My Poor Daughter
May 24, 2017 6:09pm CST
My daughter has had the last of her teeth pulled earlier today. Poor kid! She doesn't look real happy. All of them are gone now. Toward the last of next month she will go in for the first fitting on her new dentures. I am so envious. Sure wish I could get mine. It is weird that she and my grandson both have Medicaid and that is what is paying for her dentures. But me, that needs the dentures so badly, can't get medicaid.

My mum needs to do that. Ever since she started injecting herself with insulin her teeth started rotting. The uppers in front are pretty much gone. She keeps stalling because she has Special Olympic events coming up and she doesn't want to look like a "goof" as she calls it while at the events. I have to remind her that her friends won't tease her or anything. Mum has Medicare and I have Medicade. I always thought Medicare was better than the other.

That's the first time I've heard of Medicaid paying for dental. They usually don't cover that or glasses. You daughter may not look happy now but she will be in about a month. Bad teeth tend to make us feel bad all over, not to mention the wonderful smile she will have.

I had my last 10 teeth pulled all at once in December @celticeagle so I know how she feels. It cost me $3200 to have them pulled and a denture. Even though I have a dental plan, it doesn't cover any extractions or dentures and it ticked me off.
