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!

Had dental implants on lower jaw aroung 15 years ago (when I had a real income). After replacing the "clips" at least once per year, the dentist says that the bar has worn out, and the best way to deal with this is to replace the bar and add a permanent type clip feature. Cost would be over $13,000.00. I am currently on social security disability (multiple sclerosis) therefore there is no way I can afford this procedure. Have trouble chewing and swallowing due to the loose implant denture. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I have been disabled since 2009 after years of chronic pain from injury and disease in my neck,mid and lower back along with multiple auto immune issues we thyroid and adrenal tumor causing multiple health issues invluding life threatening events and I thought that was the worst until I started suffering from gum disease,tooth and bone loss that started in 2008 after Graves disease undiagnosed until last year caused my mental health to fail rapidly. Of all this illness and pain wasn't enough last year I suffered injury to over half my mouth but with no insurance I received no dental or medical care. I can no longer eat solid food I am I'm the bed 80 percent of the time in complete agony. I need full extractions of what's left of the broken and infected teeth, bone grafting and metal bridges to keep bone loss from getting worse and to stabilize my upper and lower areas to support denture/implants. It's causing poor quality of life including pain, sleepless nights, depression lack of relationships including my young children who help take care of daily chores I am unable to do. I want my life back to be the best mom,daughter,sister and future wife I can be without the constant darkness and pain I have been suffering for over 15 years.my email is blueshadowmom@gmail.com any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. God bless everyone in pain and those who help others.

All of my teeth have feelings and I need the feelings to be removed and new caps put on and I have three teeth missing on the bottom. The dentist that I went to see in Mexico said that my entire mouth was filled up with infection and I needed to have something done immediately or it would affect my total hip and possibly get it the infection into my blood
