    Don't know if it is the same in all areas.......but it is 'dental health month' here for pets..........much cheaper to get their teeth cleaned which isn't cheap at any time!!! Took my 'little black girl' in and with no extractions it was exactly what they had quoted me........about half the...

    Since I don't work anymore, I pay out of pocket for a very basic medical plan. However, I would also like to have some sort of dental coverage at least for the big-ticket things like crowns or root canals. I have seen a few discount plans online but I don't know if they are really worth it...

    I just had a tooth extracted and bone graft done to get ready for a dental implant. Does anyone have experience with this process? I've been told it's going to be a year-long process by my oral surgeon.

    I've decided to finally do what my mother never did for me, and what I neglected the last 15 years to do for myself: Have my jaw realigned and my teeth braced. I'm having troubles with my mouth as of late and after doing some thinking, I've decided to foot the bill for the surgery. DH's...
  5. Question and Answer
    Does anyone know a good source for current pricing in dental/medical procedures like this? the "code" they gave me is 4341 for Perio Scaling and Root planing, the quote is 425.00 per quadrant (i.e. times 4 or 1800.00 for whole mouth). I'm mostly curious to know if the 25% discount I get is real...

    I had a filling done Friday morning - I had not experienced any pain except for a few days, weeks ago - after some tootsie rolls. I've been in excruciating pain all weekend. I've taken aleve, ibuprofen, Abesol 4x a day, and have found some vicoden from surgery last fall that I've been cutting...

    So early last year, I had some pretty extensive dental work done (removing old root canal, temporary crown, new root canal, new crown) and our dental insurance paid very little of it. They paid approximately 300$ towards everything and we paid $1200ish. Since my work does not offer dental...
  9. Question and Answer
    Dental insurance is not an option for us through hubby's work, but with 2 adult, and 3 kids, we sure could use it to help set off the cost of regular cleanings and the occasional filling. Anyone buy their dental insurance privately, outside of work? Is it worth it?

    Went to get my teeth cleaned this week and was wondering how much it costs in and outside of the US for others. I think my dentist is a little high but I really like the way they run their practice and treat my family so I keep doing business with them. Adult cleaning from hygienist is $90 and...

    ~Ds had his oral surgery three weeks ago and now it's dd's turn. I'm not quite as crazy this time around although I did have a bad weekend, driving myself into a panic worrying about it. We're actually leaving for a camping trip on Friday morning so I've been trying to focus on that while I've...

    I intended to use my little refund from state tax to get my teeth cleaned, but that is still in the state capital so used my little stimulus money. Went to a dentist recommended by friends very highly, but who didn't impress me much. Nice, but absolutely no frills-I like a little gas with my...

  16. Question and Answer
    I went to a new-to-me dentist reccommended by several people. It turns out that I need at least 3 crowns and some fillings re done. That is alot of work and it will end up costing me around 1500-2000 dollars for my portion. Would you get a second opinion from your old dentist? I didn't leave him...

    ~A couple of days ago our very-soon-to-be-six ds sprouted two new teeth behind his lower front incisors. He has an appointment on the 31st but I'm kinda freaking out and I can't wait that long for more info. The new teeth appear to be small and his original baby teeth are strong and in place...

    It seems like other F-villagers are having a time with dentists lately. Over the last three months I think I have lived at the dentist. I went in in August to start some extended work on my teeth, then had to put it on hold when dd9 had a couple issues that needed to be taken care of. We have...

    I have this tooth that has had "issues" to put it mildly. Several years ago it was root canaled but I forgot to get it crowned. Then it broke so my dentist built it back up and said it really needed a crown. Umm...I never got around to it. It broke again but since it was root canaled it did...
