Thats a great idea and if I knew how to get ahold of someone in show business I sure would suggest that idea. Its true though, there are so many of us that need help and are good people and there just isnt anyone out there to help us. Its funny cause the rich people give donations to organisations that they dont even know there given to just to get a tax break. Id love for there to be a program giving to those who have teeth or mouth problems that cant afford to pay for the help they need for one reason or another. Maybe we should try to organize a charity for that purpose alone. Any ideas?
That truly is a great idea.
They have a show now where they go out and help build houses for people.
They have a T.V. show where they help obese people(Biggest loser)
They have all these game shows like Deal or no Deal.
Why can't they have a show where they go out on the road and help people with their smile?
They use to have the Swan show on T.V.
Maybe it's time for a T.V. Show that helps people put their smile back on!
They can call it, Put A Smile On your Face and make the world a better place!
Im humling asking, and pleading with Dentist, Oral Surgeons, Oral specialist.
This country is or very shortly will be in crisis whre the lives of people are at. WHY..... most of arent the rich and famos. We are average, sometimes below average type incomes. You were drs before you recieved your other titles.... wasn't there an oath you gentlmen and ladies took the Hippicratic- that what is kind looks that these days....Im far from a cold person, so please do not take me that way. I'm just tired and frustated, at living in a nation where the insurace companys, seem to run alot of what you dentists , and oral surgeons, seem to operate your offices today. God only kwows what all fields this touchs. Im staying on this one for now. There are thousands and Im probly underestimating, of people that requiere your services, and are getting turned away, depending on their needs, and of course the ALMIGHTY DOLLOR , what happened to really caring about your chosen profession?
Certainly there has be some of you, well I know there is 1 of you, I won't give any name but he did take time to post on the site.
We all weren't born with a silver spoon in our mouth,, might of cause dental probems later anyway... want to keep it somewhat lite..I will give my own example, abreviated at best I can, you are welcome to go to my profile you will see me talking about my problem, My case would be this, I m 57, I have 2 daughteres and 6 grand childred. Not that old really, I could or cound not have some healthy, fuctional time left, or not.
Yet, unfortunatly, I am disabled for over 20 years now, and so being in Ca. I have medi-cal tthat has limited coverage for dental. They are helpful to a point.. I also have medicare, but for the most I dont' think they deal with this, now you oral surgens would know the answer does medicare cover the surgery part of needing oral surgeon work.. in my case.. I have had 2 sets of dentures in7 years, the firsrt set I was never able to wear the bottoms at all, and then shortly there after I started haveing trouble with the top dentures, the Dr had quit taking medical before I was really done, hindsite.... Well during this perios of 7 years of my teeth. or I should my top denturess being in and of my mouth starting with a few times a day till now, with 2nd set of dentures same problem bottoms don't stay, and tops havent gotten where they are out way more in.. Some of you may be thinking how sad, we hate hearing things like that. walk in my shoes or should I say a day taking teeth in and out contiuously. THIS IS NOT COSMETIC SURGERY, I REPEAT THIS IS NOT COSMETIC SURGERY, and more of us are just want to have life again, we were born with teeth for a reason , having teeth that work shoud never be opitonal. you start digesting your food in your mouth but you know that. I will try to shorten this and more later, and you can always read about my dental travesty on my profile. and posts.. So fast forward, I have whats called Barreats esphagas which Im sure you what this precancer of esphagas. I all so have a ulcer histor, including my esphagas. Well when cant wear dentures and their our out 90 % of time you swallow a great deal of saliva that equals acid, which is a enemy to my digestive track like giveing some sugar who has diabietes.
fast forward this year I fially saved a little money to go to a non medi-cal dentist, thought it was 't dentures fault, lo and behold, it was THAT I HAD SOME TYPE OF RIDGE OR BUMP THEY HAD A NAME I DONT REMEMBER,ALL I KNOW IS THIS IS THE MAJOR REASON i HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO WEAR MY TOP DENTURES THEREFOR NO BOTTOMS. you can imagine, going from being excited about now maybe I can figure some way to pay for real or good dentures.. he was repuable and gracious, but no less the reality was not very hope for me. secondly I have strong gag reflex right wear the bck of top dentures the pallet part mormally sits. add that to my child size mouth... he said couldnt' do anything for the top but maybe he could put some type implant in bottom, I was litally crying, Mr friend was there and composd she said certainly there are people worse then her out there, he of course, and he said to see a speclialis of some type a oral sometjhing who deals with mouth issues and dentures..
He conultion also cost me more, any way said about the same thing more a little detailed, fine man... Said there was hope, that yes I would need a specail denture, one without the pallet part, and that would require, 4 implants, I was tearing up again, and he contined to say that then the bottom would need 2, he thru all of this and said the cost would be around 9.000. He could of said million at point.. see at first I was excited, ane when he came the amout Im thinkin we have one credit for that amount, and the are little almost paid off. then the bomb came, He said my costs is not the major cost that would be the oral surgeon, he does the posts for implants a whopping 2,400 or 2,600 for each one may have money but i can couunt,, his cost would be app 14,000 now I was officall GIVING UP AND WISH SOME ONE WOULD JUST ME OUT OF MY MISERY, BUT I CONTINUED TO LISTEN .
IM skipping the rest if you wish to know more you can look at my profile.... and posts on this, I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS there on this site on lots and lots and lots of people going simular things. Im tired of feeing sick and nausesous on a continuing bais is and at time vomit because of it, because of the acid and the bacteria that I pick from contanting in and out with teeth with mouth guard so I don't chew down and a blister with.. I wont keep repeating what is already in profile and earlier posts.
We have one dentist who risked maybe he didnt have give his name neverless he still came on here and basically said the insurance companys kind own the dentist and probably I would imagi ne the oral surgens...
