Disabled Without Dental Care

Disabled without dental care? I have researched this topic at length for various reasons. The NFDH is a great resource for more information. If you know someone who is disabled and does not have dental coverage, consider visiting the NFDH. In addition, check with your local social services and support groups. Many support groups specific to a given diability can provide a wealth of information for not only dental work but for free medical services as well.

If you are reading this and have additional information/resources, please send me an email. I will gladly research the information add it to my site. Far too often people seem to forget about the importance of dental care especially for the disabled. Focus is always on medical and for good reason, but let's not forget about dental care for the disabled.

I have spent years participating in various online forums dedicated to helping the poor find dental care. Unfortunately, most of the poor are disabled and do not have the means to work nor commute very far. Dental care for the disabled has always been of interest to me simply because most advocates focus on health care. I will continue to research this subject and post updates as they become available. Take care and God Bless!

Oh does it get any worse? I just lost my wife last January 6th 2018. She lost her battle with cancer. However I do pray to God everyday and thank him for what I do have. I trust in the lord that he will answer my prayers. I do know my wife is with him now with no more pain and suffering. There definitely anther angle in Haven.

Disabled service connected veteran needs major dental work done. Causing serious health issues. Have no lower teeth at all due to ending up in hospital with severe infection all had to be removed. Now same with uppers and was instructed and referred to have them removed before ending up in hospital again. Original oral surgeon doesn't want to remove them because of money. It's patient service now days not patient care. It's sad I have to walk around with no smile and risk ending up in hospital again because the veterans administration will not cover my dental. Fact is they caused the issue in the first place. Where do I get help? I choose not to be disabled have no choice. Please anyone have an answer or solution I'm tired of walking around with what little teeth I got. What I have are mostly broke off at the gums. No reason for a service disabled veteran to walk around like this. 219-916-3883 if you have a answer

Hi. God Bless you for wanting to advocate. It's so frustrating, not to mention depressing too. I'm on disability and sadly the benefits are next to none. I have been in 2 major car accidents, the 2nd one I wasn't expected to live and had major injuries and ribs had to be reconstructed with titanium plating. The first accident I was in, my teeth were broken off. Well actually I had porcelain veneers and the posts had broken off inside my gums and unable to be saved. Thus starting my nightmare of dentures, pain, bone loss, and now I can't eat. Not anything with much solidity anyway. I have to take my bottom denture out to even attempt to eat. They don't fit because of the bone loss. I have next to no bone left. The upper plate fits better than the lower, but I have to put cotton in it and adhesive and pray that they stay put. I've stopped eating in public because I have to take them out to eat. They constantly hurt my mouth either slicing my gums or making them raw. It's a 24 hour 365 day reminder.. And the emotional /mental aspect of it! Don't get me started with that. I've been dealing with this since I was 27 or 28 and I will be 50 this May. It's just so sad that something so important to one's health, and I'm talking mentally as well, has to be next to impossible for alot people to be able to have done. It should not be looked at as a privelage. I didn't ask to be in the situation I'm in. Or to have been in 2 major car accidents. I was a hard worker before that all happened. If that's not bad enough.. And dental work I can't afford too.. So dehumanizing.. Demoralizing. Everyone and I do mean everyone deserves to have good teeth, to be able to eat, to be able to feel good about themselves. I apologize for such a lengthy comment.. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me a chance to give my 2 cents worth. God Bless you to overflowing!! 😊
