I have all my teeth but one molar on my left bottom side was pulled in 2008 it had a cavity that was filled years ago and the filling had come out. The dentist kept filling it with material that kept breaking down and coming loose from the tooth. It became unbearable it made my jaw throb and I had it pulled.
My teeth have been worn down to bruxism and my teeth in front are in bad shape as well as some molars I am on social security disability and that does not even pay enough to pay the bills that is why I am looking into free local dental services in my area I live in nort east tennessee and cant afford to travel. I have medicare but they do not cover dental at all this is why I am in need of help desperately.
Hello. Have you been for a free check-up anywhere? I suspect you may have been since you know crowns are needed. If not, find a local dentist who will offer a free consultation. I have done this and advised the same to many other people. Let the dentist know that you are looking for a new dentist and need a good amount of work. They will typically offer a free evaluation to earn your business. If they ask about payment, let them know that you will pay cash but need a free evaluation first to know what is needed. Once you know exactly what is needed, you can shop around. Call all nearby clinics, dental schools, and new dental offices. If you are up for travel and need a bunch of expensive work done, consider Mexico. I have heard of many people crossing the boarder to get cheaper dental work. Hope this helps and keep me posted. I will do what I can to help. I also have a list of a bunch of clinics on my site. Take care and God bless!
I need crowns on all of my front teeth uppers and lowers as well as a couple molars. I am diabetic and disabled. I need help and my ssdi isnt even enough to live on.

Has anyone heard of using a moist teabag to stop a bleeding gum? A dentist once mentioned this to me many years ago and I recently tried it. It seem to work well except I did not wet the teabag first:). The bleeding seemed to slow but the teabag suck to the wound (although it was not bad):). Next time, I will wet the teabag first:).
Hello ... I have been on this forum for many years and maybe I am missing something in your post. I have helped many people over the years for free. I am not selling anything. The dental directory is free. I built the directory and sent it to anyone who asked. About 4yrs ago, a technical person built the current site. In addition, the technical person's company maintains the site. I am lost at your comment and feel lost. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. May God bless.
If you truly went thru what I'm going thru, and really want to help people out of "know what their going through" then your in the right place. I personally suggest you go to a site that profits of others issues with things they have little or no control over. I also have my issues due to genetics. Oh yeah, your on the right track, those of us with self-esteem issues make GREAT targets. SHAME ON YOU!!!
