  • Depending on the state in which you live, there are now some lower cost dental insurance programs that will accept pre existing conditions. It helps to lower the cost. You might also contact your state dental association and see if they know of any oral surgeons who do charity care or have free clinic weekends scheduled. It would be worth driving to get help. I know it is tough. I have about 8 broken teeth. I am waiting for income tax time to have them all pulled and get partial dentures. Good luck. With all of the evidence on how dental problems impact healh, there should be more available.
