://dentist_in_stoke-nwky.envatosites.com/.
